Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Stream music from your PC, Mac or Network Drive and access every album in your collection, creating playlists of your favourite music for instant playback.
None of the other music player apps we tried did what we wanted.
These are the must haves:
Reliably streams music directly from a PC, Mac, Time Capsule, or Network Drive.
Effortlessly supports tens of thousands of tracks.
Supports lossless FLAC and OPUS files as well as the usual mp3, m4a, aac, aif, wav.
Supports gapless playback.
Is easy to set up and has an intuitive and powerful user interface.
Provides excellent playlist management.
Can AirPlay audio to AppleTV or AirPort Express or a compatible device.
Can stream to Chromecast devices.
Scrobble to last.fm.
Groups album tracks based on your existing folder arrangement.
Extracts tags and album art embedded in audio files but also uses album art from files in your music folders.
We’ve worked hard to provide all of these in MusicStreamer!
If you like to listen to an entire album, simply tap play on it and that’s it. If you like to browse your music collection and queue up tracks as you go, this is really easy and doesn’t require you to make a playlist first. The Play Queue puts you in control and you can queue multiple tracks, albums, or playlists. Change your mind and re-order while playback is in progress or tap shuffle to mix it up.

What's New in Version 3.0
Thanks for using MusicStreamer! This update fixes a few bugs, including restoring Chromecast playback since a recent Chromecast update broke compatibility.
- Fixed the occasional double list of tracks when scrolling through an album on iOS 10.
- Fixed Play button not working after a specific sequence of adding and removing tracks.
- Fixed queuing tracks for playback and then changing WiFI network.
- Launching a playlist from a Home Screen icon now switches to the correct music source automatically.
- The artist name is now displayed for the current track in car mode.
If you like MusicStreamer, please tell your friends. This will allow us to add more features.
Finally, an easy to set up and use app to play my NAS (WDMyCloud) music library on my IPad.
I had to enter the IP address for my server to kick things off, but once it scanned my 1.3k album iTunes library (30mins) it was easy to find and play any album I have. It plays both Apple lossless and MP3s w/o any problems.
Some Suggestions to the Stratospherix developers for additional features:
*Upfront scan for NAS drives on local nwks.
*Show bitrate and file format in library
*Show bitrate and file format during playback
*Add an App FAQ and user forum to your website
Excellent job on this App- well worth $4!!!
Ps. I don't usually post App reviews, only if something is unusually good or bad. In this case, an excellent app for music playback!
Love it, please make aTV app!
My favorite alternative to iTunes Home Sharing. I have an USB hard drive connected to my AirPort Extreme Basestation to share my files. No more computer left on all day, and I don't need to convert my non-iTunes compatible audio files; needless duplicate libraries be gone.
MusicStreamer plays my mp3, FLAC, AAC, and ALAC files great over the network.
One issue I discovered is that Control Center for previous track does not work (iOS 10). Next track works, but previous will only restart the currently playing track.
Developer, please make a version for the Apple TV! The Infuse app is great for videos, but there is a niche to fill for a music streaming app.
Keep on truckin'.
This is exactly what I was looking for (after lots of trying). Very easy to set up, the app finds music on all of my network devices and then quickly indexes everything. Well worth the modest cost.
