Rendezvous is a godsent for this setup - never again maintaining multiple libraries or see them crash when opened over the network...



    thegelding: I'm a neat-freak regarding the MP3 collection. ID3X is my closest friend - everything is checked before adding to the library. I'd hate to 'lose' songs because of bad categorization. Don't worry though - my desk is a mess most of the time...



    Your age theory, interesting as it is, is failing on me - I'm 'only' 33. I just like good music I guess - or am I giving away too many clues to deep dark secrets already... ;-)




    When I ripp CD (for long term storage meaning using my mom's iMac, due to my Beige G3 giving pop and hises) the problem for me is, I am legally blind, and need someone to double check the info.



    Now the fun part doing seperate Artist and Composer. also finding the year would be useful too.

    I'll add to the greatness of this with my collection. I challenge everyone not to find something they like!

    Here's mine. All over the board, but heavy on R&B, pre-1996 hip hop (I feel like it more or less died after that point), rare groove, originals to stuff sampled in R&B/hip hop songs, and the like. Some jazz, a little blues, and some token rock here and there.



    daap://www.BasementMusic.com



    I'll keep it up 24/7, since I keep my music on my Cube anyway, which runs OS X Server and does a variety of helpful household tasks for me.



    There's a little over 3,100 songs in there right now, and I'm still ripping more when I have the time. And the connection's a pretty fat upstream for a consumer broadband connection, thanks to the great (so far) Optimum Online.

    I wrote a detailed article on How to Share your iTunes Library over the Internet for anyone needing to know how to share your iTunes library.

    Thank you, sir. I knew most people on here wouldn't be that into it, but that those who were probably *really* would be into it.



    I know there's been some good hip hop after 1996, but that also was the year I graduated college and no longer had the time to really seek it out. I used to play the stuff on the radio (my show was also called "Basement Music," hence my registering the domain name years ago, just in case there was ever a resurrection), but now it's just . . . a pain in the ass to keep up, almost.



    I tried connecting to your share but couldn't. New IP address now? Or do you need to open port 3689?



    BTW, I'm on iChat/AIM as XomSense.

    Hmm...yea I guess it isnt working then....I had a few users connected on it so I thought maybe the IP worked fine but it might just be people on our network that accessed mine. Probably our school's (university) firewall that is preventing me from sharing my stuff. Anyone got ideas on how I can get through it to share my iTunes library? Would port 3689 work for me?

    Just before Apple pulled it from the discussions fora, there was a thread about a small application (iTunesdl) and with that application you can connect to a music library and download all the songs to your HD (I tested it, it works). info [perl.org], my upstream at this moment with 2 iTunes clients (without any other uploads) is +/- 400KB/s. I'm curious what Apple is going to do with this..

    iTunes library is now a field in your profile; for your pleasure.

    There will be a "security update". Some traffic will be encrypted (the session id or a newly added challenge string for client authentication, maybe some parts of the mp3 or just the whole traffic. it's not that nobody has ever done secure client/server apps before...) They should have done that right from the beginning.



    I could hardly believe my eyes when I first saw the http traffic last week... Took me about an hour to write an experimental perl script that lets you browse other people's database(s) and download selected item ids.



    I just hope they don't pull the feature, but then again, it's fun but for how long, a week?
