Make sure iTunes mounts a networked music library
Authored by: taxi on Apr 24, '07 06:50:42PM

I'd suggest you have an issue with either your SMB server or client setup. I do exactly the same thing, and it works great.

You may wish to consider turning off "Keep iTunes Music folder organised", as this for me caused some headaches - mainly because the library is shared, and one person modifying a song property broke the other people's ability to access the file. iTunes moves the file(s), and other users aren't automatically notified.

This type of setup allows for use with XBMC on my Xbox in the lounge, and using VLC on a laptop I borrow from work. I could possibly put iTunes on there, but importing an iTunes library doesn't work, and I don't want to import all of the files, that takes ages.
