This know this was by-design, but I can't remember if there's a good
reason for it or not. I don't think there's a technical reason we left
this out, we probably just did it to limit the scope of the project.

If someone's looking for something to do, this bug is something to look at. :)

We never supported it because we thought it would be confusing, but it turns out its more confusing that Rhythmbox and iTunes don't work like the rest of Mixxx, so I just added Drag and Drop support. Thanks Tobias!

Thank RJ, This is very useful 'cause if vinyl control is enabled you can drang 'n drop now instead of using the context menu.

In MIXXX 1.9 from the library list why can you not drag an Itunes playlist straight to AutoDJ or right click and load to AutoDJ, and when viewing the I tunes playlist the pop up box only allows load to deck 1 & 2 you cannot load to AutoDJ. The only way you can do thi is to select all the tracks in the I tunes playlist window and DnD them into Auto DJ.
