OS X :: Cover Art In Front Row From Shared Itunes Library
Mar 28, 2008
How about fixing this one apple, when viewing/listening to a dvd/cd from a shared itunes library via front row, the artwork (CD covers/DVD Box Art) is blank. This worked in the leopard betas' but never has worked since release. I thought Apple was all about the experience, I guess they don't care about Front Row and shared libraries.
Can you point me to where the solutions are?, which are:
1. Whenever I try to play music and videos through Front Row, it says, direct quote: "there are no items in your iTunes library", when in fact I have 5000+ songs, dozens of TV shows and movies, all of which work fine in iTunes. I made sure a) all media files are CHECKED (Selected) in my library, b) the Consolidate Library function has always been ON, c) iTunes is open and d) my iTunes library is in the default location, i.e. user/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music. 2. Photos appear correctly in Front Row and DVDs play, I just can't see my videos and music. 3. One interesting thing: the Album Art screen saver also says that "Your iTunes library does not contain any songs with artwork", while most of my iTunes music have album art embedded and they display correctly in iTunes.
I even tried re-installing OS X, but it still does not work! Here is the computer I am using: 17-inch 2.0 gHz Intel Core 2 Duo Mac OS X (10.4.10) iMac from October, 2006 with iTunes 7.3.1 installed and working. I have had this problem since (I think) iTunes 6.
Here is my problem: I want to access my iTunes library from a shared drive.
Here is my equipment:
1. Imac running iTunes 10.6
2. 1 week old Macbook Air running iTunes 10.6
3. 1 Timecapsule that is 1 day old, bought with the express purpose of putting my extensive iTunes library on it, and was assure I would be able to stream it.
4. An Airport express hooked to my stereo.
The concept was that the Air doesn't really have the capability to hold all my music, but I want to use it as a "remote" to select songs through iTunes and play them on my stereo. I did NOT want to leave my iMac on at all times and do homes haring that way.Therefore, I followed intructions fonund else where and moved my iTunes library from my iMac to the newly installed shared drive on the Time Capsule.I went into iTunes on the Air selected preferences, advanced, and changed the location of the Air's iTunes library to that of the one on the Time Capsule. It sees all the music. I close preferences.
I'm using iTunes 9.1 on a Mac. I've set up my library on an external drive - works fine. I've created a shared library on my wife's profile so she can share my music. My iTunes Shared library appears on her iTunes - but I can't drag/drop my music into her library or onto her iPod. How can I transfer my music and playlists to her?
I have my iTunes library stored on a NAS, UNRAID, and I currently do not have my files copied into the iTunes library. They reside on the UNRAID in a movies and movies folder, so the iTunes library itself is fairly small.
However, this is what I would like to do. Since I have several AppleTV and several other Macs running. I'd like to keep one Mac on 24/7 and have iTunes open all the time pointed to my NAS iTunes.
My wife and I have both just got iPhones. I have created a user account for her on my intel iMac and want to use the iphones on the one computer.
I need to share the iTunes library (and iphoto eventually) so I dont have to double-up everything.
I have tried dragging the Itunes Music into the shared folder... and creating aliases as described in various places on the web and in magazines, but this simply does not work. No tracks appear in my wife's itunes. There is not even 'shared library' icon on the left hand side.
Seems that maybe i had this in the wrong forum so i'm posting it over here...
I have all my music stored on a Vista machine. I share that library with my Macbook Pro. When i open itunes on the macbook it recognizes the library on my vista machine and i enter the password and everything is fine for about 90 seconds. Then it just drops the connection and the shared library disappears. Any ideas? anyone else have this problem? It's not a network problem because i can still access the internet and stuff after this happens.
iTunes skips songs when I try to listen to a shared library from my Mac Pro, on my MacBook Pro.
This always happens when trying to "fast-forward" through a song (it'll skip to the next song).
I'm assuming that this is some kind of networking issue, because if I let the song play long enough, for what I perceive as enough time to transfer the song entirely from one computer to the other, it won't skip to the next song when fast-forwarding.
The two computers are in adjacent rooms, connected wirelessly via an AEBS on 802.11N (g compatibility mode).
I have recently upgraded from a 24" iMac to a 27". The screen is great, but after a few hours of work (this is my work machine), my eyes really begin to bother me.Has anyone out there tried using their iMac without the front glass sheet over the LCD? What does the LCD look like?I don't have any children around, so I'm not worried about the screen being scratched or damaged -- but if course I would eventually need to clean it just to remove the dust build up.
iMac G4, 1.25 RAM, OS 10.4.11: Suddenly can't open Apps: The application "Flash Player" could not be launched because of a shared library error: "2<Flash Carbon Player><CarbonLib><CFMPriv_System><>". MS OFC docs won't open either. TechTool Pro hangs when checking files structures, so won't go further. Same with OnyX.
This iMac keeps running fine, just like the "Little Engine That Could". Suddenly this <CarbonLib> problem developed. I did not move anything out of folders. I tried installing MS OFC 2008 (I have OFC 2004 and it has always worked well) but the MS installer won't open that App.; I get the 'Shared Lib Err' for that also.
I purchased and downloaded Warcraft III from blizzard and was wondering if I could learn how to solve this problem. After The download is finished, I attempt to open up the installer and I get a message saying "Application launch failure: The application "installer" could not be launched because of a shared library error: "<installerLauncher><CarbonLib><CFMPriv_LaunchServices><>".
