iTunes 2? (Re: What ripper?)
Authored by: sjonke on Nov 01, '01 12:21:41PM

iTunes 2 is scriptable, however I have no documentation on how to use it that way. Note that you can run applescript from the command-line or within a shell script via /usr/bin/osascript. Also note that iTunes 2 can be set to automatically rip and then eject when done CDs upon insert which may or may not be what you are looking for. Nifty.

Incidentally, a little bird told me that. ;)

iTunes 3 and LAME encoder
Authored by: rv8 on Oct 04, '02 09:09:13AM

There is an Apple Script available that lets you use iTune as a GUI front-end to the LAME encoder. The album, track name and genre get sent to LAME so they are put in ID3 tags, and the encoded song gets automatically added to the iTunes Library. I've been playing with this the last few days, and it works great, once I tracked down a bug. See:

Note - there may still be a bug in this script, or maybe it has been fixed. "There seems to be a glitch in this script, at least when using OS X 10.1.5. Line 271, in the "on makeTrackCommands" section, has a space after the word "Track" that must be escaped. "/Volumes/Audio\\ CD/Track " should be changed to "/Volumes/Audio\\ CD/Track\\ ". The script worked great once I fixed this glitch."
