Launch the iPod App on your iPhone. At the bottom of the screen, you should see a More button with 3 blue dots. As you can see here, there is a Shared list item at the bottom of the page. Click that, which should bring you to a screen like: Click the name of the computer that you see in your list and then all of the videos, movies, tv shows, etc, will ...

You have two questions here. ( and ~ is short for the /Users/current_user folder) 1) For apps only to show up in your account - move them to ~/Applications 2) If a user is not part of the Administrators group then that user cannot install apps in /Applications which is the normal place for shared Applications. Non admin users can install apps in their ...

On the computer Open iTunes Turn on Home Sharing in the Advanced menu Keep iTunes running On the iDevice Open Preferences Open Music Preferences Enter same AppleID for Home Sharing as in iTunes (note, you may have to re-enter the account if it appears already to be there. This both verifies the stored password is correct and re-registers the iOS device ...

The primary obstacle to getting a full featured program like iTunes to work is running OS X on non Apple hardware and/or Windows on ARM. I do run ubuntu on a Beagle Black and it is suitable for music streaming and light video streaming using open source packages. Nothing I have found works as well as an AppleTV and iTunes Match for music streaming, though. ...

Firstly, in order for AppleTV to see the iTunes Library a user must be logged in and running iTunes. If both of these are not present then AppleTV won't work. Since they are on the same physical Mac might I recommend combining the iTunes Media folder and placing it in the /Users/Shared/ directory. As all users have access to the Shared directory the actual ...

I have a similar setup - 5 iPhones, a couple of computers, iPad, etc. I have the masters on my Pro - it's always on and powerful enough to keep iTunes and iPhoto running in the background. Each user has their own iCloud account for email, calendars, etc. We share a single family AppleID for purchases - this is setup on each device for Music, Videos, and ...

Have you considered iTunes Match for music & iCloud Photo Stream for the photos? There is a total of 4 people in our family and between us we have 5 iOS devices, an Apple TV, a few laptops and an iMac. The iMac is setup as our main digital hub. It contains our master iTunes and iPhoto libraries. Here is our setup: Music Setup: We have one Apple ID ...

Home Sharing is done under a different Apple ID than the one the computer is authorized for. I have my computer registered under my ID (with automatic downloads on!), and Home Sharing set up under a family ID. To do this correctly: Make sure you are signed in to your ID under the Store menu. Log in to the shared ID with the appropriate command under the ...

Two software options (for both Mac and Windows). Both turn your work computer into an Airplay destination, so you can stream audio directly from your iPhone to your computer. This lets you play music from your iPhone without worrying about syncing, copying songs, etc. On the Mac, there's the open source app called Airmac. And on Windows, you can try the ...

It should be in Music under More -> Shared Selecting your iTunes library then puts it in a home sharing mode and to return to the iPhone's music go to More -> Shared again How to use Home Sharing on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad

Mathias is correct about the proper way to sync photos to your iPad. Sharing photos from iTunes approves them for Home Sharing, a system designed to share iTunes Store purchases and media amongst family members. Apple Knowledgebase: iTunes: Setting up Home Sharing on your computer Home Sharing can also be used to allow access to photos from an AppleTV. ...

You don't copy Photos to an iPad using the Advanced menu… Here’s how I do it: go to iTunes → Devices → Your iOS Device → Photos → enable “Sync Photos from…” and choose either iPhoto album(s) or a folder on your hard drive. Then press the Sync button in the bottom right corner. See Apple Knowledgebase: iOS and iPod: Syncing photos using iTunes for more ...

I would highly recommend looking into iTunes Match. It allows you to sync all your music across multiple computers, iPads, iPhones, and iPods. Not only that, but it will let you stream music that is in the cloud that you have synced and not on your computer. This may be a good solution for you when you want to listen to songs but don't have them on your ...

While both options offer the possibility of streaming the content of up to five iTunes libraries through a home network, it's only through Home Sharing when you are able to actually import the content into your own iTunes Library. Even more, when you use a computer on your Home Sharing network to download an item from the iTunes Store, you can have the ...

