Hi All,

iTSfv iTunes Store file validator is an add-in for iTunes. It is aimed for iTunes users who are keen on maintaining or having the goal of achieving iTunes Store file standard tags for all the tracks in their iTunes Music Library.

iTSfv has many number of visible and hidden features.

Fill Track Count, Disc Number and Disc Count
Fill AlbumArtist from Artist tag
Add Artwork from explorer to tracks without embedded artwork
Copy Folder.jpg to album folders
Backup and restore play count and ratings
Report tracks with missing tags (Artwork, Track Number, Lyrics etc.)
Capitalize each word of tag and rename file accordingly
Add new tracks to library (manually or by automatically monitoring)
Delete unreferenced tracks from library

Digg edit:

If you would like others to know about this add-on then please Digg it from

Note: The title of the digg article - It is not my interpretation of the software but one of the users': http://wakoopa.com/software/itunes-store-file-validator. I thought it sounded nice and grabs attention which is really essentially in digg. biggrin.gif

EDIT : Forget about this post, I think I've finally begun to made it work - silly me !!! tongue.gif

Hi, it's me again. I'm currently trying the "Import artwork to track from Artwork.jpg" thing, but I just can't make it work.

I have in the same folder a MP3 and the corresponding "Artist - (Year) Album.jpg" artwork.
Of course I have checked in iTSfv (F2) that the "Import artwork in album folder from" is set to "%Artist% - (%Year%) %Album%.jpg".
I have also checked that the "Validate > Tracks > "Import artwork to track from Artwork.jpg" checkbox is checked.
Then I click on "Validate selected tracks", iTSfv seems to do its job but... nothing happens ! I don't see any new artwork in iTunes, and all my MP3 remain untouched (no artwork embedded).

I have tried several times, so I don't understand what's wrong.

Thanks in advance for your help. smile.gif

Jose

Well, I guess one part of my problem was that my jpgs didn't have exactly the "Artist - (Year) Album" syntax, so iTSfv didn't recognize them.

I think maybe you should add one option where iTSfv automatically recognizes a jpg inside the mp3 folder, (provided it's the only jpg in that folder) and appends it to the mp3 regardless of the jpg name. So no more hassle naming jpgs exactly as iTSfv wants : if you have a jpg next to the mp3, then iTSfv will find it and append it. What do you think ? wink.gif
