A method with smaller files
Authored by: wacko42 on Oct 17, '05 08:25:33AM

I started using this method, then found another that uses smaller files.

I open the avi in Quicktime (Pro natch), then export as a Quicktime media link file. iTunes doesn't seem to recognize the resulting file until I change the extension on the resulting file from qtl to mov. I can then drag it it into the Library and use it exactly the same as a reference file. My files so far are only about 4kb (or less). There may be a hidden "gotcha" though that I've not come across.

Yes! I was resigned to coding all my AVI clips into h264 or something, but I tried the second method here and it works! Also supports playcounts, which is the most important thing for me. Lovely. I'm working on an Automator/Applescript solution and I'll post it here if I can get it to work.
