iTunes help? Answered

Hey- random question out there but i have a quick question. Can i share my iTunes with more than 5 computers? I have read a few papers saying you can only authorize 5 computers to use itunes (for your account). We have 3 computers so far connected to iTunes, but i want to use a computer upstairs with it, and i also know we will be eventually expanding to more than 5 computers. I was thinking of using a hard drive transfer (as we have no internet jack close upstairs, and its not wireless so we cant use home sharing easily. i do have a 50 foot Ethernet cable that would work. hehe), and just copying the entire itunes library to a portable hard drive, copying it over to the computer, and selecting it from the library in itunes (would i have to authorize to use it?), and going from there. Its a mac-windows transfer, so not sure what would happen there.  I was thinking after transfer (and possible authorization), could i just de-authorize the computer, and still play the music?? Is it legal?

iTunes to Arduino

I was wondering if someone could help me find a way to display the name of a song currently playing on itunes with a scrolling 24x6 led display. im thinking of using the display from this instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-24X6-LED-matrix/ it is coded to accept serial text input and display it on the matrix. my question is: how can i retrieve currently playing song's name and output it via serial to the arduino. btw, i know oe or two people have asked this before, but they were on macs and used AppleScript, which i cannot use because im on a windows pc

Itunes Music Gone?

I got onto Itunes yesterday, and I noticed that a lot of my songs were missing. They were just completely gone. Should i sync my ipod, and put the songs back on, or try to do something else? Help? The same thing happened to my father, who I share the account with. We have not updated/downloadedany new versions of anything on Itunes recently. Help?

What is the "other" bar in itunes?

 I recently got a new iPod touch 3g 8gb and I u[loaded 30 games and 40 songs because most of my songs are still pending. I noticed when I uploaded a video, updated apps and songs that there was this huge chunk of "other" in the itunes page. There is a photo down there. I have also read about it that I should get rid of contacts (which I have), notes ( which I have) Calender notes ( which I have) and album art ( which I also have). Recently when I synced it the songs were copying form my music into the Ipod for no reason. I have also read about "ghost data" which comprises of songs which do not show but are there... Help me please

iTunes keeps "Re-buffering stream"?

Hello! lately i have had a lot of troubles with iTunes, mostly it doesn't want to load or won't allow me to purchase things. i've tried reloading Itunes twice and that works for a day or two then its back to not working. i have got the latest version and a good internet connection. the most common problem lately is when i try to listen to a preview of a song it will play it for a few seconds then stop and say "opening URL Re-Buffering Stream" and that happens on every preview I've tried? it continually does it, saying that every few seconds... it worked fine yesterday and i was able to listen to previews without any trouble but this morning its back to the Re-buffering thing? i don't really want to call Apple help as there doesn't appear to be a section for this kind of thing and they ask for personal information... has anyone else had this problem and know how i can fix it? thank you! from AAG

I need an iTunes-style database solution for all my videos...

Hello, Newby to Instructables, read about it in the newspaper today.  Looking forward to some help/input on this project of mine... I have a huge (and growing) volume of video media. pushing 5 TB, and I'll be buying another 2 TB drive before autumn.  Now, having all this media at my fingertips on my PC without having to rifle through my DVD library is great, but it's only half the battle.  What I really want to be able to do is search through all my videos and TV episodes with the same ease that I go through my music library in iTunes. So, what I need is some way to list each video, and list each "tag" that applies to that video (SciFi, TV, comedy, romance, etc., you get the picture).  So, Excel serves well enough for that part, though I'm not married to it as a long-term solution. And, Excel fails completely as a searchable database, where I can just type in, say, "SciFi" and get the database to present me with every single Start Trek, Stargate, B5, etc. TV episode and movie that I own. So, can anyone suggest a program that would already be able to do this for me? iTunes itself isn't a solution, because although I could  make a plethora of empty MP3 files, import them into iTunes, and assign all the metadata I want to them, there wouldn't be anyway to click on the empty MP3 entry and have the movie/video pop up and play. Also, my videos are either direct DVD rips or mkv files, so I can't import either of those into iTunes either. Thanks in advance!

Delete those unwanted iTunes songs from your computer

Please keep ion mind I am a complete newbe with Perl. I keyed in the Perl script(?) to do exactly what the title says. I down loaded and installed ActivePerl, Then downloaded EnginSite Lite Perl editor. When I click on the "Run" and "Out Put Warning" I am getting errors on the print statements: example - print("-I-: XML file: $xml_file\n"; -. I believe I have done a careful character by character comparison and found my typing bugs. Could someone point out what I might be doing wrong. I am running this on a PC not a MAC, but I don't think that is an issue at this point. I have not tried compling yet.Many many thanks in advance.

Free Music or a Way to Get iTunes into Final Cut Express? Answered

This is one of my major pet peeves. I'm growing tired of searching for back ally sites to convert music from one source (ie YouTube) to MP3 files, then download it (with a free virus as a bonus), all to get a song I already bought on iTunes into my videos! iTunes makes it impossible for anyone to do anything with their songs other then listen to them on ipods, which I don't even do. Personally, I think it's silly that I can't do anything with the songs I bought, it's a terrible waste of money.So, does anyone know how to bypass this, or know of another converter site. The one I used is no longer working. I'm making a video for AV class, but it won't be very effective without the music. Don't reduce me to recording the music off of my laptop speakers with a camcorder!

I could use a hand moving iTunes files around on my PC, without messing anything important up.

Recently I installed a second hard drive into my PC and I wanted to move all my iTunes files from the original (smaller) hard drive to the new (bigger) hard drive. After I move them, I want to delete the old files, so I can have more room on the smaller hard drive. I know how to move the music files, but the program files for iTunes are giving me trouble. I really do not want to mess this up either, as I have put a considerable amount of money into my music. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
