I am looking for someone to bring an idea of mine to life which is basically just building upon many of the known add-ons to iTunes for controlling the programs operation.
The program is required to be made for both the Windows operating system (using the COM SDK etc) and OSX (Applescripts, Cocoa etc) as I will be personally using this on my Mac and Windows machines. The program will have exactly the same functionality on both systems.
I would prefer if the Windows version was programmed in C++ or Visual Basic as I personally have an understanding of these, however I am open to suggestions.
The program will have the following characteristics:
- Create, edit, sort and control playlists and libraries.
- Control and access the music libraries of multiple iPods or iPhones connected to the one computer.
- It will be minimally intrusive. (i.e. it should look and feel like it is much a part of iTunes itself)
- Alternate play of media from different ipods/iphones connected to the computer (i.e. play one song on iPod-1 and then one song on iPod-2, then one song from the computer itself etc) without moving content from the iPod or device to the computer.
The project I think is relatively straight forward in that most of the functions above have been succesfully developed and published on line [url removed, login to view] just that I have a few iPods that have different libraries of music on them and i when i plug them into my computers i want to be able to play a consolidated playlist from all devices without copying the actual files to my computer's hard drive. I am yet to find an add-on or script that has done this so far.....
There are more details of what I would like done if someone is interested in the task and thinks it can be done... I am open to discussion on many aspects including price....
