Can iTunes control DP?

Or Vice Versa?

My live show has 300 tracks in iTunes. Most have videos or visualizers running.

I'd like to play a song on iTunes playlist and have it start a specific track in DP so I can add midi events for lighting ques and patch changes etc.

I play requests so I don't have a planned set list.

Any way of doing this?
Thanks!

iTunes would have to send/receive MIDI messages, so it's a definite no.

I've just heard that it's possible to use iTunes as an ableton browser, but I have no idea how that works.

From what I know, which may not be much , you can add your iTunes library folder to the Live browser so you can navigate through your songs. Playlists won't work though. That's not exactly what you're looking for though because Live still doesn't "control" iTunes in any way.
