iTunes is a digital media player application, introduced by Apple Inc. on January 9, 2001,[2] at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco.[3] The application is used for playing and organizing digital music and video files. The program is also an interface to manage the contents on Apple's popular iPod digital media players as well as the iPhone. Additionally, iTunes can connect to the iTunes Store via the Internet to purchase and download music, music videos, television shows, iPod games, audiobooks, various podcasts, feature length films and Movie Rentals (available only in the USA, UK and Canada), and Ringtones (available only in the USA).

History

For more details on this topic, see iTunes version history.

The software that was the basis for iTunes was developed by Jeff Robbin and Bill Kincaid as a media player called SoundJam MP,[5] and released by Casady & Greene in 1999. It was purchased by Apple in 2000, given a new user interface and the ability to burn CDs, had its recording feature and skin support removed, and released as iTunes in January 2001.[6] Originally a Mac OS 9-only application, Mac OS X support was added with the release of version 2 nine months later,[7] and Mac OS 9 support was dropped with the release of version 3.[8] In October 2003, with the release of iTunes 4.1, Apple added support for Microsoft's Windows 2000 and Windows XP. iTunes 7.1, introduced in March 2007[9] added support for Windows Vista, and 7.4 marked the end of Windows 2000 support. iTunes lacked support for 64-bit versions of Windows until the 7.6 update on January 16, 2008. iTunes currently fully works and is supported under any 64-bit version of Windows Vista, but not the 64-bit versions of Windows XP or Windows Server 2003; though not supported by Apple a workaround has been discovered for both operating systems.[10] The version history of iTunes spans from 2001 to present and covers the applications evolution and refinement from a simple music player to a control center for many types of media. ...

Features

iTunes is an application that allows the user to manage audio and video on a personal computer. iTunes is required to manage the audio of an Apple iPod portable audio player. Users can organize their music into playlists within one or more libraries, edit file information, record Compact Discs, copy files to a digital audio player, purchase music and videos through its built-in music store, download free podcasts, back up songs onto a CD or DVD, run a visualizer to display graphical effects in time to the music, and encode music into a number of different audio formats. There is also a large selection of free internet radio stations to listen to. iPod is a brand of portable media players designed and marketed by Apple Inc. ... In its most general form, a playlist is simply a list of songs. ... CD redirects here. ... Apple iPod nano (third-generation), a best-selling flash-based player An embedded hard drive-based player (Creative ZEN Vision:M) An MP3 CD player (Philips Expanium) More commonly referred to as an MP3 player, a digital audio player (DAP) is a portable consumer electronics device that stores, organizes and...

DVD (also known as Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc - see Etymology) is a popular optical disc storage media format. ...


Media management

iTunes keeps track of songs by creating a virtual library, allowing users to access and edit a song's attributes. These attributes, known as metadata, are stored in two separate library files. Metadata is data about data. ...


The first is a binary file called iTunes Library and it uses a proprietary file format. It caches information like artist and genre from the audio format's tag capabilities (the ID3 tag, for example) and stores iTunes-specific information like play count and rating. iTunes typically reads library data only from this file. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


The second file, iTunes Music Library.xml, is refreshed whenever information in iTunes is changed. It uses an XML format, allowing developers to easily write applications that can access the library information (including play count, last played date, and rating, which are not standard fields in the ID3v2.3 format). Apple's own iDVD, iMovie, and iPhoto, and Freshly Squeezed Software's Rock Star[11] are examples of applications that access the library. The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a general-purpose markup language. ... iDVD is a DVD creation software application made by Apple Computer for Mac OS X. iDVD allows the user to add QuickTime Movies, MP3 music, and digital photos to a DVD that can then be played on a commercial DVD player. ... iMovie is a video editing software application which allows users to edit their own home movies. ... iPhoto is a software application made by Apple Inc. ...


If the first file is corrupted, iTunes will attempt to reconstruct it from the XML file. Detailed third-party instructions regarding this are documented elsewhere.[12]


For MP3 files, iTunes writes tags in Unicode ID3v2.2 by default, but converting them to ID3v2.3 and ID3v2.4 is possible via its "Advanced" > "Convert ID3 Tags" toolbar menu. If both ID3v2.x and ID3v1.x tags are in a file, iTunes ignores the ID3v1.x tags. For other uses, see MP3 (disambiguation). ... The Unicode Standard, Version 5. ...


