TVideoDownloader – New Version 1.8.0

TVideoDownloader 1.8 is out. This release inculdes big changes, updates to backends and smaller but useful improvements.

Youtube-dl updater recieved a few fixes and some small improvments. I plan to make it more robust in the future. After that, the code will be integrated to TEncoder as well.

Backends as usual recieved updates. Mp4Box was not updated in a while so the new update is a welcome addition. FFmpeg, mediainfo and youtube-dl are updated to the latest versions.

Skin is completely removed. This may seem as a backwards step. TVideoDownloader now looks less fancy but startsup faster, uses less memory and runs a little faster.

While I was using TVideoDownloader, there were several cases where youtube-dl got stuck while adding a link. So, I’ve added an option to specify a timeout for link adding process.

Full change log:

  • Added: An option to specify a timeout for adding a link
  • Added: A few interface changes
  • Added: youtube-dl updater will start updating process as soon as dialog is opened
  • Fixed: youtube-dl updater was writing downloaded file to exe instead of tmp
  • Fixed: youtube-dl updater could not delete tmp file in some cases
  • Fixed: youtube-dl updater could not rename tmp file to exe in some case
  • Removed: Skin
  • Updated: youtube-dl, mediainfo, ffmpeg, mp4box
