The fast spreading of smart mobile devices has changed the way people create and share multimedia contents. A recently proposed idea is to distribute contents opportunistically when devices are within each other's communication range. In this work we have seized this idea and designed and implemented a real-time music-sharing application that allows people to share a sound system for collective listening. The system utilizes a content-centric opportunistic networking middleware. The application provides an interface for users to play audio files stored in their own mobile devices through a shared jukebox that is within direct communication range. The jukebox plays the audio file that is first in queue in its playlist by streaming it from the publishing user device. All devices synchronize with the jukebox so that the users can observe the contents of the playlist on their displays in real-time. This paper presents the idea and motivation for such a system as well as its design and evaluation.