AAC and Apple Lossless files support Unicode metadata, stored in the MP4 container as so-called "Atoms". With a required QuickTime plugin, iTunes can play Vorbis or OGG enclosed FLAC (standard FLAC is not playable), furthermore the support is limited with no tag editing or album art. Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) is a standardized, lossy compression and encoding scheme for digital audio. ... Apple Lossless (also known as Apple Lossless Encoder, ALE, or Apple Lossless Audio Codec, ALAC) is an audio codec developed by Apple Inc. ... MP4 can refer to: MPEG-4 Part 14 file format Møller-Plesset perturbation theory of the fourth order This is a disambiguation page — a navigational aid which lists pages that might otherwise share the same title. ... Vorbis is an open source, lossy audio codec project headed by the Xiph. ... FLAC, an acronym for Free Lossless Audio Codec, is a popular file format for audio data compression. ...


iTunes supports ripping from CDs, but not from DVDs. As with any digital music management, users must use an analog-to-digital converter to import analog recordings (such as audio cassettes) to their iTunes libraries. Ripping is the process of copying the audio and/or video data from one media form, such as Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) or Compact Disc (CD), to a hard disk. ... CD redirects here. ... For the meaning of cassette in genetics, see cassette (genetics). ...


Library views

iTunes users may choose to view their music and video libraries in one of three ways: as a list, as a list with accompanying album artwork, or as a side-scrolling catalog of album artwork, which bears the marketing name Cover Flow. Cover Flow is a three-dimensional graphical user interface for visually rummaging through ones digital music libraries via cover artwork. ...


The standard list view displays library files with many optional detail fields, including name, artist, album, genre, user rating, play count, and so forth. Item backgrounds alternate between white and a light blue-gray for readability.


The list with accompanying album artwork is much the same, only the list is broken up by albums, with the artwork as a header to the list. Although this allows users to browse content more visually, sorting the list view by name will accordingly break up the library into redundant instances of each album. Accordingly, as with Cover Flow view, the second view mode is most appropriate for users who sort their libraries by album.


Cover Flow displays all of the user's album art as CD covers in a slide show format. It sorts the albums into artist, genre, etc. Compilation albums are only shown as a single album cover if the compilation tag for each of the album's tracks is turned on. If the song(s) from the album were imported from a 'mix' CD, the album artwork will be displayed as a default music note pictures.


iTunes also sorts with secondary parameters, album by artist and album by year, to make its artwork-centered interfaces more intuitive.


Library sharing

iTunes Library can be shared over a local network using the closed, proprietary Digital Audio Access Protocol (DAAP), created by Apple for this purpose. DAAP relies on the Bonjour network service discovery framework, Apple's implementation of the Zeroconf open network standard. Apple has not made the DAAP specification available to the general public, only to third-party licensees such as Roku. However, the protocol has been reverse-engineered and is now used to stream playlists from non-Apple software (mainly on the Linux platform).[13] The Digital Audio Access Protocol (DAAP) is the protocol introduced by Apple in its iTunes software to share media across a local network. ... Bonjour, formerly Rendezvous, is Apples trade name for its implementation of the IETF Zeroconf protocol, a computer network technology used in Apples Mac OS X from version 10. ... Zeroconf or Zero Configuration Networking is a set of techniques that automatically create a usable IP network without configuration or special servers. ... Roku, founded in 2002, is a Palo Alto based consumer electronics firm which specialises in home digital media products. ... Reverse engineering (RE) is the process of taking something (a device, an electrical component, a software program, etc. ... This article is about operating systems that use the Linux kernel. ...


DAAP allows shared lists of songs within the same subnet to be automatically detected. When a song is shared, iTunes can stream the song but won't save it on the local hard drive, in order to prevent unauthorized copying. Songs in Protected AAC format can also be accessed but authentication is required. A maximum of five users may connect to a single user every 24 hours. A graphic representation of relationships and source of the various variables representing a chunk of C subnets In computer networks, a subnetwork or subnet is a range of logical addresses within the address space that is assigned to an organization. ... FairPlay is a digital rights management (DRM) technology created by Apple Inc. ...


