itunes mini player plays only the last song of a playlist?

Recommended Posts

Hi

here is my problem.

 

I open Itunes mini player and I navigate to my playlist section

I open for example the playlist "recently added"

I don't see all my songs that are into the playlist but It starts playing the last song that I added

and It's the same for all the playlists

 

Is this the right behavior or am I missing something?

 

I want to scroll down my playlist's songs and then choose a song to start with

Is it possible?

Hi there, Sorry for the slower-than-usual reply :) 

 

iTunes provides limited access to playlists so Alfred can start a playlist, but you won't be able to browse through the playlist to pick a song.

 

However, in normal conditions, it should start the playlist from the beginning (first song). Do you have "shuffle" switched on? If so, you'll need to turn it off manually first so that Alfred can start your playlist from the beginning. Since iTunes 11, Apple removed/broke the AppleScript that allows third-party apps like Alfred to switch "shuffle" on and off.

 

After this, if you still have issues playing your playlist normally, could you please check that Alfred is looking at the correct iTunes library? You can compare these two paths:

In Alfred: In preferences, under Features > iTunes > Advanced

In iTunes: In preferences, under Advanced

 

These should match, confirming that Alfred is looking at the correct library.

 

Let me know how you get on :)

 

Cheers,

Vero

Any chance to have this in the future?

It's down to Apple what can or can't be accessed through AppleScript in apps like iTunes, so we're keeping an eye on any new developments from Apple.
