A shell command to save iTunes Music Store videos
Authored by: admford on Apr 06, '05 08:19:28PM

Ok, there's a real simple way to get around this new problem with iTunes. The videos are saved in Quicktime's cache (if it's activated from the System Preferences Menu).

The folder these videos are saved in is "/tmp/501/". In Finder, just go to the "Go" menu, and then "Go to folder". Put in /tmp/501/ in the window and press enter. Then go to the "TemporaryItems" folder. In this folder you have a number of files, of those look for ones with names like "QTPluginTempxxxxxxxx", where the x represents numbers. The file with the highest number is the one you're looking for, since it's the last opened file in Quicktime. Just open this file with quicktime, and select "Save As", put in the name you want, and check the "make movie self contained" box, and you've got yourself a new music video.
