Can you have 2 Macs, using 2 iTunes libraries..


Well-known Member
Just a thought, for a maybe future project.

I have an iMac with my iTunes library on. Haven't got many movies on there as would fill my HDD. I would want movies to be able to use home sharing.

So could I buy say a Mac mini, have that running, make an iTunes library, add movies to it, and share both iTunes libraries to an Apple TV, ie one on iMac with music, other on Mac mini with movies?.

I'd prefer a NAS to work for my movie bit but not sure if I can add movies to iMac iTunes library and keep movies on NAS and music on iMac HDD, asked this question on other thread.

What do you want to watch the movie/listen to the music on, you just want to be able to share them on the other computer? Or do you have an apple tv or something?

To be honest, you should be able to do it through home sharing, but I wouldn't faff about for that, I'd just use something like plex
