„Alex R“ found a AmiTube problem on Amiga OS4 and reported it to me. (some days before already) I tried to implement that AmiTube remembers the splitter position. Sadly I made a big error there resulting in a very small barely recognizable List on the left side of the window. I only tested it on m68k-Amiga where it did not happen, but after a bit of trying I found the culprit and fixed it.
Originally I planed to release that fix with the next version, but now I got some more bug reports about the exact same thing (hmm, nobody of the beta testers reported it). It seems that it is not only an OS4-problem but also happens on at least MorphOS and some 68 Amigas. Therefore I will release this new version now, with bugfixes only, no functional changes.
Sorry for the trouble, if you are affected by this bug.
I finished some bug reports (most related to the fancy list), big thanks to the beta testers, especially „HANsolo“ who found the most bugs, thanks very nice work.
One thing I changed, The „Auto icon load“ setting in prefs will now also set the fancy list to auto load the icons or not, that way I guess it is maybe also usable on slower Amigas as well. I tried out on my real A1200 (with TF1260, AGA 32 color screen) and even with the icon preview on, it’s not that bad, certainly fast enough to work with it. I like it.
So the changes for this Version are quite short:
Fancy movie list
updated translation for italian and french
encoding bug fixes (should show now umlauts and other non ASCII chars in title and description)
smaller bugs fixes related downloading movies
Download as always via the Updater in the Program or on the AmiTube page
Finally here it is the 1.0 of AmiTube a lot of changes. As shown before now it contains a Download queue to start more than one conversation/download job which are processed one after the other. A Typical Amiga thing is the AREXX interface, all good programs have it, therefore AmiTube needs that as well. There are commands to search and to start a convert job and play a movie.
For this new Version I will also supply a Version for AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS due to popular demand.
Next to the search bar is now a Button which opens the search history.

The new release for AmiTube is ready to rock. The most important news are the Large AGA CDXL Setting (320px width) But be aware the file become huge. The other feature, which could make AmiTube interesting for NG Amigas, is the direct download of the Original movie or Audio only file.
Also new is the Update function, it checks for update and downloads the new LHA archive. This time there are more translation included (french by Eric ‚Tarzin‘ Luczyszyn and norwegian by Michal Bergseth).

I got some request for AmiTube for AROS because with the MPEG feature it is nicely possible to download and view videos in AROS. In AOS4 and MorphOS you can easily just use the m68k Version because of the seamless integration of 68k Emulation. But in AROS this is no possbile, therefore I compiled a special version for i386 AROS ABIv0 and ARM AROS.
Don’t forget to set a MPEG as default and a suitable MPEG player like mplayer, in principle a simple downloader would be enough for AROS (and AOS4, MorphOS for that matter) i386/arm should be fast enough to play the original format, so no conversation is needed at all.
A new Version of AmiTube is ready for release, most important changes are the localization (only german until now, but more to come) and preview icons, which makes it much easier to decide if a movie worth downloading.
Full Changes list:
Localization (german included)
Preview Icons (need jpg Datatype)
All formats Download buttons on main gui
Check for Free space on HD, warn before downloading if not enough space
Icon tooltype MOVIEDIR to set directory for movies
Just to finish that (for me the program and services around are now more or less finished) I will publish this AmiTube program which you can use to watch short YouTube videos on your ordinary Amiga 68k.
As one can notice in the last video I changed my setup from MultiView to AGABlaster, which is much better to play the CDXL videos, faster and smoother, also the palette switching works better. (you can change the default player in Preferences)
If you use that program, remember the conversation is done on my Server, please do not overdo it (try to convert a 2 hour video or convert hundreds of videos) other (and myself) need that Server for other things as well 😉
And please do not share or publish this program, anywhere! If one want to have it, here its free download it from my page. Thanks!
New Release of Free Pascal is done. It’s a bug fix release for 3.2.0 it has also some bug fixes for the Amiga systems, especially structures and functions are checked against official SDKs (especially for MorphOS with its latest SDK Version). For changes that break compatibility you can check official changes document.
