I love most things about Macs, but I completely freaking hate Applescript. I’ve been trying to add to get_enclosures functionality someone had suggested, the ability to add the URLs from an RSS enclosure feed to a playlist as something to stream rather than download. That sounds simple enough, but after 30 minutes of farting around and reading the barely existent documentation I cannot figure out how to take the URL that I have, and add it to a playlist as a streaming entry. There is some magic syntax that I haven’t yet stumbled upon. I’ve been a professional programmer for most of a decade now, and trying to use the “user friendly” AppleScript language consistently drives me completely bonkers.
If any of you out there know how to do this, please throw me a bone and either email me or leave me the snippet in a comment. I have the URL, I have the playlist name, I just want this thing to be a streaming URL in that playlist. Note too that I’m not wanting to start it immediately, but have the entry added to the list.
