Exclamation iTunes-Match Music storage for iTunes ($24.99 pyear) - November 3, 2014, 09:05 PM

So one of my biggest issues is losing my iTunes playlist for my iPod classic.

8,000 songs....

My desktop i built always decide to take a shit every few years and I normally have to redo my entire playlist. I normally download the playlist text and XML file to reload but most times I still have to physically point back to the actually file i put into itunes...

So I read about iCloud but that is only for music purchased from iTunes...
If not they a have a subscription service ($24.99) per year for iTunes-Match.

This is suppose to basically be your whole library easy access and never losing it when a computer goes down. You can also store non iTunes purchased music on itunes match...

So anyone using it? or have another idea?
I'm scared to have my shit stored on a laptop or small terabyte drive...
but not sure I am sold on the paid cloud solution.


what do you guys think?

I haven't used it, but $24 to "legitimatize" your music library doesn't seem like a bad deal at all to me...

I use Google Play Music for a few reasons:
- $0.00. It's free to back up your entire library on all devices to Google's Cloud. $10/mo for their full featured service.


- It syncs & backs up the library all devices that installed the app automatically. Turn it on, forget it.

- It's device agnostic. iTunes, a music folder, PC, Mac, iPhone - it doesn't care.

- Streaming across all devices and on the web. Just log into the account. Preview and purchase as well.

$120 a year is a lot more than $25 a year, but you get what you pay for I guess.

True, but it costs nothing to store music.

I've been using it since it was in Beta several years ago. Saved music from several machines and HDs that have long since crapped out.

It used to be totally free everything. Ever since they added the radio functionality and some other tidbits, they tacked on a payed component.

If you ever need total access to your library and all features, subscribe for a month then cancel.

I think they also give you a free 30-day trial on the full featured service - so you can use this and then cancel.

I'm confused. So if you run their regular service, you get all access, then when you cancel, you still maintain access to store music and stream it whenever despite no longer having a subscription?

No, he was saying if you needed something beyond the free account, you could always subscribe for a month to use it that month.
The $10 Google Play all access lets you listen to anything in the Google Play library, no commercials etc.

I don't know what the limits are on the standard Google Play music account as far as how many GB etc.. or if they even have a limit, but that is free.
nevermind found it

Song storage limits for Google Play Music
You can add up to 20,000 songs (up to 300MB per song) to Google Play Music from your personal music collection using Music Manager. Once you've added your music through Music Manager, you can listen to it through the Google Play Music app and on your computer.
Maybe the $10/month eliminates this limit also?

Quote:
Music purchased from the Google Play store or added from All Access doesn't count toward limit
So that limit is only on music you upload to Google Play from other sources...

i pay for itunes match. But i have never had a huge library invested. So it was easy for me... I listen to itunes radio every day, so i enjoy the service.

Be aware though, when i purchased itunes match, it wiped my playlists..so just be aware.


I was paying for pandora, but got sick of the repeated songs.... This is cheaper. $2/month is silly cheap. I never listen to FM..cancelled XM radio..best deal for what I use it for.
