> Check iCloud Music Li­brary up­load sta­tus

Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

When you con­nect iTunes to iCloud Music Li­brary, tracks that aren’t avail­able in Ap­ple’s huge cat­a­log are up­loaded to your on­line li­brary. For­tu­nately this doesn’t use up any of the stor­age quota for your iCloud ac­count.

iTunes down­sam­ples files that are above a cer­tain qual­ity into 256Kbps AAC files, yet the high­qual­ity orig­i­nal on your Mac is left un­touched. Tracks are in­el­i­gi­ble for up­load if they’re too long, their file size is too large, or they’re en­coded at too low qual­ity. Ap­ple de­scribes the con­di­tions at ap­ple.co/2tqm­bHk.

To find out if any of your tracks have failed to up­load, choose File > New > Smart Playlist. Set the playlist’s rules to match the iCloud Sta­tus of tracks to any of “In­el­i­gi­ble,” “Er­ror,” or “Not Up­loaded.”
