There's a plugin to access your local iTunes library. You can find info about it here. It currently works on Macs out of the box. It will work on Windows with some minor modifications.

Hu! Looking good. Thanks for this link.
XBMC running on my old Xbox1. Might it work to access my PC?
Anyhow, would be happy if anyone could maker tutorial for modification. Or is uploading a modifierd version. Did not have any experience in modifying these files by myselve...

The "%20" strings are decoded to spaces before doing the access. They are only encoded inside the XML, so it should be "iTunes Music" on your drive.
Can you post a debug log (found at ~/Library/Logs/xbmc.log) when it fails, after you have mounted the "iTunes Music" drive on your ATV. Post it to http://pastebin.com.

ok, reset the mounts for this to:
iMac : AppleTV
/Volumes/JINGOdisk1/iTunes Music : /Volumes/JINGOdisk1/iTunes Music
/Users/<mac_user>/Music/iTunes : /Volumes/JINGOitunes
the path to the iTunes Music Library.xml is hardcoded to "/mnt/Scratch/Volumes/JINGOitunes/iTunes Music Library.xml"
the paths recorded in this file are of format:
the pastebin log file is here ([HTML]http://pastebin.com/m7fff07b0[/HTML]) and contains starting up xbmc, removing previous itunes source, adding new itunes source, attempting to browse the library once scanned and shutdown.
the top error for Lircmap.xml doesnt exist, though i imagine this is due to me using the OS X platform...
at 12:01:43 there is an error:
Quote:ERROR: Missing or invalid <name> and/or <path> in source
at 12:02:16 has the error:
Quote:ERROR: Unable to load /Users/frontrow/Library/Application Support/XBMC/userdata/favourites.xml (row 0 column 0)
12:02:43 is when the new source is added and scanning starts.
12:02:55 the errors that occur here are because the files dont exist.
12:02:58 is when i try to browse into the new folder. errors ensue...
apologies for the long post, but thought it may help by providing a timeline of activities and trying to help out with info where possible
hoping this provides something good...

i would second that request, using xbmc latest t3ch release on my oldskool xbox1 and would love to have the opportunity to access my nice little ituns-db. it took me several months to clean the mp3 mess up and rename all files and put in some little covers.. it's workin' via smb right now, but with limited features..
i'm still grateful, don't get me wrong! but a itunes-direct-access woud be even better (... think about this genius stuff... it's AWEsome)...
all in all... i'm thinkin' of gettin myself one of those htpcs ... but for now, i'm stuck with my xbmc (on xbox) -> an i will use xbmcPC for this htpc, that's for sure. it's simply the best =)
thanks for everything =)
/man, i'm regged for like 3 years and this is my 2nd post. i gotta do sth about it =)

I've got a similar problem to Joshytree. I'm trying to stream my iTunes library out to my two internet radios--a Logik IR100 and a Freecom MusicPal. I've installed XBMC as a UPnP media server and successfully imported the iTunes library into XBMC. Both radios can see XBMC. However, when I click on "music files" --or any of the other options under XBMC as it appears on the internet radios, it says "No content". I had previously tried a quite expensive closed source UPnP media server and that showed all the iTunes library on the radios, including playlists.
Is there any way I can get this to work? It's frustrating to be this near to making XBMC work with the radios, but so far....
Import iPhoto Library on my Apple TV? - drwickman - 2009-01-02 22:51
I have an iPhoto library synced with my ATV, when i go into the pictures section i click <<import iphoto library>>, it scans for a sec and disappears.
I have checked the plugins in the xbmc folder and even downloaded the new plugin.
- tintamarre - 2009-01-05 00:09
The reason, why it is not working, is that there are no iPhoto Library (nor iPhoto software) on the AppleTV.
Something must probably exist to view you synced photos, but i dont know it.
iPhoto plugin not working on MBP - bvknight - 2009-01-19 07:59
After installing XBMC yesterday I've got my video library working fine, as well as itunes, however when I go to iPhoto the plugin refuses to load any of my photos. It says "iPhoto 100%" and "Loading Directory" and "Received 0 items", but after that it closes and there are still no photos. I've looked at the package contents and plugin folders for XBMC.app and also the same ones in Application Support, taking a look at the default.py file to check the directories, but it's correctly pointing to my AlbumData.xml. I reinstalled the latest download, Atlantis bf1, but the problem is still there. When I check the log I see this when the iphoto plugin runs:

I'm not running on an Apple TV, just my MBP, and I haven't altered the files. Any clue why this isn't working? Why am I missing the settings.xml file?
