Fetch: file transfer (ftp) software

When I want to upload files to my websites, such as ebooks, accompanying mp3s, and videos for my JW video player, images for a rotating banner, or images for a photo gallery, I use Fetch. The latest version includes the ability to see a QuickView of any of the files that are on my server, which is really helpful. The playful icon of a leaping dog is an added bonus…

Here’s what one of the folders on my www.triumphoverchallenges.com site looks like…

The main domain at the hosting site I use, Bluehost, is www.yourbiggestchallenge.com, but I’m not using that at the moment. All my sites are stored in this one account. You can see in the image above that I am looking in a folder called Videos-JW which contains video files for the JW Player I use on my sites if I’m not using YouTube to host them.

Inside this folder are 3 videos so far, so you can see the size of them, the file format, and the date I created them.

I can click on Get Info to see the following…

If I do a Cmd-C on the Intro 2 video file, and paste it here…

ftp://yourbigg:@yourbiggestchallenge.com/%2Fpublic_html/triumphoverchallenges/wp-content/themes/chris_payne/Videos-JW/Triumph-intro-2.mov

…you’ll see that Fetch put the ftp address for the file (which you could see in the Get Info box above) into the copy buffer. I can then replace “ftp://yourbigg:@yourbiggestchallenge.com/%2Fpublic_html/triumphoverchallenges” with “http://www.triumphoverchallenges.com”, and I now have the web address which I pass to the JW Player so it know which video to play.

Price: $29 (15-day trial available). Find out more here.
