    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...

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

    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?

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