NAME
       ample - Ample MP3 server

SYNOPSIS
       ample [OPTION] [PATH...]

DESCRIPTION
       ample  Ample  is	 an MP3	server that allows you to listen to your music
       that can	be stored locally or remotely. It does not intend  to  support
       mixing,	radio shows etc. It's just an easy way to listen to your MP3's
       everywhere using	the "open location" features already present in	 XMMS,
       WinAmp  and  Media  Player.  After installing, configuring and starting
       ample, try connecting to	http://server:1234/ with the  "open  location"
       feature	of  your favourite MP3 player or http://server:1234/index.html
       with your favourite web browser.

	      der.

	      (possibly	recursively, see the -n	option above) will  be	added.
	      If  PATH is a regular file ending	with .mp3 it will be added and
	      if it is a regular file ending  with  .m3u  (MP3	playlist)  the
	      files listed in it will be added.
