DailyMotion disruption

Today we discovered that DailyMotion has changed their atom syndication file format. I’ve sent an email to DailyMotion’s CTO asking for more info. Previously, DailyMotion published direct download links to pre-converted files in their atom file. For TubeSock, it was painless to find and download pre-converted videos. (And by the way, DailyMotion gave us this info, and encouraged us to add support for them to TubeSock, which was super-nice. BFF!)

If this is a permanent change, and if DailyMotion is no longer our BFF, we’ll have to figure out how their new system works and make a new release for everyone. We’ll know in a couple of days. My apologies in advance for the trouble.
