Hi,

I wonder if there is a way to make iTunes control my squeezebox. Is there a plugin or script which make Squeezecenter follow iTunes?

I love my squeezeboxes, but I don't like the Squeezecenter user interface. It's too slow and lack functionality like drag and drop between playlists and favourites etc.

Thanks,
Svein-Helge

No, iTunes cannot control your SB. Try looking at the slimfx skin - search these forums for 'slimfx' (without quotes) and you'll find it fast enough. I agree that SC is not a good interface for making playlists, so you should consider making your playlists in another application, like iTunes. You could even use the iTunes integration.

Most of all, for general control of your SB, nothing beats the remote -- it's much better than the SC web ui.

Thanks.

That's what I suspected. However, I found a program called Moose (search for Moose in this forum) and that seem to be a better alternative. At least for now.

Yes, Moose is good -- for some reason I was thinking you were on a Mac (Moose is Windows only).
