tiba21 Posted January 7, 2010 Share Posted January 7, 2010 This thread is intended to collect names of interested people in a program/script I'm creating, that will allow you to take your iTunes playlists and convert them to a Control4-compatible playlist. I also wanted to consolidate communication to a single thread for related dialog.The need to take my existing iTunes music to my new Control4 system was always a problem for me. So, I decided to develop this script to help accomplish this, as I don't always want to have my iPod docked or buy an AppleTV (and driver) to listen to my music library.Just note that this is in its beginning phases of development, so if you're interested in staying in the loop, just say so and I'll send you a link. I'm trying to keep the "beta" user group small for now as I don't know what overages this might cost me (i.e. hosting fees - bandwidth/storage space). Here's how it is currently works:1. Have your Digital Media/iTunes library linked to your Control4 Media Library. I have my MP3s on a NAS drive and have that NAS drive mapped in Control4. The MP3s will need to be scanned to add to your C4 Media Library.2. Once that is done, export your entire C4 Media (Audio) library as a XML file.3. Upload the C4 XML and iTunes Playlist XML file(s) to my online script and it will create a C4 rendition of your iTunes playlist.4. Download the C4 playlist file (will contain all of your provided iTunes playlist(s)).5. Import the new C4 Playlist XML into your C4 Media as a new playlist.NOTE: Depending on how large your playlist file is, it may take a while for your C4 Controller to complete the import. If your Composer doesn't respond, just let it sit and the playlists will pop-up when each one is complete. Mine took about 15-20 mins for a couple thousand songs with a HC300.I've decided to open up the tool for any interested members. There has been good interest and I haven't experience any negative effects from the traffic. So, please provide any feedback, as I have received very little.
