Quicksilver scripts for tagging iTunes songs, creating playlists

David Chartier

A MacOSXHints reader has put together an interesting set of Quicksilver scripts that will allow you to both easily tag your iTunes music as it is playing, and create on-the-fly playlists based on these tags. The way they work is simple: while music is playing in iTunes, you can use Quicksilver's text abilities to easily add tags to the music file's comments section. The beauty here is that tags are prefixed with an asterisk (*), and they are appended to anything that might already be in the song's comments field, preserving what you might already have added. The second script allows you to create an iTunes playlist right from Quicksilver based on any of your tags.

I haven't gotten to test these out yet, but the download includes detailed instructions from the author's site.
