TubeSock 3.0 beta 19

A new beta release of TubeSock for Mac is out! And maybe there’s something to theory of lucky prime number beta builds after all. TubeSock 3.0 has advanced to beta 19 (download TubeSock 3.0 beta 19 here!) and it fixes the crash on PowerPC / Tiger Macs in beta 18. Yes, we finally got our [...]

TubeSock for Windows 1.0.8

TubeSock for Windows has now advanced to the ripe old age of 1.0.8. The only new thing is the bug fix, keeping up with its Mac cousin’s fixes for the recent YouTube changes. Download it here: TubeSock for Windows 1.0.8. My apologies for taking so long to get this release out. We made the decision [...]

TubeSock 3.0 beta 18

Almost immediately upon releasing beta 17 on Friday, we received reports of its fantastic success, along with reports of its total and utter failure. Beta 17 works fantastic here, so it took us a day to figure out that the problem was only happening on Tiger (10.4), and then another day to figure out what the actual problem was, and that we’d already solved it in TubeSock 1.0 and the working code was already written.

So behold, beta 18. Please post problems in the comments (don’t forget to include the URL that failed, your OS version, and your CPU type). Our PowerPC Mac is still dead, so we’re especially interested to hear from PowerPC users.

More info on the problem below the fold.

Debugger() was called!

Hey programmers! Is your WebKit-enabled app suddenly crashing in XCode every time you run it? Does “Debugger() was called!” inexplicably showing up in the run log? Is it driving you up the wall? Me too, so I decided to figure out what the hell was going on, and it turns out that it’s all Adobe’s [...]

TubeSock 3.0 Beta 14

Today we pushed TubeSock 3.0 beta 14 to our testers (test for yourself! Download TubeSock 3.0b14 now!). This build isn’t hugely different from yesterday’s beta 11; the big change is that it adds support for videos from the Onion. Yes, I know adding features at the tail end of a beta is a bad idea, [...]

TubeSock 3.0 in beta

Today we are finishing testing of the next release of TuebSock, version 3.0. The new version adds some new features, supports some new video sites, and fixes some problems (not the least of which is an issue with YouTube that arose last week). If you’re into beta testing, you can download the latest beta from [...]

Sumo 1.0.1 is now available

You can now update your Sumo! application to 1.0.1 in the App Store. It sounds like Apple was working furiously last week to get through the backlog of applications to review. Thanks for your patience! And please, if you find any new bugs in this release, let us know.

Seriously, Sumo! 1.0.1 is in the queue

It’s been a week since we uploaded Sumo! 1.0.1 to Apple’s servers, and so far all we’ve heard is that Sumo! 1.0.1 is “under review”. As best we can determine, an actual Apple employee downloads and installs every app uploaded to the store; the “review” in question is a check to ensure the app works, [...]

New Release: TubeSock 2.0.3

TubeSock 2.0.3 has gone final, with improvements to iPhone, iPod, and appleTV conversions. You can grab a copy at the usual place. However, we have gotten two reports of iPhone videos conversions showing up as all black (a bug we fixed in 2.0.3) for videos that we ourselves have successfully watched on the iPhone. So [...]

TubeSock 2.0.3 beta 3

We cranked out a bunch of action-items on TubeSock for Mac today. Here’s the list of things we fixed: Improved compression profiles for iPhone, iPod, Mac, and AppleTV — this solves the “this file can’t be played on this iPhone” message that many users had been seeing Support for Unicode filenames with “Add to iTunes” [...]
