I have set up home share and can now access itunes from my computer on my ipad. However, when I play music on the ipad it actually plays on the PC. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

iPad, iOS 6.1.4

    Hello Tintinandcaptainhaddock,


    I found some steps you can take to get the music from your computer to play through your iPad using Home Sharing:


    iPad and iPod touch

    To listen to shared music:

    1. With iOS 5 and later, tap Music > More... > Shared or tap iPod > Library with earlier versions of iOS.
    2. Select a shared library.

    To watch shared videos:

    1. Tap Videos > Shared.
    2. Select a shared library.

    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
