iTunesFS

1.3.6
30 September 2016

Copy iTunes playlists to external media.

Overview

iTunesFS allows you to mount the "iTunes Music Library.xml" file and all your iPods as a file system, using the excellent OSXFUSE.

All playlists are exposed as directories, with their respective entries. Order of tracks within the playlists is maintained by prefixing the tracks with their playlist index.

What's new in iTunesFS

Version 1.3.6:
  • README-OSX.md: typos and formatting fixed
  • README-GNUstep.md, README-OSX.md, README.md, iTunesFS.xcodeproj/project.pbxproj: Improved documentation
  • iTunesFS.xcodeproj/xcshareddata/xcschemes/Release.xcscheme: Added public build schemes
  • iTunesLibrary.m: deprecations properly addressed
  • xcconfig/base.xcconfig, xcconfig/debug.xcconfig, xcconfig/release.xcconfig: Xcode project changed to use xcconfig files in order to make it easier to modify the project settings (which are now a bit more complicated). In order to properly support macFUSE 3.x we need to use the x86_64 runtime.

"Thanks" to Macupdate going towards the worst of search methods, I had to reach this application again by typing ipodview and browsing to other software suggested... I miss the 2005 version of this website. So much. PS: I am a daily user of MU.

I tried multiple browsers, clearing cache, etc… No dice. Finally had to download it from CNET as they cache it vs. direct links to the Dev. Oh well… MU is still my favorite site! P.S. Dev. site loads fine on my iPhone on same WiFi network that Mac on 10.8 using Safari 6 and Firefox 14.0.1 can't load!?

I was thinking... Description on top is kind of misleading. Is OSXFUSE required for 1.3 to work? Is MacFUSE incompatible with 1.3? Thanks...

To possibly answer Voreball - I uninstalled MacFuse and installed OSXFuse and now all works well. I assume that was the trick. (if you install osxfuse also select for the install MacFuse compatibility and you won't have to separately uninstall MacFuse.)

David, thanks for your tip! - Following your possible answer, I installed OSXFuse 2.5.0 (with MacFuse compatibility layer on install, which indeed removes the old MacFuse) and then iTunesFS 1.3.2. Success! /!\ I also have to add this: DON'T FOLLOW the description on top and DON'T INSTALL any MacFuse along with iTunesFS 1.3.2: this combo DOESN'T WORK. Can somebody please update the incorrect requirements above? Still on 2x3.2 Quad Xeon, 10.6.5

Two problems: 1. Unable to download the program from any links here or practically anywhere else, as links typically come up "denied" or "unable to find server." Eventually found a copy at Brothersoft. 2. Builds directories and stores files as per the tags/iTunes. In my collection this easily becomes messy, as a very large number of "artists" are unique (and I add files constantly in batches by their catalog number). Keeping original filenames in a single directory is much preferable. If something in the file scheme causes a duplicate name, simply adding a number to the end, like the Apple file system does, will work. 3. Seemed to work quite well until the failing iPod gave an I/O error, and then it just blew through all the remaining titles in a minute, copying blank folders and files to the destination directory. This last needs to be corrected no matter what the source of error, as it makes the backup look valid, until you look at the file sizes. This is even more important when dealing with a failing iPod!

It works in my Snow Leopard 10.6.2. Make sure you have MacFuse (most recent version as required). It's a great piece of software which makes life easy between iTunes and external world.

I emailed the developer because I had an small issue with iTunesFS, and even though I am the only one experiencing this issue the developer send me an updated version that totally addressed this issue. How about that for support on a free app! iTunes FS mounts your iTunes library and any attached iPod as a volume in Finder, and that's all there is to say because it works flawlessly. Don't expect a fancy GUI, because you simply don't need it! This app is a computer lifesaver to me, and I would suggest to the developer to make iTunesFS donation-ware and implement this the same friendly way as Carbon Copy Cloner does for instance. iTunesFS is the choice over a lot of commercial apps for backing up iPod and iTunes content. Recommended!
