somehow it did work for a moment on snowleopard, at least the small play/pause button.
but after trying to open the nettunes window, hangs.. and no succes ever again.. not even after trashing all prefs and reinstalling.
i will not complain.. it's an ancient application for ancient macs; it seems to work om my iMacG3 as a server. too bad i cant control it from other macs, could have been a perfect solution..
back to Remote.app on the iphone
This software gets the job done using an attractive intuitive interface. It is similar to using Apple Remote Desktop except you only see the iTunes interface and not the entire remote computer. I previously used iHam on iRye. iHam could not handle my large music collection (over 5000 songs) but Nettunes handles it flawlessly. For the cost of a clock radio, you get a peice of software that will let you control iTunes on any remote Mac. Hook up an old iMac to your stereo and use you WiFi equipped laptop and you've got quite a solution. Unlike much of my other software, this application has worked flawlessly since the moment I installed it.
I have used NetTunes from OSX10.2 thru OSX10.3.2. The author has updated it regularly and was helpful the one time I had a problem.
It has always worked fine and has the best interface for controlling Itunes over a network. What can be better than Itunes for controlling Itunes. My setup is a music server controlled by another Mac over the network as well as i wireless link to my portable.
I like the fact that I can edit the info remotely (such as artist and album) as well as control the music.
netTunes Users: if you're having trouble with netTunes, please *contact me* before slamming netTunes here on MacUpdate.
I have no problem with bad reviews "on netTunes' merits", so to speak -- that's fine. But give me a chance to get you working before saying "it doesn't work". That's why we're here -- to help users!
Seems like a great idea, but I can't get it to work, except to serve itunes from a computer to itself. Client sees the server after about a minute of spinning, then spins again when you try to launch itunes.
