Doesn't work with 10.4.7

At least not on my mac mini. Wish it did work.

Got it working sweet. However, would be better if it came up with the computer name...that should be possible considering it supplies oyu an IP address.

Ok, I've yet to have the song side die on me, but here's my fix for the front. Go into your Library -> Widgets directory and then CTRL click on the widget and select "Show Package Contents". Open itunes.js in a text editor and go to line 72 in the file. Remove the lines below that are preceded by a minus (-) and replace them with the lines preceded by a (+). So, just to be clear, the plus (+) indicates the line, it is not to be included in your replacement. If the author doesn't show himself in a week or so, I'll add my fix to the widget, increment the version and release it elsewhere until the author shows.

This is enormously helpful. Thank you *very* much!!

(One quick correction: you named "itunes.js" as the file to edit, but you must mean "itcm.js".)

Very strange. Until now, the widget at least could show me what track a connected user was playing, but suddenly I can't get the widget to show me the other side any more. And no I haven't updated my iTunes to v6 -- my system is the same as it was yesterday. If this thing would only work, it would be great!

Love this one. It used to work perfectly (a little slow, but I could live with that), but since dark gray iTunes (I think) it never reports any connected users. Itunes (in its pref's) says that there are, and I can hear there are, but the monitor doesn't get it. Differently from the ones below, I do get pass the search-phase.

The widget do look cute, so it stays on my dashboard. A fix would be appreciated though :)

I have experienced the same problem. When nobody is connected, it says so but when ppl are connected it just says searching...
I am using iTunes 5.0 on a G5 iMac

I like the idea of this widget; unfortunately it does not work on my dual G5 1.8 Ghz system. It simply reports the following but never lists any users. iTunes reports that people are connected when I attempt to close iTunes. When I check the widget for the users I receive:

Connected Users:
Searching...


There is never any listing of the users connected.

I'd love a _history_ of songs listened to. A pop-out list with one column for song name/artist, a second column for listenter address, and a third column for time/date, would be great.

I guess you'd have to specify this mode optionally (or poll rarely, like every 2 minutes or so) or you'd have a widget that really burned the CPU.

I've always wondered what is most listened to on my playlist. Works great. My only critique would be to limit the list on the back to bulletted song names instead of the complete meta-data (filename, album, etc.).

Sweet Program. Shows me who is connected. However, it does show up which song they are listening to.
