Make iTunes create a Library entry containing everything
Authored by: timcrawf on Jan 09, '09 08:38:07AM

Thank you for this tip. since I use many different ways to gather my iTunes content, much ends up in the wrong place. This will help, put it all in one.
But a question, If I keep the separate Libraries, how can I move files between them? Some of my podcasts end up as music, and some as audiobooks.

Put the tracks you want to copy from the first library into a playlist; export (File > Library > Export Playlist...) the playlist as XML (see the popup at the bottom of the dialog). Change to the second library. Import (File > Library > Import Playlist...) the XML you just created. Get rid of the playlist(s) if necessary, keeping the tracks.

While your answer was good for my poorly worded question, it was not what I was looking for. What I would like is a way to move something from Library/Music to Library/Podcasts, or Library/Audiobooks

OIC. Well, you can use the script Make Bookmarkable to change the selected tracks such that iTunes sees them as Audiobooks. Changing a track to podcast is rather difficult because iTunes maintains the RSS feed of the enclosures. You can try Re-Add Selected Tracks as Podcast, but it can't emulate an RSS feed that already exists, so you can't "re-subscribe" to the pseudo-feeds it creates.
