    iPod Support?

    I am not sure where this fits but here is my question:

    I am trying to write my own front end. How are most other front ends supporting iPods? I have a working test that utilizes iTunes SDK, but with 9000 songs on my iPod it's a bit slugish. I am just wondering if anybody has any suggestions or pointers on how to add iPod Support?

    Thanks in advance!

    Take a look at this thread. If you have iTunes SDK skills, I think you'll be able to integrate it into RR.

    I think the 9,000 song deal is what is slowing you down. iTunes isn't known for being very crisp, but that's a LOT of songs!

    The easiest way is to bypass the itunes/ipod database xml and just read the contents of the disk and their ID3 tags. If you do it this way, you also automatically support almost every other mp3 player, not just ipods.

    If you really want to do it the itunes way, libgpod may help.
