QuickTime 5.0.2 offers enhanced support for AppleScript and Apple has released a
QuickTime 5.0.2 Scripts Collection to take advantage of this capability.
Described as a collection of script applets, droplets and compiled scripts for use with OSA Menu, the series provides both pros and novices with 36 different droplets and 100 different scripts to accomplish various tasks with QuickTime Player and AppleScript. All scripts are editable and have properties that can be changed.
Scripts included provide a wide range of functionality, including conversion functions, duplication, browsing and annotation functions, changes to navigation functionality, the ability to change play characteristics, and much more.
Apple notes that these scripts have been developed to work on QuickTime 5.0.2 released yesterday, and may not work with earlier versions of QuickTime. Some scripts also rely on features in Mac OS 8.5 and higher.
Mac OS X users are left out of the loop with this release, as well — Apple said the scripts aren’t compatible with the new operating system. “An update of this collection will be available for Mac OS X 10.1 when it is released,” said Apple.
