Web access to iTunes libraries now available in latest update to iHomeServer for iTunes

MUMBAI: iHomeServer for iTunes is already well known for the additional features it adds to iTunes such as watch folders and automatic tagging of your movie and television collection. However, the latest update to iHomeServer adds web streaming to the product's ever growing feature list.

After iHomeServer for iTunes is installed on a Windows computer running iTunes, the existing iTunes library* is instantly available to any modern web browser on a user's home network. This makes it easy to play music, movies or television episodes on an Android or Blackberry phone/tablet or a Windows or Mac OS X laptop even if it's not running iTunes. Suddenly an iTunes library that was previously only accessible from iOS portable devices is now available to pretty much any device in the home.

Bizmodeller explains, "With iHomeServer for iTunes, you can enjoy your iTunes library at work, in your local coffee shop, on holiday or anywhere there is internet access. iHomeServer also lets you share your iTunes library across Apple and non-Apple devices in the home."

iHomeServer provides more than just streaming to web browsers. iHomeServer also sports a built-in DLNA server that will stream iTunes media to Smart TVs, PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360 games consoles providing a single solution for all iTunes streaming needs.

A spokesperson at Bizmodeller said, "iTunes has always been a closed eco-system. Apple's streaming technologies such as Home Sharing and AirPlay don't play well with non-Apple devices. iHomeServer for iTunes breaks these constraints allowing you to stream your iTunes library to most of your other home devices and lets you access your library securely from the internet."

You can download iHomeServer now and try it free for 30 days. iHomeServer is compatible with most versions of Windows including Windows 7, Windows 8/8,1, Windows Vista and Windows XP SP2. iHomeServer is also available as an add-in for Windows Home Server (v1 & 2012) and Windows Server 2012 Essentials.
