How to Play Music and Audio Sound Remotely From a PC on an iPad


Thanks to the Apple iPad's integration with iTunes, you can remotely control music that's playing through a PC or laptop. With the iPad app "Remote," you can access the iTunes library on any computer that's connected to your home network and use your iPad to control what music you hear.

Things You'll Need

  • "Remote" iTunes app for iPad
  • iTunes application installed on PC
  • Download the iTunes app "Remote" to your iPad from the iTunes Music Store.

  • Launch iTunes on the PC that you want to play music from.

  • Enable Home Sharing by clicking "Advanced" and "Enable Home Sharing" in the pull-down menu at the top of the iTunes window.

  • Launch the "Remote" app on your iPad.

  • Click the icon that looks like a cog at the upper-right hand corner of the app to display the settings menu. Click "Home Sharing" to enable remote playback through your iPad.

  • Click the iTunes icon that appears within "Remote." This will display the iTunes library of the PC on which you enabled Home Sharing.

  • Select any song through your iPad to begin playing it back through your PC.
