Transfer iTunes song ratings after re-ripping library
Authored by: e28eta on Sep 21, '11 10:14:59PM
I found this helpful, and posted a copy of the script on GitHub, and then enhanced it to also copy play counts, last played, skip counts, and last skipped. I had some trouble with type coercion to numbers and dates when they were empty, so the script isn't as elegant as it probably could be, but it worked for my 4700 songs that I transferred to a new computer/new library.

Transfer iTunes song ratings after re-ripping library (XML v TXT)
Authored by: drengfer on Nov 03, '12 07:21:32AM

I believe that this script is what I need. I have two libraries, neither a proper subset of the other. I want to "clone" (transfer, apply, copy) the ratings from one library to the other, for those songs that match. That appears to be what this script does.

However, iTunes now creates a .XML database export (not .TXT), and the format appears to be quite different from what this script is expecting.

Has anyone updated this script (or one like it) to parse and process the XML file? Alternatively, is there (still) a way for me to generate a "music.txt" file that will be compatible with this script?
