request: start itunes genius from current track

Recommended Posts

Noone? Is there no way to get a workflow that automatically creates a genius list in itunes 11 from the currently playing song?

Here is a script: http://bensapplescripts.blogspot.com/2012/05/generate-genius-playlist.html but it seems to be written for iTunes 10 - it doesn't work for me.   Same with this one: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/56522/launch-genius-via-applescript?rq=1

 

The main obstacle is that Genius functionality isn't directly scriptable in Applescript, so it needs to be done with UI scripting, which breaks easily, depends upon the iTunes view, etc.  I have never seen a UI script that uses the new (>) buttons next to tracks, which may not even be Applescriptable, and which are the only way I see to get to Genius functionality in iTunes 11.

 

Once you have a working script, hooking it into Alfred is easy.

dfay is right, this script was written for iTunes 10, and doesn't work anymore with iTunes 11...

 

I wish someone could find a new way to generate genius playlist. Or Apple to make it AppleScriptable.
