View Silver Screen Media on Your Apple TV from another Disk

Want to watch movies via Silver Screen that aren't in your Movies folder? Just create an alias in your Movies directory and select that as your Media Directory in Silver Screen's preferences. It will even be automatically mounted if needed when the folder is browsed in Silver Screen. To make the alias, mount the server or other disk in the Finder, locate the folder containing the movies and Command-Option-drag the folder's icon into your Movies directory.

VSE Link Tester 3.1 and Wet Noodles

VSE Link Tester 3.1 and Wet Noodles -- In last week's issue, we mentioned VSE Link Tester 3.0, an upgrade to the utility for verifying Web site links (see "Tools We Use: Link Tester" in TidBITS-537 for an overview of the program). Unfortunately, we mis-identified it as "VSE Link Checker," an ironic gaffe considering our Managing Editor's failure to do his own checking. Rest assured, Jeff has been cooking up a large pot of wet noodles for self-flagellation due to the mistake. In the meantime, VSE has released VSE Link Tester 3.1, an update that can pose as 24 user agents for dealing with browser-specific versions of Web pages. The update (a 1.7 MB download) also fixes a handful of bugs and display glitches. [JLC]
