As I mentioned before, I am looking for a solution to store my music in a common location where it can be accessible all of my computers, where I can play it back on the Mac mini with in a TV interface, and where I can add music just by dropping the files to a folder, and they will automatically appear on all computers.

Then I got an email from MP3tunes mentioning that if you buy the Logitech Squeezebox you can get a one year subscription to the MP3tines Premium Locker for free.  I mentioned before that I thought a Squeezebox would be a good solution, as I know that the SlimServer software will read music files from a shared network mount point.  It looks like the SqueezeBox will play content directly from MP3tunes, so you don't need to leave a computer up.

One other cool thing about MP3tunes is that there is iTunes integration. With this, the tracks in your MP3tunes locker will appear in your iTunes as a shared iTunes Library.

So I decide to test how well this works.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to sync any content to the MP3 locker.  Both OboeSync2 and Oboe return sync errors when I try and upload content.  I will try a little bit longer to get this to work

  1. Hey Paul,
    MP3tunes here. We'd be glad to help you out. The most common reason you would get an error when starting the program up would be a firewall or anti virus program blocking us. Make sure that we are on safe lists. If you continue to have a problem starting up you can submit a ticket at We're glad to help!
