Using Quick Look from the Command Line
Authored by: DougAdams on Jul 15, '10 08:09:15AM
With regard to Leopard auto-playing media files that I mentioned above: for an AppleScript I just added a dummy item like so:
do shell script "qlmanage -p " & quoted form of POSIX path of aPath & " dummy >& /dev/null &"
In Leopard, this presents a QL window with previous and next arrows, and no auto-play. Of course, the "next" item is a blank display. Also, I've posted a script that will QL selected iTunes tracks. Works great with viewing PDFs from within iTunes--no Preview necessary! See Have a Quick Look.
