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 is not free. "Unlicensed copy, iTunes will stop every 30 minutes" and registration. The "similar software" link at the top of the page says it's free. Please update this listing.

I don't understand what this does that isn't accomplished simply by turning on "Share my music" in iTunes. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

My big computer with the big hard drive and all my media is piping music upstairs to my stereo with the good speakers.

I'm upstairs sitting on my couch, working on my laptop and listening to music.

With iTunes sharing, I could get the music playing on my wimpy laptop speakers. With this app, I can control what the _other_ Mac is playing, meaning I can control what's playing through the good speakers.

Heh. Think of it as the poor man's Apple TV. (Actually, this is more portable, so even that's not quite true.)

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!

Thanks.

As a new mac convert, my server is still windoze that houses thousands of songs. However, I want the flexibility of updating star ratings remotely from my iBook (as I listen over airtunes :) ). Is anyone aware of a solution to help me do this?

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.

Matt -- sounds like you've got your firewall turned on, and haven't locked down the netTunes port, or punched a hole in the Firewall for it. This is in the FAQ in the help file, if you want to take a look.

Why not drop me a note at support-at-shirt-pocket.com?I'll be happy to help you get netTunes running.

Thanks.
