    hello everybody

    i just had a crazy idea

    could we use the islsk sync process to sync all our mp3 into the itunes library just by copying our mp3 into the islsk folders (with mobile finder , file browser , ssh or a future dedicated software)

    in theory they should be recognized and possible to synchronize don't you think

    sorry if i created a useless thread but i do think this could work

    1. set up an http server for your music
    2. create index pages for said music
    3. install Safari DL Plugin
    4. ln -s /var/root/Media/Downloads /var/root/Downloads (so your files end up viewable in iSlsk)
    5. ????
    6. Profit! (open up iSlsk fresh and import)

    there appears to be a bug (at least on my iTouch) where if you use 'import this file only' the file does not import properly; use 'import all files' instead

    yes, you can do it, also if you want your safari downloaded files folder (/var/root/Downloads) to be linked with the islsk

    1.DElete the Downloads folder of islsk (/var/root/Media/Downloads)
    2. on winscp or cyberduck, or whatever you use to manage ssh (copy & Paste)

    ln -s /var/root/Downloads /var/root/Media

    ln -s /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control /var/root/Media/Downloads

    3 that's it, now each mp3 you download from seeqpod.com, playlist.com or anywhere, you should be able to import it into your ipod library

    I wish there was a Safari plugin that would let you choose where to download... meh.
