Very very good! I know, it would be not an easy programming.. but: Pleeeease enhance your progy with covers read from the tags (reduced to e.g. 30 by 30 px).

By the way: IE sucks: Cant display XHTML. But:... We have Safari or Firefox and feel good about, isnt it?

would be great to export the artwork also...
i made a smart playlist with this criterium: track number is 1... so that gives me a 1 track per album export...
artwork export with that would allow to make a killer list of our albums

Thank you, thank you, thank you Jonathan Berney, for hearing our (well, my) prayers. Now those of us who use ITunes 4.0 are no longer excluded from all the goodies.

I would rate this new version (4.1.2.) as the best of them all -- free or pay -- at accomplishing what MAC forgot to do: make it fast and simple to create a printout of what's in your playlists. (For those who want text instead of HTML output, Taco editor and Tofu together make a delicious freeware plate.)

Simple, elegant, satisfying -- this is now a fully-achieved app as far as I'm concerned.

This hasn't worked for me. I've tried the normal way of converting an XML file and the Turbo way to convert. Both ways haven't gone anywhere. The program seems to just freeze. I've been patient and waited for hours, but no progress. I am running iTunes 4.6 and i'm not sure why this isn't working. Needs an update, but the program seems to be a great idea

Hi Ben. Try using a Plain Text or Unicode export. The XML option is significantly different and won't work well with my program.

PS: Vivaldi again, with a late postscript. Don't want to seem like a nutter (or peanutter) on this Itunes 4.5 issue, but others are bothered, too. Check, for instance, this website: http://technovia.typepad.com/technovia/2004/04/itunes_and_drm_.html

I could go on, but you all have Google at your disposal....

This is my second go-round here, now commenting as a user of the improved 4.1.1.

(And boy, I'm sure glad I'm not a haughty, reluctant user, the kind that makes snippy comments. And probably in halfway decent English, too. Think how insufferable it must be to read comments by one of those snippy folks.)

Since so many respondents here seem to have a Jonez about "Itunes catalog", let me try to put XHTML Playlist in perspective with it, since many users would doubtless like to know about that. For my uses, XHTML Playlist is far and away the better app. It will make a nice little HTML list that I can use on its own or convert to text. It will (theoretically, if that isn't too big a word for some folk) make the list using all possible combinations of fields in the order the user desires.

Only one problem ... you need Itunes 4.5 to make it work. Perhaps I'm not the only person to stick with 4.1, since later versions have some problems. (Check contributions to this site from others.) For us stick-in-the-mud types, only the most basic three categories will come out in the HTML file.

The developer states this in his remarks, and has told me about it privately. It's his choice, of course, but I think it limits the versatility of the program. To date, it's the only bad feature in it.

The really good feature: it's free, and efficient. If you try out Itunes catalog you may find that it's too much horsepower. I don't need, for instance to use Rolling Stone lists, or publish lists on Imac. For me, it's an elephant gun to dissect a flea. (It also overlooks some important categories, such as disk number, that I use frequently.)

You get what you pay for, and Itunes catalog will satisfy the power user; for the little stay-at-home librarian like me, small and free is just right.

So I would like to encourage Mr. Berney to continue developing his app, but also to think about a workaround that might include the rest of us "conservative" (not a bad word, I hope) users who stick with an earlier Itunes version. And I thank him again for offering an otherwise excellent program.

Now I am going to return to my seat in the peanut gallery.

iTunes 4.6 doesn’t have problems, the real problem is that most people imagine that new software has problems... 4.1 was new at some point also.

PS- making fun of "broken" English seems in poor form especially when your own writing is riddled with comma splices and sentences like, "If you try out iTunes catalog you may find that it's too much horsepower."

People learning English are apt to make mistakes, and that isn't bad seeing as people who speak the language screw it up all the time. Don't pick on people for it.

When I used this program, it always froze when around 18-20% of my library was converted. The end result is this: http://eclipsearikado.googlepages.com/Library.html
Anyone know why it isn't functioning properly?
