[ANSWERED]: Start iTunes?


If I understand correctly, iTunes needs to be running to use this plugin. Is it possible to use the plugin even if iTunes is NOT running (i.e., it will first start the program, then execute the trigger)?

Best regards

Hi Mark,

The plugin won't do it, but you can use this AppleScript line to launch it:

Code: Select all
launch application "iTunes"

And if the copy of iTunes you want to launch is on a different computer than the one running Indigo, this Apple script should work..

set theRemoteMac to "eppc://username:passowrd@computer-name.local"
tell application "Finder" of machine theRemoteMac
open ("/Applications/iTunes.app" as POSIX file as alias)
end tell

Just change username, password and computer name as needed....
