I can't do subscription services and their changing copyrights. I have a couple of decades worth of my old rips + my bandcamp purchases (the best music service aroud for someone like me) + downloads that come with physical media. And I'm not talking about music services that let you upload your own stuff. They will transcode and very likely lose some of my files as well.

And definitely not a service Jeff Bezos has anything to do with, due to personal preference.

The 1TB sub of Icedrive is ALMOST exactly what I need, but I cannot mount and play on android, only on windows.

If someone has a workaround for above, that would be the best news.

I call my service Snotify. Only need access for my 1-2 devices. FLAC and 320 MP3 mostly.

Or alternatively a suggestion for a different cloud service I can stream to my android phone from, without transcoding, DRM checks etc. I don't have a possibility for a personal server in my abode unfortunately.
Yes it's called Jrivers

Been playing music on my phone nonstop streaming from my NAS using JRiver and JRemote for the past 14 hours or so. As a sort of backup I have Synology’s DS Audio setup as well. On my dedicated media PC I mostly use internet radio like RadioParadise etc. I do use Spotify, but I’m not really tied to any online streaming platform.
I have the same setup.

JRiver with their mobile app? I don’t see that many people using JRemote here. A weakness with the app is an inability to download tracks or albums (strictly streaming) so one always needs to have a wireless connection to play media. I’ve sort of offset this by using other apps to occasionally side-load media wirelessly if I know I might not be getting a connection.

Astiga looks like it may be an option. I haven't used it myself but I know the service was recently bought by Elsten Software who also make the excellent Bliss music library management software which I have been very happy with for years.
