No, MyTunesRSS is a server application which gives you web access to the iTunes library via a browser based interface.

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!

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.

Shock-J had trouble on 14 Oct 2011
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.

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.

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.

umijin had trouble on 08 May 2006
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.

Did you use the address displayed in the status bar of MyTunesRSS after starting the server, e.g. "server running [http://192.168.0.2:8080]" or (if you have multiple network interfaces) one of the addresses displayed in the status bar's tooltip? If you need more assistance, please consider using the support form at the Codewave website or the official Codewave forum located at http://board.codewave.de (and linked on the Codewave website).

No - I didn't use that. I used what your html manual says to use: "http://127.0.0.1:8080". It says very clearly at the top of the page "The web application" to enter this address into your browser's address field. It doesn't say anything about using the address from the status bar.

However, using the address in the status bar in a web browser DOES work. Thank you.

I hope you will update or revise your manual to clarify this.

The documentation says "please test the application first by using a browser on the same system you are running MyTunesRss. Enter "http://127.0.0.1:8080" in your browser's address field" and "after starting the server, the status bar displays the address your server can be reached on your local network. Usually you have a single local address (e.g. 192.168.0.2)."

But never mind, most important is that it now works for you. :-) And I will try to make it clearer in the next release as well.

Best regards

MyTunesRSS allows you to access the music and videos from your iTunes library or any simple watch folder over a local network or even the internet. You can access your music from all over the world using a simple Web browser. The user interface lets you search for titles or browse your whole library by album, artist or genre. You can access your iTunes playlists or create new ones directly in MyTunesRSS.

Download single tracks or play them right inside your browser. Either using a browser plugin for the file type or directly in the Flash player. Or do you want to download a complete album, all tracks from one artist or the contents of a playlist to your local computer? No problem with MyTunesRSS. You can also download an M3U or XSPF playlist and play them in Windows Media Player, iTunes, VLC, WinAmp or any other player capable of playing such playlists. Get a playlist as an RSS feed on your computer and stay up-to-date to the contents all the time. Enjoy cover images from the tracks if available in the files and supported by the RSS reader. Listen to your music via RSS feeds on many devices like the Nintendo Wii or the Playstation Portable with the latest firmware version.

Either use the simple internal database or connect MyTunesRSS with a MySQL or Postgres database for better stability and performance, especially with large music collections.

Create themes and language packs for the Web interface. Just use your own style. Use transcoding to deliver your MP3 content in lower bitrates to save bandwidth or even transcode your AAC files to MP3 on-the-fly to play them in the Flash player or any other application only capable of playing MP3 files.

If theme creation is not enough or not flexible enough for you, just use the remote API - either XML-RPC or JSON-RPC - and create a whole new (web) interface backed by the MyTunesRSS server.

Enjoy integration into the Last.FM social music network. Just use any player that does not support this community - like the integrated Flash player for example - and let MyTunesRSS handle the scrobbling.

Configure MyTunesRSS to your preferences. Create user accounts to protect your music from unauthorized access. But do not worry, the default configuration is sufficient in most cases and all you need is a single click to start the MyTunesRSS server.

Since MyTunesRSS is pure Java, you can run it on any platform supporting Java 1.5.
