Mac Media Server

This project is currently on an indefinite hiatus. I might return to it in the future, but it’s a low priority item at the moment.


The blueprint for my home media setup. What hardware and software I used and how I set the whole thing up.

Part 1: Going Headless

The initial setup of the Mac Mini and setting up screen sharing for remote management of the media server.

Part 2: Transferring iTunes

Moving the media files from an old iTunes Library to the master library on the Mac Mini.

Part 3: Fit Headless

Installing and setting up the Fit Headless HDMI display dongle.

Part 4: Archiving my DVD Library

The software setup and configuration for ripping my DVD library into an iTunes-friendly format for playback on Apple devices.
