Dear All,


I have a number of videos, a rather.. large number.


I would like to organize them by video resolution into three folders, 1080p, 720p, and others


I could drag and drop meself by that would take rather... long.


anyone know a way to perform this using automator?

    This is not possible with Automator without script.


    If Quicktime read these videos, you can use this AppleScript script:


    -- *** 3 destination folders *** 
    -- from the Finder drap/drop a folder between double quotes in each line
    set dest1 to (POSIX file "") as alias --<-- 1080p video folder
    set dest2 to (POSIX file "") as alias --<-- 720p video folder
    set dest3 to (POSIX file "") as alias --<-- others video
    set sourceFolder to (choose folder with prompt "Select a folder wich contains videos.")
    tell application "System Events"
        repeat with tFile in (get files of sourceFolder)
                set w to item 1 of (get dimensions of (first track of movie file (path of tFile) whose its duration is not {0, 0, 0, 0}))
                if w > 1079 then
                    move tFile to dest1
                else if w > 719 then
                    move tFile to dest2
                    move tFile to dest3
                end if
            end try
        end repeat
    end tell
