    What a great Automator script (and Applescript)... working perfectly!

    I thought the comment about importing the movie to iTunes and then ripping it as an AAC was interesting... although I haven't tried it.

    Works well. I just had a brainstorm. What if it could check the name of the artist and album and track name that the video is for, tag it correctly and stick it in iTunes? Now THAT would be cool. A would defeat the purpose of buying music videos from iTMS. But uh... IT'S FREE!

    I tried it earlier today and it's still working.

    One thing I have noticed. It downloads them all as dj.vvarjtnx.mov

    I think it only works with QT Pro though

    I followed the instructions and filled everything out on my own, then at the bottom of the page, I noticed that you could download the script without having to do anything.
