View Full Version : [SOLVED] Download Apple Trailers

October 27th, 2009, 04:38 PM
Here is the way to download apple trailers to watch offline with VLC ;)

Add this following code in .bashrc or .bash_alias files.

# Download Apple Trailers
alias qdl='wget -U QuickTime/7.6.4 '

( you can also change the version from 7.6.4, to newer one when its out)

Then use it like this;

qdl http://movies.apple.com/movies/lionsgate/saw6/sawvi_h480p.mov

Note: The original link was without "h" in front of the 480p. You need to add that manually ;)

Here is the original trailer link;

Most of the trailers downloading very quick from 250kps up to 1mbps depending on your internet connection speed ;)

If I write a better function for this, I will post it here ;) Enjoy.

Getting close...

From http://linuxtidbits.wordpress.com/2009/08/30/download-apple-trailer-fix/

# atget - download trailers from Apple website

# Usage if no parameters given
if [ -z $@ ]; then
echo " atget <apple-trailer-url>"; exit

# Prepend 'h' before resolution to create a valid url
newurl=$(echo $@ | sed 's/_\([0-9]*[0-9][0-9][0-9]\)p.mov/_h\1p.mov/g')

# Change 'http://movies.apple.com/movies/' to 'http://www.apple.com/movies/' to create a valid url

# Download trailer and save to the desktop
wget -U QuickTime/7.6.2 "$newurl" -O $HOME/Desktop/${@##*/}Now if only i knew regex

No longer works.

Any ideas? I tried faking referer even but no luck.

I tried both of these:

wget -U QuickTime/7.6.2 --referer=http://www.apple.com/trailers/lions_gate/sawvi/hd/ http://movies.apple.com/movies/lionsgate/saw6/sawvi_h480p.mov

wget -U QuickTime/7.6.2 --referer=http://www.apple.com/trailers/lions_gate/sawvi/hd/ http://movies.apple.com/movies/lionsgate/saw6/sawvi_480p.movResult was it downloading the html index page. :(
