MyTunesRSS

6.8.2
13 July 2015

Access your media on any device with network access to your Mac.

Overview

MyTunesRSS is your personal media server. Do not pay for storing your music, movies, TV shows and photos in some cloud storage but simply keep it at home. Access your media from anywhere in the world with any internet PC or mobile device. All you need is a web browser. You can of course also simply use it at home in your own network without any internet access.

There is so much you can do with MyTunesRSS like downloading playlists and streaming the music to your favorite music player like VLC, WinAmp, Windows Media Player or iTunes. Download single tracks, movies, TV shows and photos or even complete albums or other collections. Or simply play your music right inside the browser. No need to download and permanently store all the media files on the client computer. Your 8 GB iPhone can now play all your dozen GB music library wherever you like and without wasting a single byte of memory on the phone. MyTunesRSS has built-in support for social networks. You can easily share your favorite music and videos on Twitter, Facebook and the Last.FM community. For your UPnP DLNA enabled TV or other device you can also use the built-in Media Server to browse and play your media.

You can use the server for yourself only or create multiple user accounts for example for your family members or friends. You can assign individual permissions to the accounts, restrict them to certain parts of your media library (e.g., restrict access to suitable movies for your children), enforce lower quality streams, limit the amount of data an account can download per day, week, month and much more.

Since all you need is a browser you can use a Mac/PC or any other device with a browser for browsing and playing your music. You just have to keep in mind that some devices like the Wii have rather old and outdated browsers and might not support all features of MyTunesRSS or might not work at all.

MyTunesRSS runs out of the box and does not need any additional software except for a Java runtime version 7 or better. The Mac OS X version comes with a bundled version of the correct JRE. Since the administration of the server is browser-based as well, you can run MyTunesRSS on servers without any display. Experienced users can replace the default database MyTunesRSS uses to store its data with a Postgres or MySQL database. If you are a programmer you can create your own client in any programming language and use the remote API to access your server.

I like it, but SimplifyMedia works better for me...plus, SimplifyMedia is free. MyTunes RSS was my tool of choice for accessing my own iTunes remotely, but then it stopped being free, and more recently SimplifyMedia came out, does the same thing, and with a more invisible interface: my iTunes libraries show up in the "shared" section of iTunes wherever I am!

Just tried the download link myself and it downloads as pkg file for me. Alternatively you can try downloading directly from http://www.codewave.de if you like.

Is this compatible with iTunes 10.5? I upgraded iTunes (10.5) and MyTunes RSS (4.1.4) and now everything is broken. When I try to go to the admin URL I get... "HTTP ERROR 500 Problem accessing /. Reason: Bad version number in .class file" It also tells me my license will expire in 30 days, like I've been reset back to demo mode.

Well, I think you cannot compare Simplify Media and MyTunesRSS. They might basically do the same but have quite different approaches and feature sets. Please visit http://www.codewave.de/products/mytunesrss and read about all the great features. Also have a look at http://board.codewave.de for latest development news (e.g. latest beta versions).

Great app, responsive developer. Developer has responded to my emails and even implemented my feature requests. This app is by far the best in its category--it allows everything -- playing in the browser via flash, m3u, xspf, and directly downloading files. User settings and individual user permissions are also supported.

I've tried all of the other programs that try to do the same thing as this program and I must say this one is by far the best. I run it on my mac at home and listen to my entire iTunes library at work on PC using (gasp) WMP! Anyone who can make anything run, let alone as smoothly as this does on WMP deserves some credit! Three cheers.

Would this work from a Mac, over the internet (not a local network), to a PC? I really want to use this to listen to my music at school while I work.

Maybe the school's Board of Education portal is blocking it... (although it did say it timed out, & wasn't blocked)

Of course MyTunesRSS works over the internet as well. Make sure you have your firewalls opened for incoming traffic on the port you are using and your router configured to forward traffic on that port to the computer running MyTunesRSS. Also make sure no firewall or proxy server at the client side prevents you from accessing your server. This is often the case for schools, etc. As a workaround just use port 80 for MyTunesRSS since this should be open at schools, company networks, etc. Michael

A timeout on the client side might as well mean something is blocking the traffic. Either on the client side or on the server side (i.e. your home network), so the server is not reachable. Michael
