    Hello,

    We are looking for a script for iTunes on windows XP.

    Something that will allow us to rename the media files on disk from the info in iTunes. And if possible the Artist and Album names aswell.

    Since we choose for .wav files we don't have an option for metadata included in the file. Now, we were wondering if we would use the Broadcast Wave format that includes metadata in the file. My guess is that iTunes doesn't support BWF?

    On the mac side i suppose there is something like this from http://dougscripts.com?

    Thanks for your time,

    Steve

    You are correct about BWF not being supported in iTunes. I've never even heard of that format before I saw your post. Also, I should alert you that changing the file name of a track in iTunes, by whatever method, will break the link between iTunes's database and the underlying file structure (which of course means iTunes won't be able to find your music anymore).

    a friend of mine found this:

    http://www.twonkyvision.de/

    The TwonkyMedia is integrated with existing media management tools like Winamp, iTunes and Photoshop Album. It utilizes the metadata libraries of these tools. Playlists created with Winamp or the Windows Media Player can be imported by the MediaServer as well.

    Maybe that will do it...
