I have my iTunes library on my main computer (Mac Pro desktop). I have an Airport Extreme wireless network.

Can I access my iTunes library wirelessly on my Macbook (laptop)? I'd like to be able to play the songs on the laptop without having to copy the files to it.

If so, how would I do this?

Thanks for any info.

I think you want to activate iTunes Sharing on your Mac Pro.

Thanks. I just activated sharing in iTunes and now my library shows up as a playist on the other computer in iTunes! I'm giddy it was that easy!

is there a way to do this with a NAS? I have all my music and movies stored on a network drive to keep my macbook pro clutter free.
