This Friday I'll be making real cocktails at virtual @SeaGL (Seattle GNU/Linux conference). Source code for the menu is up if you want to buy ingredients and follow along. The non-drinky part of the program looks great too! Registration is free/optional. osem.seagl.org/conferences/sea

What's your favorite self-hosted FLOSS media server?

* ampache
* kodi
* mediagoblin

I'm looking for something to stream at home (to rhythmbox, set-top TV computer, mobile devices) at least home videos, and music, but ideally more types of media too. DLNA and DAAP look useful.

For posterity: rdfind did the job well. Saved me 500GB of space!

Life goal, check: ask Google to delete YouTube data. myaccount.google.com/deleteser makes it easy. Most of the 40k+ videos were from my automatic chicken door.
