Find and Play is a simple AppleScript to use with Butler or Salling Clicker to control iTunes. All it does is search iTunes, putting the results in a playlist and telling iTunes to play that playlist.

What's New

Version 1.4.2:
  • Fixed odd behavior that occurred if the script was run while FireFox was the frontmost application.
Version 1.4:
  • Added support for Salling Clicker.
  • Added support for Growl.
  • Changed name to better describe what the script does.


iTunes 6.0 or later

You might want to zip this up with some documentation. Right now it comes down as plain text and is displayed in my browser (Camino).

Same problem in Safari.

The download is now a zip-file and documentation is included as requested. Thank you for pointing this out!

Quicksilver does this very well. Symphonic, which is a widget, also provides similar functionality.

What is the advantage of this application over going to the library and using the search box?

(they both need one mouseclick)

Good question,
I made it when I switched from LaunchBar to Butler, because I missed the convenient way of selecting music in LaunchBar.

For example if i am writing in Word and want to play some music, this is what I have to do:

With Play: hit control-space, write the name of the music and hit return

Without Play: switch to iTunes, click on the library playlist, press alt-command-f (or click in the search field), type the name of the music, click play and switch back to Word
