How to Share music & video in iTunes 9 with Home Sharing
Brad Garland guides us through the process of sharing our media files so that they can be stored on a single computer in our home, and played on any computer that is connected to this computer with iTunes 9. Using this technique, he and his wife can not only play the music that's stored on the central computer via their laptops, but also copy the desired music and videos over to their laptops much like they would for an iPod. Brad explains that he does not include Podcasts in this process, because it causes too much confusion and traffic. Any time he downloads a song or movie to his laptop, he simply copies it over to the main server, and it is instantly available to either of their other computers.
