Win 7 + iTunes - cannot import to Playlist or AutoDJ

Postby torata » Sat Aug 25, 2018 11:30 pm

Sorry, but possible bug report

Mixxx 2.1.1 (x64) and 2.1.3 (x64) on win 7 x64
cannot import from iTunes playlist into Playlist, Crates or AutoDJ

The following do not work
- select all tracks in iTunes playlist and right click add to Playlist, AutoDJ or Crate does not do anything or imports only 1 (random) track
- rightclick on iTunes playlist name and import does not do anything
- multiple drag and drop from iTunes playlist to playlist only imports a few of those selected

These all worked on 2.0 (x64)

Additional:
Seems to apply to Win 10 x64 also (tested on 2.1.3 only)

Possibly similar to this reported bug?

Hello.

Correct, in version 2.1, changes were made in how crates and autodj worked, coupled with other changes in how the track information was accessed when selected. This all affected features that are less frequently used, like iTunes.

Indeed, that was reported in that post that you found, and it was supposed to be fixed after the corrections that were made.

Thank you for the clarification, JosepMa

Should I take this forward to raise it as a bug?

Many thanks

Yes. I cannot verify since i don't use iTunes, but your description seems easy to reproduce.

Was there ever any resolution? I have Windows 10 and I am having the same issue.

Thanks!
