As I was trying to kill time, I was researching Quicksilver extendability other than just quick-launching apps. Yes, I know Spotlight does it from the get-go.
My search led to a Lifehacker.com article (as usual, with this kind of things) written a while back about Gina Trapani’s Top 10 Quicksilver Plugins (at the time: November 2007). One of the plugins that intrigued me to check out was the Shelf module/plugin.
Rather than writing about what I learned, I figured I might as well show you. It was just convenient timing as I was checking out how to do screencasts—which are getting better and cooler with today’s technology. I happened to be testing out ScreenFlow, which has a nice UI a la Adobe Premiere/Flash (though its been ages using Premiere).
I had set my ScreenFlow recording with the setting to “Record Computer Audio”. I then checked out to listen to Cerritos All Stars’ Live Mix Show on iTunes. It happened to be that they were rebroadcasting a show a couple of weeks back, when the Lakers were still playing Orlando. As soon as I hit the record button, Randy Newman’s “I Love L.A.” came on haha… But as soon as I got it uploaded and processed on Youtube, I got hit by a WMG note:
This video contains an audio track that has not been authorized by WMG. The audio has been disabled.
So I was onto Youtube’s audio library, and settled on A Mi Que’ by The Occasion—never heard of them but the track sounded nice and chill.1
More tips on using the Shelf plugin here.
- There might be no audio of the bat as YouTube is still processing my request for the AudioSwap, so stay tuned if you’d like to hear it. [↩]
- Anyone else like saying that phrase? Makes you sound sophisticated… like Mr. Bentley(?). [↩]
- The process of this screencast was easy to my surprise. I just used the basic features of ScreenFlow. Not bad at all. I’ll play around with it more in the future when there is more time. [↩]
