I use mt-daapd which is a simple install. It will serve up any
directory/directories of mp3/m4a files as if it were an iTunes program
sharing it's files and thus could be accessed by any computer on the LAN
capable of using an iTunes music server...like Rhytmbox, iTunes, etc.

Unfortunately, the one program that doesn't seem to be able to connect
is Amarok but perhaps that is because I give up too easily.
