I'm a huge Apple Quicktime Trailer fan from both the website ( ) or the Trailers submenu on iTunes. I was going to download the new Elysium Trailer (in 1080p) via iTunes when I noticed it just offered the Play feature and only in 480p or 720p. So not only do they not offer it in 1080p at all and including even newer trailers like the brand new Man of Steel trailer, but they've eliminated entirely the download feature that's been there since forever.
However older posted trailers by a few days still shows the download option and up to 1080p. UNLESS they have added a new trailer like the Man of Steel Trailer, so now all the previous trailers of Man of Steel are also stream only, 720p max, and no download option.
Well I'm probably the last to notice since I basically stopped going to the trailers section once this started, but the 1080p downloads are back. Still can't download from isolated movies for some reason, but 90 percent are working again. In case anyone tracking this also hasn't been checking the trailers area.
For the current moment, it is what it is. Rather than continue to speculate, I for one think it would be more productive if this group could collaborate on solid documentation of the \"work arounds\" to aquire (legacy) 1080p trailers before they disappear as well. I've tried using curl and wget on the command line and both tools only download the 4K pointer. The pointer file then loads the trailer data into the QT container when opened. Not an ideal scenario if you're looking to maintain the trailer for posterity.
I also just noticed the lack of 1080p movie trailers. I can't even download any trailer to watch later. I like to watch trailers on my Apple TV using a playlist. I watch trailers in a playlist because it's eaiser than using the app. I can't watch a list of trailers instead of clicking each one individually using the Trailers App on Apple TV. Aot of the simple things have changed in the new update (iTunes 11.0.3). I can no longer view Album Art at any size. Any have any solutons for downloading movie trailers from Apple 1e1e36bf2d
