ACCESSTUNES - TRUE REMOTE ITUNES SHARING FOR WHS RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have just spoken with the developers of Accesstunes. 

    The website is www.zeleksoftware.com.  This software, in its present state, runs on a computer and "serves" the entire itunes library over the internet (protected files, too, if the "client" computer is authorized - i.e., one of your 5 computers that can share the DRM tracks from itunes).  You can log in via a website (with user name and password) and it runs in your web browser, and, even better, you can actually run itunes on the remote machine and (with an add-in on that machine) you can have your media streamed from the "serving" computer to the "client computer" with full itunes interface.

    I had a long discussion with them and they said that my request for an accesstunes WHS add-in was the first they had received.  However, as we spoke, they indicated that if there was enough support from the community that they would be interested in developing an accesstunes add-in for WHS.  I asked them if I could post this to the community and they agreed.

    This would be unlike any other add-in presently out there.  To my knowledge, there is no solution for streaming itunes music files (mp3s, yes, but not itunes, and certainly not using the itunes program to interface on the client computer). You could stream your own music to an itunes program running on a remote computer or you could log in via the internet on your browser and listen.  It will play EVERY unprotected file and it will play PROTECTED files if your computer is authorized.  I even suggested that the add-in would list Accesstunes in your list of websites on your Server homepage so that you could go to that, click, log in and listen.

    IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SEEING THIS ADD-IN DEVELOPED, PLEASE EMAIL support@zeleksoftware.com AND LET THEM KNOW YOU WANT AN ACCESSTUNES WHS ADD-IN. 

    Please email them if you want this add-in.  Please tell your friends.
