Itunes 4.7 music video workaround
Authored by: azfreakboy on Nov 19, '04 02:14:18AM

There is a workaround on itunes 4.7, it's a tad bit of work, but it lets you save the movie.

First thing make sure you have the quicktime cache turned on. Next you go to Itunes Music store and find the music video you want. go all the way to the point where it starts to load, only let it load for a second or two.

Next navigate to ~/library/caches/quicktime/downloads/

then organized the contents by date you will then find the most recent modified directory, under it there will be another numbered directory, and in that directory should be a new .qtch file.

Open that file with a text editor, textedit will work fine, in the first line of the file is a url that you can copy and paste into a web browser, i used firefox.

it will then download the .mov file perfectly and you can save it using the quicktime menu, or "file menu" save page as.

I won't be making a script to do this cause i am still learning even the basics when it comes to programing. but feel free to make one, i would love for this to be really easy to do.

have fun!

I've found the right .qtch file, opened it in TextEdit and in SubEthaEdit but... no URL is written in the file.
I think they've crypted it somewhere, but i cannot find it.
