AAC encoding
Authored by: TheFLP on Feb 23, '10 10:19:38PM

I'm finding that if you've changed the default AAC encoder settings in iTunes (Preferences > General > Import Settings), the final import step will fail with an error. I had to select the "iTunes Plus" preset to make it work.

(If you don't normally encode to AAC, you can change the above setting and then go back to your preferred format. The service will use AAC regardless.)

Even after a failed import, you'll still find the original AIFF file in the Trash.

You can edit the AppleScript .workflow file easily!

If you double click the .workflow file, it'll open up in Automator - where you can then edit and change attributes. When you save your results, use Save As so you can keep the original script intact - as a back up. You'll probably have to activate your new script by using this original hint, once you're done.

You'll find the file on your System hard drive, under System > Library > Services > Add to iTunes as a Spoken Track.workflow.

It's a VERY simple script actually!
