the cgi runs under the user account of the web server, which probably
doesn't have access to user-interface stuff (not to speak of iTunes.app
running in your account).
BTW, You might want to use popen3 to read stderr, in order to read
possible error messages.

you might try Bob's aeve module instead. Also search in the archives of
this mailing lists for tips regarding iTunes.
