These machines have very little RAM, no disk drives, and flash memory instead of a hard drive. I doubt OS X would even run on them. And don't expect to see a pretty Aqua interface on an 8-bit black & white "e-ink" screen. It was nice of Apple to offer, but Linux is free and open source and will do just fine for the purposes of the organization. As mentioned before, no one's stopping them from releasing a free version of OSx86 to developing nations if they want to do so...
If that's true then Apple better get moving on higher-res videos!
Just glancing at Automater, it doesn't look like there are any functions for saving reference movies in Quicktime, but I bet you could do this with plain AppleScript if you have some time to search around...
BTW, here's a hack in case you don't want to transcode all that video... http://www.macosxhints.com/article.p...51013124423475
Guys guys guys... YOU CAN PUT YOUR OWN CONTENT ON THE IPOD!!! The same way you can rip your own CDs to AAC, you can rip DVDs to MP4 (although not with iTunes, unfortunately) or transcode other formats to MPEG-4. To rip DVDs: http://diveintomark.org/howto/ipod-dvd-ripping-guide/ To transcode content: http://diveintomark.org/howto/ipod-p...version-guide/ You're welcome.
In Firefox prefs you can go to the Content tab and uncheck "Enable Javascript" (although this will disable most of the functionality of Gmail), or click the Advanced button and uncheck "Raise or lower windows" which should kill the focus-changing scripts. The code itself if pretty simple: window.self.focus(); - which, as you can guess, gives focus to the current window.
.mp4 (either standard MPEG-4 or H.264) You can use something like ffmpegx or Quicktime Pro to transcode it.
A lot of it has to do with Darwin's kernal design; I bet the kernal + all neccessary processes don't use any more memory than Linux or Windows, there's just more of them.
If you have the Divx plugin for Quicktime, I think "Export" method above will work, but ffmpegx is another way to go.... As for the original question: I was able to try this with one of the HD trailers on Apple's site and the audio came out fine.
The easier way would be to download Handbrake and follow these steps:http://diveintomark.org/howto/ipod-dvd-ripping-guide/
