    Hi. I'm looking for a program that can be used as an iTunes remote over Rendevouz / Network / Internet. But it has to support Shared libraries!
    Every iTunes server I've tried does not support shared libraries.

    You see; I have all my music on my iMac, but since my iMac isn't connected to any Hi-Fi system, I'm streaming the libraries (my iMac's and my brother's) on my Powerbook which is connected to a Hi-Fi system.

    So. What I need is a remote control program so that I can control iTunes on my PowerBook. It has to support shared libraries, because my powerbook doesn't hold any music. The client interface isn't very important, but I would appriciate some kind of search and category view.

    Hope this wasn't too hard to understand.

    If it neednt be a program, but can be a mobile phone, you could use e.g. salling clicker and use your bluetooth handset as RC. Works well though thin walls over short distances.
    You could also use applescript remote access if you dont fear security issues from the outside world.

    I've tried that program, didn't work how I wanted it to work. I need a program that supports shared libraries. But thanks anyway!

    I need some kind of VNC which only displays iTunes :p
