The full rpm description indicates: madsonic is an application adapted as a contrib for SMEserver
Madsonic is a free audio and video web based streamer for Linux, Windows, and Mac. There are several mobile and portable apps associated with it, and it has server transcoding capabilities allowing the client to stream as effortlessly as possible. Use it to share your music with friends, or to listen to your own music while at work.
You can stream to multiple players simultaneously, for instance to one player in your kitchen and another in your living room. Madsonic is designed to handle very large music collections (hundreds of gigabytes), and has genre and tag capabilities. Although optimized for MP3 streaming, it works for any audio or video format that can stream over HTTP, for instance AAC and OGG. By using transcoder plug-ins, Subsonic supports on-the-fly conversion and streaming of virtually any audio format, including WMA, FLAC, APE, Musepack, WavPack and Shorten.
If you have constrained bandwidth, you may set an upper limit for the bitrate of the music streams. Madsonic will then automatically resample the music to a suitable bitrate. In addition to being a streaming media server, Madsonic works very well as a local jukebox. The intuitive web interface, as well as search and index facilities, are optimized for efficient browsing through large media libraries. Madsonic also comes with an integrated Podcast receiver, with many of the same features as you find in iTunes. Based on Java technology, Madsonic runs on most platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux and Unix variants.
