Browser remote control for iTunes.   Free

browserTunes allows you to remotely control iTunes from any Web browser. Just point the browser to http://yourmac:8080 (where "yourmac" is the name or IP address of your Mac) and you can play songs, pause, get information about the song playing, view and play playlists.

browserTunes works fine for PDA browsers and perhaps also with phone-based browsers. So if you have an Airport Express in your living room and your computer with iTunes in the basement, you can control the music from a handheld browser. Or, if you just have two computers and only one has your iTunes music

Is it in any way possible to set up a password for this program? I'd like to run it but if people know my IP-Adress they can change my iTunes and I don't like this. And: Yes there are people who do stuff like that.

I really like this. Itll be great for our headless jukebox. Some sort of way of uploading songs to itunes would be a bonus.

might be a cool ap if the stability issues get worked out. I would like to have the ability to add a song to the play list without it playing that song immediately. Ideally it would have the ability to do the following:
1) insert song to play next
2) play song immediately
3) put song at end of playlist
4) view and delete songs from the playlist

Very cool software! I use it to stream music from my aluminum PB to my Lombard so I can keep the Lombard connected to my good speakers and use the Aluminum PB anywhere in the house. My biggest request- support for shared music playlists. I can play the music that is streamed off of my powerbook and see the song info about the currently playing song, but I cannot view the playlist itself. This would be an awesome feature if it could be added.

If they can work out the kinks, this will be a VERY cool toy. As it stands now, though, I seem to have to restart the thing every 5 minutes.

Suffers from instability and a few interface bugs at the moment, but overall a promising app that already works well for basic stop/start/next functionality. To the dev - I had trouble viewing any playlists, but this is on a mac that doesn't have any local music, and is only used to access itunes shares. Periodically I had to restart the deamon, and the central image map of the fancier web interface never loaded. Nice work, though, and useful, so keep refining!
