Can't Scan Playlist After Tiger Update

Postby Freaker » Thu May 05, 2005 5:05 pm

After updating to Tiger I can no longer scan playlist created in iTunes. I get the following error, "Couldn't get path from alias of artist/song". I can choose a folder from my library in the disk directory and the files appear. And selecting one of those songs with "play" plays the song so there is communication with iTunes. Help.

MPFreaker doesn't work in Tiger...

Same here. Tiger and MPFreaker does not work.

I think it is the other handling of open Files in Tiger vs. Panther. Tiger are more restrictive as Panther. So MPFreaker looks like didn't get access to these files anymore when parallel iTunes is open and has opened the Files.
MPFreaker in Version 1.0 changed the folder to the Playlist and iTunes parallel open these Files too. So no other Application, like iTunes, can't open these files twice.

So wee have to wait until these buck is fixed.

MPFreaker 1.0 and Tiger

Postby beastie » Mon May 09, 2005 3:14 pm

Thanks to helpful MPFreaker users, we have fixed this problem for the next version. There are also a lot of architectural changes we've made to ensure more consistency with what iTunes displays, and improved handling of music files for those few who rarely or never use iTunes. Unfortunately, these changes are still undergoing refinement and testing, which prevents us from posting a new version as of yet.

As the initial poster pointed out, the workaround is to access your music library by directory instead of by playlist. For most users, this is the Music folder in your home folder ... more efficiently used by stepping inside iTunes/iTunes Music/ within and selecting a particular artist's folder instead of the whole kit and kaboodle.

Thanks for your patience while MPFreaker 1.0.1 gestates.
