Store Music Online with Amazon Cloud Drive

Last week Amazon set their sights on the mobile app market, launching their Appstore for Android. This week they’re attacking Android devices once again, but that’s not all—they’re getting into the online storage biz.

On Monday, they launched Amazon Cloud Drive and Amazon Cloud Player. Cloud Drive is an online storage space that lets you upload and store all of your digital files in one convenient place on the web. We’re talking music, pictures, videos, documents—if it’s digital, it can be stored on their servers.

But this isn’t anything new—other companies have their own versions of online storage. Apple gives MobileMe paid subscribers 20GB worth on iDisk. Microsoft provides 25GB of free storage with SkyDrive. And you get 2GB free with Dropbox, though you can opt for larger space for a monthly price. But if you’re a frequenter of Amazon, the Cloud Drive could suit you better, which provides you with 5GB free. You can also upgrade for free to 20GB of storage space once you’ve purchase an MP3 album.

Cloud Drive works with both Mac and PC, and the photos, videos and documents you store online will open up in their respective programs on your computer. The music files, in either MP3 or AAC format, can play via their web-based, streaming Cloud Player. It has basic play controls as well as playlist functionality. And with their digital music store app, Amazon MP3, Android device owners can stream their stored music directly on their phones or tablets.

Part 1. How to Store Music Online with Amazon Cloud Drive and Stream via Cloud Player?

To get started, check out Amazon’s walkthrough video to see how it works. Click on the video to begin playback

Step 1. Get Started

Just go to Amazon Cloud Drive to get set up. Click on the Get Started button, sign in to your Amazon account, and agree to the Cloud Drive terms of service. And that’s it! You now have 5GB of free online storage space.

Step 2. Upload Docs

Now that you have your account, you can start uploading your documents, images, vids, etc. Simply click on the Upload Files button and follow the directions. It’s intuitive and no different than any other online upload system, so you shouldn’t have any problems.


Large files will take longer to upload, but uploading a 70MB MP3 album shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes with a decent Internet connection.

Step 3. Start Steaming Music

Now that you have some music loaded, simply navigate to your music folder in Cloud Drive and click on the song you want to play. The Could Player should automatically open in a new window. You may have to agree to another set of terms of service before you can gain access to the player.

As your songs continue to upload, they will automatically populate into the Cloud Player. Use the controls in the bottom left to play, skip, pause, etc.

Step 4. Upgrade to 20GB for Free

Now, if you want to bypass the $20/year price for 20GB, just purchase an MP3 album from Amazon and you’ll automatically get it for free. What’s better? Paying $20 then buying an album, or just buying an album for less than $10? You save money and get something for your music library.

From the Cloud Player, click on the MP3 Store logo in the top right (or just click here). Search for an album you want and purchase, then click the Save it to your Amazon Cloud Drive button to transfer directly to Cloud Drive and Cloud Player.

Step 5. Stream on Android Devices

So far, it’s been a cinch. And if you own an Android device, streaming your stored music to your smartphone or tablet is just as easy. Just download the free Amazon MP3 app from the Amazon Appstore for Android or the Android Market.

Part 2. How to Solve can’t Store Music Online with Amazon Cloud Drive?

As you know, music has different audios. Sometimes music is not supported by Amazon Cloud Drive.

Tips: 5 Fun Things to Do with FreeNAS

If I asked the average user how they use FreeNAS, they’d probably answer “back up and store files”. While that’s both practical and important, it’s also a bit boring. The software is designed for small and home offices but if you’ve got a system at home, you’re probably wondering what kind of fun you can have with it.

To that end, we’ve rounded up five of the more interesting ways you can use FreeNAS. Some of the tutorials I’ll link to make the assumption you’ve already built and set up your system. If you need some help with that, check out our official FreeNAS guide to hardware design and the FreeNAS YouTube channel.

Many of these projects make extensive use of the plugins system. An overview of plugins and a full list of the ones available can be found in the FreeNAS documentation. The guides range from a simple plugin installation to some command line hacking so make sure you’re comfortable with the difficulty level before attempting any tutorial.

1. Set Up the Ultimate Entertainment Device

Media Streaming

FreeNAS is a file server by nature—in order to turn it into a media server, you’ll need to install a few plugins to allow the system to download and stream media.

There are several combinations of plugins you can install depending on the type of media you’ll be using—the most popular being Transmission (torrenting) and Plex Media Server (streaming). However, there are many other plugins that specialize in specific media types such as Firefly (music), Mylar (comic books), Sickbeard (TV shows), and CouchPotato (NZB/torrents).

If you need to stream to a DLNA device such as a PS3 or XBox One, you can install MiniDLNA by following this tutorial from joeschmuck of the FreeNAS forums.

2. Host a Personal Cloud

OwncloudWith some of the horror stories out there about privacy breaches, some people are understandably on edge about handing over their documents and photos to a third-party. Now you can set up a secure personal cloud on FreeNAS that only you and authorized users have access to. Once you get OwnCloud set up, it’s like having a personal Dropbox. The easiest way to do this is through the official plugin located in the Plugin tab.

For more control, you can also configure OwnCloud manually—there are several ways to do that. Here’s a video tutorial from DrKK of the forums for his method and the corresponding forum thread.

Here’s an alternative method from Josh Parker Ruehlig who wrote many of the FreeNAS plugins.

3. Share and Distribute Files Privately

In a similar vein, you can also use FreeNASbittorrent-sync-logo to share files and pictures with friends and family with the Bittorrent Sync plugin. It functions a bit like Dropbox but BTSync is a peer-to-peer sharing application—unlike the cloud, all the files are stored locally on each device and updated when changes are made. This is useful for sharing photos or files across several computers regardless of size. Because you’ll be downloading from many sources, it’s also vastly faster than a cloud.

Here’s our official video tutorial for setting up BTsync. It’s relatively straightforward, and it explains in step-by-step detail how to configure FreeNAS first and then set up the plugin.

4. Set up a Private Voice Chat Server

mumbleYou can configure a FreeNAS system with Mumble. If you’re not familiar with Mumble, it’s an Open Source voice over IP application that enables you to voice chat with friends over a private and secure system. There’s no limit to how many people can join a particular chat; the maximum depends on the particular server.

This particular project takes some effort to set up. This tutorial again comes courtesy of DrKK and demonstrates how to set up your own Murmur server using FreeNAS.

5. Deploy a Minecraft Server

minecraftLove Minecraft? You’ll be happy to know you can configure your FreeNAS system to host a Minecraft server. Josh Parker Ruehlig, the person responsible for the FreeNAS MineOS plugin, created a video and forum thread to demonstrate how to set it up. As he points out, the MineOS plugin gives you the advantage of being able to manage your servers via a web UI.

Prior to the plugin, you had to install Minecraft from scratch into a jail. Alternatively, you can do just that as community member Cyberjock demonstrates in this tutorial.

A Few Final Notes

First and foremost, it’s up to you to secure your system, follow best practices, and make sure your data recovery plan is adequate. None of these projects mean very much if your files are compromised or corrupted by malware.

For more project ideas, I highly recommend browsing the FreeNAS forums and signing up for an account. It’s a huge repository of great information. If you’re confused about a topic, post or do a search in the forums. Chances are you’ll find something or someone to help you.

This is just the beginning of what you can do with FreeNAS. The DIY aspect of FreeNAS means that there are literally thousands of iterations of hardware combinations and use cases. Keep in mind the FreeNAS plugin system is based on FreeBSD jails and the PBI system from PC-BSD which means advanced users can install any software they want using the FreeBSD package tools, opening up even more possibilities for your NAS.
