Bug Description

OSX 10.6.2 / iTunes 9.0.2 / features_sqlite branch

Mixxx does not check if a file from iTunes playlist is readable audio file. All available files from your iTunes library are selectable.

So you can load (music)-videos into Mixxx` player which will cause a crash.
Tested with *.m4v and *.mov files.

Thanks jus,

I just added a fix to trunk (we just moved features_sqlite to trunk). Please let me know if this fixes it. It should not show m4v's, mov's (or any other file Mixxx cannot play) in the iTunes library anymore, nor should it show any playlist that does not have any audio files in it.

Hmmm, can`t build from trunk cause of scons error "Did not find Porttime development header,exiting!".

This error is new, have not changed my config. Will try later again.

Hi, Jus... it looks like portmidi is now required to build Mixxx in trunk, I don't know what version is needed but I'm guessing the libportmidi-dev package version in Karmic would be sufficient.

I ended up compiling Portmidi for OSX from source http://sourceforge.net/projects/portmedia/files/portmidi/199/portmidi-src-199.zip/download. Now all dependencies are fine.

But could not compile r2241 with mp4 support, scons terminated because of error:

Compiled r2241 without mp4 support.

Could not see any difference in Mixxx iTunes view. Is the missing mp4 support the reason?
Still *.m4v ,*.mp4 and *.mov files are visible and causing a crash when loaded in player.

iTunes playlists containing mp3 audio files doesn`t show up at all.

Hmmm, i may bring this bug back to life..

Testing Mixxx 1.8beta2 r2444 and by accident i scrolled to the iTunes movie folder in Mixxx`library.
I have a bunch of *.mp4 movie file in there.
First Mixxx stalled and by clicking on a random file in the folder Mixxx crashed.
