iTube Widget... I love the album the art feature in iTunes, but it would be cooler if you see the music video to the song you are listening to. Well now you can!

YouTube has stacks and stacks of music videos on their website. I have written an OS X widget called iTube. iTube gets the artist and title of the song you are playing in iTunes. It then performs a search on youtube and plays the first hit in the widget window. Once installed iTube works by itself in the background, so start a song up iTunes then check your dashboard and with a little luck you'll be watching what you are

Very good idea but it needs some more work to do the job nicely.

Slow in response and the syncing is awful.

I will check this is for future release though.

Run away unresponsive osascript processes. Can't turn off the autosearch pref because the checkbox is greyed out. Messing up stability of other apps. In the trash it goes! Too bad - nice idea.

On an aside, syncing needs work. Wonder if the syncing could utilize audio PUID IDs ala many audio tagging apps? Could be more accurate than timecode.

Good idea. However very slow to play the video (tested it out on Anouk's Sacrifice and the video finally came up at the end of the song and then so slow it was unwatchable). The widget hogs CPU & memory so that the entire system becomes sluggish & unresponsive.
I reckon it'll be worth using after some more work.
