Xion Audio Player

iTunes thru Xion?

General Discussion about Xion Audio Player

Postby Astaraell » June 25th, 2008, 4:08 am

Is it possible to use Xion to control iTunes? Is it even possible to have Xion piggybacking off of iTunes, which would solve the DRM problem as well? That would defiantly increase Xions popularity, especially if Xion becomes OS X compatible.
Other question - how do you put songs in your library? Dragging and dropping dose not work, and just playing the song dosen't keep it in the library.

Then I'd have to have 2 programs running at once. I think Xion should secretly "break" iTunes as that would also increase Xion's popularity. :D

No but seriously... Xion does sort of lack in the playlist department. How about loading the iTunes database file? It shouldn't be too complex.

Xion piggybacking off iTunes? Probably not likely. I don't think any player out there can play iTunes DRM files yet, can it?

As to your other question, you currently only put playlists into the Library. You can only place files into the Playlist.

This will change with a future release when I add more features to the Library, which is currently very basic.
