playlist selection only shows content from the last playlist

When I pick a playlist from MPFreaker, all my playlists in iTunes are shown. Picking one changes to that playlist in iTunes.

But MPFreaker only shows the songs in the last playlist I have, no matter what I do. For a while it was 'wedding playlist', then 'untitled playlist, now it's 'the orb' -- I've tried deleting and/or renaming playlists to see what happens. The end result is that it's always the contents from the last one iTunes has.

Directory selection works, but I don't want to work on my entire library at once.

Help!

Known bug in 1.9.3

What's happening is that MPFreaker is having trouble locating your iTunes information, and there is a bug in 1.9.3's fallback code that would otherwise deal with this. It will be fixed for the next release, though I must say that it is highly unusual for MPFreaker to be unable to find your iTunes library information to begin with.

For now, for anyone experiencing this problem I would suggest going back to the previous version:

Awesome -- thanks fo the quick reply and link.

AS an aside -- is there anything I can do or tweak to help it find my library? I'd be happy to try since it sounds like this shouldn't be happening.

Thanks!

The other person I have communicated with experiencing this problem was using a particular NAS setup that we can't easily replicate here.

You could send us your log file to mpfreaker@lairware.com to see if there's a clue in there. It's just a zipped text file if you want to have a look yourself. It can be found in:
