I tend to use genres when picking music so I made a script to do it.

I also modified the iTunes remote script to include the 'Browse by Genre' command.

However I changed the iTunes remot script to be much simpler to configure (by using multi dimensional arrays). So you can simply change the order of menu entries (or add and remove them). Might be worth making this small mod to the version that ships?

Thanks for your contribution! Much appreciated.

(one day, I shall look at your script to see if you've managed to make it non-slow on huge iTunes libraries. That's what's kept me from adding the Browse by Genre feature in the first place)

Best.

I'm pretty sure that massive libraries would slow down quite a lot (it's a reasonably ugly implementation) I Thought about having some kind of caching system, but it's responsive enough on my library of 3000 tracks.

I would ask you to take a look at the mods I made to the top of the iTunes remote control script though, it's much more robust for changing the contents of the menu :)
