    It seems like this gets asked a lot. I would search
    the archives.

    Thanks for the info Todd, I did that and it looks squeezebox is
    definitively the good choice, and Soundbridge looks to be an ersatz
    that is not worth the value !
    Just wanted to get an explanation about something: it looks from what I
    see in a previous post that squeezebox or slimserver could be
    controlled from Itunes, is it right or did I misunderstand ?

    Thanks for all

    here's a handy page: http://www.slimdevices.com/dev_plugins.html

    I thought there've been some Applescript solutions posted for doing this
    from a Mac. Yeah, here it is:

    Vincèn, I'm very happy with SlimP3 and Squeezebox.

    The relation to iTunes is a little different from what you might be
    thinking... SlimServer gets the music and playlists from iTunes. Then,
    you control music play either from the remote (just like a TV or HiFi
    remote) or from a web browser pointed to a special address

    http://your.server:9000

    This opens lots of possibilities. In particular, you can control your
    music from a wireless laptop or a PDA/WinCE device which has WiFi.
    The remote works quite well too.

    I manage my music library and playlists on iTunes.

    Note that SlimServer/Squeezebox cannot play music you've purchased
    from the iTunes music store... Apple's copy protections prevent that.
    But, MP3 and now FLAC work fine.

    Hope this helps.

    Unless you remove the copy protection that is. (hint, google for hymn).
