There is no solution out there like OurTunes. It simply works. Down with DRM! We're all waiting anxiously.

I have started a project to revive OurTunes. In fact David Hammerton (one of the original people to crack the iTunes share authentication) is working to help the next generation of OurTunes be reborn http://SaveOurTunes.com for more info

I just emailed the developer and got a response from Yahoo saying the account has been disabled or closed. I guess this project is dead unless the developer responds or updates it.

Hey Everyone, Version 1.3.3 does not seem to work with the new iTunes 7. Hopefully there will be an update soon. If anyone has been able to use 1.3.3 successfully with iTunes 7, please post here. Thanks!

For some reason OurTunes doesn't like my server. I can't connect to anyone else's iTunes with it. I had read something about the fact that a wireless network creates problems. Any clue how to fix this?

So, everything with OurTunes is working fine, everything is downloading, but I can't get the files I download to show up in iTunes. Perhaps I'm not setting the download directory right? P.S. This is for mac.

I'm so sad because ourtunes worked all last year at my college and now i've downloaded a bunch of versions of it so many times and it doesn't work. I have OS X version 10.3.9 and it downloads completely and then does nothing when I click on it. What should I do? I need my ourtunes!

i don't think ourtunes works with the new version of itunes. it shuts down your shared music so that you can't download anything.

Excellent little application, great for being a sneak at the cafe, and joking about what types of people are at the coffee shop based on their taste in music. Sometimes downloads will stop at 99% for me and then itll go to the next song in the queue. The songs will get put into a "Corrupt" folder, but when brought into iTunes they all seem to be fine. Weird! Anyways, great work guys!!!

A fine piece of Software. Although the developer's site makes comments about sharing over wireless networks not working properly, I found that with itunes v4.71 that downloads were fast and reliable. Much credit due to all involved. Lets hope they don't get sued out of the water.

I can load ourTunes but when I select a song for downloading, the queue has its downloading status frozen at "downloading 0%". I can only download windows executable version to get the desktop icon, when I do the regular version, I only get zipped files that can't be opened. I have the JAVA Runtimes, but they don't seem to make a difference. Any suggestions?

I LOVE IT! My only criticism is that I do not like the "show filters" checkbox that you added in version 1.3.2 Just show the filters beside the "Clear Search" button like you did in version 1.3.1 You could make the search box narrower and/or change "Include AAC files" to "Show AAC" if you are concerned about the width. Other than that you have a beautiful, clean interface. Keep up the good work.

Perfect! GetTunes was pretty good for one track that I was listening to - but trying to grab a massive bunch of tracks from one host or (worse yet) multiple hosts... forget about it. OurTunes is exceptional. I won't complain about the interface, because I could really give a _____

mytunes is back! only, since we mac users have had gettunes... What I'd like to see, since this allows you to look not by users through itunes but to just search all the music files on your LAN, is a small sound quality evaluation column, which would basically be bitrate, and, if it could be done, evaluate the song for skips or being cut off early. So then, you could take the best version of a song on your network, or go, ung, my copy of x is damaged/sounds awful. I wonder if there's a better one out there?
