       ample - Ample MP3 server


       ample [OPTION] [PATH...]


       ample  Ample  is  an MP3 server that allows you to listen to your music that can be stored
       locally or remotely. It does not intend to support mixing, radio shows etc. It's  just  an
       easy  way  to  listen  to your MP3's everywhere using the "open location" features already
       present in XMMS, WinAmp and Media Player.   After  installing,  configuring  and  starting
       ample,  try  connecting  to  http://server:1234/  with the "open location" feature of your
       favourite MP3 player or http://server:1234/index.html with your favourite web browser.

              for details.

       -m FILE --htmlfile=FILE
              Use   FILE   as   HTML  template  instead  of  the  default  /etc/ample.html.   See

              These are path(s) to files or directories that Ample can use to populate it's  list
              of  MP3's.  If  PATH  is  a  directory, all files (possibly recursively, see the -n
              option above) will be added. If PATH is a regular file ending with .mp3 it will  be
              added  and if it is a regular file ending with .m3u (MP3 playlist) the files listed
              in it will be added.


              The default config file (another file may be used, see the -f  option  above).  See
              ample.conf(5) for further details.

              The default HTML template file (another file may be used, see the -m option above).
              See ample.html(5) for further details.


       Of course totally bugfree or your money back :-)
