Plex! Proprietary and licensed, I know, but it’s pretty slick and low effort

Interesting to not see Kodi mentioned. I thought about switching from Plex to it, have not gotten around to trying it out

as long as most smart tvs don't have kodi as an app, it's pretty useless

I know not everyone can afford it, but I have an Android TV device hooked to my TV with Kodi on it. With the right tech know-how, you can do the same with most Raspberry Pis, and they're not that expensive.

I am almost ashamed to say that I only use streaming nowadays (the big ones🤮) for the sake of praticality and to navigate in my content bubbles.

I passed a long time without any pc, and in my last one i used Winamp, and downloading entire discographies and burning cds, filling pen drives and shit. No more. Now mostly phone and earphones.

For stuff I have in local I use mpv or vlc.

Lately I've been really impressed with Tauon Music Box for Linux. I especially love the "Auto-theme from album art" feature which sets the color scheme based on the cover art, which is motivation to have it fetch cover art for you if you don't already have it :) Rhythmbox was my default before Tauon.

I also love musikcube to play music from the terminal, it's one of the most usable TUIs I've ever seen. It supports interacting with the terminal using the mouse really well, including right click menus and other advanced features not every terminal emulator has. It's almost like a GUI that just happens to use text.

I'm subscribed to Spotify Premium, so I use the official client sometimes. Other times, I play it through unofficial clients like ncspot (also in the terminal).

I use Groove Basin running off a machine in my house. https://github.com/andrewrk/groovebasin

There's open source personal cloud software called "Sandstorm" (similar in ideas to OwnCloud or NextCloud). I run that, and it has a bundled version of Groove Basin.

Unfortunately it's not a trivial thing to set up Sandstorm. If you're familiar with Linux it's not too hard, and they handle all of the DNS for you, but it's not simple.

After scrolling through all the replies, I'm embarrassed to admit YouTube and Spotify ...

In my defense, my ex still pays for premium. So, ya know, gotta milk it. I am sorry, anarchy gods, I am not worthy!

My experience of Raddle is that people dancing to the tune of the capitalist gods and consumerism are welcome as long as you're not attacking anyone else or calling capitalism a moral good.

Usually foobar2000 / winamp. jellyfin also works well when needing to stream away from home.
