Firstly, does this work with iCloud Music Library at all, or are all my changes lost after I restart iTunes, or somewhere along the line?
beaTunes only works well on local files, not on iCloud or Apple Music files. Apple has so far chosen not to publish suitable programming interfaces for either of these cases. One might assume, Apple is interested in vendor lock in.
Secondly, BeaTunes doesn't seem to compute color for any song, making it very weak to build playlists which end up basically just being the discography of whatever artist I started with.
Are you trying this on local files? What did you try and did you see any error messages?
Well, I guess the local files thing explains it. I have my entire library on iCloud, especially because I move between computers a lot, making it much easier to have a centralized library online, rather than several local ones.
Oh well, I guess, I'll use BeaTunes to get BPM for songs.
Thanks for answering quickly, I get the limitation. I wish Apple was more flexible in these things.
