You can download via MLInstaller. This is the place you get most all MainLobby Suite software. The betas are towards the bottom of the applications list.

Beta Time Extension

Postby JaySway » Wed Apr 23, 2008 4:09 pm

Is it possible to extend the date of expiration for the Itunes plug in? I stopped working with it over a week ago because it expired.

As with most all beta plugins, send an email to dave at cinemaronline dot com and request a beta extension license.

Yet another update:
http://www.cinemaronlineforums.com/wiki ... .0.1999.5D

This should hopefully resolve issues of the library database getting out of sync. Let us know if there are any bugs still remaining.

We have another release today.

http://www.cinemaronlineforums.com/wiki ... ease_Notes

We recommend overwriting the database and starting from scratch during install.

We'd like to hear from anyone who is still having issues after updating to this release.

Especially those who are having problems with larger collections or during importing.

I am testing with 56,000 song library. It did take hours (I think eight) for the MLiTunes Service to build it's database. One of those launch and let it run all night things.

I would like to join in on this beta as well. I have what is probably a stupid question but can't find a direct answer in the posts.

does the iTunes plugin require musiclobby or is it independent from musiclobby? From reading the Wiki is sounds like Musiclobby is not used.

Is that correct?

bigDvette,

The iTunes plugin does not require MusicLobby. The plugin communicates with iTunes and since the scenes are completely customizable, we use core components from MainLobby's library to build the scenes.

Anyone can download the beta currently.

From MLServer > HELP > CINEMAR INSTALLATION ASSISTANT

Then search for iTunes.

You'll need to install the iTunes service on your iTunes machine and the iTunes plugin on your MLServer machine.

check the wiki for more info.
