Apologies for any really stupid questions - I’m an experienced coder in general, but virtually no experience with AppleScript (and only limited experience with OS X).
What I’d like to do is have a script which when run:
- opens a browser window and navigates to a particular website
- follows some of the links in that
- for each link, wait until the embedded video has fully loaded in Quicktime, then save the movie to a local file (I have QT Pro)
- close the browser
(1) and (4) I can probably work out. (2), less sure on, but probably doable (though I wouldn’t turn away suggestions for how to do it). I have no idea on (3) - all the AppleScript examples around seem to focus on the Quicktime application, rather than the plugin. How do I talk to the plugin as loaded by a browser? I don’t particularly mind if the browser’s Firefox, Safari, Opera, or anything - it just needs to work, that’s all.
(The page I’m trying to process is http://www.deafstation.org/deafstationDev/getAllPC.do?latestNews=1 if that helps people.)
Many thanks for any help!