Library sharing was first introduced with iTunes 4.0, where users could freely access shared music anywhere over the Internet, in addition to one's own subnet, by specifying IP addresses of remote shared song libraries. Apple quickly removed this feature with version 4.0.1, claiming that users were violating the End User License Agreement. An IP address (or Internet Protocol address) is a unique address that certain electronic devices use in order to identify and communicate with each other on a computer network utilizing the Internet Protocol standard (IP)—in simpler terms, a computer address. ... A software license is a type of proprietary or gratiuitious license as well as a memorandum of contract between a producer and a user of computer software — sometimes called an End User License Agreement (EULA) — that specifies the perimeters of the permission granted by the owner to the user. ...


With the release of iTunes 7.0, Apple changed their implementation of DAAP. This change prevents any third-party client, such as a computer running Linux, a modified Xbox, or any computer without iTunes installed, from connecting to a remote iTunes repository. iTunes will still connect as a client to other iTunes servers and to third-party servers.[14] For the Xboxs successor, see Xbox 360. ...


File format support

iTunes 7 can currently read, write, and convert between MP3, AIFF, WAV, MPEG-4, AAC, and Apple Lossless. For other uses, see MP3 (disambiguation). ... Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) is an audio file format standard used for storing sound data on personal computers. ...

Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) is a standardized, lossy compression and encoding scheme for digital audio. ... Apple Lossless (also known as Apple Lossless Encoder, ALE, or Apple Lossless Audio Codec, ALAC) is an audio codec developed by Apple Inc. ...


iTunes can also play any audio files that QuickTime can play (as well as some video formats), including Protected AAC files from the iTunes Store and Audible.com audio books. There is limited support for Ogg and FLAC enclosed in an Ogg container (FLAC files are not playable) or Speex codecs with the Xiph QuickTime Components - because tag editing and album art is done within iTunes and not Quicktime, these features will not work with these quicktime components. iTunes currently will not play back HE-AAC/aacPlus audio streams correctly. HE-AAC/aacPlus format files will play back as 22 kHz AAC files (effectively having no high end over 11 kHz). HE-AAC streaming audio (which a number of Internet Radio stations use) will not play back at all. The latest version of iTunes (Win/Mac) supports importing audio CDs, when referring to iTunes standard file format AAC, users can choose to import their CDs in either 128 kbit/s, which used to be the standard importing option or 256 kbit/s. Of course, the 256 kbit/s feature only applies to AAC format. QuickTime is a multimedia framework developed by Apple Inc. ...

The Windows version of iTunes can automatically convert DRM-free WMA (including version 9) files to other audio formats, but it does not support direct playback or encoding of DRM protected WMA files. Telestream, Inc. provides free codecs for Mac users of QuickTime to enable playback of unprotected Windows Media files. These codecs are recommended by Microsoft.[15] Windows Media Audio (WMA) is an audio data compression technology developed by Microsoft. ...


File metadata

iTunes uses the Gracenote interactive audio CD database to provide track name listings for audio CDs. The service can be set to activate when a CD is inserted into the computer and an Internet connection is available. Track names for albums imported to iTunes while not connected to the Internet can be obtained later when connected, by a manual procedure. For any album loaded into iTunes for which there is not an existing Gracenote track listing, the user can choose to submit track name data to Gracenote. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


Sound processing

iTunes includes sound processing features, such as equalization, "sound enhancement" ("sound improvement" in some languages) and crossfade. There is also a feature called "Sound Check" which automatically adjusts the playback volume of all songs to the same level. Like "sound enhancement", this can be turned on in the 'Playback' section of iTunes' preferences. For information about Canadas fiscal transfer system, see Equalization payments. ...