One possibility: An additional Mac. Pros: Could do everything asked for. Cons: Expensive. Power consuming. To save some power, one would let it sleep. So everytime one wants to connect to the library, the Mac has to be waked up. Setup not as easy as NAS.

The iTunes Store Term and Conditions are available in almost any country and can be found here. The Terms and Conditions, as outlined by Apple, should address your broad question. As Daniel has raised the issue of "sharing in the workplace", it is a point of contention that one can argue what "sharing for personal, noncommercial use" entails. Does that ...

At least in the US agreement, Apple only authorizes people to use iTunes content for "personal, noncommercial use." Nothing I find in the agreement licenses the user to share their content with others at the workplace. So yes, there are potential legal issues.

Create a new playlist on your local machine with the same name as the one you would like to import. Click on the library that you wish to import a playlist from over Home Sharing. Expand the library by clicking on the arrow to the left of the name. Expand the folder called Playlists from within the library. Drag the playlist from the home sharing library ...

This is only a pointer to a possible clue. I read in this discussion in Apple Support Communities that there may be a problem with iTunes Home Sharing not recognizing certain files because of particular extended meta tags attached to them. Editing and changing the meta tags enables iTunes Home Sharing to work with them.

iTunes Home Sharing works for me to send playable Apple Lossless songs to iPhone / iPad and another Mac streaming songs. There may be a problem with your setup since it is supposed to work and does for me. Perhaps someone else will chime in with their experience - but I have seen it work recently at several friend's houses as well as in my setup. I'm ...

Check out this link from apple: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4527 I think the section on transferring your music library via an external drive is what you're looking for, with appropriate substitutions given that you're looking to transfer over a network.

I've got this same situation going at home; two computers with separate iTunes Store accounts, an AppleTV that pulls content from both of them, and iTunes Home Sharing turned on. The automatic syncing behavior is optional and, I believe, opt-in. When you turn on Home Sharing and select it in iTunes, you'll see this down in the bottom right corner: When ...

Firstly, you must bear in mind that each In-App Purchase is uniquely associated with an Apple ID and that there are different In-App Purchase types: Consumable - You need to purchase these items every time you want them, and you can't download them again for free. Non-Consumable - You purchase these items one time, and you can transfer them to multiple ...

It's all about the metadata ‚ the track information stored in each media file. A while back I had this problem with TV Shows ripped from DVD not displaying correctly, or not in the proper sort order, on my iPad. When I compared the metadata for my home-brewed files with those from files of episodes purchased from the the iTunes store, I discovered some ...

It seems that Advanced > Choose Photos to Share uses iTunes' Home Sharing feature to share photos with Apple TV devices. If you want to sync photos from your computer to the iPad, you can either use PhotoStream or enable photo syncing when you connect the iPad.

To solve this problem & set the artist of all shows to the name of the TV show & set all episode IDs in the form of S#E# (season number & episode number) PS. when setting the episode ID of the first 9 episode write the as "05" not just "5" else they will not be sorted correctly.

You have to make sure that your computer with iTunes and the iPad/iPod/iPhone device are connected to the same router. I have an Easybox router from Vodafone and my iPad was connected to that router. But this router has an Airport Extreme in bridged mode connected to it and that is where my iTunes was connected to. As soon as my iOS devices logged into the ...

I'm having the same issue, only my desktop machine is an iMac. What worked for me was: Under the "Advanced" menu in iTunes, there's a little item labelled "Turn On Home Sharing." Even though I had my Apple ID entered in Preferences, and the Sharing preference pane showed "Status: On," it didn't work until I found the item in the Advanced menu.

It can be done, using the following steps: In iTunes, go to Preferences > Sharing Preferences. There is an option there called 'Home sharing computers and devices update play counts'. Turn that on. After you've listened to some music, open the last.fm Scrobbler application on your computer, and it should prompt you to scrobble what you've just listened to. ...
