Change video kind and video related tags of selected video tracks

OS X 10.8 or later. This script will change the video kind property of the selected tracks to your choice of "Home Video", "Movie", "Music Video" or "TV Show". Additionally, "Show Name", "Season Number", and incremental "Episode Number" can also be set or cleared for each selected track.

Protected files, such as those purchased from the iTunes Store, cannot be changed.

WARNING: a possible bug in iTunes 12.4.1 and later prevents this script from working. Until Apple confirms and/or addresses this issue, I do not recommend using this script.

Action shot:

Set Video Kind of Selected in action

Enter information for the tags. When you are satisfied with your entries, click the OK button and the changes will be applied to the selected un-protected video tracks.
