"iTunes sucks! Was in a listen to my own collection kinda mood BUT..."


  

          

iTunes is cutting off great songs in the middle of them playing.

Hit the shuffle button to let my phone's 10k songs just create the mood for the day. Didn't feel like streaming Tidal. But nooooooooooo... iTunes is messing up the mood.

What's the deal with this? And how do you fix the iTunes-deemed "corrupted" files?

rumor has it that they're going to kill iTunes off with the next iOS release anyway.

phone instead of the content on Tidal. I mainly stream nowadays but I did just want the vibe from the music I've got saved on my phone.

I wanted a real shuffle of all my music irrespective of genre.

Just know it went from Slum Village's "Jealousy" off of the Fantastic Vol 2 album right into Ellington's and Coltrane's "Take the Coltrane" off of their joint album. Then, it swung into Coltrane's "Naima" before bringing in "Dancewitme" by Maxwell.

Hopefully, when they kill off iTunes and spin it into three separate apps, I'm still able to listen to my own stuff. I dig Tidal when I wanna listen to albums and some of their curated playlists including the recently added Artist Radio station. I also dig it when it plays similar songs to the one I may be listening to. Don't feel like sitting around and creating my own playlists though. It would be nice if they allowed a subscriber to shuffle through all of their songs saved or downloaded in the user's collection.

player still so that I can easily listen to non-streaming tracks.
I'm not sure, but maybe you can use Google Play Music and set it to play downloaded tracks only and it'll read from your internal storage?

instead.
Def. going to be a weird transition for folks that have relied on iTunes for so many years.
These companies are making some very questionable moves with regards to how music is consumed. Google is pushing YouTube Music which is inferior to Google Play Music.

247,000+ songs, too many memories to walk away. I've tried importing to things like Spotify in the past or some other offshoot Mc alternative a handful of years ago, but either the new app doesn't pull all the metadata, corrupts the artwork, or back to Spotify I'd let it work for an entire day whenever I tried it last and it's only gotten to the Bs or Cs in artists and I just lose patience because it wasn't even looking for the producer (composer), label (grouping) and sample (comments) tags so what's the point?


I guess it helps I have a Mac and I just listen to podcasts on my phone without syncing them to iTunes and don't use the Store, so even as bloated as the library is since my iTunes never has to think about licenses or the cloud or anything it still runs shockingly smooth all things considered.

drive full of tracks that I "own".
Again...The fact that Samsung still has a pretty decent stand alone music app on their phones is one of the things that keeps me in their camp. It REALLY came in handy last month too...
I did a 10mile race and couldn't get a decent cell phone signal to stream, so I was able to just open the music app and shuffle the 20+GB of music that I keep stored on my microSD card. I was watching a TON of racers using iPhones that were clearly frustrated that they couldn't stream any music.

itunes has just become a catchall for media, and they're splitting them up into their own apps - the sky isnt falling or anything.

I for one use itunes exclusively. 33k+ songs in my library, organized into playlists, all files in the cloud and accessible from all my devices.

if they aren't, I'd find a way to delete them manually from the device (on the sync screen). Then turn syncing back on.

Worst case scenario: restore device and resync.


Are you running an iPhone... and if so, what version of iOS? On iOS11 I had some issues with songs getting the "scratches" in mid play. That was corrected in iOS12.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

OKP is a music nerd site so I know there are tons of people here that could never fully commit to Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon Music and Pandora.

We own too much ish that will never be on those apps.

I don't use the iTunes STORE, just the library feature to managed "owned" files. I stopped buying music from iTunes at many, many years ago and I only purchased files there on occassion. Thank God. My go-to for digital music purchases is Google Play and Bandcamp.

"In its place will be three media streaming apps: Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple TV. In a statement, Apple clarifies that through the Music app, users will continue to “have access to their entire music library, whether they downloaded the songs, purchased them or ripped them from a CD.” The iTunes Music store will still be available." - Pitchfork

and they're not really killing it, but splitting it 3 ways like the iPhone apps are. Syncing has moved to Finder.

Windows is still using iTunes for now.
