Re: Drag and drop droplets in workflows

Are you using the "Open Finder Items" action to open the files using
the audio converter app? I could be wrong, but I believe this will
simulate the drag-and-drop function to the converter app.

I think my problem is the application I'm trying to do my audio
What I want to happen is this:
I paste an audiobook in a folder.
The mac waits for it to be pasted, whether from a CD, external drive
or network share.
Once the file is complete, it launches an audio encoder to convert the
bitrate to either something I set in a command line parameter or
something I set every time the conversion happens.
It then deletes the original file, and pastes the converted file in
some other folder for moving to my phone, or wherever I want to put
Right now, my workflow waits for the file to be complete, then it does
open the application, Drop A Few My Way. But every time this
application opens, it says "This is a droplet. Drop audio files on
this droplet's icon to convert them." And there's an OK button. I've
tried just setting this application as a folder action, and I've tried
chaining it in a workflow after the wait for files to finish action I
found online. Either way, I get that same dialog.
I think I'm going to have to find some other way of converting my
audio because this droplet just won't work.
