Would it be appropriate to upload a video to the Macro Library, as an mp4, url or other format (in addition to uploading the image and macro) ?
Go ahead, 'make my day': ...Someone dare say "No."
(Gee, I hope people are familiar with that Clint Eastwood line...I'm just kidding (sorry ...bad joke)
Reason I ask: I just spent gads of hours writing 2 ridiculously long macros. (1) The first one is prep for the second. It opens Safari to all YouTube Videos of Handpan music posted on the internet (hundred of thousands of videos). And it's triggered by a click to a tiny icon floating on the desktop.
(2) The second macro downloads the vid as an mp4 file, stores & categorizes it in the folder of your choice, and opens it in Quick Time––and then plays the video in full screen mode (not from the Internet but) from the mp4 file sitting on your drive and in the process, it quits Safari. You wind up watching the vid you just downloaded to your computer. This second macro is also triggered by one click to a handpan icon, floating on the desktop. (I suppose the long name for this macro would be "Download YouTube Video, Store In A Folder, Quit Browser, Open The Video In QT and Play It In Full Screen Mode" (...shrug)
JimmyHartington - who recently posted the 'Download YouTube Macro' in the Macro Library - did the real work (I so much appreciate his macro - I've been wanting to do that for years...). I just expanded on his work
To be honest, I'm excited about what these macros can do. They're mostly KM but I make use of Butler (another OSX automator) as well. I hope to create a library of lovely music - and I can watch the musicians play their instruments in full screen mode - all with two clicks!). So, I figured, if I posted a short (10 or 15 second) vid, people can see the macros in action, what they actually do.
I tried searching the forum and couldn't find anything on it and so, I'll tentatively assume, it's a 'no-no.' I will of course post the macro itself.
(As a quick aside, as a rule, I don't read or participate in Internet forums, but I love this one. (I loved KM when it was a toddler and now, after a 10 or 15 year hiatus, I'm just as riveted... thank you to everyone for their amazing work...The work on this site makes me think, technology can be used for a greater good. It's inspiring! I look forward to a reply...(make may day...
