I would love Ampache backend support so I would be able to use audioplayer with my smartphone easily.

So, audioplayer is useless to at least 25% of the OC/NC users. I'll use Plex.

Hello @HLFH
we are happy to take any knowledgeable support to develop this kind of backend.
It should not be developed into AP - but as an add-on for the app. So a perfect place for several developers to contribute.

and with many thousand users, AP does not seem that useless :-)

@HLFH If Audio Player is useful for up to 75% of *cloud users, we have achieved more than we had imagined or dreamed three months ago.

I agree with @Rello. Some features that a significant minority needs should be developed as an add-on rather than as part of the app.

@xraMsamohT @Rello I hope so. You are the perfect app to listen to music on *cloud. I'm just frustrated we don't have since the beginning of *cloud a fully working music app. Ok. I'm noting that AP will gratefully accept an Ampache add-on if someone of the *cloud community has done it. Still, Ampache backend was one of the main features within the outdated *cloud Music app. I understand your dream team has a different strategy and I accept it :) Thank you for the nice answer and have a good continuation!

Why you Guys not just using the plugin puplished over there?
it is an open plugin for owncloud and the far better nextcloud. This plugin is working flawlessly for me on my nextcloud server.

@michaelarlt Are you kidding? owncloud/music#90

It has been 4 years that the ownCloud Music plugin does not work.

There is no 'just'. It required deep integration into the backend and DB tables of AP.

As mentioned: it will not happen within AP due to flexibility and maintainability.

As mentioned: it would be the perfect showcase to implement a separate and clean Ampache App which connects to AP.

if anyone with the dev knowledge could help with his own app, it would be great.
Or put up a bugbounty to find one.

For AP, onlinestreams or flac are much higher valued on the roadmap....
