For the past several years I have had my parents accessing an iTunes library stored on an external drive through an old laptop they didnt use anymore. It connects to their sound system in the TV room and works really well for them. Unfortunately, they have some new furniture that makes the laptop quite impractical, and I'm trying to figure out a way to set the system up so that they can access itunes via an iPad. The problem is that their music library is massive, so putting all of the music on the iPad is completely out of the question. From what I've researched, my options are pretty limited. I cant connect an external drive to the iPad, and even if I managed to find a wireless drive that worked, the iPad wouldnt be able to access an itunes library that isnt on the iPad's storage. I'm trying to figure out what the other options might be. iCloud doesnt offer enough storage space, so that's a no go. I'm currently uploading their library to google play for free, but so far I havent found any promising leads on actually being able to access the music in iOS with a decent interface (search function, etc). Is there any way to allow the iPad access to a music library on another mac without having the iPad actually storing the music internally? Would apple TV help in any way? My mom just brought one to me and said my dad bought it 8 months ago and forgot about it I might just end up getting them any sort of android device that can access the google play music smoothly, but since they like apple devices, I thought I'd give this one last shot.
