Rhythymbox- share music with iTunes?


Hello-

I have 4 PC's in my house, 3 running iTunes+Windows and 1 running Ubuntu+Rhythmbox.

All three Windows have shared iTunes libraries over my wireless network.

How can I create my own shared library(in ubuntu) that they can access in iTunes?

How can I access their shared libraries?
thanks,
LN75

Hi LN75,

I just stumbled across this thread when searching in the forum. What you should do is creating a Samba-share to share your files from the Linux machine. Then create a network drive on the windows machines that point to you new share. By doing so you can then set iTunes to scan the newly added network drive for music. This works for me.

Good luck,
Jens
