    OK, this is probably a really stupid question, but how do i find the streaming adress of my iTunes music library, so i can give it to my friends?

    Thanx

    The address is in this format:

    daap://YourWANIPAddress:3689

    e.g.

    daap://138.20.13.126:3689

    :)

    Ctrl-click on your "iTunes Library" and then select "copy URL to clipboard," and then your "daap" address is on the clipboard.

    When you do that it copies using your local hostname, so it won't work when someone external try's connect, you have too use the method I posted above for it to work.

    Example, this is what I get when I copy URL from library:
    daap://quicksilver.local./resolve?database-spec='dmap.persistentid:0x514b7d64d50e732'&playlist-spec='dmap.persistentid:0x212a1ea455e8ecd0'
    I challenge anyone to connect to me using that! :p

    Any idea how to do this is I'm behind a hub and thus my mac is on a local IP?
