I can’t imagine how DNS services on my iPhone could chew up 5.7 MB of data in two weeks. These are tiny little queries being made, aren’t they?

Works with iTunes 10 and Lion

After (mostly unsuccessful) Googling for how to stream iTunes over SSH, I finally tracked down the difficult bits myself and put together a four three-line script:

#!/bin/sh
dns-sd -P "Home iTunes" _daap._tcp local 3689 localhost.local. 
  127.0.0.1 "Arbitrary text record" & 
trap "kill $!" 0 1 2 15
ssh -C -N -L 3689:localhost:3689 myusername@blahblahblah.dyndns.org

Update: I’ve cut this down to three lines using trap

Update: You can do this with iPhoto too.

Update: Works with OS X 10.7 Lion.
