A better way to get cover art into iTunes database
Authored by: spl23 on Nov 01, '07 09:39:06AM

Since discovering this tip, I've been maintaining my iTunes library in 7.3, and importing to 7.4 every time I need to update my iPod. I got bored with this...

I spent an hour with a packet sniffer the other day, and managed to update the Python script to work with iTunes 7.4. I've sent a copy of my new version to Jacob (the original author) - hopefully he can amend the published version. I don't feel comfortable about simply releasing my new version, as I'm not the original author.

But if anyone out there knows Python and would like to hack their own script, there are two main changes. You need to add a response to the initiateSession command (just send the XML captured from a packet sniffer) and the search command sent by iTunes has changed very slightly - the response sent by the Python script is identical.
