"YouTube and Clipdown not working again"

Hi,

YouTube and Clipdown are not working again.

All was working well untill today.

I tried a few URLs which I had saved as well as new YouTube URLs and Clipdown appears to start up then ... nothing. I`ve tried "Play" and also "Save"

I`m running a uA1 Amiga OS ver 4.1

Clipdown ver 3.2 dated 9 July 2010, getvideo and wget in the "C" Drawer.

Anyone else having the same trub ?


Regards, Michael

Yep, tried to grab a YT vid earlier. Can't remember the error but wasn't something I'd seen before. Figured it was just that video, but obviously not!

I got an email from ktadd this morning, here it is, I haven't got it to work in IBrowse, but OWB seems to work, though I'm having a problem getting it to work as described. Post what works for you.

I've found a workaround for playing YouTube files since they broke getvideo
recently. Here it is:

1. Go to YouTube and left click to select a video to view.
2. Put "savefrom.net/" in front of the URL and press "Enter"
(ie. savefrom.net/http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piZrjDTx2eg
3. Once the links to the URL for the videos are loaded just copy one into
the clipboard.
4. Click on the "ClipDown" button.

If "ClipDown" is set to "Auto Mode" the video will be downloaded.
If "ClipDown is set to "Play with MPlayer" the video will be played.

Other site that www.savefrom.net supports will work as well but most will be
played in "Auto Mode".

Pass it on.

Sorry, this may not work as described because I forgot I had modified ClipDown to support links produced by www.savefrom.net. The new version of ClipDown (v3.3) has just been uploaded to OS4Depot. Get that version then follow the instruction below to play YouTube videos.

Example Use to play or download YouTube videos:

1. Go to YouTube and left click to select a video to view.
2. Put "savefrom.net/" in front of the URL and press "Enter"
(ie. savefrom.net/http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piZrjDTx2eg
3. Once the links to the URL for the videos are loaded just copy one into
the clipboard.
4. Click on the "ClipDown" button.

If "ClipDown v3.3" is set to "Auto Action" mode the video will be played.
If "ClipDown v3.3" is set to "Download File" mode the video will be downloaded.

Other site that www.savefrom.net supports will work as well

I hope this "savefrom" hack is not need for very long, as (1) it makes ClipDown even less user-friendly & even more cumbersome, and (2) I'd rather not have to see porn links every time I want to watch a YouTube video.

Thanks, I will try it! GetVideo is not on OS4Depot, so I didn't spot the new release.

EDIT: It worked!

Where can I download Getvideo from?
How do I integrate it with MUI-OWB 1.9?

You download getvideo from aminet.net. You use it with Clipdown fromm os4depot.net by copying the link to the video so it works with any browser.

No need for clipdown with OWB (MUI). Just read getvideo readme, it tells how to configure getvideo in OWB contextmenus properly (as well as in Ibrowse). Basically, you just add a contextmenu entry for the page, link and image elements, and you pass the correct parameters to getvideo.

Would you guys mind posting your settings? I just tried it with the settings mentioned in the getVideo archive and didn't have any luck. Just said the video couldn't be found (or maybe YouTube has changed their stuff again).

Exactly the settings that is written in the readme for MOS OWB. Nothing else. Maybe you used for ibrowse or other.

I just double checked my settings and they seem to be correct. When I try to download a YouTube video I get a window that says

[getVideo] v0.29

Try to get video from www.youtube.com please wait...


Then after a few seconds it says:

Sorry can't get expected data.

Here are my Contextual menus settings:

Category
link

Label
getVideo

Action
C:getVideo "%l" save ram:



Category
page

Label
getVideo

Action
C:getVideo "%u" save ram:


As far as I can tell, that should be correct.

Only difference is i save my files to dh2:files but that should not have anything to do with it. Sounds more like its something with getvideo. Do you use getvideo 0.30 (i think its the latest) ? Does it work to get the video just by using getvideo from shell ?

EDIT: It seems i have to use "/" sign at the end of a directory for the file not be saved in the subdir. For example dh2:Files/ instead of DH2:Files.

Anyway for your problem. If you are trying to download the videos from a youtubelink inside facebook then it doesnt work as facebook is using their link before the youtubeURL. So just press on the youtubelink on facebook for it to open on own youtube window/tab and there the page category works :)

So either if getvideo gets updated to filter out facebook URL or get the author of clipdown to do this. You can contact them and see. I havent read in the manual if theres such a funktion already.

Yeah, that was it. I downloaded V0.30 and now it's working fine. I even added entries for 'play' and 'save & play'.

It would have been nice if new versions of getVideo appeared on OS4Depot or AmiUpdate. I don't check Aminet very often.

Thanks.
