Five is a system designed to efficiently extend the reach of your media to various personal devices such as your cell phone, laptop, and work PC. Currently the system includes a reference server implementation and an Android client, with a proof-of-concept desktop Linux version coming soon. The project is in early alpha status, however we are rapidly approaching a stable release. If you're excited by this idea, please contact any of the team members to help out!
How it works:
Passive synchronization is used to deliver and organize meta information about deliverable content so the user experience implies local data, even when streaming would be necessary. This includes artist and album associations, artwork, track listings, etc. When the user engages the music player, they are presented with a list of familiar content without utilizing network resources. Only when attempting to play a track (that is not in cache) does the system resort to the network for streaming.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: New Release
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
