making podcasts shuffleable
Authored by: eugene_o on Aug 05, '07 11:25:12AM
To remove the "Skip When Shuffling" flag from all podcasts and videos I use the following short applescript:

tell application "iTunes"
	set podcast_tracks to tracks of playlist "Podcasts"
	repeat with podcast_track in podcast_tracks
		try
			set shufflable of podcast_track to true
		end try
	end repeat
	set movie_tracks to tracks of playlist "Movies"
	repeat with movie_track in movie_tracks
		try
			set shufflable of movie_track to true
		end try
	end repeat
end tell

By the way, does anybody know if it is possible to run an applescript automatically each time an iPod is plugged in?

You could use a launchd item. Make it watch /Volumes, and then when you see your iPod appear, run your de-unshuffle script.

there's a system preferences app called 'dosomethingwhen' or DSW.
it will do mounts of drives, then you just tell it what to do by script or whatever.

also for sleep and other events.
