I'd like to be able, without much hassle, add a video to my Miro Download-queue.

From bash I can do this by entering

open -a Miro.app http://vimeo.com/24398084

Now I'd like to do this from within Firefox, preferrably a one-click approach. Is there a firefox addon I could use? Some automator mechanism I could trigger?

You could create an automator service like this:

enter image description here

The service receives no input. It gets the URL of the current page in Safari, and passes it as the argument to open -a Miro.app.

You could then assign it a keyboard shortcut, et voilà.

  • +1 but can you use Firefox in automator to do this?

  • @macaco If you're willing to use two keystrokes, then yes. Service receives selected text in any application. Then drop the first action. To invoke, press Command-L then the shortcut for the service.
