10.4: Improve the speed of the iTunes Dashboard widget
Authored by: MCDr on Jul 07, '05 11:40:37AM

Does this also fix the cpu load? On my Dual G5 2.5 GHz with 2GB RAM the iTunes widget uses more than 5% cpu constantly! Thats why i dont use it..

Thats why I use SizzlingKeys instead.

Think the CPU load is the same. I'm running on an iBook G4 1.33GHz and 256mb of ram and the itunes widget uses around 8%, even now.

That's odd... most of my widgets including iTunes drop to zero CPU use when I exit the dashboard. Wonder why yours are acting up like that.

oops, just noticed that I can no longer pause with the modified version of the widget. Hitting the pause button restarts the playlist from the top.

Strange... My pause works perfectly.
