What makes Astiga different to YouTube Music?

YouTube Music and Astiga are similar services. You can stream your own music library to your devices inside your home or outside.

There are also some big differences. Astiga is run independently by indie-developers, whereas YouTube Music is run by the "Big-Tech" behemoth, Google. What are the big differences?

Your library

You, not an algorithm, are your own best curator. We don't believe in pushing music on you that you don't want and inaccurate "recommendations". Astiga uses your own library, curated by yourself.

No missing songs

Missing songs is a common problem in YouTube Music. Sometimes you can get missing tracks in the middle of albums. With Astiga it's your music, so all your albums are complete.

No limits

YouTube Music allows a maximum of 100k tracks in your personal library. With Astiga, there's no limit to your music library size.

Privacy by default

We make money by linking you to your music, wherever you are. We don't sell advertisements and we don't sell your data.

Choose your own player

You are not forced to use the YouTube Music app or any other software. Astiga is Subsonic compatible; you can use the official app or any Subsonic music client to play and sync your music.

Choose your storage

We don't force you to store your music in one place. Instead, we have connectors to all the major cloud storage providers. This means you are in control of where you store your music.

Audiophiles may apply

YouTube Music does not support high quality audio; at most it streams 256 kbps AAC. With Astiga you can stream your own HD or lossless audio to any of your devices, even on mobile connections.

Your library, your way

Astiga allows you to re-tag your music so it can be organized in different ways. Tired of being forced into a user experience you don't want? Then rename, re-tag and re-organize your music as you want!

Full search of your library

It's 2021, and YouTube Music still doesn't support searching of your uploads properly. Astiga just searches your private music library, giving instant, accurate results.

Want your music back?

With YouTube Music, if you want to get your music uploads back on your computer you need to order a new "Takeout", a convoluted export process which oftentimes misses tracks and loses artwork and tags. No such problems with Astiga: simply download from your cloud storage provider.

Don't take our word for it...

The music streaming service you control

Astiga is like your own private Spotify; a music streaming service that connects your to your music, wherever you are.

Wide storage support

Astiga supports a plethora of cloud storage services, including Google Drive, OneDrive (for Business), Dropbox, Amazon S3 (and S3-compatible providers such as Wasabi or DigitalOcean Spaces), Backblaze B2, FTP(S), WebDAV (like ownCloud, Yandex, Synology) and SFTP.

Works wherever you are

Astiga works in your home and out on the road. The official Astiga app supports Android Auto, allowing you to easily use Astiga while driving, plus you can synchronise for offline access.

Your home music network

Astiga's app supports Chromecast, and you can stream to your browser. There is support for your Google Home, allowing you to easily play back your music without using your phone.

Wide file format support

Astiga supports MP3, AAC (MP4), OGG, Opus, WebM, WAV, ALAC and FLAC.

Includes podcasts

Keep up to date with your favourite podcasts by storing them with Astiga. Download for offline access and to listen on a plan, in a car...

Offline music

We don't all have high speed mobile Internet nor unlimited mobile data plans. This makes offline important. Astiga allows synchronisation to your devices for offline, local playback. Ideal when travelling!

Switching from YouTube Music?

Ready to make the move? Here are the steps you need to follow. Remember we're always here to help you make the move!

If your music library is currently in YouTube Music, you'll need to download it using Takeout.

Altenatively, you might have your music collection already on your computer, in which case you don't need to do anything at all.

Once your music collection is on your computer, you can upload it to any one of the storage services that Astiga supports. Or, you can setup pCloud as part of your Astiga signup process.

While that's uploading - sign up to Astiga:

Let's get started!

Once you log in, you can connect Astiga to your music library.

On the Astiga home page, under Add storage, click your storage provider:

Enter your username and password for your storage provider, and then Astiga can begin synchronising with your music library.

You can immediately browse your music library via its files and folders, or wait for Astiga to synchronise with your library so you can explore your albums, artists, genres and more.

In the meantime, you can add podcast feeds and experiment with mobile apps to connect to Astiga.
