MyTunesRSS6.8.2

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.

What's new in MyTunesRSS

Version 6.8.2:
  • Fixed SQL exception when using certain user setting with a postgres database

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!

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.

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.

I couldn't get this app to work properly after starting the server on my 20" iMac over my wireless LAN at home. I was unable to make a connection to the server with my laptop using the default settings (server doesn't exist) and even after switching to a different port. I don't have a firewall, as far as I know other than the standard settings on OSX. Perhaps the settings aren't as self explanatory as they should be.

Works pretty well ! i just installed iton my mini and i'm currently playing my tunes on my psp. I've been looking for somtihng like that and all i could find was dottunes which was $20 and this is free and works just as welll. The only problem i found with it is that it gives me an error when i try to stream a 1:20 hour song.but it plays regular songs fine.

Excelent program :D It is Universal Binary, by the way. Activity Monitor reports it as "Intel" under "Kind", despite MacUpdate.com claiming MyTunesRSS to be PPC. I haven't tested the address in Explorer or Firefox, but if it works, that means I can share my music to people in the houe who doesn't have iTunes, or can't get it to work (running Windows).
