it's a really really simple concept, I just can't figure out to do it... I'm trying to use Applescript to use iTunes to listen to different files on a site almost like a background radio. To get this to work, I just need to figure how to change file data through Applescript.

But when I try this code

set address of current track to "dummyURL2011"

Within the iTunes wrapper of course, it returns an error about file permissions.

However, when I go into iTunes manually, go to Get Info, and edit the URL, it works fine. The track that was playing keeps playing until it reaches the end. Then, once it plays again, it plays the new URL, exactly what I want.

How do I get this to work automatically? Through Applescript, or Python...
