Use case: I often want to toggle between a podcast and a music playlist in iTunes. Say, while ironing I listen to a podcast, later when I do computer work I switch to music, then when unstacking the dish washer I want to go back to the podcast and after this, music is on again, etc, etc…

Is there a script or plugin for iTunes, which remembers track, position and library/playlist, so that I can switch back to it? Or is there another convenient way to achieve this?

It sounds like you are referring to something like a Smart Playlist. Smart Playlists organizes your songs more, based upon song type, last listened to, skip count, etc.

No it is not about smart playlists. It is about switching from one library to another (or a playlist) and being able to switch quickly back again. – halloleo Jun 21 '12 at 12:26
