Presenting: www/subsonic for FreeBSD

Subsonic is my favourite media transcoding/streaming server. I use it to stream my music library from my computer at home to my Android phone over 3G, including FLAC -> VBR MP3 transcoding to save on bandwidth. The www/subsonic port mitigates the hassle of installing the server on FreeBSD. It uses the WAR distribution of Subsonic and the Tomcat Java application server.

My HTC Espresso listening to Rock the House over Subsonic, sitting on a pile of CD jewel cases next to the Rock the House CD single.
