I got KavaTunes to install on my website quite easily, and I can view my music online. But if I try to choose a song to listen to, it says "Sorry, this song is not available." My computer connects to the Internet via wifi through a router, do I need to set up port forwarding so that KavaTunes on my website can access the music files on my computer? Does that also mean that KavaTunes only works if your computer is on??
You might have to set up port forwarding, but try going to the KavaTunes preferences->Music->Share Music->Make Alias. Then rebuild your catalog. This is currently working for me in terms of streaming to my own computer, but I haven't been able to test using a different computer as I'm currently at college, where all ingoing connections are blocked.
Thanks. I was able to get it to work on my domain. On my computer, I can now go to mydomain/music and see my music and play it. But I have had other people try to do it, but they can only see my music. If they click on a song to play it, there is a blue Q under the song name.

Thanks, Pace, for putting up the live example. Enjoyed listening to your piano compositions. So I take it that music publishing is primarily for original recordings that you own the copyrights to? From the description of KavaTunes on their website, they seem to ignore the issue of copyright. It sounds like an easy way to share music, legal or otherwise. I wonder if anyone has tried to put up their entire music library on the internet with KavaTunes, and if there was any consequences for doing so.
Glad you enjoyed the piano compositions
When you publish using KavaTunes, a message appears in the footer saying "Don't steal music", but that's pretty much the only mention on the web interface. I believe they do mention copyright somewhere else, though I can't remember where.
Still, the fact that you can't publish online without resorting to manual modifications is probably there precisely because KavaTunes would otherwise be as great a way to share music as peer to peer networks.
Pace, so are you saying that the ONLY way for others to be able to listen to your music is if you modify some of the files as in your instructions? Because as I said above, anyone not in my local network gets the blue Q under the song name and can't listen to any songs. Is that because the program isn't set up for that and you have to modify the files, or could my website host not be allowing the streaming? (Or both?)
Also, I'm guessing that the "Don't steal music" only shows if you upload your catalog with the setting to be able to download the songs. I want to have my music on my website for people to listen to, but not to be able to download since they aren't songs I wrote. So I don't have the option to download the songs checked, and I never saw that message.
