Parsing iTunes library


In this post, I mentioned how it would be great if Apple made the API to parse the iTunes library available.  Johnathon S. wrote that he doesn't think that Apple has made this public.


I found some other solutions for this:


  1. ITMLReader is a java class that will parse the iTunes library xml file.

  2. This page mentions using xsd to parse the file into native structures.  When doing this you will have to convert the DTD to an xml schema.

  3. PHPtunest is a php script that parses the xml file and creates an html page.
