  1. Linking system volume to itunes volume

    The reason I was using this program was because it linked system volume to itunes volume. The update gets rid of this feature. Is there anyway I can download the old version?

      Sorry for such a delay everyone. The main problem is this: The existing app is not sandboxed, and because of that, it has the ability to read presses of the volume key. Apple has required sandboxing for quite some time now, but I’ve been able to slip things by them under the guise of bug fixes. Unfortunately they’ve caught on and are now requiring any updates I submit to be sandboxed.

      What this means is that the next version of Volume for iTunes won’t be able to detect presses of the volume keys. It will have to default to something else like Cmd + F12 (which is just Cmd + Fn + volume). I will setup an option to download a helper app that will once again allow volume key functioning, but that will be an additional step that you as users must do, it’s not something that can be…

    • hide toolbar icon

      Would love to have the ability to hide toolbar icon. It really doesnt do anything besides taking precious toolbar space :)

        • open source & tweaks

          Since it's a free app, why not make it open source, say on github? I'd like to tweak it

          The tweak I'd make is keeping the default behavior of the volume controls -- i.e., adjusting only the system volume -- but adding a shift-volume that adjusts only the iTunes volume (and possibly a shift-alt that adjusts both). (Note that alt-volume control opens the system preference)

          Another tweak is that it could adjust the application volume for whatever is playing audio -- not just iTunes. So if VNC is playing, it adjusts that. If Spotify is playing, it adjusts (only) that,…

              • Version 1.1 worked fine, after updating to 1.2 the volume is not working

                Hi, I am having the same problem here. I had version 1.1 and it operated fine. I could adjust the volume on my itunes with the apple remote. (iMac, Snow Leopard, itunes 11.02 26. itunes streams to my stereo through airport).
                So then I downloaded the version 1.2, restart the computer, it does not work. I removed it and bought the same version again. Nothing. There is an icon in the dock, but upon clicking it nothing happens. There used to appear an icon in the menu bar in the top - left. But it does not with this version.…

                • Incompatible with Mavericks Beta? (10.9 preview version 7)

                  Hi, I'm testing out OS X Mavericks. It seems Volume for iTunes is not compatible yet? Are you planning compatibility for the final release? Cannot live without this software anymore :)

                  • Save an 'enabled' 1|0 value to read on launch

                    Can you make the application save/write it's current state to a settings file ('Application Support' folder) and have the code check which state it was last running in when it launches.

                    The reason for this is it just starts enabled (from what i have seen?) and i want it to run on start-up/login but not necessarily enabled
                    (so now all i have to do is click in the menu bar rather than find and run the application).

                    Many thanks for the application though, it is very much appreciated.

                    • Only-While-Playing Option

                      It would be nice if there was an option (perhaps on the menubar icon) that controlled the volume buttons such that they would act normally when iTunes was *not* playing music.

                      I keep iTunes open all the time, but not always playing music. In those cases, Volume for iTunes could be 'disabled' and when music is playing, it could automatically re-enable itself.

                      • Yosemite volume control indicators (like when changing main system volume)

                        I don't see any indicators on screen, it twould be great to have it - it should mimic system volume indicators. it wolud be great specialy for people who have speakers connected with optical toslink cable - system volume is locked and its not working.

                        • Switch between mean volume

                          I loved to have the options to choice the mean volume. If you anable Volume for iTunes the mean volume is iTunes and you need to hold cmd for your system volume.

                          i want to change it. so normal volume is for the system and volume with cmd is for iTunes. is that posible?

                                  • Volume for Itunes doesn't work on my 10.6.8

                                    Unless installing succeeds, Volume Itunes doens't show up in the upper bar and clicking on the icon in the dock has no effect (as well as clicking in application menu). I upgrade to Mavericks, try on Moutain Lion, and it works, but I have to stay on Snow Leopard for compatibility reasons. Any chance to make your app working on 10.6.8?
