Importing itunes into foobar.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to import my iTunes library into Foobar2000. I figure there has to be a way, but after googling aimlessly for hours, no solutions were found. I have just over 6000 songs in there, and I want to import date added, playlists, last played etc. All that good stuff.

I'm actually shocked Foobar doesn't do this out of the box...

Apparently not. Sigh.

Keeping getting told "I'm using the wrong software for my music" and that "all this is possible in foobar". Yeah, right. Sure.

All songs in your iTunes library should have the metadata saved in the audiofile itself AFAIK.

As foobar2000 is a highly customizable audioplayer, there should definitely be a possibility to get the metadata you saved in the audiofile to display in foobar.

Import all the songs from the root directory and create a new filter in the playlsit. Below is an example for a "Genre" filter.

%Genre%

So I believe you should be able to create a new filter for anything that is saved in the audiofile's metadata as long as you know the exact description thumb.gif

I have only tested the %Genre% filter so far. Don't know to 100% if the above will work for you.
