comment Mounting Encrypted Core Storage Volume(s) On Startup
Thanks for the response! The script has some useful pieces within it, but it looks like the important part is actually just setting unlock as an allowed app in the keychain entry. I wonder if the same thing could be achieved simply by allowing diskutil to access the password entry, and then call it with the -recoverykeychain option pointing to the system keychain? Seems like that might be all unlock really does, albeit with some automated setup.

comment iTunes 12 Won't Play MP4 Files That Work in Quicktime Player
Turns out the issue has something to do with certain audio formats, specifically AC3 and DTS audio in .mp4 files; Quicktime Player will play them, but iTunes won't (or rather, it tries to and fails). Re-encoding the audio into AAC fixes the problem, but it doesn't explain why one works and the other doesn't. Anyway, not sure if I should update that as the answer, or if I should close the issue instead.

comment Find All MP4 Files With DTS or AC3/A52 Audio?
Thanks for the help, I should have known it'd be something the ffmpeg toolbox! Just a note, I managed to simplify the command to not require jq with the following change: ffprobe -v quiet -show_streams -select_streams a -show_entries stream=codec_name "$file" | grep -F 'codec_name' | sed 's/^.*=//'; output should be checked in case it returns multiple lines (more than one audio stream) but should be able to handle cases where the audio isn't stream 0.
