I am trying to determine the best way to create a networked audio distribution setup and will first provide some background information. I plan to run iTunes on a Windows Home Server for several reasons that are interrelated:
- I use iTunes exclusively for music playback and currently use AirPlay on several speakers.
- I purchase/add 99.9% of my music through iTunes.
- Purchases are almost always made on-the-go on my iPhone or iPad.
- I want my library available anywhere in the house.
- The WHS setup allows my networked library to stay up-to-date via automatic downloads of new content.
- I want to set the system up once and not have to touch it again (this is really to make the system easier to use for friends and family).
With the foregoing in mind, is there a way to have audio|acacia auto-update playlists without the necessity of restarting iTunes? This will not really be an option, since iTunes is supposed to run 24/7 on my WHS or possibly a Rasberry Pi if I can get over the Linux hurdle
END GOAL: I want to have song purchases made on, e.g., my iPhone automatically and seamlessly integrate with my media setup with no manual input. Can audio|acacia handle this?
