The download icon is in the top right corner. If you go to the iTunes preferences, you can turn off automatic downloads as well.

I've asked before, but do podcasts not have the 'now playing' icon next to them anymore? Mine's been missing for the past few osx/itunes updates and the problem persisted through a completely clean installation.

Its only there when something is downloading though. If I initiate a download, the button appears, and the downloads screen only shows that thing I told itunes to download.

Automatic downloads ARE disabled and she isnt even signed in to itunes with her account.

Oh my god stop loving with the mini player. They removed the quick 5-star rating a while ago, but now the player looks like dogshit. A progress bar with huge font. Get the gently caress outta here.

12.6 seems to be a minor revision but the installer is dozens of megabytes larger. Any idea what that's about?

I noticed that the music player on my iphone doesn't allow star ratings anymore, have they done away with them completely now, or just made them more difficult to access? I ain't upgrading mine to find out (12.4.1.6)

They're back in the beat of iOS 10.3. Of course, you have to go to the "..." button, then tap Rate Song on the menu that pops up before you can enter them. I don't know why they took just tapping the album artwork.

Songs that show up as Matched are moving to my phone just fine, but songs that list as Uploaded aren't working worth a poo poo, it's not uploading the whole song. The songs sound fine on the computer. What gives?

windows 10.

my library's huge. part local, part cloud. whenever i try to switch between any of my playlists or library sections, itunes freezes. songs keep playing, but i cannot select, scroll, or tell itunes to do anything. this happens about 95% of the time. sometimes it unfreezes after a minute or two. regardless, what i found is i can always unfreeze it by minimizing itunes, then maximizing it. works like a charm after that...until i switch between any of my playlists or library sections again.

what does that tell you about the root of my freezes? it tells me there's some wrong about the visuals. maybe itunes is less at fault than my video card? my drivers are up-to-date. any logs i can check out?

I had a similar problem with a past computer, and that turned out to be a dying hard drive. I can only imagine that your part cloud part hard drive setup is driving the problem.

Man, why do they change the "play next" list with every update. Now on Windows it's super awkward where you have to scroll down for one song to see it whereas before it didn't have a scrollbar at all. And also now if you mouse over any of the songs on the list a big blue "X" with a white circular background covers the entire album art and before it was just a tiny "x" in the corner.

Minor complaints I guess but just.. why?

E: Actual problem: My library is in iCloud, I use iTunes Match on my Windows PC but iTunes won't play certain songs. There are albums and songs I've bought from iTunes Store that iTunes tries to play while on shuffle but skips them after a second or two. Same when I try to manually play them. When I try to download the song, it gives me an error message (-206) and tells me to check my internet connection. This seems to be a problem with some purchased songs/albums only. I've tried to reauthorize my computer but it just says, obviously, that the computer is already authorized.

The songs play fine on other devices.

E2: Nevermind, just had to go to my purchases and redownload the tracks. Leaving this here in case anyone else has the issue/as a monument to my own stupidity.

Anyone have this problem using Apple Music on iPhone?

An album will release songs ahead of its release (this has happened to me before, but this weekend it's Pure Comedy). I'll download them. Then when the full album comes out, I click to download the entire album and it starts to... then doesn't. I get that it might be buggy at midnight Thursday when it drops but 48 hours later it's still giving me this problem. Already tried removing the album and redownloading... doesn't work. Just lets me download those same pre-release songs and nothing else.

Anyone have advice on a program I can use to get my songs off an old iPhone? I have a bunch of MP3s from old CDs on my last iPhone, but since I bought a new phone and computer (and trusted the Apple Store folks to use the iCloud backup to move stuff to the new phone, rather than using a hard backup...) I don't have the songs on either new device. I know I could just dig up my old laptop and do some magic with a library transfer, but I'm only 75% sure I can find both that laptop and a working power cable, whereas I 100% have the old phone and a USB cable for it.

(I tried using iExplorer's free mode and just accepting that it'll take me a week of 10 songs at a time, 1 transfer per minute, when I remember to alt-tab and load a new transfer) but iExplorer decided to gently caress up the transfer and move the first 15 seconds of every song to the end of the song. So that's out. And I didn't want to pay $40 to get all the songs.

EDIT: It looks like Sharepod has done what I need. Hopefully no problems!

EDIT 2: poo poo, it locks me at 50 song transfers if I don't pay. Bah.

Has anyone ever had any of their iTunes store purchases removed after buying them? A movie I had in my wish list was removed from the store (I'm guessing licensing issues) and it reminded me of stories of people who would buy something and then lose access to it if it's removed from the store. (http://danhon.com/2013/02/13/dont-t...s-in-the-cloud/) I know this happened with some Disney and Pixar movies in the past, and Disney reworked their license agreement so people who purchased the movies could still watch them. I know you're supposed to download your purchases since you can't lose access to the MP4 file if it's on your system, but I don't want to download like 80 movies and use up all of that space on things I watch like once a year.

I bought a single, had the single deleted, and had the single not transfer over when the album became available. It hasn't happened often, but I was... frustrated when it happened.

Hello chiicagooo!

Oh, wait, is that a GameStop employee in the back? Hey, you, give me a refund. No, I don't care if it was my fault, just - look, am I the one with the microphone or not? REFUND, biyotch!

Are there any price-tracking resources for media in the iTunes store? I know about AppShopper for apps, but I was wondering about music (and I guess movies/etc).
Do they just never really have sales outside of the occasional "Essential Summer Albums for $6.99" kind of deal?

Is there any way to do a search on the itunes store that is more detailed/powerful than the default one? I've been using this link but it seems to have stopped working in the last month or so, nothing seems to be listed past late April

Yes it's happened to me several times with music. Buy an album, six months or a year later I go to redownload it and its not in my purchases. Check the store afterwards and it's not available for purchase anymore. Occasionally even weirder stuff will happen where it's in my purchases but half the tracks are gone. I noticed Ministry's 'Rio Grande Blood' had tracks missing and checking the store afterwards they're selling it missing 3 tracks now? The amazon mp3 and CD versions are fine so who loving knows.

Is there any way to edit your ipod's contents on another computer, without making that computer your new itunes/music library home?

I have itunes installed, my ipod is connected, and I want to just edit some album art, all on my non-home computer. The edits show in itunes, but I can't figure out how to transfer them to my ipod without wiping the ipod because it will detect that none of my music is on this comp.

I think I posted on here a long time ago about album art problems in iTunes, but it just became an issue again for some reason.

Heres a recap of my old problem, which I thought I had fixed: I download a lot of mp3s from a service that uses disgustingly low-res album art. After I download them and import them into iTunes, I couldn't seem to change the album art to the hi-res versions. If I "Get Info" and delete the old image and insert the h-res image, it doesn't seem to actually save the new image in the tags of the mp3 file. I never could figure out how to make it work, so my solution finally was to delete all of the downloaded files, delete the album art via "get info," re-download the matched iTunes copies (I use iTunes Match), and then get the hi-res album art. This process successfully saves the new image in the mp3 m4a files! It doesn't work with files that don't match, but that's a minority.

I thought this was fixed, until now.

I've noticed that iTunes has started displaying the old album art again, even though the new album art appears to be there. Occasionally it will show the new, hi-res art, but most of the time it doesn't. I have no idea what makes it switch. Also, when I stream my music onto my iPhone/iPad, it always displays the old low-res album art.

How do I force iTunes to completely forget the old album art images and only use the new ones? Is this something to do with iTunes Match? Should I just not use iTunes?

Are you sure you got every song in the album changed? Other than that, maybe delete the cache folder in your ~/Library folder?
