Zina 1.0 RC 1 – MP3 Streamer

Posted in Development Software, Fun Stuff, Linux, Site News, Utilities, Web Apps


Don’t be mistaken. Zina 1.0 RC 1 is not an MP3 player nor a jukebox that runs from your computer. Instead, it is a graphical interface engine that adds to your MP3 collection that can run on its own, embedded into an existing website.

Furthermore, if you run a CMS site such as Postnuke, PHPNuke, Xoops, Mambo, Drupal or e107, it has module for Zina to be plug onto the site. Think of it as Andromeda, it is similiar to that, except it is released under the GNU GPL.
