I know this is going to sound simple, but if you question my motives check the story at the bottom. I am trying to get an apple script to ask for input of a URL and then download to desktop whatever is at the URL. I have spent the last hour finding out automator has a way to download URLs but i can't find a way to pass the input to that. Story:I hate to do this but i am at wits end. I am a recent returner (and apple script is a lot more complicated than it was in os7 days) and some of our school's classes are online video (Univ of Florida Biz School) through a service that will only let you use IE. Every mac user i know is having trouble. I have found a way to download the videos (why doesn't mac IE have save target as?), and am looking for a quick script i can send out to people so they only need the URL and bam they have their econ lectures.
