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.

TubeSock 3.0 beta 17

TubeSock 3.0 Beta 17 is out. And the it’s the best one yet. And not just because it’s a prime number. Download it now! The YouTube download code is now fixed. We had to scrap the original YouTube download code. In its place is a new YouTube downloader written from scratch. This new method is [...]

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 broken again

Good thing we didn’t release 3.0 final yesterday. Apparently, at some point between midnight last night (when we released TubeSock 3.0 beta 16) and this morning, YouTube changed something yet again, and TubeSock gives those “file doesn’t exist” messages once more. Now, it’s not a total loss. TubeSock 3.0 beta 16 still works for video [...]

TubeSock 3.0 beta 15

Mike Canny caught a bug in TubeSock 3.0 beta 14 where the “Save as Mac” format would crash with TeacherTube videos. That’s fixed in the new beta 15 (download TubeSock 3.0 beta 15 here!) along with the elimination of a few more debugging strings. Please give the beta a try and let us know if [...]

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 [...]
