Compressor2Attachment Applescript

I’ve always been intrigued by the option in Compressor to run an AppleScript when the Compression is done. It seems so full of possibilities.

Yet it doesn’t seem like it’s used very often. In searching the web, it was hard to find any good uses for this function. So, I decided to try and see what I could make.

So I’m happy to announce the release of Compressor2Attachment version 1.0. It will take your freshly compressed file and email it as an attachment to whoever you wish, automatically, and without any help from you.

Well, it will take some set up. One of my goals for this is to get more people working on this, and seeing how easy it actually is to make something that will make your work a lot simpler. So to set it up, you’ll need to get into Script Editor and make some changes. But don’t worry, they’ll be very simple ones, and hopefully explained in the Script notes.

So download by clicking here: Compressor2Attachment.dmg.

I would love your feedback on how to make it more helpful, or ideas for other helpful scripts to run from Compressor.

Notes: This has not been extensively tested. I know that it works with single files on Leopard. You will need to have your Mail set up, as it sends it through your default account. Please test it for yourself before using it for anything important. If you do not edit the script and change the recipient’s email address, you will receive an email response reminding you to do so.

    You could also use Automator as a Folder Action – as soon as the encoded files are in the folder, a script runs (email, FTP, etc.). Compressor’s own gateways seem pretty limited.
