Ipod Touch Apple Remote program using WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I wondered if there was a way to have the iPhone and Ipod Touch program Remote obtain its songs from WHS.  I have tried doing this and tried using Firefly and I cannot get it working.

  • Firefly will only stream music. You need to use iTunes (or similar software) to load music onto your iPod. When using iTunes, you can only load music that's in your personal library. So to load music from your server you will have to find software that can load your iPod from an arbitrary location (such as your server) or you will have to set iTunes (only on one of your computers; iTunes isn't designed to share a network library with multiple instances of the software) to use the server as it's library location.

    I know that there are programs other than iTunes that can load music onto an iPod; I just don't know what they are, as iTunes is what i use. :)

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