Video support

On May 9, 2005, video support was introduced to iTunes with the release of iTunes 4.8. Users can drag and drop movie clips from the computer into the iTunes Library for cataloging and organization. They can be viewed in a small frame in the main iTunes display, in a separate window, or fullscreen. Before version 7 provided separate libraries for media types, videos were only distinguished from audio in the Library by a small icon resembling a TV screen and grouped with music in the library, organized by the same musical categories (such as "album" and "composer"). is the 129th day of the year (130th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On October 12, 2005, Apple introduced iTunes 6.0, which added support for purchasing and viewing of video content from the iTunes Music Store. The iTunes Music Store initially offered a selection of several thousand Music Videos and five TV shows including most notably the ABC network's Lost and Desperate Housewives. Disney Channel's shows were also offered (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and That's So Raven) 24 hours after airing as well as episode packs from past seasons; since that time, the collection has expanded with content from numerous television networks. The iTunes Music Store also gives the ability to view Apple's large collection of movie trailers. is the 285th day of the year (286th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Originally, movies and TV shows were only available to U.S. customers, with the only video content available to non-U.S. customers being music videos and Pixar's short films. This is in process of being extended to other countries as licensing issues are resolved.


Video content available from the store used to be encoded as 540 kbit/s Protected MPEG-4 video (H.264) with an approximately 128 kbit/s AAC audio track. Many videos and video podcasts currently require the latest version of QuickTime, QuickTime 7, which is incompatible with older versions of Mac OS (only v10.3.9 and later are supported). On September 12, 2006, the resolution of video content sold on the iTunes Store was increased from 320x240 (QVGA) to 640x480 (VGA). The higher resolution video content is encoded as 1.5 Mbit/s (minimum) Protected MPEG-4 video (H.264) with a minimum 128 kbit/s AAC audio track.

Playlists

In addition to static playlist support, version 3 of iTunes introduced support for smart playlists.[17] Smart playlists are playlists that can be set to automatically filter the library based on a customized list of selection criteria, much like a database query. Multiple criteria can be entered to manage the smart playlist.[18] In computing, a virtual folder generally denotes an organizing principle for files that is not dependent on their physical location in a folder. ... This article is principally about managing and structuring the collections of data held on computers. ...


Playlists can also be published by a user of iTunes with his or her own preferences.


Playlists can be played randomly or sequentially. The "randomness" of the shuffle algorithm can be biased for or against playing multiple tracks from the same album or artists in sequence (a feature introduced in iTunes 5.0). Party Shuffle can also be biased towards selecting tracks with a higher star rating. With this bias enabled, each star rating increases the preference for that particular song about 4% over that of a one-star-less rated song. Unrated songs are the least likely to be played. Inter-star ratings are stored by iTunes, but only affect this feature in the range of zero to one star. Random redirects here. ... Exit numbers on Interstate 4 in Volusia County, Florida. ...


The Party Shuffle playlist is intended as a simple DJ'ing aid.[19] By default, it selects tracks randomly from other playlists or the library; users can override the automatic selections by deleting tracks (iTunes will choose new ones to replace them) or by adding their own via drag-and-drop or contextual menu. This allows a mixture of both preselected and random tracks in the same meta-playlist. The playlist from which Party Shuffle draws can be changed on the fly; this will cause all randomly chosen tracks to disappear and be replaced. For other meanings of DJ, see DJ (disambiguation). ...

He also announced that the iTunes Store will offer over 1,000 movies for rental by the end of February.[21] The iTunes movie catalog includes content from 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Walt Disney Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Renting a standard definition catalog title will cost US$2.99, while new releases will cost US$3.99. High definition titles will cost US$1.00 more respectively. These movies will also be transferrable to all 6th generation iPods.[22] On June 19th Apple stated that they had sold 5 billion songs using the iTunes store.

Podcasting

Version 4.9 of iTunes, released on June 28, 2005, added built-in support for podcasting. It allows users to subscribe to podcasts for free in the iTunes Music Store or by entering the RSS feed URL. Once subscribed, the podcast can be set to download automatically.

Users can select podcasts to listen to from the Podcast Directory, to which anyone can submit their podcast for placement. The front page of the directory displays high-profile podcasts from commercial broadcasters and independent podcasters. It also allows users to browse the podcasts by category or popularity, and to submit new podcasts to the directory.


