Release Notes: Minor improvements to make the extraction of information from YouTube more resistant to internationalization problems. Apparently, YouTube insists in sending localized versions of its Web pages (even if you request them to be in English) when you access the Web site from specific countries, which made the program fail for people living in these countries. In addition, a PostProcessing framework has been included to ease extending the program to perform further tasks after downloading the video files.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in the Unicode video title treatment, and another one with output templates referencing absolute paths. The main change is the program being able to download videos from metacafe.com and YouTube playlists.
Release Notes: This version is a complete rewrite from scratch. It was needed in order to make the program more modular, ease adding support for more video sites and features, and make the program easier to integrate in bigger projects. This project restart has the same features as the previous version, plus some more that are explained in the program documentation. In addition, the license has changed to public domain.
Release Notes: This release fixes a minor bug. When the program was instructed to download several videos and not use any title information in the output filename, it would output all the videos to the same file, with each new video overwriting the contents of the previous one.
Release Notes: This release makes it possible to use escaped URLs in addition to the normal ones. In addition, the program now tries to print more functional URLs instead of the final ones, which have been giving 403 errors lately when used directly in a download manager.
Release Notes: This release is able to detect errors in the login process and display an appropriate message. In addition, the program now accepts several video URLs on the command line.
Release Notes: The previous version broke the -b option. This release fixes the problem.
Release Notes: This release adds the -f or --format option to be able to specify any value for the URL "fmt" parameter.
Release Notes: This release adds support for downloading high quality videos using the -b or --best-quality command line option.
Release Notes: This release makes the program work again after a change in YouTube.com. In addition and by popular demand, the program now avoids renaming the file when intructed to use the video title in the file name.
