I am trying to create an AppleScript capable of making QuickTime Pro open a movie, save it as mov and import it as a tv show into iTunes.
My script can already do this, except when I try to import H264 MKV files. The reason is that when I ask QuickTime to load:
tell application "QuickTime Player" open thisItem set movieLoc to exportFolder & ":Converted:" & exportPrefix & ".mov" if (can export front document as QuickTime movie) then save self contained front document in movieLoc else display dialog "QuickTime is not able to convert this file: " & (get name of (info for thisItem without size)) buttons "Ok" default button 1 with icon caution end if close front document end tell
it will open the file and immediately try to convert the file which will fail since it takes QuickTime a minute or two to actually be able to play the file. So my real question is: Is there a way to know when QuickTime has finished loading the MKV file ? and then initiate the conversion ?
