iTunes Monitor for Mac1.1

11 January 2004

Share iTunes 4.1 music between Macs.

What is iTunes Monitor for Mac

iTunes 4 introduced the ability to share music between computers. However, as of version 4.1, iTunes doesn't provide much information about who is connected or what is being shared. This utility monitors iTunes to provide a solution.

What's new in iTunes Monitor

Version 1.1 adds the following:
  • Added support for multiple music folders.
  • Bug fixes: fixed memory leaks, improved responsiveness, fix for Panther.

iTunes Monitor is a nifty idea, but it has problems, namely that on my MacBook 2.0ghz, it pins one CPU at 80%. I have the impression it's polling all the time, rather than at the rate you set in the Preferences. The other issue is that it doesn't quit on its own - I have to kill it from the commandline. FYI, if it listed the files opened by other users, that'd be cool. Fix the polling issue and I'll give it five stars.

I've double checked that my path preferences coincides with iTunes, yet iTunes says that I have, for example, 3 users connected, but iTunes Monitor says that I have 0 users connected. Occasionally I will get information about connected users, but it's pretty unreliable. I don't know which app I should be trusting, iTunes or iTunes Monitor. Any ideas?

Go open source!!! There are many amateur programmers out there that are willing to help, including myself. Thanks to the Dev for this cool little app. This program could use a lot of nifty features that would not be (too) hard to code up. I'm sure there are many like myself that would be willing to code a little and get this app to its full potential.

While this should really be a part of iTunes, I appreciate that this little app exists to find out such info. Previous posters are accurate in their comments - it could use a little polish, but it does the job. I'd like to echo the calls for a New Window option. The best feature for this would be a badge with the # of connected users on the dock icon, in the same way that Mail tells you how many messages you have. Then you wouldn't need a window for the app at all -- you could just right-click (sorry.. control-click) the icon and see extended info in a popup menu.

I agree with some of Mark's comments, especially regarding reporting of localhost activity (I already know that I'm running iTunes and what I'm listening to). I'd like to also note one real annoyance: if you accidentally zap the window, the only way to get it back is to quit and restart the app. How about adding a "new monitor" menu option? This app has a LOT of potential - I hope the author keeps adding features.

This app has potential, but it basically falls flat on its face. Here is why; though it does some of what you would expect, it does it intermittently and with little information about those who are connected. Sometimes it will show the correct number of users connected and others it will be plus or minus one or two off from the number of current users indicated in iTunes' preferences. Another problem is that it includes the local host (you) and local host activities (your status and what song you are playing) which, to me, should be a preference option at best because of its uselessness. Next, though the color bubbles that indicate the status of the connected user is useful, and cool, they are often incorrect (based on LAN testing with five shared libraries). For the next release I would like to see more information about the connected users (such as IP, name, computer name, domain name), more reliable monitoring overall (this review based on a preference setting of 1 sec. for iTunes Monitor/iTunes refresh rate!), some sort of ID3 shareplaycount tall and or play count per user via a log file, and more preference options for all aspects of the app. Overall a good effort, but needs alot of work!

Anonymous: make sure you have the correct path set in your preferences. Developer: would it be possible to get more information about the connected IP addresses, e.g. the share's name if the connected IP is also sharing, and/or the computer's name which is available via _workstation._tcp. in Rendezvous on macs, and/or the netbios name for windows machines? Would it be possible to keep a log of the connections and make the application scriptable, e.g. to build a smart playlist with the most requested network songs or block the IPs of the people who are listening to music but not sharing themselves?

Nice idea, shame it does'nt work. According to this app. I'm never sharing and nobody is ever connected - but according to iTunes I am. Waste of time!
