NymphCast

NymphCast

 

NymphCast is a software solution which turns your choice of Linux-capable hardware into an audio and video source for a television or powered speakers. It enables the streaming of audio and video over the network from a wide range of client devices, as well as the streaming of internet media to a NymphCast server, controlled by a client device.

 
Setting up NymphCast Install on your own hardware, connect it to a TV, powered speakers or Hi-Fi system. You're now ready to experience NymphCast.
 

Use your own hardware: NymphCast can be installed on a wide range of hardware, including Raspberry Pis and similar. Currently supported platforms are the Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi Zero (W), with a (currently experimental) ready-to use SD card image available for Raspberry Pi 2, 3(+) and 4. See the downloads page over at Github.

Note: NymphCast is still in Alpha-level development. Stability issues and bugs are to be expected. Tickets for issues are most welcome.

 

Easy control

With the NymphCast Player application (for PC/Mac) or NymphCast Player app for Android, it is easy find and control NymphCast devices on the local network. Play back music and video, start and control NymphCast apps, all from NymphCast Player.

You can download binary builds of the NymphCast Player for Windows & Android on the downloads page over at Github.

Individual applications can also integrate NymphCast support directly using the provided client SDK, allowing them to transfer local playback to a remote NymphCast device.
