5. AppleScript for iTunes > 91. Make Files Bookmarkable

Make Files Bookmarkable

Change the file type of your imported AAC files to make them bookmarkable.

If you make your AAC tracks bookmarkable, they will start playing right where you left off last. This simple hack makes any selected AAC files bookmarkable.

Tip

This hack works only on AAC files you have imported yourself. It does not work on protected AAC files purchased from the iTunes Music Store.

The Code

This script gets the locationproperty of each selected track and, if the track is an AAC file, uses the locationin a Finder routine that changes the file type of the file to M4B.

Tip

This is not the same as changing the extension of the file. The file type is an internal property of the file.
