AmiTube 1.0

Posted by ALB42 on 16. März 20222 Comments

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.

Changes:

  • History for search
  • AROS64 ABIv11 bit version
  • MorphOS Version
  • Amiga OS4 Version
  • Download more Amiga-like audio only formats: mp3 and 8svx
  • dual PNG Icons by AmigaSystem

AmiTube for AROS

Posted by ALB42 on 25. Dezember 2021One Comment

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.

Download at the AmiTube Page

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.

AmiTube 0.3 First Release

Posted by ALB42 on 26. November 20219 Comments

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)

Download: AmiTube 0.3

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!

Free Pascal 3.2.2 Release

Posted by ALB42 on 20. Mai 2021No Comments

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.

Downloads

or you go directly to the Free Pascal home page and download from one of the mirrors. Have Fun.

Docker direct compile and AROS update

Posted by ALB42 on 14. März 2021No Comments

Besides the documentation work I also updated the docker container. I created 4 scripts to compile directly from the docker (without using VNC/lazarus) so you can directly compile in your linux installation, that there is a docker container behind it you barely notice. But it only can compile standard Free Pascal things, no LCL applications (missing pathes to the lcl units, also not easy possible, but without Lazarus make not much sense, I think)

The AROS compilation had a big problem, when you compile without -g option it tries to strip but the strip tool was not installed, so I added some more tools to make it possible to compile without -g (makes the executable much smaller)

On this I updated the lazarus version to the latest version 2.0.12 as well.

If you want to use the newest Version of the docker (with the AROS bugfix) start the „CheckForUpdate.sh“ script if you also want to have the direct compile command download the CrossAmigaLazarus Package.

Ask Your Amiga 0.3

Posted by ALB42 on 6. November 2020No Comments

I did a big mistake on the last AskYourAmiga release, by accident the MorphOS binary was missing and instead the OS4 binary was copied as MorphOS binary. Sorry for the confusion. Therefore I made a new release. But the MorphOS release is somehow strange (or better MorphOS is) after some picture loaded some pictures look wrong, wrong colors and seems also the size is wrong calculated. But not all pictures are affected only some but when it appears all these type pictures will become wrong. restart AskYourAmiga and try the same question try to load the picture and it works. Very strange, seems like something is crashing inside the datatypes system (but the log does not show anything related).

To be honest I did not try AskYourAmiga very much on the other Amiga Platforms, only on Amiga OS3.x m68k because on all the other you could theoretically use the browser for wolffram alpha. So I concentrate to make it run nicely on classic m68k Amiga.

Other changes with this version are pure internal, some little redrawing problems I got report from OS4 and some bugfixing I found myself (not cleared buffer, such stuff).

You can use the Update function of AskYourAmiga 0.2 (in Suggestion/History Window, it will download the archive and save it to where you want, you only have to unpack it) or you download it from this page.

Have fun!

Ask Your Amiga 0.2

You know whats most funny when browsing Wolfram Alpha or such databases, just following the links inside it, sadly the API does not give infomations for links in the text. BUT it supplies related searches, I implemented an additional page to AYA that you can find close searches, sometimes there are even some weird stuff… maybe they are searches other user used? I don’t know.

Besides that I implemented a history of your searches and also added some suggestions sorted in categories, some starting points what to search. Also if you find something funny (like the people curves e.g. „Arnold Schwarzenegger curve“ and so on) why not share them with other. In the result window is now a „Share“ button where you can add a short description and your name (if you like) and I will add them to the suggestion database. (which you can update via the suggestion window)

Also the software itself can be updated from the suggestion window.
