iTunes Music Sharing

My wild guess is that these tunes are on my roommates computer… I’m not sure why or how this stuff shows up in iTunes every once in a while… I can listen to the stuff as if it was straight off my hard drive. No delay for the stream to start… Does iTunes automagically search LANs for sharable music? Or is this more of a Limewire/iTunes thing exclusively?


iTunes does it automatically, if the option is selected. Edit -> Preferences -> Sharing is where it’s controlled.

On the T1 line at UVic, all of the connected computers are one viturally one big LAN, so theres lots of shared iTunes music.
