    Trying it now from work. Downloaded the Android app then used LogMeIn to connect to my home computer and installed the AG server. The streaming over 3G is excellent! So far I'm impressed. I'd say the music quality is comparable to having the files on the phone's SD.

    What the heck, I can't even get to the server. You just pulled the app up and you logged in after setting up your server??

    The desktop server is a little lacking. You have to be looged in for it to run. Would be nice if it ran as a service.

    Anyone know where / if the music files are stored on the phone? Trying to figure out a way to connect my phone to a computer and play the songs through the speakers

    Just as an FYI, I wrapped the AudioGalaxy executable with an application called NTWrapper. I lets you run ordinary executables as a Windows (in my case Vista) service. To my surprise and delight it worked! That was my biggest beef with the AG server component, having to be logged in to run it.

    Can't stress how unbelievable this app is. I now can stream every mp3 I have on my home computer to my phone.

    Remote log in to my computer at home, get my mp3s I want, play them through my phone.

    Bam.

    Wow. Can't believe I didn't know about this before.

    Sorry so late - would you please tell me what settings you used to get this to work? I can add it as a service and it runs but it doesn't work. I must have some setting wrong.

    You have to run the app just as usual but you don't have to be logged in for it to run b/c you configure it to run as a service. This is important if you have multiple logins to your windows box. If you are the only one logging into to your computer and it auto-logins at bootup then the audiogalaxy system tray app will run anyway.

    I'm no expert (just started using it today) but I think the idea is that the music files and the system tray helper app (windows) run on one machine only. That machine must be logged in for the music to be indexed and streamed - unless you do the "run as service" fix discussed above. If you have the login to the website then you can stream that collection to your phone (or multiple ones) or the website. You don't need access to the computer to stream the music, just the audiogalaxy login. The only way you could combine your music collections together would be to copy them to the music watch folder on the machine that currently being indexed and sent to audiogalaxy's site. I don't think you can send streams from multiple computers but I could be wrong. You stream to audiogal from one machine but you can receive the stream from audiogal from multiple phones/browsers.

    Just right click on the start menu shortcut, choose properties and there you go.
