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 ...

Under Settings -> Messages, check "Receive At" - you are probably both using the same Apple ID for messages. One of you will need to setup a separate Apple ID to use for Messages. You should be able to do this while continuing to share the same iTunes account.

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 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. ...

Your Home-sharing password is your Apple ID password. It should exist in your keychain: Type Keychain Access in Spotlight. It should appear in the drop down menu. Open it. Select your Login Keychain Type in iTunes Store Password in the search bar of Keychain access. Double click it and tick "Show Password" If this appears: Type in your user ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

I could resolve the issue by removing the Podcasts and iTunes U apps from the iPad. Afterwards the shared items are visible in the Videos app.

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 ...

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.

It's not Home Sharing, but this allows you to share over Bonjour, and you can drag just the movies you want into their own playlist.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

I was having this same issue on my iphone. I just noticed that my phone was connected via my guest wifi network. Switched to my home network and the shared icon came back.

I've had this same situation happen to me. I killed the iTunes app on my iPhone's multitasker, I've restarted my PC, I've disabled and re-entered my credentials repeatedly on the iTunes-PC side as well as the phone side, all to no avail. Home Sharing was there on my phone once before and suddenly it vanished. After hours of turning off firewalls, double ...
