iTunes plugin in XBMC for Windows? - Kaistar - 2008-09-21 18:49
I've been googling and I've not found an answer to this question yet. I'm trying to move my itunes library into XBMC and it's not working up till now...
What i've found from the Mac forums is the DAAP method but it's not working for me either...

XBMC doesn't support the new iTunes DAAP (which isn't actually DAAP). There are itunes plugins, to allow you to view your itunes db in XBMC, but for the time being they are only for OSX. Your best bet is to just scan your music into our DB, if it's going to take awhile, do it overnight.

The itunes plugin (available on xbmc-addons googlecode svn) will work on windows, but you'll need to manually alter the path to the itunes xml file.

Thanks for the super-duper good news lol. However, I'm not really sure what you mean by "Available on xbmc-addons googlecode svn". I've searched through XBMC scripts and couldn't find iTunes plugin so... Would you mind giving more pointers please?

Use google to search for "xbmc-addons svn" yeilds:

Wow you guys are definitely efficient =)
I got the file, unzipped and copied it into the appropriate folder but I'm unsure how I'm supposed to "point it" to my iTunes xml. I've opened a few of the files in notepad but they turned out in gibberish.
Is it supposed to be done in XBMC? I can't figure it out there either...

Look for this line in default.py:

I have a question, I have a buncha Music Videos I've downloaded off iTunes, is there any hope I can get these to play in XBMC? I don't have any iTunes music content, I installed this plugin and it seems to only import the music library. I'm guessing I'm out of luck when it comes to video content, but I thought I'd ask before I just gave up.

Guys, thanks for the wonderful assistance =)
Sadly the plugin doesn't show at all in XBMC. Gahhh. To quote Peter Griffin's iPod commercial, "I Just Don't Get It" lol.
My plugin is saved here "C:\Program Files\XBMC\plugins\music" is it correct?

You need to "Add Source" and then choose the plugin.
