  • Question about new IPOD plugin in 5.5

    It was not mentioned in the update release but I see under Music you can select your IPOD. This is freakn AWESOME!

    My question is:

    Is the "Selete Artist" and "Select Album" suppose to work under this? Would it be hard to add a "View Playlist" to this feature?

    Great update btw.... thanks again!!

    I just installed the update and saw the IPOD option. Very nice.

    Three questions about it.
    1. iTunes need to be installed?
    2. Since iTunes can have a library of music on the hard drive, will this iPod option have access to the same library, or just an ipod itself?
    3. Album art? iTunes like to embed this in the MP3 and from what I understand SD does not work with this (external JPG are fine with SD mind you. Any info on this?

      I know itunes has to be installed. It actaully opens up and runs as a full program behind SD when you use it.

          I tried it last night... what I got was a straight file list of all the songs on my iPod.. no Album sorting, no Artist sorting, etc.
          No album art either (expected this).

          Its a start... just need to find a way now to catagorize things.

                Just wondering if categorization of Ipod music has been figured out yet. I just got Streetdeck yesterday and plugged in my Ipod and came up with a list of like 4000 songs to scroll through :-/ hard to pick the one you're looking for while you're driving heh
