YouTubed-2x 2009.06.17

Lately, I have been using YouTubed-2x less than usual. Also, coding the program is not as fun as it used to be. The little time that I spend working on the program anymore just seems like a waste of time to me. So, I will package the changes that I have made and release a new version. This will likely be the last version I will ever publish. There have been some good additions with this version. Here is a list of the most significant changes.

  • Icons are placed next to a video title in order to show which site a video is hosted at
  • A downloader class has been made. Wget is no longer a dependency for this program
  • Anonymous HTTP proxy support has been added
  • 640x480 resolution option has been added. This option should be useful for watching videos while using the Tv-Out option of the GP2X
  • Automatic download support has been added and enabled by default. Videos will immediately begin downloading once a URL has been added and a page has been parsed. Manual downloading is still available
  • Process limit added. The default is 4 but setting the option to 0 will count as unlimited
  • Right-click menu added. Only has a copy URL action
  • Porn2Pc parser added. Videos listed on the site that originate from a website supported by this application will work
  • Google Video parser updated, PacoPorn parser added, RedTube parser updated
  • 17 websites are now supported by this program

Based on what I have seen, the videos converted with this program should also work with the new GP2X Wiz so I might start working on this application again if I get a Wiz and I find this program useful again. That is not very likely though. I do plan to get a Wiz sometime but I don't think that I will have a need for this application then. It is a shame that I am going to stop now since this program is close to being 3000 lines long. I still consider writing 1000 lines of code to be a major undertaking; I didn't even realize that this program was so close to 3000 lines until about a week ago. I don't know what I am going to do with the little amount of time that I will gain by not working on this app but I hope that it will go towards something more useful.
