    is there any way I can set up my mac so that when ever lets say I download a free video off a torrent that it is automatically converted to mp4 and put into itunes. Maybe like an automator visual hub script. Any suggestions would be appreciated

    The only one that I know of that comes close is called Convert Movie for iPod

    You may want to check Doug's site if something else fits the bill.

    Update: I found this one too but it requires that you have Quicktime Pro. It's called Drop to Make M4V Movies

    thanks for the quick responses, the folder action idea sounds good, I could have all the videos downloaded to that folder then run a script (hopefully visual hub because its faster than quicktime in my experiences) to convert and add the video.

    EDIT: after some searching further I think I found what I was looking for on some random thread from here
