Home Sharing

Home Sharing lets you play music, movies, and TV shows on iPod touch from the iTunes library
on your Mac or PC. iPod touch and your computer must be on the same Wi-Fi network. On your
computer, iTunes must be open, with Home Sharing turned on and logged in using the same
Apple ID as Home Sharing on iPod touch.

Note: Home Sharing requires iTunes 10.2 or later, available at www.itunes.com/download. Bonus
content, such as digital booklets and iTunes Extras, can’t be shared.

Play music from your iTunes library on iPod touch:


In iTunes on your computer, choose Advanced > Turn On Home Sharing.


Log in, then click Create Home Share.


On iPod touch, go to Settings > Music, then log in to Home Sharing using the same Apple ID

and password.


In Music, tap More, then tap Shared and choose your computer’s library.

Return to content on iPod touch

Tap Shared and choose My iPod touch.
