Publish iTunes 4.5 library and playlists to the web Apps
I just had one of those Eureka moments. Instead of futzing around with iTunes and Excel to make music lists, I just need to use the new iTunes 4.5. I don't know how Apple does it, but it just keeps getting better. Of course this solution works only on Mac OS X 10.3 Panther and up, but that's just peachy for me. If you want to print your library out and post it on a webpage or email for others to peruse, do the following in iTunes 4.5:
  1. Select Library from the Source menu on the left side (or any playlist, of course).
  2. Go File -> Print (or Command-P)
  3. Select Song Listing and change the drop down menu to customize to your liking.
  4. Click Print and in the resulting Print dialog, press the Save as PDF button.
  5. Use Preview to check out the resulting file to ensure its all kosher.
You can see the results of my efforts right here. To view the PDF in your browser, you'll need to have the PDF Plugin 2.01 (Mac OS X) or Acrobat 5.x (Windows) installed. The PDFs are searchable, too (using Preview or Acrobat).

[robg adds: If you haven't played with the new CD labeling feature yet, you should -- it's a great timesaver, and has some relatively nice options. I particularly like the mosaic covers.]

The free Pod2Go does a great job of exporting your iPod's contents to an HTML file. Takes it less than a second with the 2K tunes on my 20GB iPod. Great program.

Now if only Apple would get on the ball and provide this type of printing functionality for the Finder.

If you're like me, you won't find anything useful in this hint. It requires you to download the file. I would rather have an HTML version, thank you.

mproud - Install the PDF plugin and view it from the browser. You don't need to download the file.

And I forgot you can print right to PDF in Jaguar. (Has it been that long?)
