I have collection of approximately 15k songs, I forget how many exactly; my xml database is 19 MB.

How can I extract a subset of that data- five and four-star songs only, for example- for upload to MusicMobs?

thanks in advance...

You can do this....

Create a Smart Playlist (File > New Smart Playlist)

Setup the playlist like this...

Match Following Condition:
My Rating is in the range 4 stars to 5 stars

You can also limit the number of songs or the total file size of the songs for the playlist. When you click OK iTunes will add all songs rated 4-5 stars into the playlist. Very useful feature.

Now click on the smart playlist you created in the Source pane. Go to File > Export Song List. This will create a text/XML file of the songs in that playlist.

Aye.

I hadn't remembered that you can export a SmartList to an xml... I already had a suitable smartlist!

thanks
