itunes ogg script for 10.2
Authored by: webb on Jan 24, '03 05:37:22PM

I also had the idea of modifying the itunes-lame encoder script to do ogg instead. I was about to post it here but found that someone else beat me to it! :) However, this script works in 10.2, and it doesn't require lame (I just commented out all that genre stuff).

We should make a widely accessible page that has an easy installer for all three files (oggenc, OggVorbis.qtx, and a script to rip in itunes) in order to get people using ogg. Also, it would be cool if the script could toggle between ogg and lame just by setting a variable at the beginning, but I was too lazy to do it.


PS: Has anyone else noticed that itunes isn't so good at skip-free play with ogg files? And this is with a dual 867 g4...

itunes ogg script for 10.2
Authored by: joe1 on Mar 24, '03 10:50:47PM

I really like your script Encode with Ogg (1.0). There was one thing missing, encoding the tags and adding it to my playlist. I noticed your comment that said: property useTunesTags : true -- use iTunes after each track encodes for Advanced tagging. Doesn't work.

I played around with it and got it working. I changed the following in on makeDecodeScript on addTagTrack: set theFile to alias ("Macintosh HD:" & outdir of tagRecord & outfile of tagRecord) It seems iTunes (3.0?) really wants the Macintosh HD: in order to add the file to the playlist. Everything seems to work fine from there.
