Ok I have known of AppleScripts for some time but have absolutely no idea how to write them. I have used a few scripts other people have written but still can’t do that whole programming thingy. I have a rather slow mac and I would like to automate the process of preloading videos into memory along with the sound as this seems to make videos run smoothly on my system, does any of you think this is possible? thanks in advance.
The only way that I know of to put something into ram is with what’s called a ram disk. It’s basically a disk image but ram is used for storage rather than space on your hard disk. Then you just copy something to the ram disk and it goes into memory. Here’s an article about creating ram disks.
Wow that was an awesome tutorial, but its not exactly what I was looking for hehe. I made some screenshots and highlighted where the option is found in quicktime, I think there should be a simpler way to do this rather than creating a “ram disk”.
hope this helps thanks for the reply.

Well that seems to have worked, is there some way that I can get all movies to open this application? or do I have to drop them all onto this application. If this isn’t possible no matter because this is still a major time saver for me thank you so much.
