How to Share Music or Video on iTunes

Want to share music on iTunes? Sometimes sharing your music or videos is not just click away if you don’t know the right steps, just like me who seldom uses the iTunes for sharing my old music or crappy videos.

Browsing the Apple site I found this helpful tutorial on how to share your music or video in iTunes, a very nice tutorial,

How to Share Music or Video on iTunes

  1. If desired, select the “Require password” checkbox and enter a password.
  2. Click OK.

On your Mac or PC, open iTunes. The shared iTunes library should appear under Shared with a Music note or a lock icon (if you chose ‘Require password’ and set a password).

Anyone on the same home network should be able to see and access your music. If you selected ‘Require password’, without the password, all that can be seen is your Library Name.

To set your Library Name, choose iTunes > Preferences (Mac) or choose Edit > Preferences (Windows). If you don’t see shared libraries, make sure ‘Shared libraries’ is checked on the General tab.



  1. iTunes will not show your own shared iTunes library.
  2. iTunes must be open on your computer in order for other people to see your shared library and playlists.
  3. Sharing is intended for personal use only, and is possible only with computers in the same network subnet.
