    Is it possible to automatically set in a Finder window the color label on a music file according to its iTunes rating?

    I tried Automator but there's no instruction to read iTunes ratings. Then I tried noodlesoft Hazel which, has a "Rating" rule and the option to change and set color labels but it didn't do it. I run another rule in Hazel to check if it's working and it does.

    Thanks

    Workaround: apparently I could change a song's genre in iTunes and interpret it as a "rating" in Hazel. But it isn't practical.

    interesting idea.
    where is the color label? in the metadata of the mp3/aac/wav/aiff? or in another piece of software like serato/traktor etc?

    Edited above. I'm interested having the color label shown in Finder. Just like regular labels.
