iTunesFS

Version: 1.1.13 || Release Date: 2010-09-22 || License: Freeware Developer: Marcus Mueller | App Owner: factoryjoe

iTunesFS allows you to mount the "iTunes Music Library.xml" file as a file system, using the excellent MacFUSE (http://code.google.com/p/macfuse/). All playlists are exposed as directories, with their respective entries. Order of tracks within the playlists is maintained by prefixing the tracks with their playlist index.

delt23, iTunes FS takes it further by mounting the entire iTunes library as a volume of its own, even containing your playlists. This is much more flexible than the simple drag copies that iTunes itself allows.

Cool app. Only minor quibble is that in iTunes playlists are hierarchical, whereas here they all get lumped together. Except for being an annoyance I suspect it could lead to problems if you have different playlists with the same name (e.g. "Top rated/Björk" and "Latest/Björk" which would all be lumped into the same folder).

Delt23, not from an iPod you can't. Pretty clever anyway.

I went to the homepage and I'm confused? I can drag and drop songs from a playlist to whatever finder folder I want? Why would this be necessary then?
