Engadget:
How-To Control iTunes from any web browser
December 14, 2005 @ 07:02:50

From Engadget today, there's a look at how you can, using a PHP installation and some scripts, control iTunes from any web browser.

For today's how-to we're going to set up a simple web server in XP so that we can control iTunes remotely.

They give you a zip file of all of the images and PHP scripts you'll need. They then walk you through the installation of PHP on WinXP, using something called BRS WebWeaver as the server. Then you start it all up, head over to the player.php script, and, if all went well, you'll have a working iTunes interface.
