Anyone want to share their iTunes Libraries? - Page 9

post #321 of 366
Awww, gee guys. 8)

This thread really should be a sticky, maybe even a permanent part of the AppleInsider website. Maybe some sort of list with people's names and general library info that want to be a part of it. Don't know how non-static IP's would be handled though, someone more familiar with these things wanna chime in?

Those with non static IPs could consider going to www.dyndns.org/ or similar. Get a domain alias and run a program on your computer to keep it auto-updated with your changing IP. It's fairly painless to do...

check people's profiles for an "iTunes Music Library address"

If it's worthwhile, I'll be more inclined to leave it up, but if it's a terrible experience I may as well not bother. Thanks in advance.

Here's today's IP:

132.206.230.53

And a question as well: next week I should be getting DSL at home. My provider has a 10 Gig download/5 Gig upload limit per month. How, if at all, does streaming play into this?

A newbie testing. A confirmation that it works would be greatly appreciated. Can I somehow 'see' whether somebody is streaming from my library.

Many thanks,
DirkS

Sorry, can't seem to connect (and I can get other addresses to work).

Yes, you can see if anyone is connected: the number of users shows up in under "Preferences->Sharing"

Gabid - Many thanks! I will keep trying (and reading). I am on a Dutch cable network and inhome on AirPort. I am still not sure on the firewall settings.

Thanks again,

No problem! I'm far from being a network wiz so I'm afraid I don't have any port or firewall advice to share, but I'm sure someone here will be able to help you along.

Good luck! I'll be sure to try again when you post anew.

What's worse? That I have Died In Your Arms Tonight? Or that someone is listening to it?

How do you find out who is listening to what? and who is listing <with out konfabulator>?

Open Terminal and type: lsof | grep mp3
Replace mp3 with m4a for AAC files.

Do you get a message of any kind if you can't connect to someone's library? I haven't been able to connect to anyones library in a couple of days, I just get the shared music thingy saying 'connecting to shared music' then it disappears. No message, nothing. Any ideas as to what the eff is going on?

In my case I've got some type of message each time I can't connect. Sometimes its instant, other times I see the 'connecting to shared music' dialogue before I get some other type of message.

I used to get those messages as well. I just tried to connect to you and the same thing happened. It said 'connecting to server...' then it disappeared.

Thanks for the feedback!

Everyone, my music is up again, for the time being I should be up almost daily from noon to at least midnight PST... Unless my ISP sends me a nasty note, which they've done before Anyone who decides to stay and listen awhile, please PM me, just so I know who's who...

Cheers!

Is it because my music is on an external hard drive? Hrmmm....

No.

lsof's job is:
OPTIONS
In the absence of any options, lsof lists all open files
belonging to all active processes.
(from "man lsof")

grep is searching the list of _all_ open files for "mp3". Maybe some of your music doesn't have filename extensions? Or it's some other format leading to a different name?

All my files have extensions, and it's working now so apparently I just presumed activity when it wasn't there... Thanks for chiming in, I'm Terminal-Stupid, so I appreciate any help I can get

No such luck. Anyone got a "how to" for port forwarding on an Airport Basestation. I want to share my music but I need to forward the port first, I think.

I might have found 'how to'. I truly hope so: 62.163.181.138

It's in another thread (Anyone want to share their iTunes Libraries?) and posted by torifile. I have done it, and sure hope it works. Again, confirmation would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, also to torifile!! _

I've got four people on my library right now... it was five earlier. Unless most of them are idling, they've all got to be getting lousy performance since even on broadband I can only upload a max of 256Kbits/sec.

Rebuffering... Rebuffering... Rebuffering...

It would be nice if I could set a limit lower than the built-in max of 5 people sharing my library. Like, oh, I dunno... 1? Of course, over a home network 5'll work just fine.

is there any way to find out if people are stealing your music rather then just listening to it?

Not telling anyone that I condone the actions of people or that I use these programs like iSuck. However, there is no way to fully protect your iTunes shares that are on the net unless you use www.shareitunes.com, because they hide your ip address (but it can still be found through sniffing traffic). Adding a password will do nothing but keep the newbies out that are using iSuck or iLeech. There are different programs that will allow you to enter a password and will do the same as iSuck, in fact you can even use the perl scripts if you really wanted to. If you are worried about people stealing your music without your knowledge it's very simple. Either don't share it on the internet period or just give a few friends the ip and not post it anywhere like serverstore.

The thing is, there's no difference from your perspective.

At the user end, the user is playing the MP3 from your computer while it is downloading. In one senario (what you call "listening") they are not saving the data to their HDD while it is downloading. In the other senario, they are saving it.

You can't tell what they're doing, because from your computer's perspective there's no difference.

There still isn't a difference Paul. This update probably does very little to prevent saving to disc music using iLeech, to do that the underlying technology would have to be changed.

All this download stops is people from sharing music outside their LAN. And sharing means both downloading and playing AND downloading and saving.
