    so, my university is all wireless. when i open up itunes today, i noticed that i can see everyone's music collections. this is awesome, because some people have some great stuff

    a couple of them have come up with a warning that says that it will only take 5 connections per day
    a small amount of them are password protected

    i can listen to the songs no problem, can i copy the songs?

    it is a pretty awesome feature. as far as i have been able to find out, you can't copy these songs. it would be sweet if there was some program to get around this.

    yeah, "ourtunes" used to be able to do this, i'm not sure if it still works or not.

    i used to go to the library and get like 10 albums at a time.

    download speeds were fast as fuck too. like 2 seconds per song.

    this is true, itunes 7 changed a lot of stuff and you can no longer use any of the programs for mac or windows to get music from an itunes 7 shared library. still waiting for this to be fixed but not too optimistic

    the rumor i heard is that mytunes redux (win blows only) does the trick with v7. sadly no sound i've heard of a v7 shared ripper for OSX yet.

    thats when parallels really comes in handy, i'll give it a try

    edit: "The current version of myTunes Redux doesn't work anymore (thanks to updates by Apple), therefore Softpedia has temporarily removed its download links until a new, working version will be released."


    nevermind, i guess i could try it and see if anyone is still running an older version of itunes, there are about 30 people to choose from at any time in this one building. if i went to the student union, i can have my pick of hundreds (it's also fun to view peoples shared files and drop funny pictures into their folder)

    i used to be able to use mytunes redux and ourtunes until the upgrade to itunes 7.x. they were really awesome programs. i could download albums with in minutes. i'm still hoping for a work around too. :naughty:

    the only issue with that is that every one else on campus has 7.x so i doubt it would work

    i've tried this on my home network (2 macbooks), but nothing shows up. sharing has been turned on in sys prefs on both. not sure what i am missing.

    OK after reading... it will synch two different libraries as long as both are regitered with the program... so for home use this will work, but not over a network...

    tried ourtunes, but only one persons music was available right now

    the odds are sorta stacked against me. you have to have someone with an older version of itunes, with the program open and sharing on, near me
