I apologise if this is an overly silly usage question...
I am quite keen to buy a Mac Mini (Intel Core Duo one) to use with an LCD monitor in another part of the house, and ITunes would seem to be the music player of choice on that box.
If I have my music library being served from its current (Windows) server by Firefly (and also Twonkyvision), what will be the experience of being able to play that music on the Mac using Itunes?
* Will it work at all (I am guessing the DAAP and Rendezvous implementation in Firefly will make it appear as another ITunes server to ITunes on the Mac)?
* What will happen with any WMA files that are in the library being served from Firefly (and which serve just fine to my Soundbridge)? Will the "player" copy of ITunes do an on-the-fly format conversion to MP3 when playing, will it ignore files in lists it is sent by Firefly with a .wma extension? I don't want the WMA files transcoded by Firefly because they don't need to be for use with the Soundbridge - just served as-is, but ITunes transcodes WMA files to MP3 when they are "local" to it, doesn't it?
* Is there some other player software I should use on the Mac instead which will co-exist better with a Firefly DAAP server (or Twonkyvision using UPNP AV for that matter), given my music library has more WMA files than MP3, and that isn't about to change? Rather than serving to the Mac at all from a server application, should I just map the folder on the server as a network drive on the Mac and use it "directly" - and again which player app would be most suitable for that?
