iTunes Key Utility v2.0 [Watch Movie Rentals for 30 Days]
Added On: 27th May 09
Since the launch of the itunes movie rental section many users have complained about the short 24 period to watch a movie after one has bought and started watching it. Fortunately I have found a way to extend the life of your itunes movie rentals to a full 30 days, rather than that measly 24 hours allotted by default. To use just download the Applescript. Be sure to read the instructions before using. This is an update to a similar script I uploaded before.
Changes From v1.0 to v2.0
-changed backup directory so no longer need admin access
-removed the “run script prompt”
-there is now only one script rather than two
[A note to apple’s lawyers, this script is completly legal as it executes just a simple file copy operation and does not hack or modify the itunes application in any way. In addition it does NOT prevent the rental from expiring it just gives users a much more reasonable time to watch their movie. After all when one rents a movie from Nexflix they can keep it as long as they want until they return it for a new one. Why should iTunes users have to rush though their rented movie?]
