Software News   Software News : New ClipDown v2.2 released - Improved YouTube support with most recent MPlayer!
   posted by ktadd on 10-Aug-2009 21:42:44 (2630 reads)
Version 2.2 now works with latest MPlayer so YouTube videos work flawlessly. Also has enhanced
support for directly playing Amazon mp3 music site music clips. Additional video sites were added to the

(See below for additional changes and details.)




A small OS4 utility which uses 'wget' to download webpages and files pointed to by HTTP: and FTP: protocal URL's that reside in the clipboard.

(Just copy play.arrow URL to clipboard and click action button in Auto mode.)
Added experimental .m3u playlist support in Auto mode. (CAUTION: Can't abort!)

www.last.fm

ClipDown v2.3 has just been uploaded to OS4Depot with the following changes:

Version 2.3 (released)
Fixed bug where saving with getvideo would fail if save path had spaces
Added "Ask Save Location" menu item which can be toggled on/off.

Sorry for the frequent changes. I think I'm done for now unless a critical bug is discovered.

how does it compare vs getvideo ? I use getvideo at the moment because there is nearly no configuration to setup, but might give clipdown a try

knowing you also created the GUI for ffmpeg, this tool is potentially another golden tool

ClipDown uses getvideo so it will work just as well as getvideo as far as streming video's from sites like YouTube, etc. If getvideo is already installed it will automatically be recognized and the related menu items will be activated.

In addition to streaming videos, ClipDown has the following features:

Viiew PDF files via AmiGS
View any direct link graphics file supported by Multiview
Play any direct link audio file supported by Multiview
Play any direct link video or audio file supported by MPlayer. (set VPLAYER ToolType to path.)

Another bonus feature is you can play the 30 second clips that are
found on the Amazon mp3 sales / download site.

For people having trouble getting all the programs setup to run ClipDown, here are some simplified instructions:

The simplest way is to:
Put 'wget' into your 'C:' directory.
Put getvideo.rexx into your 'C:' director or 'S:Arexx' directory
Put 'MPlayer in the 'C:' directory.
Set ClipDown's VPLAYER tooltype like this: VPLAYER="C:MPlayer"

====================================================================

If you don't like everything in the "C:" directory then do this:

Install wget where ever you like.
Put getvideo.rexx into S:Arexx.
Install MPlayer where ever you like.

Modify the folloing setting in getvideo.cfg to point to the paths for MPlayer and wget
then put it in SYS:Prefs/Env-Archive:

Don't forget to uncomment the lines by removing the ';'.

;# here as examples the default settings
save_http = 'Volume:[path]/wget -c -O "%d" "%s"'
save_mms = 'Volume:[path]/mplayer >nil: -dumpfile "%d" -dumpstream "%S" -quiet'
play_file = 'Volume:[path]//mplayer >nil: *>nil: "%d" -quiet'
play_stream = 'Volume:[path]/mplayer >nil: *>nil: "%S" -quiet'

Modify the following ClipDown ToolTypes:

CMD_PATH="Volume:[path]/wget"
VPLAYER="Volume:[path]/MPlayer"

Some of you may have noticed that YouTube isn't working anymore with getvideo as YouTube changed the address scheme a bit. Juergen Lucas has already updated getvideo to version 0.21 which fixes YouTube again! Get it at aminet HERE!

Thanks Juergen!
