Apple’s iTunes software has a voting feature that works with the iTunes DJ. I have music hooked up to my backyard via iTunes, an Airport Express, and a cheap receiver hooked up to outside speakers.
iTunes DJ works with various remotes such as the “Remote” software available for iPhone/iPod Touch. Using the Remote application, any one of my guests can login to my WiFi, connect to my music library, and begin to vote on songs. The universe of songs is defined by me and this can range from a single playlist to my entire music library. Unfortunately, the system doesn’t allow guests to stream their own music into mine so it can be played from their iPod Touch all the way through and out the speakers. That said, I’ve had a lot of fun with this voting feature.
Here is one of the playlists created by myself and friends as we voted. This is not necessarily the order that the songs were played. Enjoy!
