libopendaap is a library written in C which enables applications to discover, and connect to, iTunes music shares. Unlike all other daap implementations, this library is able to connect to recent iTunes shares which require a special authentication algorithm. Currently, the only application using this source library is tunesbrowser, by the same author.

What's New

Version 0.4:
  • Playlist support now exists, a new API has been introduced to access playlists
  • Use a free mdns library, instead of Apple's mDNS library. This means that libopendaap is entirely free now. libopendaap now uses a highly modified version of mdnsd.
  • You can now connect to servers with passwords.
  • Better debugging support.
  • Better platform support.
  • Several possible buffer overflows fixed.
  • Several bug fixes.


Mac OS X 10.2 or later, (iTunes 4.5 compatible).

i'm having some trouble compiling this on Mac OS X 10.3.8, here's what i get from GCC after doing:

http_client.c: In function `bind_socket':
http_client.c:87: error: storage size of `saddrBindingSocket' isn't known
http_client.c:93: error: `INADDR_ANY' undeclared (first use in this function)
http_client.c:93: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
http_client.c:93: error: for each function it appears in.)
http_client.c:87: warning: unused variable `saddrBindingSocket'
http_client.c: In function `httpwatch_callback':
http_client.c:816: warning: unused parameter `fd'
make[2]: *** [http_client.lo] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

Please explain further on your website (in laymen's terms) how this will help me share itunes in the new 4.5. I'm pretty pissed right now. I just got getTunes and was sharing mp3's in my dorm. Then I downloaded the new itunes and suddenly I can't do it anymore. Thanks.

I won't help you share iTunes music at all, unless you're a developer and can use the library to integrate into your own hack solution.
