Hello, can anyone please tell me how to make an Automator service which enables you to open a YouTube page which is already open in Safari in mplayer?  I have tried many ways but all of them have been fruitless up to this point.  Can someone please help me out with this?  Thanks.

      Hello, everyone.  Long time listener, first time caller.
      Here's what I'm setting out to do:  because I can no longer reliably receive a delivery of the New York Times for my daily crossword obsession, I'm now a subscriber to their digital crossword.  I still prefer to do the puzzle on paper, and fortunately the NYT offers a scale PDF of the puzzle each day.  I'm hoping to write a script (I'm incredibly new to this) to download the file and print it every day so that I can feel like I live in a future where magic robots deliver my crossword puzzle to my printer each morning.
      The file naming scheme is simplistic and consistent.  As an example, here's today's PDF location:
      Obviously, the only thing changing here daily is the file name.  I'm hoping I can use today's date to scrape the relevant information and generate the correct filename on a daily basis.
      From there I assume it should be trivial to download the file to a specific location and automatically send it to the printer.  I've been poking around, and I have some level of confidence that I can pull off the downloading and printing parts.  I don't, however, have any idea how to get started generating the daily file name.
      Any assistance you can provide would be hugely helpful.  I know the basic answer is "learn to code, it's really helpful."  I'm willing to put some time and effort in here, but I figured this would be a great place to start.
      Thanks in advance, and happy Veteran's Day!

      With the new update that brings Safari 10 to el Capitan, I can't watch videos in Flash Player anymore, so I have to stay in HTML5 in Youtube.
      The problem is when I choose a HD quality, the video is choppy (didn't experienced it with flash, so is not my graphics card).
      I wonder if there is a patch or something to make this work properly. I read something that is related to hw acceleration, but I don't really now.
      Thanks in advance.

      I have come up with one problem. I want to use Automator to download a files from specific URL's which are located on mega.cz server (The same like dropbox).
      So far i configured Automator as i need, but it's dead end for me when it comes to the file download. Files are stored on Megaupload server (www.mega.cz) and i don't know which task should i use in automator so it starts downloading the file on that specific server. 
      Here in the picture You can see where I am stuck.

      In that Url https://mega.cz/#...... is a .rar type of file. 
      I Guess that it can't just understand what to download, becouse if i open that link in a browser it shows options like these. (Picture 2.)

      I have tried all logical tasks in automator after a script where it filters Url's , but so far no success. 
      Maybe someone has an idea how to download these files.

      I would like to send an automated email every week conditional on whether a specific email has been received that week.
      Is this possible with the Automator tool, and if so, how can it be achieved please?
