fallenidol: How to download trailers from the Apple site WITHOUT Quicktime PRO
I saw this in my delicious feed. It looks similar to what I did for my This Mobile Life greasemonkey script.
Perhaps I can automate this a little for people. It may be possible to make a GM_XmlHttpRequest on the file linked, determine if it has a *.mov string in it and then change the link. What you want to avoid is downloading a whole .mov file just to check it! Not sure if greasemonkey can do that.
If you want me to look into it, let me know.
Life hacker posted a recommendation about a new service: SiteAdvisor web site tester – Lifehacker. I got a gawker login and commented recommending people look into OutFoxed instead.
A dedicated group of professionals can only catch what they are aware of. A well designed piece of social software turns all users into producers of information as well as consumers, the info produced is exactly the information most desired by consumers. And outfoxed is very well designed. Do check it out. If you’ve already got OutFoxed installed, I’m snarkhunt. You could add me as as a trusted referrer – I wouldn’t steer you wrong.
