QuickTime Volume Control Script - Quit shouting already!
Safari - Give Me More Screen
QuickTime Volume Control Script
Apple seems to have forgotten to add a system wide volume setting control for Quicktime. The result is every time a Quicktime movie is opened, it plays at maximum volume. This is annoying to say the least. Here's an Apple script to fix that issue.
This script runs continuously, checking every second for a quicktime movie that has just started. It does not run when the system is idle (screen saver active). It sleeps between checks and does not seem to bog down the system. You can add it to your login items so it always starts up.
repeat tell application "System Events" do shell script "sleep 1" --run every sec set frontProc to name of every process -- get name of active application if frontProc contains "QuickTime Player" and frontProc does not contain "ScreenSaverEngine" then -- not idle tell application "QuickTime Player" if (count of movie) > 0 then repeat with i from 1 to count of movie if current time of movie i < 5000 then --just started set sound volume of movie i to 128 --half volume end if end repeat end if end tell end if end tell end repeat
Safari - Go Full Screen
It seems that Apple forgot to give Safari a full screen option to dedicate all available real estate to the page you're on. Here's a script that you can assign to a hot key via FastScripts. Feel free to modify it if you don't normally have the status bar on.
tell application "Safari" to activate tell application "System Events" tell application process "Safari" tell menu bar 1 tell menu bar item "View" --was safari tell menu "View" set s to name of menu item 4 if s = "Hide Bookmarks Bar" or s = "Show Bookmarks Bar" then click menu item 4 end if set s to name of menu item 5 if s = "Hide Status Bar" or s = "Show Status Bar" then click menu item 5 end if set s to name of menu item 1 if s = "Hide Address Bar" or s = "Show Address Bar" then click menu item 1 end if end tell end tell end tell end tell end tell end tell
