Anyone have a iTunes playlist browser already created?
You are trying to queue up the entire Music category on the player at once? That's I'm sure the problem. The players probably have a limit on the size of the list they'll queue up at once.

In the end, the better way to deal with this kind of thing would be to allow the players to just randomly get selects from a given category, so that they don't end up with a huge and unwieldy list to manage. That's something that has been discussed a number of times, but hasn't been done yet.

I can increase the list size maximum, and make it so that it gracefully just stops loading once it's max size is reached. But I don't wan tto just allow someone queue up a 10K list. It would be grossly innefficient.

Yeh, I checked the standard playlist manager, which our player (and as of the most recent beta, the other players) uses to manage the list of queued items and it was set to 2048, so you are slightly over the top. I'll up it to 8192 for the next beta drop, and make it not fall over if the list is larger than that, it'll just stop queuing them.

Since upgrading my system to the new Tray Monitor for iTunes my macro is not working to show my playlists. Now it shows All Music instead of the playlists I have in iTunes. I have to scroll through the genres to PlayLists to see them but the code below was used on the OnLoad of the template to view the PlayLists when I open the template. CQC ver 4.2.907 and using driver iTunes Repository via Tray Monitor ver 1.0. Also does iTunes always have to be open now?

If MacroEng::RunMacro
P2=iTunes Playlists Music LVar:Cookie

P1=By Title


Did the spelling of the genre change by any chance? Maybe it's PlayLists with a big L now instead of small L? That's something that could have slipped through without getting caught.

Yeh, it looks like it happened because it was now standardized as a normal CQC renderer fully, and the standard spelling used by all of the is PlayLists, so just change the little L to big and it should be ok.

Sorry about that.

Yes that was the problem. I changed to the capital L in PlayLists and it works fine now. Thanks.
