Is there any way to prevent this? I've disabled the
iTunes Helper Login Item but iTunes will still start automatically when I connect my Bluetooth Headphones.
It is completely stupid and seemingly unrelated but it works:
In the CDs and DVDs preference pane disable iTunes to launch inserted for Audio CDs
your headset is an audio cd you know ;-)
I figured this out on Mavericks. I did five steps:
Rename the iTunes.app to iTunesclosed.app
Open a blank AppleScript Editor and save a blank window in the Applications folder as an application type (not the default script type) as DoNothing.app
Remove the iTunesHelper from system preferences > users > login items
Connect to the bluetooth speaker it will ask you where is iTunes located? Click browse and point it to the DoNothing.app
(iTunes will still launch when you connect to a bluetooth speaker)
In Finder go to Applications and show package contents on iTunesclosed.app. Inside the MacOS folder there is a unix script called iTunes, i right clicked get info and changed the name to iTunesclosed.
With the first three steps, iTunes still opened whenever I connect to my bluetooth speaker. This last step prevented iTunes from opening.
What I did is renaming itunes using
But It does ask where is iTunes when you connect the headset. At least after moving the window around, it doesn't nag me anymore.
