    iTunes and Slimserver integration FAQ?

    Yep--got that.

    Ok--perhaps here's my problem/question/issue:

    I've got the following directory structure:
    /home/itunes
    contains my iTunes directory, and my iTunes Music
    Library.xml, as well as any purchased music

    /home/mp3
    contains all my mp3s

    The iTunes Music Library.xml file references the MP3s that
    are in /home/mp3, and iTunes plays them fine.

    Which path should be put into iTunes Music Folder? /home/mp3
    or /home/itunes (or /home/itunes/iTunes)?

    Is this a bad directory layout?

    Thanks!

    You would put /home/mp3 into your "iTunes Music Folder" entry.
    Basically SlimServer needs to cross-reference with iTunes where the
    music is actually physically stored.
