Kiosk Mode
Authored by: cllcomputers on May 17, '04 12:19:57PM

I think that there is a way for apple to program the web pages (embedded in iTunes but also any website) for them to enable "Kiosk Mode" by page or by file - This removes the little downward arrow that lets you save the movies if you had QT Pro - In QuickTime Preferences in System Prefs, there is a checkbox labeled "Enable Kiosk Mode" which I think takes out the little Arrow, which apple has set a similar boolean switch somewhere in the code of the pages in iTMS containing music videos that does the same thing on a per-file basis.

If there were some kind of preference or resource hack that completely disables Kiosk Mode under all circumstances, you could save it as a quicktime movie directly, only if you have quicktime pro (or so I remember that way). I had purchased QT Pro awhile ago to do this on webpages, but also because I needed QT Pro for it's inteded features as well.

However, I noticed that on movie trailers, that arrow wasn't missing, even in iTMS. I think this is because Artists don't wan't their music videos "stolen" from iTMS but Movie producers don't care.

This hint's great! It works very well and even made a .command shell script and put it in my dock so I can quickly swipe any movie from iTunes.
