, Doug Adams, of
Doug’s AppleScripts for iTunes, is back with another crop of cool AppleScripts for iTunes, guaranteed free, child-safe, and certified organic.
Color File Labels of Tracks
This script will set the label color of the files of selected tracks to a different color based on the kind of track. Regular AAC = red, Protected AAC = orange, AIFF = yellow, Apple Lossless = green, MP3 = blue, WAV = purple, and QT movie = gray.
Filenames to Song Names
Rename the selected tracks in iTunes with their filenames (minus the extension).
Make Album Playlists
Makes a new playlist for each Album in your library.
AMG EZ Search
This script initiates a search of the
All Music Guide
website with Safari based on your choice of the Song Name or Artist or Album of the selected or playing iTunes track. (Updated for latest AMG changes.)
Find Album Artwork with Google
This popular script performs a Google image search using an Album’s name with the hope of finding the according album artwork. For iTunes 4 or better. (Updated to account for non-English ASCII characters.)
Convert and Export
Convert the files of the selected tracks in iTunes using an encoder chosen on-the-fly (restoring your Preferences-set encoder afterwards). The newly converted files are then moved to a new location of your choice, and their tracks removed from iTunes.
Shared Music Monitor
This script monitors your music folder and keeps track of which songs are played by anything other than your main iTunes application. It then updates iTunes with the correct playcount and last-played date. This allows you to keep iTunes playcounts and last-played dates accurate, regardless of which application or device you use to listen to your music.
Make A Text List
Writes an alphabetical list of your choice of the Albums, Artists, Composers, Genres, or Song Names in iTunes to a text file.
Search for Album’s Files
Searches your Spotlight-indexed drives for audio files that contain a user-entered Album name. Useful for tracking down files you may think are missing. Mac OS 10.4 or better required; Spotlight indexing required.
Text List of Music Folder Files
Creates a text file listing the paths of the audio files in your Music folder (or any other folder you select) sorted alphabetically. Since it uses Spotlight, Mac OS X 10.4 or better is required.
List Folder Files Not Added
Creates a text file listing the file paths of any audio files which are not in iTunes’ database. The default folder searched is your designated “Music” folder, however you can select any folder that may contain audio files at any level. This script relies on Spotlight and thus requires Mac OS X 10.4 or better.
