Synchronizing Files and Playlists to the MMS
Category: Mirage Media Server
Products: Mirage Media Servers MMS-2, MMS-2A, MMS-5, MMS-5A
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
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.
