The Mirage Media Server comes with a utility that will automatically synchronize folders on

your network, or the contents of your iTunes or Windows Media Player libraries with your

Mirage Media Server.

The Computers section of the Content tab lists all of the computers on your network that have

this utility installed and are contributing to your MMS library.

If you want to stop synchronizing with one of the computers, clicking the “X” next to the

computer name will remove it from the list, and will remove all content contributed by that

computer from your MMS library.

To install the Mirage Media Sync software, browse to this page using the computer that you

want to automatically keep synchronized with your server, and click on the appropriate

download link (Mac or PC).

Once installed, the Mirage Media Sync software can be configured to synchronize your MMS

with iTunes, Windows Media Player (Windows PC’s only), or folders on your hard drive

containing music.

You can make selections to instruct the synchronization software to synchronize all music, or

you can select individual playlists to be copied to your MMS.

All content synchronized with this utility is physically copied to the MMS to provide for

backup and high availability. This means that once synchronized, you can still play your content

on the MMS, even when your computer is off.
