iTunesMouseRemote turns your shiny three-button mouse into a remote control for iTunes. You can activate it by selecting the "iTunesMouseRemote" option from the script menu in iTunes, and press Esc to deactivate it. Basically, it makes your scroll wheel a play/pause button and volume knob, and your left and right buttons into next/previous track buttons. It's somewhat of a proof-of-concept at this point. If you find it useful (I do, especially with a bluetooth mouse), please leave feedback.

Requirements

iTunes 4 or later, Mac OS X 10.3 or later (may work on earlier versions of each but is untested)

in the first sight, the remote mouse is a usefull app.
But it's a great pity that the play/pause funktion only can work if the scroll-button has no more expose-function assigned.(Assign "Button 3)
In my case there was "Desktop"assigned, when i clicked, the expose worked and not the iTunes-mouse remote.

Works perfectly (All three buttons) with my Logitech MX 900 bluetooth mouse. I can control iTunes, playing through my stereo via Airport Express, from another room -- which is something I've wished I could do ever since I set the system up. I had considered Griffin's recently announced $40 AirClick USB remote, but decided it really wasn't worth the cost for me. This provided the same functions, without additional equipment to keep track of. It's so simple and obvious -- and nobody has thought of (or made it work?) before. This is genius.

Works as said except pause play with the scroll wheel... using usb overdrive though so not sure if that's the problem. Great idea though!

works perfectly except for the scroll wheel play-pause. When clicking the scroll wheel, nothing happens. And would it be possible to impliment scrubbing by holding down the right/left buttons? Otherwise, ingenious program. I love it!!
