Release: iTunes 4.7 Goodies

46 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi everybody. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post it, sorry if not.

I've updated all the add-ons i made for iTunes to work with the 4.7 release...

here they are:

(Right click and Save Target As)

Multi-Plugin 0.52 for iTunes 4.7: http://members.lycos.co.uk/forum2new/iTune...52_iTunes47.exe

Fonts, Menu Hiding, and Unknown Album mods: http://members.lycos.co.uk/forum2new/iTunes/Mods.rar

For those who don't know, here are the descriptions of what all these do:

Multi-Plugin:

Skins iTunes's Titlebar (Graphics by susumu from Aqua-Soft!)

Copies the name of the current song to the clipboard

Creates a file with the current song info

Changes iTunes's window caption to "Artist - Song - iTunes" format

Minimize To Tray (it takes a LOT less memory when in tray than iTunes's own Minimize To Tray feature)

Control when iTunes will be Always-On-Top or not shown in the taskbar

Makes programs recognize iTunes as if it were Winamp

Makes ObjectBar recognize iTunes's menu (it doesn't work very well since the menus got changed in 4.7 :/)

Makes multimedia keys work when iTunes is not active (in some keyboards they work anyway, but in mine they didn't so i made this feature ;) )

Integration with EvilLyrics for finding a song's lyrics

Of course, all these are options, you don't have to use them all.

Here is a screenshot of it: (Click to see full mode)

Fonts Mod:

Replaces the font used in iTunes (Tahoma) with a font similiar to Lucida Grande.

Menu Hiding Mod:

Hides iTunes's menu. You can still access it by pressing Alt+Down or by hovering the place where the menu was.

"Unknown Album" Mod:

If you let iTunes organize your music library, you have probably noticed it organizes the files this way:

iTunes Music\Artist\Album\Track# Name.mp3

if the Album tag is missing, it will put the file in a folder called "Unknown Album" inside the Artist folder.

After applying this mod, songs that don't have an Album tag will be organized this way:

iTunes Music\Artist\Track# Name.mp3

Yea, except that you HAVE to be a member of a russian-looking forum before you can download the files.. i can't even sign up on that forum, since the language is like from another world for my eyes...

If you want, i can host them on a proper site on a 155mbps backbone without any popups or whatever..

Woah man, is that objectbar there? If so - what skin is that? It looks awesome, please do share if it is, looks alot like a mac finder bar :D.

Thanks, and this is awesome, might go back to iTunes if I can get a finder bar looking that good on windows.
