Download trailers from apple [script]


Last month I bought a box media player and I filled with I bunch of movies that were stuck in my laptop. I realized that if a invite my friends to watch a movie, it would be nice to have the trailer so I don’t have to tell them what’s the movie is about.

So I wrote this little script which given a movie name or a file with a list of names, it will search for it and download to the current directory.

All trailers will be downloaded from http://www.apple.com/trailers but the links are provided by http://www.hd-trailers.net/

what you need:

Python
Wget

if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()

source

to run the script first you have to give permission

$ chmod +x ./trailerDownloader.py

to run you have 2 options:
1) if you want to download only one trailer, the script will ask you for the name.
./trailerDownloader.py

2)if you want to download more than you.
$ ./trailerDownloader.py listOfMovies.txt

Feel free to improve the script, and please let me know so I can update here.

And of course, use it at your own risk
