Karaoke Eternal

Host awesome karaoke parties where everyone can easily find and queue songs from their phone's browser. The player is also fully browser-based with support for MP3+G, MP4 videos and WebGL visualizations. The server is self-hosted and runs on nearly everything.

Getting Started

Karaoke Eternal basically has 3 parts. You can jump to the documentation for each below, or Quick Start to get up and running step-by-step.

  • App: Fast, modern mobile browser app designed for "karaoke conditions"
  • Player: Just another part of the browser app, but meant to run fullscreen on the system handling audio/video for a room
  • Server: Runs on almost any OS and hardware to serve the app and your media files
