Sharing iTunes Library files among computers
First of all, thanks for this wonderful application.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but TuneSpan doesn't have an option to share the iTunes Library files (itl, xml, itdb) with Span disk/folder.
The idea is to share the same library between multiple computers. I've tried this with some tutorials on the Internet based on moving iTunes Media folder via iTunes (mainly ArsTechnica's one) but it lead to some problems.
Would it be possible to add this feature in future releases?
If not, I was thinking of an script (via Automator + AppleScript) that copies these files to a Dropbox (or any other cloud service) folder if it detects changes.
Dropbox subfolder would look like this:
The script would take this actions, in this order:
Get the most recent library files from cloud
Check if any of the other machines subfolder in Dropbox folder contains files with more recent changes.If that's not true, do nothing.If that's true, copy the newer ones (per file) to the local iTunes Library.Update cloud library files
Check if there is a subfolder with the computer name.If there's no subfolder, create it and copy the local iTunes Library files to that subfolder.If that subfolder exists, missing files in that subfolder will be copied. Existing files will be replaced only if the local version has more recent changes.I'm not sure, though, about the risks of doing. I've done this manually and it works, but I'm not sure how it can affect to the iTunes Library files in long term.
Any help would be appreciated. Adding this feature to TuneSpan would be great, though! :)
