    DAAP Media Player allows you to stream your music from a DAAP share such as mt-daapd (firefly), Rhythmbox, forked-daapd, tangerine, most NAS devices such as FreeNAS, QNAP servers, and older versions of iTunes.

    DAAP is a proprietary protocol similar to HTTP developed by Apple for use with iTunes music sharing. Still used by modern versions of iTunes, the computer community has reverse engineered an older version of this protocol for streaming their own music. This application provides this functionality on an Android device.

    DAAP Media Player is an open source application. Bugs and feature requests may be made at the official project page (

    Features include:
    * Stream music without downloading the whole song!
    * Search and voice search songs
    * Passwords
    * Handle multiple servers

    * artist information

    I love this app and using daily to access my Daap server. Would like to request a feature to download the song along with id3 tags like album title,artist,,genre and other meta information.

    Running DAAP as a plugin on openmediavault for raspberry pi 3 model B. It's glorious to have your own network attached radio service for social events.
