  1. OK, here's another version of the iTunes app, just to test if it cures that file permission error. Please let me know. Thanks iTunes - HQPlayer Server.app.zip
  2. I found a bug today in both my iTunes and Swinsian apps. This bug effected handling libraries on external discs. Here's the version with the bug fix for iTunes. iTunes - HQPlayer Server.app.zip

  4. Here are the default prefs. Nothing to do if you're running HQPlayer on the same Mac as Swinsian and you don't want to force creation of Temp files, create a ramdisk or launch HQPlayer using the app:
  5. Yes, I am serious. I opened this thread to discuss my Swinsian to HQPlayer app for Mac. I wrote this for HQPlayerDesktop and had no idea it could work with HQPEmbedded. It is possible it can, because as Jussi advised, the hqp-control2 app's method calls can also be sent to HQPEmbedded. Although I currently have no means of testing this. I think you are confusing the HQPlayerClient app with hqp-control2. I am not making use of the HQPlayerClient app at all and I believe any discussion of its use belongs elsewhere. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
  6. Perhaps this discussion could be moved to a separate thread?
  7. I’ve tested on different systems with different account names;etc. and haven’t encountered this problem, and that was before opening up the permissions. So I’m at a loss.
  8. Here is a new version where I've opened permissions on the two files my script needs to write to. Please let me know if it prevents this error. Thanks iTunes - HQPlayer Server.app 2.zip
  9. In case anyone is getting any write permission errors as dancingSea experienced with the iTunes app, here is a new version where I've opened permissions on the two files my script needs to write to. Please test and let me know. Thanks Swinsian - HQPlayer Server.app 2.zip
  10. Thanks Jussi. My app allows you to specify the path to the music folder on your Mac, as it appears as a network shared location on the remote machine running embedded. Then, of course, you’d need to specify the IP address of the client machine where embedded is running in place of “localhost”, again in my app’s preferences. It’ll be great if we can get this to work. I didn’t realize it could potentially work with embedded.
  11. Well on MacOS the version 4 HQPlayer Client app includes the hqp-control2 app. It’s that app I’m using to control HQPlayer4Desktop. I didn’t think HQP Embedded could accept commands from the hqp-control2 app and be controlled by it. I could be wrong though. It’s not something I’ve tested. It’s probably a good idea to check this with Jussi.
  12. Ok, thanks for trying that. When you get that error message can you click on the “Edit” button? This should open the Applescript Editor, hopefully at the place that’s provoking the error. Then if you can grab the Applescript editor window using command-shift-4 where it opens and post that here or send to me as a PM, it should help me resolve it.
  13. I think this is where my app is attempting to write to a log file in your music folder. It isn’t critical to write to this file. It’s just for your info to help resolve any issues in your iTunes library. If it causes problems, I’ll remove or comment out the code. Can you do a getInfo on your Music folder and tell me who has read and write permissions? if you’re willing to open up those permissions to “everyone”, it may fix the problem. The only other place where I write to files is within the app itself.
  14. Hi Alex, I'm afraid this wouldn't work as it requires a version of HQPlayer Desktop. Best, Geoff
  15. Well, I was partly going by this article: https://eclecticlight.co/2016/11/18/goodbye-applescript/ …which is a bit old by now and you're right, Applescript is still here
