NOTE***: Notice the Http address we are using is your computers IP Address. A far better solution is to use your computer's host name in place of the IP Address, since your IP could change. You can find this by selecting Sharing from your System Preferences. In my case my host name is iclarifieds-macbook.local. Therefore, the address I would have put into safari is http://iclarifieds-macbook.local:3569

Luis: Actually, you can control the volume today by tapping once on the album art image to display the additional controls, similar to showing the additional controls in the iPod application. From here you can adjust the volume by tapping the volume up/down icons or tapping directly on the volume bar to set to a specific position. You can also set the current playlist\'s shuffle and repeat state, rate the current song, and select AirTunes speakers (if you have an AirPort Express in your network). To hide these controls just tap the album art again. You don\'t actually have to purchase a license to gain access to these, the demo version\'s only limitation is the registration prompts for 1/3 of the items in your media library.
