Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharing over a network, part of Learning iTunes 12.
- If the Mac or PC on which you're running iTunes…is connected to a network, whether you're at home…or at the office, by turning on certain preferences,…you can let other iTunes users on your network…play music and videos from your library on their computers.…Naturally, you can also play their music and videos…on your computer, if they've also set…the same preferences to allow network sharing.…This ability to share iTunes over your network…opens up all sorts of possiblities.…Basically, everyone on your network can have…his or her collection of music on his or her computer,…but still have the ability…to listen to everyone else's stuff.…
Or, if you have an old Mac or Windows machine…sitting around, you can install a copy of iTunes on it,…import all your music, and use it to serve music or videos…to the rest of your computers,…without taking up any hard drive space on them.…When you're listening to or watching shared content,…you're actually streaming the content…from one computer to another.…Nothing gets copied over in the process.…
