How To Sync Itunes (Or Any App That Has A Library)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I love BTSync! It has been a godsend. I'm wondering if someone can help me out. Hopefully someone has already managed to accomplish this. 

 

I've got 3 computers (1 laptop, 2 desktops). I would really like to treat them as terminals, where I've got access to all the same files and can seamless switch between computers. This doesn't seem to be an issue with simple file/folder sync but seems to cause issues with things like iTunes where the library file can get confused if directories change/don't match. Does anyone have a solution for this? I want to give read/write permissions so that any changes made from a computer will be pushed to all.

I would expect any application that uses database-style storage (iTunes, iPhoto etc) to get upset if a sync occurs while that program is open. If that's what you're seeing, I would expect the solution to be to only have iTunes open on one machine at a time.

I've done something like this with a calibre library.  As long as it's only open on one computer at a time, it seems to work fine - the library database files are in the synced folderset, so the calibre on the other computer doesn't notice the change when it's opened later.
