What is media hive?

media hive is a free program that lets you play your audio and video from anywhere using your favorite web browser.

Why use it?

  1. It makes large media collections quick and easy to navigate by offering multiple navigation modes (check out the videos in the instructions section), and by minimizing interface clutter (no artist wikis on the main page, for example).
  2. It features a truly streamable playlist. This means you can always modify the playlist in your browser while it's being played - even when using the embedded flash player.
  3. It makes it easy to choose what to play. Today that means that you can rate and filter your content; in the future, it will try to pick what you want to play so you don't have to.

What's new in version 0.9.3

This release adds the ability to play audio right from your browser using an embedded flash player. The stream is sent using RTMP - for the casual user this simply means that there won't be a buffering pause each time a new song starts, because the player doesn't have to fetch each song separately. And because the playlist is managed on the server and not by the flash player, you're able to modify your playlist even while the flash player is playing it.

This release also fixes a number of bugs, and tweaks the presentation of the interface a bit. Hope you like it.
