    Nice little guide on how to control iTunes via a web-page locally hosted, very easy to set-up considering Mac OSX ships with Apache and PHP which can be enabled at the click of a button: http://www.macmod.com/content/view/95// :)


    Note that the article states that PHP doesn't come with OSX, but in-fact it does, it's simply not enabled by default. To enable PHP do the following:

    I can't think of one either, just thought it was cool :p

    If I really need to control one computer from another, I always use VNC anyway :)

    can you get apple script to list all of the libraries the iTunes thing has, and playlists, and then let you sort them, and or add them to party mix.
