pulpTunes Freeware – Access and Share Your Complete iTunes Library From Anywhere
I’ve just been prodded in the direction of pulpTunes – thanks Sean!
Having an iPod or iPhone is great but, if like me, you have over a years worth of constant music on your hard drive at home there’s no way you can have your iTunes collection with you everywhere – unless you have a potent laptop and/or portable HDD.
The easiest solution to accessing that music from your office, at a friend’s party, or just to share your tunes with anyone anywhere in the world seems to be installing pulpTunes.
pulpTunes is a free open source program which allows you to stream your iTunes library across the Internet from any browser.
You can either install it to a remote server or onto your own computer.
It plays nice with Macs and PC’s and has both Windows and Linux support.
- Supports MP3 and AAC (M4A) files
- Download songs with a right-click

- iTunes DJ integration (formerly called Party Shuffle)

I think this sounds a fabby idea and when I get home I’m gonna add that little orange icon to my puter
