MusicLibraryPlayer ~ Server Side Player


Music Library & Player utilizes PHP and vanilla javascript to deliver your web-accessible music library via HTML5 audio in a fully responsive and modern interface.

The library does not require a database back-end. It parses the directory structure, best suited for a [ROOT]/[ARTIST]/[ALBUM]/[TRACKS] type of layout. This isn’t required, but makes for the best user experience. Random playlists can also be generated.

The code contained in this script has not been minified. It is written in long form and is well-documented for ease of use and customization.

Individual tracks are optionally presented with download links. Minimal effort has been put into limiting the reach of the player and download links. It is limited, by default, to the three audio file types that are supported by HTML5. It is advised that you password protect the Music Library & Player directory using htaccess or other method to restrict public access.

Features:
  • Responsive web music library and player
  • HTML5 or m3u file
  • Perfect for a NAS or personal website
  • Easy to setup with little to no programming
  • Uses PHP, vanilla javascript, and html5media
  • No database back-end. Directories are parsed into Artist/Album/Track playlists
  • Open Source MIT License