I have an iBook G4 with an OS X 10.3.9 operating system. Earlier today my screen went blank and appeared to have turned off on its own, even though it still had more than half of its battery charge. I pressed the power button, then had to press it again to restart it. When I tried to access my Word documents, I got this message:
The application "Word" could not be launched because of a shared library error: "1<Microsoft Word><CarbonLib><CFMPriv_CarbonCore>"
I have explored all of the online advice, I have checked the Console (the error code is -2804), I have run Disk Utility for the disk permissions, I have re-installed my operating system. I still cannot open anything in Microsoft Office (2004), nor can I open AppleWorks. I am on the verge of a mental breakdown because I have 3 major papers due this week. If I can't have access to Word on my computer I won't be able to finish them on time.
Running a powerbook pro intel OS X 10.4.11. I have adobe create suite and have used photoshop and image ready fine for a tear or so. But now my wife wants to use illustrator and it just loads up as could not be launched because of a shared library error: "<illustrator><AWSCommonUI.dll><WebAccessUtils.dll><>" I can see all the illustrator files etc.
Today I went to open a casting call document from my acting agent using MS Word in Office 2004 as I usually do every week and I got the following error message: The application "Word" could not be launched because of a shared library error: "<Microsoft Word><Apple;Carbon;Multimedia><CFMPriv_QuickTime><>"
I then tried scouring the web as I usually to find a solution. I tried repairing the permissions and rebooting. That did nothing for the problem. I then returned to the web and found that others having this type of problem also had problems opening Adobe Photoshop. I checked my copy and, lo and behold Photoshop gave me the same error message.
Recently I updated my versions of Quick Time and Adobe Reader. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but other people with this problem have mentioned installing updates as well. Due to the fact that I was given the two above programs as well as Illustrator by my last job before they went belly up I don't not have any of the discs to re-install. That said reinstalling Mac OS X is the last resort.
I can't open Microsoft Office due to this error. All my work is trapped in PowerPoint, Word Documents and Excel Files. And I don't have the disks it was a computer given to me. Recently I ran disk utility and had an error that was reportedly minor but ended up after all other efforts tips fdsk and others failed buying disk warrior. And in target disk mode running Please don't ask how because I am not really very tech savvy. But it rebuilt everything and simply reported
File. "._QuickTime.rsrc" Detected that the resource header is damaged and cannot be repaired Location: G3Macintosh HD/System/Library/Frameworks/Versions/A/Resources/"
I hit replace and it did and that was all then after I did get an update for Itunes (I don't even use them) and Quick Time on OSX 10.4.11. Was it working before this update? I honestly don't know. Because everything was fine until my computer would turn from the Gray apple screen one day. I used disk utility but it didn't fix the problem. Lastly I have tried installing a combo update and repairing permissions but neither has worked.
when I went to click into my word program I got this message The application "Word" could not be launched because of a shared library error: "0<Microsoft Word><CarbonLib><CFMPriv_ColorSync><>"I went into my Activity monitor and there is no HP processing there is a Microsoft AU Daemon running. should I quit that? I have a powerbook G4 and there are no new software updates for my computer.
Getting error message: The application "Word" could not be launched because of a shared library error: "-<Microsoft Word><CarbonLib><CFMPriv_System><>"
Getting similar message when I tried opening other Microsoft, Photoshop, palm desktop, and AOL applications. (Since the only application that now opens is Final Draft, perhaps this is sign that my focus needs remain in on screenplays?) Tried downloading and reinstalling my current update version: 10.4.11 It said my system doesn't meet the requirements to update (even though it currently exists as this & I have enough disc memory available.)
My iTunes library has apparently filled my entire iMac (according to the computer I have over 97 days' worth of music). I would like to know 1) how to properly save my iTunes library to an external hard drive and 2) how to use iTunes so that it uses the library on the external drive.
am new to this and have a new iPhone I was wonder if I can get a simple question answer i tried Google and there seems to be a bunch of ways to do what I?m looking for.So I want to take my friends iTunes library (5300+ songs) and transfer them to my library ( 2000+ songs ) and then once that is done I want to be able to put them on my iPhone / ipod 32g ( 32g 3gs black can anyone tell me how and keep in mind I want to kiss (keep it simple st#$id )
I upgraded to Lion and sadly, Front Row is not supported.Â I somehow found the Front Row app in my systems folder and moved it to my Applications folder.Â Front Row now shows up in my applications folder, as well as Launchpad.Â However, when I go into Front Row, it does not recognize any of my media from iTunes.Â I tried out this website: [URL]..blog/frontrowenablerforlion to no avail.Â I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how to make Front Row work in OS X Lion.Â
I find that I swipe on my macbook pro to go through the cover flow, I find that it lags or freezes then flies by as if to catch up. But then it freezes again, flies by, irritating. Has anyone else experienced this?
Many Podcasts which I subscribed doesn't have any Cover Art but on the iTunes Store they have all a logo.It's a lack of the Podcat producers?Honestly it's not a "problem", but sometimes I find it esthetically annoying.
Alright so I downloaded a season of Lost on iTunes and two of the episodes were mislabeled. Episode 13 should have been 16 and 16 should have been 13. So I swapped all of the info but the episode description did not change. It is correct in iTunes, but when I switch to Front Row the episode descriptions are incorrect. Is there a way to edit "info" in Front Row or make it recognize changes in iTunes? I was under the impression that it would do this automatically. Not sure what is wrong here.
