Control iTunes using Magic Mouse gestures
Authored by: Andrew J Freyer on Dec 23, '10 08:18:55AM
BetterTouchTool is possibly the most useful tool on my mac. It has dozens of incredibly useful features including iTunes media controls: play, pause, next, previous. The only one it does not currently offer is control of iTunes volume.

It's shouldn't be necessary to use SizzlingKeys except to control iTunes volume. Screenshot: http://img824.imageshack.us/i/screenshot20101223at814.png

"It's shouldn't be necessary to use SizzlingKeys except to control iTunes volume"

Even volume adjustment is pretty easy to do for free with AppleScript, though it's not a one-line script like "playpause" or "next track"

One can find the relevant scripts in 30 seconds with a Google search...

And yet your screenshot shows volume control within your green box!

"And yet your screenshot shows volume control within your green box!"

So, to sum up, this 'hint' offers a way to do things with BTT via a paid third-party app that BTT can do all by itself.

Worst. Hint. Ever.

Pretty sure what the screenshot is showing is the system volume, not the iTunes volume. iTunes has its own volume control, which is useful if you want to turn down your music while, say, taking a SIP call.
