    I'm curiuos how much bandwidth might be used with sharing your itunes library over the network uses. I have some workers here that haved asked for me to put up some music on one machine so that they can access the music from different machines. I do not want my network to be tied up that much so that it slows down normal network activties too much.

    thanks.

    The bandwidth is roughly the bitrate of the song being played (select the song and press COMMAND-I to find this out) which is nothing for most wired networks. There's a tiny bit more to it, but nothing noticeable. Of course, if two people are playing songs from your library then the bandwidth is roughly the combination of both song's bitrates. :)
