Change volume in iTunes4 via a scroll wheel mouse Apps
Finally, the only feature from XMMS/Winamp that I've missed is present in the latest version of iTunes! To be precise, the scroll wheel on your mouse will change the volume, although only when it's "zoomed" to the smaller, non-playlist setting. Yay!

Change volume in iTunes4 via a scroll wheel mouse
Authored by: randykato on May 09, '03 10:40:43AM

Hmmm.... it is a nicer way to adjust volume, but you have to
have the cursor over the little window in order for it to work. It
would be nice if it worked whenever iTunes has focus, regardless
of mouse position.

'scuse thickness, but how do you make this work? I tried holding the mouse over all sorts of parts of the iTunes interface, and nothing seems to happen.

Now I get it :-/ The window has to be minimized for this to work (click the green traffic-light button).

The pointer must also be positioned over some part of the
minimized iTunes window.

BTW - has anyone noticed this msg in your console:[code]2003-
05-09 12:27:28.260 Finder[3555] *** _NSAutoreleaseNoPool():
Object 0x2fd1710 of class NSCarbonWindow autoreleased with no
pool in place - just leaking
2003-05-09 12:27:30.649 Finder[3555] ***
_NSAutoreleaseNoPool(): Object 0x2fc8650 of class NSEvent
autoreleased with no pool in place - just leaking[/code]

I am seeing this all the time now... it was happeing when using
the scroll wheel... pretty much anything in iTunes causes it.

[sorry for the hardwrapped lines - don't know whats up with the
forum posting mechanism, or Safari..]

Oooooooh... Carbon & Cocoa app!?
Authored by: Anonymous on May 09, '03 09:33:21PM

A reference to NSCarbonWindow would presumably indicate that
iTunes 4 is the first major hybrid Carbon & Cocoa app on the
market.

Change volume in iTunes4 via a scroll wheel mouse

For some reason (probably something I've set) with my MS
IntelliMouse Explorer, I have to push down on the scroll wheel to
make this work.

OR-

You can just use USB Overdrive or equivalent to map your scroll
wheel, or any mouse button, to give the keyboard shortcut cmd-up
arrow or cmd-down arrow for volume whenever iTunes is the
foremost app.

I just install xmms today. Although i love iTunes as an app, I was shocked that xmms has noticeably better sound. I'm not an audiophile, but there is hiss when playing mp3s on iTunes and xmms has much better overall clarity with the esound plugin. I tested using mp3s encoded by iTunes. Does anyone else agree?
