I was excited when Amazon launched their Cloud based music player/service the other day so I came home, downloaded the Amazon MP3 Uploader app so that I could start packing the cloud with awesome music. I fired up the Uploader app, it said it was searching for my music and then…..No Music Found. WHAT? Come on….So I poked around a bit and came to find out that the Amazon Uploader app will only look for your iTunes library in ~/Music/iTunes. Well that is lame. That isn’t where my iTunes library is. So now what. I’m on Mac OS X, so first I just tried making a short cut from where my iTunes library is to my Music folder by clicking and dragging while holding option. Fired it back up and…..nothing again. So I opened up the Terminal and went and looked at that shortcut. That shortcut isn’t an actual symbolic link. Ok…I’ll fix that! Run this command:
ln -s /path/to/your/iTunes iTunes
Then fire back up the MP3 uploader app and voila! It now can find your music. I just wanted to share cause I did a quick google and nothing really came up. So there you all go. Now upload all your music to amazon before they get shut down. 😉
