pulpTunes - The Web Server for iTunes


  • Take your iTunes with you

    You've got a huge music collection in your iTunes at home.

    You want to access that music from the office, at a friend's party, or let other people hear it from anywhere in the world.

    Install pulpTunes and access your music from anywhere, through a web browser.
  • Works on Mac, Windows and even Linux!

    After started, a little orange will appear in your tray (as shown to the left), and you'll be given your machine's IP address.

    To access your music from outside your home network, just point any browser to that address.

    For Linux environments (where iTunes is not available) you just need an iTunes XML file which points to the music files.

pulpTunes Reloaded Alpha1 ready for testing

August 9th, 2012 · 10 Comments · Uncategorized

pulpTunes Reloaded is simply a web page that allows you to stream your music just by drag and dropping your music folder into your browser. Currently you’ll be able to serve the music only through Chrome, but the client side should be able to use any modern browser.
This is an early alpha release, which means it still is a little rough and misses some functionality, particularly playlist support.
Besides playlists, during the following weeks  I’m planning on implementing:
  • Background serving: ability to close the browser and still continue serving the music
  • Mobile interface
  • Improved performance when processing large number of files.  Metadata will be cached locally, which will vastly improve performance when serving a file you’ve served in a previous session.
  • Ability to skin the client-side
This alpha version has no usage limitations, but the final version will be supplied as a free limited version and a paid unlimited version. Testers will receive the paid version for free however, as a token of appreciation.
