Ampache is a free software Web-based Audio file manager / web Media Server. The name is a play on the two words Apache and Amplifier. It was originally written to take advantage of Apache's Mod_mp3 but has since been adapted to use its own streaming method. Ampache's Mascot is a squirrel called Fraz. It was originally drawn by Kirsten Petersen and later digitized by Ben Shields. In 2008 Fraz was redesigned by Agnès Champavier. (Taken from wikipedia)
