Plugin tab and try to install/uninstall the desired
plugin from there. If it is not available or not listed, follow
To install a plugin, you simply have to place it into the beaTunes plugin directory.
The location of your plugin directory depends on your operating
From beaTunes 2.1 on they are:
- OS X:
- Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10:
- Windows XP:
c:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Application Data\tagtraum industries\beaTunes\plugins
Note that the Windows Explorer may hide the folder
AppData from you. To navigate to it, you can simply
type it into the Explorer navigation bar or tell Explorer to
show hidden files.
On OS X the directory denoted as
~ is not your harddrive, but your home
directory. You can get to it by opening a Finder window and
clicking on the little house icon.
Up to (and including) beaTunes 2.0 the locations are:
- OS X:
c:\Documents and Settings\[username]\.beaTunes\plugins
- Vista/Windows 7:
Make sure that there is only one version of the plugin in that folder - i.e. remove any older versions. Typically, plugins for beaTunes 2 don't work for beaTunes 3.
Never remove plugins, while there are still tasks in the task queue!
