Hi

I am looking for an alternative to google music for streaming my music from my computer to the cloud and then from the cloud to my android phone. I can't use Google Music because i don't want to use my credit card.

I have had a look at spotify and subsonic but soptify cost's for the phone app and subsonic costs after 30 days. I have also had a look at amazon cloud player but that just doesnt give you enough space.

Any other programs i should try????

I believe you can stream from your computer using Winamp + SHOUTcast and then listen to the stream using Winamp for Android.

What phone do you have? You may be able to just buy a large micro SD card (ex: 32 GB) and use that and just skip the streaming step, it depends on if you phone supports an SD card that large.

Is there a specific reason you want to stream it?

I want to stream my music from my computer so that i can listen to all of my music on my phone but the storage space on my phone is not very big. And i dont want to have to leave my computer on so that i can listen to my music on my phone.

Well, there's no way to stream music stored on your computer when the computer is off.

But isnt that exactly what google music would do??

You upload your music to google and then you can access on your android anytime

What you ask is impossible. Your computer must be on (connected to the internet).
You can only stream what you have stored on the google music server, or any other cloud storage.

How do you cost this out BTW
