iTunes View is Blank

Post by cerickard2 » Fri Aug 14, 2015 10:48 pm

When I go to the iTunes View tab, everything in the right column is blank, no matter which of the four items I choose from the left column. I am running Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard with the latest version of the iHomeServer. The app allows me to start and stop iTunes, so it does see it and can control it. iTunes is available from the network and I can play videos when running as a service.

Any clues as to what I need to change to make this work?

Thanks!

iTunes 12.2 has changed the way the Library xml file is made available to third party apps such as iHomeServer. On new iTunes installations, by default, iTunes no longer creates the XML file which we use to read the iTunes library. This can be fixed by clicking an option within iTunes preferences.

Please can you manually run iTunes on your computer and under iTunes Preferences on the "Advanced" tab, please check the option to "Share the iTunes Library XML file with other applications". Then you can restart iHomeServer and your iTunes library view will be visible again
