If I want to make use of Ubuntu One's mobile streaming service, how do I add (my own) music to Ubuntu One?

I mean, if I purchase music through the music store, the music automatically get synced. But how (or rather where) do I add my own collection for synchronization?

The easiest way to add all your own music is just to mark the folder it's in as being synced with Ubuntu One.

See Ubuntu One : Help : FAQs - How do I move my existing music to Ubuntu One? for details.

Basically, just right-click on your Music folder (or wherever your music is stored) and pick Ubuntu One > Synchronize this folder from the context menu. This will copy your music into your personal cloud, and then it's all available for streaming.
