Itunes Control??
#31
No further development is planned, bug fixes will occur. I wasn't really planning on doing formal documentation as I am hoping that the use of iTunes control is very limited. It is just not an automation friendly system and we need so many "moving parts" to accomplish control that it will not be as reliable as other solutions. If you have specific questions just post them here.

The issue I guess is that with the majority of installtions I have run into, iTunes is the primary stored music source in m4 format rather than mp3 format. The most reliable iTunes drivers I have used (NuVo, Elan', Squeeze) interface directly with the iTunes XML file. SqueezeServer is one of those that is highly reliable In a squeeze implementation through CQC, there are more moving parts than with the iTunes imlementation. Squeeze is limited in that it does not interface with the existing cover art view widget. As you stated with your comment above, I was simply attempting to reduce the moving parts in the implementation.

The one suggestion I have made prior is to look into expanding the CQC Media Repository system to allow imorting of music files from hard disk or network. Also add the ability to recognize M4A files. I my case I have over 18,000 tracks and I do not wish to convert them all to MP3 or FLAC.
Thanks,