The addition of podcasting functionality to a mainstream audio application like iTunes greatly helped bring podcasting to a much wider audience.[23] Within days after iTunes 4.9 was released, podcasters were reporting that the number of downloads of their audio files had tripled, sometimes even quadrupled.[24]


Receiving and using podcasts

Software, often referred to as a "podcatching client," is required to make full use of podcasts' syndication features. Apple's iTunes player is considered the dominant podcatching client, but alternatives exist, including Juice (multiplatform) and Doppler (Windows). Some established audio players, such as AmaroK, Winamp and Mediamonkey also offer (sometimes limited) podcatching functionality. Juice is a cross-platform aggregator application that is used to download podcast media files, such as oggs and mp3s. ... Amarok (formerly known as amaroK or AmaroK) is an audio player application for KDE, which is released independantly from the kmultimedia package, and away from the central release cycle of KDE. It is now thought to be the most popular KDE-based audio player because of its extensive feature... Winamp is a proprietary media player written by Nullsoft, now a subsidiary of Time Warner. ... Not to be confused with Monkeys Audio, an unrelated lossless audio codec. ...


Podcast listeners can listen in one of two ways: through a hardware device like an MP3 player, or simply on their computer using media player software. A digital audio player (DAP) is a device that stores, organizes and plays digital music files. ...


Managing podcasts on an iPod

iTunes offers the ability to create "Smart Playlists" which can be used to control which podcasts are in the playlist using multiple criteria such as date, number of times listened, type, etc. It is also possible to set up iTunes so that only certain playlists will be synced with the iPod. By using a combination of the two techniques it is possible to control exactly which music and/or podcasts will be transferred to the iPod. A user may configure a smart playlist to display only podcasts less than two weeks old or removing any podcast that the iPod user has already listened to. This smart playlist is synced with the iPod every time the iPod is plugged into the PC, ensuring that the user does not have to listen to the same show more than once. Once a podcast has been listened to, it will be removed from this list as soon as the iPod is synced with the PC. There are many criteria which can control what goes in a smart playlist, such as "name," "artist," "category," "grouping," "kind," "last played," "play count," "rating," "last skipped," and "playlist" and these can be combined with functions such as "equals," "is greater than," "is less than," "contains," "is true," "is false," "is," "is not," "does not contain," "starts with," "ends with," "is in the range," "is before," and "is after." As a result, it is possible to control exactly which podcasts are transferred to the iPod. iPod is a brand of portable media players designed and marketed by Apple Inc. ...


Video podcasting

Version 6 of iTunes introduced official support for video podcasting (also known as a vodcast), although video and RSS support was already unofficially there in version 4.9. Users can subscribe to RSS feeds through the iTunes Music Store or by entering the feed URL. Video podcasts can contain downloadable video files (in MOV, MP4, M4V, or MPG format), but also streaming sources and even IPTV. Downloadable files can be synchronized to a video-capable iPod and both downloadable files and streams can be shown in Front Row. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with video clip. ... For RSS feeds from Wikipedia, see Wikipedia:Syndication. ... // Uniform Resource Locator (URL) formerly known as Universal Resource Locator, is a technical, Web-related term used in two distinct meanings: In popular usage and many technical documents, it is a synonym for Uniform Resource Identifier (URI); Strictly, the idea of a uniform syntax for global identifiers of network-retrievable...

Synchronizing iPod and other players

iTunes 2 was the first version of the software to be able to sync with an iPod. iTunes can automatically synchronize its music and video library with an iPod or iPhone every time it is connected. New songs and playlists are automatically copied to the iPod and songs and playlists that have been deleted from the library on the computer are also deleted from the iPod. Ratings awarded to songs on the iPod will sync back to the iTunes library and audiobooks will remember the current playback position. Synchronization is coordination with respect to time. ... Cassette recording of Patrick OBrians The Mauritius Command done by Patrick Tull An audiobook is a recording that is primarily of the spoken word as opposed to music. ...


