       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.


       -p NUM --port=NUM
              Listen to TCP port NUM, default is 1234.

       -o --order
              When a list of files is requested,  play  them  in  alphabetical

       -c NUM --clients=NUM
              Allow a maximum of NUM clients to be connected at the same time.

       -n --norecursive
              Don't  automatically  index  files in subdirs of the directories
              being indexed

       -f FILE --conffile=FILE
              Use   FILE   as   config   file   instead   of    the    default
              /etc/ample/ample.conf.  See ample.conf(5) for details.

       -m FILE --htmlfile=FILE
              Use   FILE   as   HTML   template   instead   of   the   default
              /etc/ample/ample.html.  See ample.html(5) for details.

       -h --help
              Display help message and exit.

       -d [NUM] --debug[=NUM]
              Print debug messages, a higher value of NUM means more detail.

       -t --trace
              Disables forking and backgrounding, useful for debugging.

       -v --version
              Display version information and exit.

       -i --pidfile [PIDFILE]
              Write a PIDFILE to handle ample as a daemon

              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 :-)
