Sweet Hint!
Authored by: RichB on May 02, '04 06:20:41PM

Now I have saved the more efficient script (Safari and iTunes capable) as an AppleScript with the cool icon and it's available from the iTunes script menu. Thanks everyone. Sweet! :)

Going the next step I exported the movie from QuickTime Pro without the video and added it to my iTunes library. The 27 MB movie had a 3 MB audio track. With an extension of mp4 or mp3 it played but wouldn't allow artwork to be added. Making it m4p did allow artwork and it is a "Protected AAC" format but it seems without protection? Awesome!

OK, I see m4a is the proper file name extension instead of m4p!

You don't need Quicktime Pro to convert

An easier (or atleast cheaper) way to convert the Quicktime movie to audio is to drag it to you iTunes library and select "Convert selection to MP3" (or whatever you have configured from the Importing preferences) from the Advanced menu.

Safari Script
Authored by: Degheygh on Jun 26, '04 11:48:52AM

Yes, but where do you put it in Safari?
If the iTunes script works from the ~/Library/iTunes/Scripts folder, why can't it work the same way if I put the Safari script into the ~/Library/Safari/Scripts folder?
Do you know where it should go, so that Safari can have the script menu similar to iTunes?
