Bring your music anywhere

Zeya is a media player that lets you bring your music to any computer with a web browser.

The client runs in any browser that supports a certain subset of the HTML 5 technologies— no Flash needed. No Silverlight, no applets, no plugins, no external players.

Zeya is free software. You may use it under the terms of the GNU Affero GPL, v.3 or (at your option) any later version.
