Allow sharing of Music and Pictures folders between users in a family account
Now that it's possible to stream the content of the Music directory with XBox music, it would be great to let multiple accounts share the one source of files - at least between family members in a family account. This would mimic many people's existing use-case of having one store of files on a NAS or server in the home, then letting everyone stream simultaneously from this.
When one account shares their "Music" folder, this shared link isn't recognised by XBox music, as only the real "Music" folder is found.
My workaround is to share my Music folder with the destination account. I then make a new subfolder in the destination account's Music folder called "Shared Music" and copy the content across. This saves me uploading the same files twice, once for each user, but still duplicates content (unless you de-duplicate like many competing services do.) I'm not yet even sure whether this workaround will truly work properly, as the "copying" popup hasn't moved past 0%...
