    "Import iPod Audio Files" Failures?

    I have heard from a couple of Correspondents that Import iPod Audio Files does not always work correctly. This script will enable you to import the files of selected iPod tracks into iTunes. First, it doesn't work with Windows-formatted iPods, but that hasn't been the problem. It appears that...

    ALERT: iTunes 4.7 AppleScripting Changes

    The latest iTunes 4.7 release has apparently changed the way the selection object is targeted. No longer can you simply get the application selection, you must target the particular window's selection. This means that any script which simply targeted the selection will have to be re-written to...

    "Copy To Play Order" Moved in v4.5

    Where'd it go? Used to be: sort your playlist tracks in whatever order you prefer, then Control-click on a track. In the conextual menu that appears you click on "Copy To Play Order". That set the order of the tracks in cement when sorted by the play order column (the farthest-left playlist...

    Make ACCs Bookmarkable

    Correspondent Josh Rafofsky drew my attention to this Apple Kbase article which describes how one can use a "third-party" application to change the file type of your AACs to make them bookmarkable. "How about a killer AppleScript that can do it for you?" asks Josh. I had to haul out my "Tao of...

    Copy to Play Order

    I've recently gotten some emails from people asking how to change the play order of tracks in the iPod (by AppleScript, if possible). The basic notion is that after copying tracks to an iPod playlist, iPod re-orders the tracks alphanumerically..."so, can I prefix each track with its track number...

    iTunes AppleScripts Shortcuts in Panther!

    Panther has a cool feature that allows you to set keyboard shortcuts for pretty much any application, including iTunes. However, one thing I discovered is that you can set keyboard shortcuts to the AppleScripts in your iTunes Scripts Menu. Simply follow the instructions in Mac Help for setting...

    iTunes selecting iPod?

    OK, I should probably know what's going on here, but I don't. Listen: Whenever I leave iTunes unattended for a few minutes (as few as fifteen or so) the iPod source gets selected in the browser window. Let's say I'm working in a playlist called "My Stuff". Nothing is playing, I'm just tweaking...

    New Stuff in iTunes 4.1

    New playlist property shared. Set a user playlist to be shared on your local network. You can get it anytime, but if "Share my music" is NOT checked, you get a file permission error when trying to set--at least, I got an error. New application properties current stream URL and current stream...

    Scripters Tip - Selected with Shuffle Off

    Here's something I hadn't realized: if you are using selection, check beforehand to make sure shuffle of view of front window is off, otherwise, your selected tracks will also be shuffled. This may not be what you had in mind, especially if you are doing a "repeat with i from 1 to (count of...

    Missing tracks, yet files exist -- a theory

    A seemingly persistent problem for iTuners is when tracks suddenly appear as missing -- with the (!) designation -- and yet the files for the tracks are intact. In my own case I have been noticing that this happens most frequently in live-updating Smart Playlists (although it does happen in...

    Here are the latest AppleScripts posted at Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes: New: OLGA Tabulature Search - Michael Clabough (website) submitted a script to Mac OS X Hints a couple of weeks ago and he has allowed us to post it in its compiled form.

    About sample code in this forum

    You can display AppleScript code in your message by using vb Code. The vB Code button labelled "#" on the Post New Thread form will place CODE tags around whatever you paste into its box. Additionally, I put SIZE=1 tags around the CODE tags to make the script smaller on the page and less likely...

    "location" of CD tracks

    (I don't know what happened to the previous post--I may have deleted it, my apologies.) The problem is the ":" in the path name, which the Finder sees as a directory delimiter. Try using POSIX path of filepath. ... BTW: I really like your syntax: get first source whose kind is audio CD And...

    Buncha Scripts this week

    The past week I've posted a batch of scripts, and I'll try to get in the habit of announcing them here when I do. One I thought forum users in particular may like is called Gimme an iTMS Search String!. It will create an iTunes Music Store search URL based on tag info from a selected track. The...

    BPM Query

    This thread http://www.ipodlounge.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=3870 was in danger of going off-track on any more BPM messages, so I'll ask here. Do any of the accessible CD databases provide BPM info? Perhaps via SOAP or even in the HTML? I know most DJ subscription services (and pro...

    Lab rats wanted

    The only way to get a user's Music folder is by parsing the iTunes Music Library.xml file. The following script does that and opens the Music folder, no matter where it is. Hopefully. I'm curious if it doesn't work. It's part of a larger (freeware!) project I'm working on. If anyone is...
