Rate iTunes songs on a wider scale
Authored by: cchristner on Feb 02, '05 11:40:59AM

Hi,

If it'll save you time, here's what I do to save ratings to Comments:

1. Set the Library to display on Ratings

2. Select all songs of the same rating and drag them into a playlist (not a smart playlist)

3. Run an iTunes applescript called (I believe) Append to Comments to add a unique rating to the comments field. I'm on a Mac, so for a 5-star song (for example) I use the code 5 then five apple characters (option + shift + k) and another 5 (i.e., 5*****5).

4. Later, if I need to restore my ratings for some reason, there's another AppleScript that'll search comments and put the found items in a playlist.

Works well and the scripts can be found at http://www.malcolmadams.com/itunes/index.php.
