iTunes workflow to search comments field

Recommended Posts

There's many great iTunes workflows but I've yet to find one that search comments field. 


Due to ever expanding music styles and sub-genres I've resorted to adding my own tags to the Comments field.  I usually add single words for moods or sub-genres and for the bigger/general descriptors I'll add an x to the end, like bluesx or dubx which gives me accurate search results with very few false positives.  How can I do this?

Dunno. Open Terminal and run mdls /your/song.mp3 (where "/your/song.mp3" is the path to your media file) to see the file metadata.
You'll see the field names and their values. Check if there's a field that corresponds to the iTunes data you're after and add that to your File Filter.
