Bains Software on Thursday released accessTunes, billed as “always-on music sharing via iTunes and the Web.” The software enables you to start sharing your iTunes Music Library as soon as you turn on your computer, and makes the music available on the local network through iTunes, or from anywhere on the internet via a Web interface.
You can password-protect your library for both iTunes and Web access, and you can share selected playlists or the entire thing. AccessTunes will also tell you what songs are being streamed. The software requires Mac OS X v10.3 or later. A US$15 shareware fee is required to register the software after it has streamed 50 songs.
