Jukebox for Source – Streaming Music System v0.5.5.0 Beta

Jukebox for Source is a fully featured music streaming plug-in for SourceMod. It is designed to offer a complete solution for server admins who want to enrich their server’s character and overall experience and places heavy value on social play. Jukebox uniquely offers a searchable and dynamic interface similar to those of many other music players, such as iTunes and WinAmp.

Jukebox is compatible with all Source engine mods on both Linux and Windows. For admins, Jukebox also includes a web-based suite of tools for uploading and managing your music library.
