  1. I have a lot of compilations in my music collection. This means I have many many artists which are only on one or two compilations. Now when I call the mini player in Alfred and select "Artists" I see way too many artists which I would never want to see in that list. It would be great to have an option to ignore artists which are only on compilations. The same goes to "Play random Album", it would be nice to have an option to play random album which is not a compilation.
  2. I feel like I'm losing my mind: I can't figure out how to queue up an entire album from the mini player. Whenever I search albums, they show up but my only option is to select them, which dives into the album and only allows me to select a single song. Even if I pick the first track in the album, it stops playing after it finishes. Can someone PLEASE help?
  3. Whenever I select a track to play in the Mini Player, iTunes launches and plays the track. Is that how it's supposed to be, and if not, how can I stop it happening? This happens when I open Mini Player and press enter when a track is selected, or click on Mini Player's play icon.
  4. It would be extremely helpful if we could add music to the iTunes queue via Play Next or Add to Up Next from Alfred's iTunes mini player. Since this queue feature came out in iTunes I pretty much only use it to play music, so now I can't use Alfred to add music to play Thanks
  5. Hello Alfred Community! Firstly, thank you for the ongoing support and development work for the Alfred software - it makes a big improvement to my workflow which is very valuable. This is only a very small bug that does not make a very big difference to the utility of the program, but here is the information in case a fix would like to be developed. Bug overview When using the miniplayer to select a song from an album and the shuffle function is switched on in iTunes, an alternative (and incorrect) track to the one selected in the miniplayer is played. Software versions OS X: 10.10.5 (Yosemite) Alfred: 2.8.2 (432) iTunes: Bug replication instructions (5 steps required) 1) Open iTunes and switch on the shuffle mode. This can be found at the top of the window, next to the album artwork displayed next to the playbar. It illuminates blue when switched on. 2) Open Alfred and open the iTunes miniplayer using the appropriate key command (Ctrl + Cmd + Enter for me) 3) Search for any album of choice within the miniplayer 4) Hit return to show a list of the tracks on the chosen album and select any single song from the list. Hit return to play the chosen song in iTunes. In this example, the song 'Losing A Whole Year' was selected in the miniplayer. 5) Notice how iTunes plays a song selected at random (due to the shuffle feature) from the correct album (in this case 'Burning Man') instead of the chosen track. Additional observations 1) This error does not occur when searching and selecting a specific song 2) Selecting a song in iTunes' search feature with shuffle enabled in a similar does play the correct song, so long as the song is double clicked with the mouse instead of using a double-press of the enter key, in which case a similar bug is present as within the Alfred Miniplayer. Thank you for your time and if there are any further queries to do with this bug I will do my best to answer quickly and helpfully. Cheers, JLawrie Alfred v2 User [EDIT] Unable to upload screenshots to this post to match the instructions, but screenshots can be sent by alternative media if necessary.
  6. The mini player accepts half stars but I don't have half stars enabled in iTunes (nor do I want to). I'd like to disable half star input. I've looked in Alfred's preferences for a setting but couldn't find anything obvious. Does anyone know if there is a hidden switch to do this?
  7. I'm sorry this post is quite wordy. Feel free to skip to the summary of my suggestion at the bottom. Please post if you would also like to see these features. In the iTunes Miniplayer, you can select songs by an album, artist, genre or playlist. When you select an album, you can choose a specific song from that album and play it. Thereafter, the rest of the album will play. Great. I love the behaviour of the Miniplayer in this case. But what if I want to choose an item from a playlist and then listen to the rest of the playlist? Then I have to select a playlist and hit "Next Song" until I get to the one I want. This can be irritating for large playlists. Further, the Miniplayer behaves similarly if I want to play all the songs by one artist or from one genre. A solution for this problem would be the following behaviour: Let's say I have a playlist called "Top Songs". I open the Miniplayer → I begin to type "Top Songs → "Top Songs" appears in the menu → I select "Top Songs" → A list of the songs in the "Top Songs" playlist appears At this point, we encounter a different problem. Let's say "Top Songs" contains 1000 songs. It is unreasonable to scroll through the a list of 1000 songs in the Miniplayer to select the one you want. So, you type in the name of the song and press enter. Unfortunately, the Miniplayer's current behaviour leads to the creation of a temporary playlist that contains only that songs. So, the other songs in your playlist will never get played. I would propose that this behaviour should be changed so that the temporary playlist contains all songs in the playlist (or genre/artist/album) you are searching within and that it begins playing that playlist with the selected song. Alternatively, if a person does not want this behaviour, the Miniplayer's could be made to resemble that of Alfred's file navigator. Pressing enter on a playlist would play it and pressing the right arrow key would access a list of the songs within it. The same behaviours listed here can also be applied to playing "All songs in genre" or "All songs by artist". In summary: I would propose that the complete final behaviour would be as follows. I open the Miniplayer → I begin to type "Top Songs → "Top Songs" appears in the menu → I select "Top Songs" → A list of the songs in the "Top Songs" playlist appears → I begin to type the name of a song → That song appears in the menu → I select that song → That song plays → The rest of the "Top Songs" playlist plays thereafter
  8. Hi! Almost every time I call the iTunes Miniplayer and start typing I see the following error in Console.app: 05.11.13 17:58:23,767 Alfred 2[18530]: [ERROR] AppleScript Error: { NSAppleScriptErrorAppName = iTunes; NSAppleScriptErrorBriefMessage = "Can\U2019t get container of container of current track."; NSAppleScriptErrorMessage = "iTunes got an error: Can\U2019t get container of container of current track."; NSAppleScriptErrorNumber = "-1728"; NSAppleScriptErrorRange = "NSRange: {0, 0}"; } Everything functions as it should, though - I can browse, choose songs, play them... everything's normal except for the error. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about, but I still wanted to mention it OS X 10.8.5, iTunes 11.1.2, Alfred v2.1 (218)
  9. Hi all I have a rather odd problem. When I use Alfred 2 iTunes mini-player I get the following message: https://www.dropbox.com/s/boy2l3k4d90foyr/alf_miniplayer_error.png Unable to compile script 'itunes' You really shouldn't be seeing this message! Alfred compiles and caches AppleScripts to make things faster. Something has happened which has prevented Alfred from doing this for e.g. osacompile does not exist or there is a permissions problem. Alfred will fall back to internally compiling scripts when it needs them.​ The mini-player does then work, but i feel that this is likely linked to my next issue. Multiple workflows do not work. examples from the web are: Spotify Mini Player 2.8 -> https://github.com/vdesabou/alfred-spotify-mini-player OmniFocus Task Actions -> http://markokaestner.com Command Help -> https://github.com/shawnrice/alfred2-workflow-help They all install fine and appear in the Alfred window however their execution does nothing. https://www.dropbox.com/s/z3m72qqcqucco9t/alf_spot1.png https://www.dropbox.com/s/l4b3s4xq87xrmhu/alfspot2.png I have tried all of the obvious things such as reinstalling Alfred, repairing permissions on my mac reinstalling workflows. Some workflows do work, but these do not use external files, or use bash internally e.t.c: Add to BusyCal -> http://www.ienno.de Workflow Searcher -> http://zlz.im/ I expect that this is something odd on my computer rather than a bug in Alfred but any advice or direction would be much appreciated. Are there any known conflicts e.t.c Yours hopefully Josh Alfred Version 2.0.5 (202) Runnning on OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.4 - mid 2010 macbook pro
  10. I use the mini player all day to listen to music. Because I use apples AirPlay technology, it is not possible to control the volume over the media keys on my keyboard (this only changes the volume of the inside speakers). It would be great if the mini player would get a volume control, so I don't have to open iTunes every time, to change it. I have done a quick concept how I could imagine implementing it. Cause mini player only uses the enter key to navigate, it would be simple to use the left and right arrow keys to control the volume. Either just when you have selected the volume field, or everywhere. What do you guys think about this idea?
  11. It'd be neat to be able to use the mini player to add the currently playing song to a particular playlist. I'm sure it'd be possible to create a workflow to do this, but I wouldn't know how to go about making a script filter (I intend to remedy that when I next have time ), and it seems like something that might be more appropriate as a built-in feature. Just a thought :-)
  12. Hi! I have usually activated the random mode on iTunes so, I've just realized about a bug selecting songs with the mini player. If I search a band > an album > and then select a song, iTunes plays a random song from the album I was looking for, but it's not the song I selected. As I said, this happens in iTunes' random mode. If I disable random mode, it works great.
  13. It appears that Alfred doesn't find/catalog new music. I tried playing a recently purchased an album on iTunes, but I can't navigate to it using the mini-player. I’m using Alfred v2.0.1 (173) and OSX 10.8.3 (but I couldn't do it on previous versions of OSX or Alfred as well). Below is a picture of the mini-player not finding Lindsey Stirling even though it shows her song playing.
  14. Have installed the b112 release which enables the iTunes mini player. Is there any means to control the iTunes volume within the mini player? I realise I can change my master volume via the keyboard media keys; I'm looking to be able to control iTunes volume separately.
