From the new version, on my MacPro Octo, my CPU use less than 0.1% (after load library), and no problems with library, it is all loaded. Great update for the moment to me, and I thanks some works on :) …To come back on your problem, try to reset all logs (and prefs if still blocked) ;)

Have been giving Simplify Media a try pretty much since it first came out. It's no wonder I hardly ever launch it anymore. Nice concept, clunky execution; The latest version (2.5.0.1519) Introduces a new bug on top of the continuation of the old CPU Hog bug that it has had since day 1; Now when I launch, it pretty much recognizes most of my itunes library (well, it recognized 5800 of 8000 songs), BUT now the new bug is that it continuously cycles with a "Reading library file" message and progress bar 99% of the time it is on, and uses 67% of the CPU on a QUAD Intel iMac; WOW, what a resource hog. I will give this product One last chance (next update after this one" before I abandon it; At this time I cannot recommend this application to any of my friends, and I am on the verge of advocating against this app. C'Mon guys, after approx 2 years of development, it still acts this way? Good Luck, and try again. I am going to try to find previous version to downgrade, as this version is a step backwards for me, and wait 1 more time for the 'next' new version.

Simplify Media invariably crashes when trying to initialize my library of around 25.000 titles. So far, it is a fruitless exercise for me ...

Beware. The latest version (2.5.0.159) is no longer usable with OS X 10.4 (Tiger). This should be changed in the info on MacUpdate.

This is not a review or comment just a question. How much bandwidth those this take? Normal I don't care since I don't have any restrictions on bandwidth limit but I do have voip. I'm afraid if I use this it will completely destroy any phone calls getting out or in. Does any one have any user experience with this? My connection is 5mgs down. Thanks

I have a massive iTunes Library (2000 full length CD's, @ Apple Lossless)... I have been dragging my external around with me to play music at events... wow, this should makes things more convenient! However, it does raise the question of whether I must set my Mac to "never sleep" in order to access my music? (I think yes). Plus, will my monthly internet upload/download be exceeded? (I think yes) Hmmm, perhaps I'll look into this more!

Not sure if this is related or not, but ever since I upgraded to the latest version of iTunes (8.0) simplify media (when running all the time) has caused my Mac to freeze up. I leave my computer on all the time, and it serves an apple tv. My iMac (intel 3.06ghz) does not freeze up when simplify is closed nor did it have any problems prior to the 8.0 release. It seems when both programs are running at the same time, I have issues on my computer. Just wondering if anyone else had similar issues.

Brilliant! So easy to use. Looking forward to a version that goes through a proxy server, so I can use it at work. What I don't understand is what the guys creating this gets out of it???

Simplify Media works great for me. The interface is invisible once you set it up (you just use iTunes!). I was able to hear my music at my family's house during the holidays. I can share my music with my friends and family, and I can hear my home music collection while I'm at work. And it's free! Thanks!
