From the Ubuntu package information:
- mt-daapd, now known as the Firefly Media Server, is a DAAP (Digital Audio Access Protocol) server that works with most POSIX-compatible operating systems. It allows you to share your music collection over the local network using the DAAP protocol also used by Apple's iTunes.
Popular uses of the Firefly Media Server include serving your digital music library to iTunes clients and/or SoundBridge devices from Roku.
