Looking for shared libraries

If your computer is connected to other computers over a local network (wired or wireless), you can look for music being shared by others on your network (in the same subnet).

To look for shared music:

  1. Choose Edit > Preferences.

  2. Click Sharing and then select “Look for shared libraries.”

Shared libraries and playlists appear below Shared in the iTunes window.

You can see video, MP3, Apple Lossless, AIFF, WAV, and AAC files, and shared radio station links. You can’t share programs purchased from the Audible website or QuickTime sound files.
