No, there is not, and there never will be seeing as Apple refuses to open their protocols.

But LimeWire p2p software can communicate with XBMC..
Surely this means it's in somebodies knowledge to communicate the other way...

Just installed Firefly. It is a nice workaround. Has anyone figured out how to hide the song ID? Any chance of metadata and/or artwork?

Finally had to upgrade to itunes 7 as I bought a new ipod. Installed Bonjour and Firefly, changed the firefly port to 3689 and viola it all worked fine. I can see my itunes playlists, the artwork still comes up, very pleased, surprised it was so easy, not sure why I stalled doing this before.

Yeah, Firefly is pretty awesome. I've been using it since 7 came out and its worked pretty flawlessly.

Has anyone successfully managed to get Firefly serving up music to XBMC?
I using a default install of Firefly (mt-daapd) on Debian Linux installed on a SLUG.
Using Rhythmbox on Ubuntu Linux I am able to connect to Firefly and play music just fine. Although I see ALL my music, I cannot see the playlists I have created in Firefly.
In XBMC (SVN-r10070), it does find Firefly when I add a new Music Media Source. I can see and add each Playlist as a source but when I click the Playlist name there is nothing underneath it. I cannot figure how to play the Playlist either. Am I doing something wrong.
I believe it is XBMC that is the issue here, as mentioned earlier in the thread its probably because the DAAP implementation is not up-to-date.

so here we are a year later. What's the word on iTunes 7 and XBMC using DAAP?
- Gamester17 - 2008-01-05 01:46
Still no open source solution (read open source "library").
Blame Apple. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITunes
Quote:With the release of iTunes 7.0, Apple changed their implementation of DAAP. This change prevents any third-party client, such as a computer running Linux, a modified Xbox, or any computer without iTunes installed, from connecting to a remote iTunes repository. iTunes will still connect as a client to other iTunes servers and to third-party servers.Closed and proprietary protocols are bad, ...mmmmmmkay
New Problem (iTunes) - l11l1VeNoM1l11l - 2008-01-23 04:31
K, figured out the last one on my own AFTER I posted the help question. But now I've run into something new.
I'm running the 1-13-2008 version of XBMC (latest out) and I enjoy it. The menus are nicer and everything, and Youtube 2 actually works as opposed to the older versions I've used. However, I can't connect to my iTunes DAAP.
I used to know how to do it by editing the sources.xml file, but it's not there anymore.
Can someone step me through this, please? The FAQ site isn't exactly up to date on it.

The newer versions of iTunes don't support this anymore. I don't think it's possible.