Automatic synchronization can be turned off in favor of manually copying individual songs or complete playlists. iTunes supports copying music to the iPod; however, only music and videos purchased from the iTunes store can be transferred from the iPod back to iTunes. This functionality was added after third-party software was available which allowed users to copy all content back to your computer. It is also possible to copy from the iPod using ordinary Unix command line tools, or by enabling hidden file viewing in Windows Explorer, then copying music from the iPod drive to a local disk for backup. Doing this can be confusing because the files are arranged in such a way that their folders and (depending on iPod and iTunes versions) file names are seemingly picked at random as they are put on the iPod. It is worth noting however that the files (along with their embedded title and artist information) remain unchanged. It is therefore less confusing to let iTunes reimport, reorganize, and rename all of the files after they are backed up. When music or video purchased through the iTunes Store is copied from an iPod, it will only play on computers that are authorized with the account that was used to purchase them. Several third party utilities can remove this limitation by stripping iTunes DRM from protected files.[25] The legality of using such software in the United States is currently the subject of active debate.[26] Filiation of Unix and Unix-like systems Unix (officially trademarked as UNIX®, sometimes also written as or ® with small caps) is a computer operating system originally developed in 1969 by a group of AT&T employees at Bell Labs including Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie and Douglas McIlroy. ... Windows Explorer running on Windows Vista Windows Explorer running on Windows XP Windows Explorer is an application that is part of modern versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system that provides a graphical user interface for accessing the file systems. ... Digital rights management (DRM) is an umbrella term that refers to access control technologies used by publishers and copyright holders to limit usage of digital media or devices. ...


When an iPod is connected that does not contain enough free space to sync the entire iTunes music library, a playlist will be created and given a name matching that of the connected iPod. This playlist can then be modified to the user's preference in song selection to fill the available space.


The Mac OS X version of iTunes can also synchronize with a small number of discontinued digital music players,[27] while the Windows version will support only the iPod.[28] The synchronization is limited, however, in that the iPod is the only digital music player compatible with Apple's proprietary FairPlay digital rights management technology, and thus most music purchased through the iTunes Store can only be played on an iPod. The remaining ability to synchronize with a limited number of legacy digital music players is likely a remnant of Apple's timeline the music industry: iTunes was released in January 2001, nine months prior to the iPod's unveiling and slightly more than two years before the introduction of the iTunes Music Store. When iTunes was released, compatibility with other music players was critical; as iPod has become the dominant digital music player, that compatibility may no longer a necessity. iPod Creative Zen Micro A digital audio player (DAP) is a device that stores, organizes and plays digital music files. ... FairPlay is a digital rights management (DRM) technology created by Apple Inc. ...


A number of unsupported third-party programs have been created to help a user of iTunes to synchronize songs with any music player that can be mounted as an external drive. Though iTunes is the only official method for synchronizing with the iPod, there are other programs available that allow the iPod to sync with other software players.


As of iTunes 7, purchased music can be copied from the iPod onto the computer. The computer must be authorized by that iTunes account. iTunes currently allows up to 5 computers to be authorized on one account. It does not allow you to transfer imported music files between computers. This may be necessary to back songs up, transfer songs to a new computer, or restore music after a disk failure using an iPod as the backup source. A number of shareware or freeware applications exist that complement iTunes. // Note 1: Answering No to the Was the problem caused by Floola? question in Floolas Repair iPod wizard will cause it to rebuild the iPods database. ...


iTunes-managed content can also be accessed via the Apple TV set-top box. Files in the iTunes library can either be synchronized with the Apple TV unit, which results in their being copied to the Apple TV's hard drive, or streamed to the Apple TV directly from a Macintosh or PC. Apple TV does not require the use of iTunes (as of the 'Take Two' software update); it can now import files from the iTunes Store directly over the internet.[29] Apple TV is a digital media receiver designed, marketed and sold by Apple. ...

Integration with other applications

In Mac OS X, iTunes is tightly integrated with Apple's iWork and iLife suites. These applications can access the iTunes Library directly, allowing access to the playlists and songs stored within (including encrypted music purchased from the iTunes Store). Music files from iTunes can be embedded directly into Pages documents and can supply the score for iDVD, iMovie, and Keynote productions. iTunes is also integrated with Front Row (Front Row compiles its information from the user's iTunes and iPhoto libraries). In addition, any song exported from GarageBand, Apple's music-making program, is automatically added to the user's iTunes music library. iTunes's Artwork.saver is a screen saver included in Mac OS X v10.4 that displays album artwork as a screen saver. iTunes widget is a Dashboard Widget that controls iTunes.

