Anyway, someone dropped me an email a few days ago letting me know that it was broken again. It took a bit but it’s working yet again. Went almost 9 months on the last fix. I wonder how long this one will last. It appears to now be tagging the download link to the requesting IP address. (And yes, that’s all the details I’m giving out on that.)
The cool thing I’ve discovered is with YouTube now doing video in what they call high quality, the links for those videos are different. I was able to work out the different URLs and how they were coded so now things are a bit different over on the YouTube download site. You can still download from YouTube in *.flv format but you can also download from YouTube in *.mp4 file format as well as download from YouTube in *.mp4 High Definition.
Yes, I still have to write out some instructions. I’ll hopefully get to it this weekend. I really want to redo the whole site as that orange and whatever color those lines are doesn’t do it for me.
Oh and I fixed the file naming issue. You no longer have to worry about making sure the file extension is correct. Videos will now download with the correct *.flv and *.mp4 file extension. The rest of the filename will have to be changed though as they’ll all be called “video.*”
Any problems? Please feel free to leave a comment here.
