Donations of any convenient size help pay the bills and defray my personal costs in keeping the site going. Handy for clearing batches of albums of their user-set album ratings, or re-rating batches of albums. Making a contribution via Pay Pal is easy, safe, and secure. This script will allow you to set the Album Rating and/or Album Love/Dislike for the albums of the selected tracks or the albums associated with the tracks in a selected playlist (note that only a single track from any album need be selected in order to change the album rating or loved of the entire album).
Home Sharing, available in i Tunes 9 and higher, allows i Tunes libraries on the same network to copy items back and forth.
This works on up to 5 computers and requires that they sign into i Tunes using the same i Tunes account.
To consolidate libraries, turn on Home Sharing on all the computers you want to merge and then drag and drop the files to the computer that will store the merged library.
You'll find the shared computers in the left-hand column of i Tunes.
Home Sharing does not transfer star ratings or playcounts for music.
Some apps will copy via Home Sharing, some may not.For ones that don't, you can redownload them onto the merged library for free.In fact, as it becomes more common to stream music and videos to connected devices throughout the house, more homes may have just one PC.As that happens, you'll need to know how to consolidate i Tunes libraries from multiple machines into a single, large i Tunes library on the new computer.Due to the large size of most i Tunes libraries, consolidating them isn't as simple as burning a CD and loading it on the new computer.Luckily, there are a number of methods--some free, some with small costs--that can make this process easier.
