Installing and more information

If you’re new to iTunes Playlists to Xml, I’ve created a ‘product page’ for iTunes Playlists to Xml with all the information needed to get started.

Upgrading

To upgrade from any version of 1.4 you simply need to replace the iTunesPlaylistsToXml.exe file with the one in the above archive. You should not need to update your configuration.

To upgrade from version 1.3 or earlier, extract the contents of the zip replacing everything but the iTunesPlaylistsToXml.exe.config file; when you start the application after upgrading the configuration file should be automatically upgraded with all new settings. If you get a configuration error, then replace this file with the new version. Remember to update your name in the Settings.

Changes from version 1.4.1

Version 1.5 of iTunes Playlists to Xml adds the Compilation flag as an optional output (output as either true or false).

Along with this, you can now have the application replace the artist name, for tracks part of a compilation, with other text. This does not require the Compilation flag to be output to the Xml file. (This is a hack for a limitation with the iTunes API for Windows that doesn’t make the album artist field available.) This is set via the Settings, and will apply to all future outputs, until changed.

The Settings item has also been updated to have the application automatically connect to iTunes when it starts (versus having to manually use the Connect menu option).

Suggestions

As always, comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Special thanks to Pierre for his feedback, which has directly resulted in this new release.
