well, I already know that. I made movie extractor used by automator on mac os x.captainvideo said:Music videos are free. Not $1.99 a piece. Free. Who says so? AOL, and everyone except Apple.
Here is how to get free music videos for your iPod. On a Mac, follow these steps exactly.
1. Using the Safari web browser, go to Music.aol.com and select the Videos tab.
2. Locate, but do not select, any video from the site's bigger-than-iTunes Music Store collection of videos.
3. From the "Window" menu at the top of your screen, open both Downloads and Activity windows. Make sure Activity is easy to find on your screen at all times.
4. Go to the AOL Music window and click on the video you want to download.
5. A new window will open on your screen with "AOL Video" in the top left corner. 90% of the time a Quicktime movie will appear on the left side of this window.
6. From the "View" menu at the top of your screen, select "View Source."
7. Scroll down to the bottom of the text window that opens up, then search upwards from the bottom until you find a .MOV file. Or you can use the "Find" command (Command-F) to search for .MOV.
8. Select the entire .MOV filename of the music video. It will look like "h tt p://progr essive.stream.aol.com/aol/us/aolmusic/art ists/universal/blackeyedpeas/blackey edpeas_heymama_80048_dl.mov".
9. Open a new Safari window (Command-N) and paste the URL into this window.
10. Look at the Activity window. You will see the same URL appear there, as a http: phrase. Hold down the Option button on your keyboard and click two times quickly on the URL in the Activity window. This will download the music video to your computer. You will notice that many of the videos are the exact same quality as the ones Apple is selling for $1.99.
11. Repeat steps 4-10 for every video you want.
12. Download and install PSPWare for Mac OS X.
13. Open PSPWare's Movies tab.
14. From within that window, choose Options. Make sure Video Resolution is set to 320x240 (4:3) and both video and audio quality are set to high. Close the window.
15. Use the + sign at the bottom of the Movies tab to select each of the videos you have downloaded from AOL. Once selected, PSPWare will automatically convert each of them to iPod format. This will take time, so download a huge bunch of videos and then leave them encoding overnight.
16. Go to the Mac OS X Finder and hit Command-F to Find a file. Search for M4V00001. Inside the folder, you will find all of your music videos in iPod format.
17. Copy the videos to iTunes, then copy them to the iPod.
yep i got it working. so now just waiting for a way to convert these downloaded music video files...JMG said:here it is anyway:
actually all you need is firefox and the user switcher.
Once you have the switcher download the agents here:
Then use the user agent options to import the xml file.
You might have to ad the user agent button to your toolbar. Just right click th etoolbar and click customize and drag the button over.
On movies.aol.com you should switch your user agent to any safari or netscape agent on Mac.. like Safari 85 (Mac OSX). Then when you go to the aol site you will get the quicktime version of the video. Just right click the screen and view page source. Find the .mov and use a downloading program like NetTransport to download the stream. Just copy the file location and enter it into nettransport. Works perfectly.
