I have been getting bored with the music selection that I have on my iPod. Since my laptop only has a subset of our total music collection, the iPod only has music from this set.
I wanted to make sure that the iTunes Library on my laptop had access to all of the music on the Mac mini, so I wrote the following script. What it does is:
- Iterates through the iTunes library on the Mac mini
- For each track that is a MP3 of unprotected AAC file, checks with the local iTunes to see if a track with the same title, artist, and album exists
- If no track exists, it adds a link to the remote file mounted via afp.
This script is not is not optimized, but it works. And I am only planning on letting it run once.
