  1. Hi, I have a smart playlist containing only songs which are rated 5 stars. iTunes will "automatically rate" albums based on the average rating you've given the songs on it. Somehow, non-rated songs from albums with automatic ratings are creeping into this playlist. For example, if I have given a 5-star rating to song A on album X, then somehow unrated song B on album X will play. I haven't been able to reproduce this consistently, but I'm definitely not able to reproduce this when starting my playlist via iTunes -- it only happens when I start playing my playlist through Alfred. Alfred 3.4.1 860, macOS 10.12.6, iTunes Chris

  4. Overview Playlist to Folder is a workflow made as an alternative to the great application iTuneMyWalkman that stops working on Mavericks. It basically copies the songs from selected iTunes playlists to any folder (including SD Cards), optionally convert to mp3, remove diacriticals (e.g. á to a), remove hidden OSX files and creates an UTF-8 m3u playlist. Why would you use this workflow? You may ask... Well, my car multimedia system supports SD Card and some audio types as well as m3u playlists. However, altough it is a 2013 A4, it is extremely picky about what it will actually read properly. For instance, it does not read all m4a purchased from iTunes, just some (go figure). It reads diacriticals in filenames but not in a m3u playlist (go figure, again). Finally, the m3u has to be encoding in UTF-8 otherwise it will not even recognize the file at all. Until Mavericks iTuneMyWalkman was working fine but now I kind of had to make a solution for my car and I'm sure others may use it as well. Settings Although the workflow works in both my Macs I'm almost sure it may not work in all systems due the fact that the workflow calls common dialogs to select playlists, destination folder and whether it should or not convert tracks to mp3. Here is what you should see to select playlists: Anyway, settings are simple as seen below: Step 1: the workflow will show a list of iTunes playlists; select the ones you would like to export; as seen above, the workflow shows the current selection; press SHIFT key if you need a better view of the playlists; Step 2: the destination folder can be any folder, including a SD Card; in this folder the workflow will create a m3u playlist file and a subfolder with the playlist name (where the tracks will be copied); press SHIFT key if you need a better view of the destination folder name; Step 3: you have the option to convert the track to mp3 if necessary; just set Yes to enable the conversion; Step 4: start exporting with some interesting features:Since it can take several minutes to convert and copy several files to a e.g. SD Card the workflow updates the status and you can check the progression by running the workflow again (see screenshots below); just note that it is not enough to just let the Alfred 2 window showing, you have to run the workflow again; Made a mistake? No problem. The workflow was made in a way that you can Cancel the operation; just hold Command Key then hit Return key (after the current operation is done, like copying a file, the process will be canceled); to resume, run the workflow again; however, if you need a fresh start you have to manually delete the files in the destination folder If you remove or add some songs from a playlist that you already have copied the workflow will remove or add the new files and update the playlist without the need to start all over again. It's faster this way but if you face some issues try to delete and copy again. Download Beta 2 This is a first release. So far it is working fine in both my Macs and my car audio system seems to handle very well the files and playlists. However, make some tests and use this workflow with care. What's next: improved post notification new icons Download Beta 2 Now
  5. 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
  6. I've got some iTunes playlist folders with the same name as playlists. They appear as playlists in Alfred rather than folders though. Could a different icon be used for them?
  7. Maestro Tell iTunes to play a specific song in your current playlist Filter by title and author Whats the difference between Maestro and the iTunes Mini Player? Well, there is one thing the standard Alfred Mini Player is lacking... search in playlist. It happens (at least to me) very often that i want to hear a specific song in my playlist but don't want to stop listening to the playlist itself. Trivia Source code available at Maestro@Github Powered by alfred.py Alleyoop-support This workflow creates a folder ".maestro-cache" at your home directory which stores all album art of your current playlist. It will cache only once for performance reasons if you want to recache your artworks simply use the command "maestro recache" Download it here: Maestro.alfredworkflow greetings Kasoki
  8. How can I play a specific song in a specific playlist with the iTunes Mini Player? (I've got the Power Pack and bought Alfred specifically for the iTunes feature, but so far it seems to be lacking in some areas.) For instance, in Quicksilver, I can choose a playlist, then play a specific song in the playlist. I'd like to do the same in Alfred; how can I achieve that? At the moment, when I choose a playlist, the playlist will play without letting me choose a song. I know I can type in a song afterward, but it just creates a new temporary playlist for Alfred to play that one song. But I want to stay in that playlist.
  9. 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 :-)
