comment Can Applescript be used to automate a screen recording session on OS X?
Looks nice, I'll give it a try. I ended up going back to iShowU HD because it allows me to crop to a specific area of the screen for my recording. Do you know if QuickTime allows this?

comment Can Applescript be used to automate a screen recording session on OS X?
It doesn't necessarily have to be applescript, it just has to be something that can be called from code. My application is written in ruby and makes a system call to /usr/bin/osascript whenever I need to access the applescript layer.

The save button didn't appear to do anything for me either. You're probably correct about the functionality being removed. Unfortunately I cannot close the window manually, the entire process from end to end has to be automated.

Another 10.8 note: My screen recordings don't automatically get saved under ~/Movies.

Might be because I'm on 10.8 then (should have put that in the description, my bad). I could hard code a delay, but that feels dirty to me. Some videos could take a lot longer to export than others, so I'd be playing a guessing game.

Ok, I was able to get the export line to work thanks to your insight. Now I have another issue: It looks like Applescript does not wait for the export line to complete before moving on to the next line. If I close the recording window before the export is finished, it fails. So I guess somehow I need to figure out how long an export will take, delay that amount, then close the window.

comment Is there a way to determine what application wants Java installed?
I would also like to know the answer to this question. One of our macs keeps getting the Java prompt, and I'd like to know what application is responsible before (reluctantly) accepting the installation.

As for mailing lists, I guess those of us who have never used a mailing list find these types of forums a little more approachable. I'll try the mailing list next time though!

Awesome, thanks! Now I'm working through some zlib and tuntap issues. Will see how far I get. Do you have any idea as to why zlib would not be found?
