NEW: Search IMDB

Search IMDB allows you to choose a search term from the pertinent tags of a selected iTunes track and then choose the type of search to make at the IMDB website.

Results are displayed in your designated default browser using a Finder routine. Most web browsers are not 'scriptable which somewhat limits what you can do with them with AppleScript.

And, what the heck. Here's a Rotten Tomatoes script I use on my "entertainment center" Mac Mini that uses the name of the selected track for a search:

tell application "iTunes"

set sel to selection

if sel is not {} and (length of sel) is 1 then

my processSearch(get name of item 1 of sel)

end if

end tell

to processSearch(n)

try

tell application "Finder" to open location ("http://www.rottentomatoes.com/search/?sitesearch=rt&search=" & n) as text

end try

end processSearch
