An Unofficial Guide to Mac Mini Media Servers (Revised)

by Akapod on 02-12-2013 at 06:04 PM
Last year, I cobbled together a draft of a guide to setting up a media server on a Mac Mini. It's intended to reflect what the consensus is around here, at least as to the basic issues. I've now revised the guide (with the help of a couple of folk here at CA) and have included a number of screenshots as well, which I hope people will find helpful.


It's free, and it's available at the iTunes Bookstore.

Thanks.

UPDATE: I posted a revised version today. Same link at Scribd.

First off, CD sales are way, way down, and they haven't been offset by on-line purchases.



Revenue is at the lowest point in 40 years, and it doesn't look like any turnaround is at hand.

But revenue going to artists may be much better off.
