What’s a Firefly? The long answer is here.

The short answer is it’s one of my favorite app for my iPod touch (it works in iPhone as well.) It’s a Wi-Fi media server where you can stream your device’s iTunes library to any computer (Mac, PC & Linux) running iTunes (or compatible.) With Firefly, a room-full of people can enjoy your portable iTunes music collection!

firefly-waiUnfortunately, the Firefly package in Cydia doesn’t set up the server for you and there’s no convenient way to turn it on and off.

So I wrote an installation script that will automatically set up the server for you, packaged it with a BossPrefs’ Toggle so you can toggle the server on and off in BossPrefs. Then I whipped up an iPhone edition of its Web Admin Interface because the standard one was desperately crying for an update! Finally I make sure I can tell that the server is running at a glance. Voila, a status bar notifier icon is included! What more can you ask for?

iTunes allows you to keep distinct collection of Music & Videos in different iTunes Libraries. All you need to do is press and hold the Option key (the SHIFT key for Windows) while you click on iTunes’ icon in the Dock (or in Windows’ START menu) to launch it (read Apple’s instructions). A window will pop up to ask you to select and load the Library (or create a new one) of your choice.

Having different libraries is good for seperating collections. I have a main library where all my songs and videos are kept. I also keep an alternate collection which has private materials in it. Yup, home-made videos starring yours truly. This way private materials are kept from prying eyes (unless the eyes know about the top-secret Option/SHIFT+Click-to-Launch command). The ability to create different iTunes Libraries is also great for different users who share the same computer but have different entertainment preferences.

It’s thus a shame that the iPod touch doesn’t have this capability build-in. I want to carry but hide my videos in my pocket!

Hot off the press is the first public beta 5 of the long awaited PwnPlayer. Briefly it strives to be a better Music Player than the Music.app (aka the iPod.app in iPhone minus the Videos function) in our iPod touch . The list of features is long but its Lock-Screen Gesture Control hit my curiosity cat.