As of June 2008, it is unclear whether this feature will remain available for the next version of iTunes for in the United States the upcoming iPhone 3G will be required to be activated at an affiliated store.[30] June 2008 is the sixth month of the current leap year. ...


Printing

To compensate for the lack of a physical CD, iTunes can print custom-made jewel case inserts as well as song lists and album lists. After burning a CD from a playlist, one can select that playlist and bring up a dialogue box with several print options. The user can choose to print either a single album cover (for purchased iTunes albums) or a compilation cover (for user-created playlists). iTunes then automatically sets up a template with art on one side and track titles on the other.

iMix

An iMix is a user-created playlist published in the iTunes Store. iMixes were first introduced in iTunes version 4.5. Anyone can create an iMix free of charge. iMixes are limited to 100 songs and must feature content available on the iTunes Store. iMixes are public and searchable by any iTunes user. Users may also rate any iMix using a five-star system. iMixes are active for one year from their original published date.

Internet radio

iTunes 1.0 came with support for the Kerbango Internet radio tuner service, giving iTunes users a selection of some of the more popular online radio streams available.[31] When Kerbango went out of business in 2001, Apple created its own Web radio service for use with iTunes 2.0 and later.[32] As of February 2008, the iTunes radio service features 1795 "radio stations," mostly in MP3 streaming format. Programming covers many genres of music and talk, including streams from both internet-only sources as well as streamed traditional stations. iTunes also supports the .pls and .m3u stream file formats used by Winamp, enabling iTunes to access almost any stream using that format. Kerbango was both a company acquired by 3Com and its lead product. ... Streaming media is multimedia that is continuously received by, and normally displayed to, the end-user while it is being delivered by the provider. ... Winamp is a proprietary media player written by Nullsoft, now a subsidiary of Time Warner. ...


Since the release of iTunes 7, Apple no longer promotes the Internet radio feature, and there is no mention of it on the iTunes website. However, it remains in the QuickTime 7.0.4, and iTunes EULA used by iTunes 6.0.5.20. With iTunes 7, the "Radio" item has reappeared as an optional source in the preferences, along with its stations. Companies such as iRADIOmast offer iTunes plugins that add thousands of additional radio stations. QuickTime is a multimedia framework developed by Apple Inc. ...

Plugins

iTunes visualizers: the default Apple visualiser is in the top left, LED Spectrum Analyzer on the right, and Gaslight in the bottom left.

iTunes supports visualizer plugins and device plugins. Visualizer plugins allow developers to create music-driven visual displays. The visualizer plug-in software development kits for Mac and Windows can be downloaded for free from Apple.[33] Device plugins allow support for additional music player devices, but Apple will only license the APIs to bona fide OEMs who sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Criticism

iTunes has been criticised by Mark Pilgrim for storing all its metadata in an "undocumented binary black hole". If that one file is corrupted, song ratings, smart playlists and other data can be lost. iTunes will attempt to restore this data from the accompanying XML file, but this may not work.[34] Mark Pilgrim is the author of Dive into Python, a guide to the Python programming language. ...


The quality of Apple's MP3 variable bitrate encoding was criticised by Roberto Amorim. In a January 2004 double-blind public participated in a codec listening test of six MP3 encoders encoding at 128 kbit/s, conducted by Roberto Amorim, and the iTunes MP3 VBR encoder came last. The author has later acknowledged that there may have been serious issues with how iTunes was tested.[35] Variable bitrate (VBR), or less commonly variable bit rate, is a term used in telecommunications and computing that relates to the bitrate used in sound or video encoding. ...

iTunes iSbogus (2382 words)
Apple's iTunes Music Store is a reasonable deal for independents: they get a new revenue source, and their music is displayed alongside the major labels' with no pay-for-placement.
If iTunes help the majors survive, then independents lose their only chance at a level playing field (the government certainly is working to break up the major label monopoly).
iTunes can be a good deal for independent labels and musicians (see side bar) and there's no reason for them to boycott-- labels get a somewhat bigger cut than they would from a CD sale and artists on indy labels get much bigger cut than those on major labels.
