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.
History for search
AROS64 ABIv11 bit version
Amiga OS4 Version
Download more Amiga-like audio only formats: mp3 and 8svx
A new feature will be included in the next AmiTube Version, a Download Queue, so if you have a conversation/download job running you can continue browsing and add an other one which will be performed after the first one is finished.
This should be especially useful for slower network system. You can simply select some videos you like to have and then let the program work without supervision
AmiTube 1.0 will be available for all, from 68000 to 68060, from PowerPC and i386 to x64 and ARM, for all the modern OS Workbench 3.0 to 3.9, including 3.1.4 and 3.2, AmigaOS4 line and MorphOS up to 3.15, AROS ABIv0 and ABIv11.
Some people asked me (email and also here on the page) if it is possible to get the YouTube audio as MP3 or other Amiga-friendly formats, usually in the audio formats provided by YouTube are rather modern, mostly „mp4a“ and „opus“ (there are some older videos with different settings) both are too recent to be supported on a m68k Amiga. But you can use that to create your MP3 (or just any format you want) with it.
Download an Audio only with mp4a-codec and download that.
then wait a while 😉 done. You have your video as MP3, works great with Delitracker for example.
And from there you can get to any format you want, I guess, also 8svx for example. The old FFMpeg available for Amiga is not capable of saving 8svx but there should be some tools to make an 8svx from an MP3 (even Delitracker can do that, with the Filesave noteplayer).
Finished today the Version 0.8 of AmiTube. I reworked the whole network code (at my A1200 the download speed nearly doubled with that). You can sort the video list by any column present by double clicking on en entry (MUI doesn’t allow to click onto the title as it seems) or by using the menu items for it. Also new is the AmigaGuide help, you might want to try pressing Help from time to time.
Most of the other changes are bugfixes, thanks to all the diligent tester and bug reporters out there.

Download on the AmiTube Page or use the build in Update check to get the latest AmiTube archive.
I created a docker container which contains everything you need for an AmiTube Server, including Apache2, PHP, yt-dlp and all the script you need.
All you need to get it, is to start:
docker pull alb42/amitubeserver
on your linux box with docker installed
and then to start the actual docker container:
docker run -p 1234:80 alb42/amitubeserver
here the 1234 is just as example the port you want to have the server running on (of 80 is free of course you can also use -p 80:80). Then go to your AmiTube icon and add the SERVERURL= parameter for example
I noticed the MPEG1 conversation did not work for the released 0.7, but it was just an error on the server. I fixed it therefore now it should work, no new download needed. Sorry for the inconvenience.
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).
