+Some automator actions support encoding metadata as name/value pairs
+in the URL query string. This metadata will override any values
+input through the action's user interface. Reserved characters in a
+supplied value must be percent-encoded (see RFC 3986). Valid metadata
+tag names are:
+tagName, tagArtist, tagAlbumArtist, tagAlbum, tagGrouping, tagComposer,
+tagDescription, tagLongDescription, tagReleaseDate, tagTVShow,

+tagCopyright, tagEncodingTool, tagEncodedBy, tagPurchaseDate,
+tagKeywords, tagCategory, tagLyrics, tagComments, tagTempo,
+tagTVEpisodeNumber, tagTVSeasonNumber, tagCompilation, tagHDVideo,
+tagGaplessPlayback, tagGenre, tagContentRating, tagMediaType,
+tagTrackNumber, tagTrackTotal, tagDiscNumber, tagDiscTotal, tagArtwork
+tagGenre can be a number indicating any of the defined iTunes or ID3v1
+genres and a string can be used to indicate a custom genre.
+tagContentType must be a number: 0 - None; 2 - Clean; 4 - Explicit
+tagMediaType is a number or string indicating the media type: 0 - None;
+1 - Music; 2 - Audiobook; "pcst" - Podcast; "itnu" - iTunes U;

+tagArtwork should be a file URL for a BMP, JPEG, GIF, or PNG image that
