Emptytree Seedy


Emptytree Seedy is a distributed digital music system. It is designed to operate in a multi-host, automatic and batch manner to simplify the encoding of an entire CD collection. Network operation is fault tolerant. When a host goes offline any pending encode work will be transferred to other hosts in the system. When a host comes online it can dynamically join the system and start ripping and encoding as need be. Operation can be controlled from any host.

Development focus is now on the listening side of things.


Before downloading, read the features and requirements in the documentation to see if emptytree seedy is what you need.
