Hmm. well you have to have SysStats installed. Search for it here.

I can't close iTunes while this is open? When I do, iTunes automatically reconnects.

Same problem: iTunes can't seem to close once I have it activated. Any fix for this? It's an otherwise great docklet!!!

It's a terrific idea and the images are solid. Go to Link to download systats. If you look at the itunes.ini it appears to want to be installed in the directory above the sysstats config, images, (etc) file. I still haven't gotten this to respond to starting up itunes with the album, though.

This is one of the most rediculously awesome / useful gadgets I've ever seen. Thanks for all the work you put into it (and SysStats in general)!
Comment #9 Thursday, September 29, 2005 12:29 AM
Is there any way to make this gadget show the name of the artist playing?
For me its only the title and album that shows.
Thanks for a Great Gadget!

So I seem to have the same problem as some others, itunes will not close. It just keeps restarting, has anyone fixed this problem ? If so please share the solution.

This is perfect, no problems at all--exactly what I wanted. I'm actually shocked at how well this works (particularly from the comments stating problems). When you close iTunes, it asks if it is OK to close despite the script being used--just say yes, and it will close. This is basically the same issue with all of the iTunes remotes (whatever app). Thank you so much.

Doesn't work for me, in fact it crashed ObjectDock.
Comment #16 Saturday, December 31, 2005 1:13 PM
For me, it shows the first album art. and then goes blank for every subsequent song... anyway to fix it?
Comment #17 Wednesday, January 04, 2006 6:26 PM
Is there anything I can do to view the artwork from other people's libraries? I can view out of mine just fine, but all of my music is hosted on another computer. I use a vpn to have my music at all times, but the plugin doesn't get that artwork. Is there a way to deal with this?
Comment #18 Monday, March 06, 2006 8:03 PM
Yes. I need to update this now that SysStats is on version 2.5.10.
Comment #19 Saturday, September 23, 2006 4:15 AM
i used iTunes 5.x.x - 6.x.x and it worked so great.
Now with the new iTunes 7 this awesome controler doesn't work anymore.
Are you planning an Update for iTunes 7 or can you please describe/mail the changes I (we) have to make to fix the problem ?

Some Fixes found!
I have happy news of being able to make this docklet work correctly after some playing around.
I am running a free version of Object Dock, SysStats v 2.5.11, iTunes 7 and had previously installed the original iTunes docklet by Judge.

The problems:
-Originally iTunes docklet 2 only showed smaller version of album art (with no nav buttons or jewel case) and a 00:35/03:25 tracktime indication that did not change/refresh.
-It changed album art once or twice and then got stuck. The track info was stuck too, for something I don't even have in my iTunes library.
-When removing from dock (in the puff of smoke) it would crash ObjectDock.

The Fixes:
-I foolishly was not fallowing the sparse directions Judge left for either iTunes docklet incarnate. I made a new folder (ie: CPUtracker, iTunesdocklet, iTunesdocklet2) for each docklet to keep them organized.
---Do not make that mistake. Do make sure to add each new docklet to "...\ObjectDock\Docklets\SysStats"
-If there is a blank space for iTunes2 on your dock try going to: rightclick>configure>Overlays and then highlight each option(ie:icon, display, case, prv, play-pause) individualy to make sure that "visible" is checked in the lower left. Mine was not, and that's why I couldn't see the docklet.
-if after checking visible for everything in the overlays palet you still cannot see the docklet try single-left-clicking on the docklet itself. That was my final step to get everything to work, for some reason clicking on it made it work. I had been trying rightclick>refresh, but that didn't do anything.

I hope this helps other's get this very slick docklet working. I am very pleased with it, thanks so much Judge.
