Copy Rating Stars to Other Tag v1.1

This script will convert the rating value (0-100) of a track to the appropriate number of stars as Unicode text and copy that text to the Composer, Grouping or Comments tag, with additional options to copy to the start or end of extant Comments text.
This text will "travel" with the audio file, unlike the actual rating value.

Action shot:

Copy Rating Stars to Other Tag in action

Choose where to copy the rating after it is converted to Unicode text stars.

Re-Embed Artwork v2.7

This script will export then re-import the artwork data of the selected tracks obliging iTunes to embed the artwork in the track's file's meta-data.

For best results, use with an album's worth of tracks--or so--at a time. iTunes may be obliged to perform a number of background tasks when applying image data and may prevent the script from proceeding if a large amount of data is involved.

Note: this app does not affect how the Finder may or may not display a file's icon image.

Search Wikipedia v2.4

For macOS 10.12 and later only. Performs a "Go" search of Wikipedia (like Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky") in your default browser using the Song Name, Album, Artist, or Composer tag of the single selected or currently playing iTunes track. OR if a radio stream is currently playing and the provider has formatted the stream title correctly, such that Artist - Song Name is displayed, the script will do a Wikipedia search for the Artist name.

Action shot:

Search Wikipedia in action

Select which tag of the selected or playing track you want to look up on Wikipedia.

Track CPR v2.8

For macOS 10.12 and later. This script will assist with associating replacement files with a batch of dead tracks. iTunes can perform this task, too, but only one track at a time.

The script will attempt to locate existing files (recursively) in a user-selected folder that have the exact same filenames and extensions as the missing files of a selection of dead tracks. Then, you can determine if the found files are viable replacements for the missing files and the script will perform the replacement. Replacement files remain in their current location and will not be copied/moved to the iTunes Media folder.

This can be a delicate operation. In addition to the must-read documentation included with the script, I also suggest you read what I've written about using this script here.

Action shot:

Track CPR in action

Checkmarked tracks will have CPR applied. (Additional screenshots are in the read-me PDF.)
