iTunes library primarily consists of two files, the Library.itl
which is the database of all the songs present in your library and the Library.xml
which contains information about the content of your library. The Library.xml
file plays another important role as it allows third party apps to import information about your iTunes library (playlists, tracks...).
Since the 12.2 update
iTunes no longer create the .xml
file and this tutorial explains how to get it back. You can enable or disable the sharing of this file with other applications using the below procedure:
Open iTunes. Click on the Menu
button > Preferences
Go to the Advanced
section and tick the Share iTunes Library XML with other applications
Click on Ok
to validate. The Library.xml
will be create in: Users/username/Music/iTunes
