Export iTunes MP3 Songs and Albums

iTunes is definitely not one of my favorite music players, and thanks to Keshav who showed me how to use a barebones player and convert Foobar2000 into a super music player, I have been using it more and more.

Of course if you have a iPod or iPhone you do require iTunes to transfer and manage music. But there are iTunes alternatives like Floola and iPhone PC Suite.

If you do not want to use a alternative but just want to export MP3 songs and albums for iTunes, iHandler a based application can definitely come in handy.

The software will basically allow you to load a iTunes Library and export the songs and albums and allow you to store it in another folder so that you can use it with other music players.

iHandler is based on Adobe Air so it can run on both Windows and Mac.

Find & Delete Duplicate Music Files

We all admire our music collection and arrange them carefully, however no matter how much we try, there may be duplicate copies of the same music in our collection.

Now we do have a choice of painfully sorting through each and every music file to find duplicates and then delete them, or then we could just use a tool to do the hard work for us.

Publish Pandora Songs To Last.fm

Pandora and Last.fm are two really good places to listen to music online, however both are different services, but a small script will allow you to publish the music you are hearing on Pandora to your Last.fm account.

PandoraFM is simple. As you listen to music via the excellent Pandora music service each song gets submitted to your profile on Last.FM. You’re listening to music, so why shouldn’t you be able to account for it? Some call it a mash-up, others call it a hack. I call it Pandora.FM.

So go ahead and share all the fantastic music you listen to on both these services, you will need to download and install the Greasemonkey add-on for before you can use this script.

If you are a Last.fm user and are in a country where it will be available as a paid service, you can check out some Last.fm Alternatives which are free.
