  • Hello there - how can I share my iTunes library between two users on the same computer? I put the library in a shared folder between both and have selected this library on both as well, but when I update iTunes with music etc it only appears on one?

    Thank you Joe - I tried this but it's only showing a teensy amount of music - the stuff on the second users account as opposed to the giagntic library on the 'main' account. I actually went to a Genius Bar and they said that apple doesn't really want you to share music between accounts - parents don't want to hear their kids music etc. Which seemed strange, but it might be the case sadly   Thanks anyway!

  • How can I share my music library with 2 users on the same PC??

    I have a home PC with 2 usernames on it. I have had an ipod for a while and have a fairly large library. My wife has just got an ipod and installed itunes under her username, but I can't seem to find a way of sharing my library between the 2. The 2 usernames both have access to exactly the same hard drive. The only way round it I've found is for my wife to login under my username. Can anyone help?!?

    You are most of the way there. Each user having access to hard drive is the key. If users are limited in file privileges this is harder.
    Any files you add to your library and any files she adds to her library are available to the other. Just not automatically. Each user must add the files to their own library using the add file or add folder option from menu bar.
    What I have done is set library location to a location outside of My Documents\My Music. On my network storage I have a folder names s:\itunes. Both accounts iTunes are set to use this location for the library.

  • How do I share my iTunes library with another user on the same computer?

    I trired to follow the instructions provided by I-Tunes which was to move the ITunes media library to the shared section, however, the computer will not allow me to do this.  When I drag the file to the shared section, it will only allow me to drop it into the Airport.  I tried hovering it over the "shared" title but it's not working.
    Is there another solution?

    Hello Kathy,
    Thank you for the details of the issue you are experiencing when trying to move your iTunes Library. 
    It sounds like you may be trying to move it to the "Shared" titled on the Finder Sidebar.  When you see "Shared" in the Finder Sidebar, this is just a title and not an actual folder. 
    I recommend moving your iTunes Library to either the "Public" folder in your user accoung to the "Shared" folder listed in the Users folder.  You can access the Shared folder by clicking Go at the top of the screen with Finder open, and selecting Computer>Macintosh HD>Users>Shared:
    Drag the iTunes Media folder to a public location. For example, you could move it to the Public folder in your Home folder (~/Public) or to a location outside your Home folder that other users can access (/Users/Shared).
    Important: Don't move the iTunes folder, the iTunes library file, or the iTunes library.xml file.

  • How can i share purchased apps between 2 diff users on the same mac?

    How can I share purchased apps between 2 diff users on the same mac?

    A purchased app is associated with an Apple ID. A user with a different Apple ID cannot use the app unless they also use the same Apple ID.
    I cannot use my wife's apps nor she mine because each were purchased with different Apple IDs.

  • How do I share one itunes account between two users on the same computer

    How do I share one itunes account between two users on the same computer without taking up twice as much space on my hard drive?

    You would need to move the itunes folder to a location that both users have permissions to access such as the Shared folder or any folder on the root level of the macintosh HD.
    You can find instructions here http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1203 This method allows you to share the content without sharing the same library.

  • How do i share my itunes library with other users on the same mac

    I'm trying to share my itunes library with other users on the same mac.  I have tried moving my library to a public folder but when the other user logs in they can't see it in the public folder?

    Presuming you moved the entire iTunes folder to the shared folder the other users need to start their iTunes while holding down the option/alt key and select the iTunes Library.itl file in the shared folder.  Only once should be necessary.  Note that any changes anybody makes will be seen by everybody, so you have to trust each other a lot.
    If all you moved are media files each user will have to add those files to their iTunes library.

  • HT1198 Can I share my iPhoto library with other logons on the same computer

    My iMac has three separate logons for members of my family. However, it would be very useful if we call all access the same iPhoto library. Is this possible?

    To give others selective access to your iPhoto library, you have the option of using Shared Photo Streams in iCloud, if the privacy implications don't bother you.
    There are more drawbacks to Shared Streams, than the privacy problem,Linc. Shared streams, imho, are perfect for showing off a small selection of photos, but nearly all work invested into the iPhoto library will be lost this way. Titles, caption, ratings do not transfer, and once added to the stream, you cannot rearrange the sequence of photos. Edits are no longer reversible.  If several family members are sharing photos this way on the same computer, they will all have to create their own photo libraries, create redundant photos, and have to recreate all the metadata. It is wasteful, if they really want to share a common iPhoto library.
    The only practical way to do what you want is to let the two family members who need write access log in to the same account to make changes.
    I am curious, Linc. Do you see problems with Apple's own recommendation, that LarryHN linked to -  - iPhoto: Sharing libraries among multiple users  ?

  • When streaming video from a web site my audio is attenuated differently with different users on the same computer.  withe either user, the sound is very muffled.  all the volumes are set to maximum.

    How can I adjust the safari sound volume other than the usual settings in the system preferences?
    I am using an apple mac air, updated with OS X Yosemite.   Looking at the same web site video from two different users accounts on the same computer,  the sound is drastically attenuated on one user account relative to the other. 
    Sound settings in system preferences are maxed out.

    It seems that the difference between the sites that will open and the one that won't is the Default Authentication provider is set to NTLM on those that open, and Negotiate (Kerberos) on the one that won't. The Authentication Provider for the Default zone
    is Claims Based Authentication on all the sites, just site B (which won't open) is set to Negotiate (Kerberos), the others are set to NTLM.
    Short term: can I change the provider to NTLM without destroying the site?
    Long term: point me in the direction for setting up Kerberos correctly on my server/farm, as from what I can tell Kerberos is the recommended path forward. I'll setup a non-production test site and get it figured out.
    Thanks much.

  • HT4914 Can I use iTunes match to share my iTunes library across different users on the same computer?

    I'm a teacher and I use my MBP in school and, while I've not had any issues with students looking through my computer, I'd like to use a seperate 'school' user just in case.  I need to have access to my iTunes library and I tried moving it to a shared folder but, possibly because of the size of my library, itdoesn't seem to work.  Is there a way I can use iTunes match to enable my 'school' user to access my library in the same way I can with my iPhone?

    Hey darkmavis86,
    Great question, and welcome to Apple Support Communities.
    I believe you would benefit from the following article:
    iTunes: How to share music between different accounts on a single computer
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1203
    However, if you do decide to use iTunes Match the answer to your question is "Yes". iTunes Match can be used to "sync" your iTunes library across multiple devices / computers / users.
    Thanks,
    Matt M.
