    I have a mac pro that houses all of my itunes. I am thinking about buying a mac mini to hook up to my new plasma. Can I install plex on the mini and share the itunes library on my mac pro. If I can share the content, when I update my library on the Mac Pro, will it auto update on the mini with plex? Thanks

    Sadly not. This has been a largely requested feature from Plex though.
    You can set up symbolic links from one library to the other, but this is difficult for beginners and slows Plex down to a crawl on one machine.
