Mini Player can no longer find streams in iTunes library

Recommended Posts


The Mini Player is unable to find iTunes songs that are streams (e.g. radio stations).


Not exactly sure when this stopped working as I do not use it often, but was definitely working within the past year.


I have used <Command>-R to refresh the library and it does not change the behavior.  It is completely reproducible on every stream I have tried.


Alfred version 4.1.1 [1172]

macOS 10.15.6


This is a the File section of the Get Info window in the Music app:





Let me know if I can provide any additional information.  Thanks.

@Otter Alfred uses the Music API (which is the sole way your music content is accessible to other apps in recent versions of macOS) and this API doesn't return internet streams in the results.


However, there is a workaround available; Create a playlist for your radio stream, and Alfred will show it in the Mini Player. Make sure you press Cmd + R when the Mini Player is showing to refresh the content once you've created playlists. :)
