UPDATED: Refresh Smart Playlists v3.4

For macOS 11 and later only. This script will "batch-refresh" the selected user-created Smart Playlists by removing the tracks they contain (if possible*) which obliges them to dynamically re-populate, ostensibly with different tracks.

*Note that tracks cannot be removed from a Smart Playlist which already contains every track of the library meeting its criteria--it would just re-populate with the same tracks. Smart Playlists with the "Limit to" and "Live updating" criteria in use are more likely to be "refreshable".

Latest version:

  • Prevents errant selection of Playlist Folders
  • Additional accommodations for macOS 11.3

UPDATED: File Renamer v4.9

For macOS 11 and later only. This script will rename the files of the selected tracks (or the files of the tracks in the selected playlist) using a substitution pattern that you formulate from the tracks' tag data. Optionally, export a copy of the files to a chosen location and rename the files in that location.

Works optimally with "Keep Media folder organized" un-checked.

Latest version:

  • New logic for previewing/processing
  • Additional accommodations for macOS 11.3

More information for File Renamer v4.9 and download link is here.

If multiple album tracks are selected, the script will make sure only one artwork file per Album is exported.
