sharing iTunes library between Win/Mac (not streaming)

Posted:

Hello all. I listen to most of my music on my Windows machine because it is connected to the nice speakers. However, I occasionally listen to music on my PowerBook and I connect my iPod to my PowerBook to put songs on it.



I was wondering if there is a way to share the library between my Windows machine and my PB. I don't mean streaming; I want it to update the playcount on both machines wants a song has been played. Will this work if I move the iTunes library file onto a server and point both machines at it? Also, there are two files 'iTunes 4 Music Library.xml' and 'iTunes 4 Music Library.itl' on my windows machine. Which one stores the library data read by iTunes?



Thanks,

Andrew
