    Hi There,

    Can anybody help me and teach me how to edit the field 'description' for tv shows and movies items in itunes?.

    If I buy something from Itunes that field is filled, but if i have something imported from my library I didn't find yet a way to edit that field.
    I can edit 'comments' filed but not description...

    Thx

    Download MetaX and use it to add the description metadata in to your shows.

    I got MetaX but I really don't like it very much....so there's no other way to edit that field using only itunes?

    Hi Cordeiro,

    I wondered the same thing because I wanted to add the description for use in Front Row. However, I found that by adding to the comments field, this shows up in Front Row.

    As for the Description field, you can edit and add to this using QuickTime Player - Show Movie Properties (Apple-J). Then you can click on "Add annotation" and add a description field. However, strangely when you reload iTunes the description field is still left blank.

    Does anyone else know the answer to this?

    Thanks,

    :-Joe

    The script is great, but if you remove the film from the library the information is lost.
