    Hi All,

    I recently jumped on board with ITunes Match. For the most part, it works very well give or take some album covers that won't sync.

    However - I recently encountered a major problem that is effecting my enjoyment of other apps such as Splice or IMovie [ IOS version ] . Because ITunes Match takes over your music catalog -- it also now prevents you from adding a track to a video your editing on the fly from your ITunes collection [ ie. the songs that you synced to your phone ] .

    I have not seen people talking about this elsewhere and am curious if anyone has encountered it and/or found a work around? It's very disappointing!

    Thanks, MD

    ahh

    Oh you're genius. I'll try that! For the record -- is there a formular for how long a downloaded song stays 'in the cache' or whatever?

    Thanks!

    Yeah, until you load up another song/album.

    Basically the song has to be stored locally, for the apps to be able to see it.

    As to the other, it's supposed to be a smart, dynamic thing where older, seldom played stuff is deleted to make room for newer. But you can also manually delete.
