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