Version 1.0.1 released

Tubulator 2 v. 1.0.1 is out! The new version adds mostly bug fixes and improvements, including support for encrypted YouTube signatures and the new separated audio/video DASH format. This should fix the occasional errors some of you have been getting when trying to download.
A significant behind the scenes improvement is that the application now checks for new or updated service plugins in the background at launch, only showing a dialog with the updates if there are any. The update usually takes a couple of seconds, and no restart is required.

Along with a couple of new service plugins, media playback within the application has high priority. I suspect that will be the primary goal for version 1.1.

What do YOU want? Have you found a bug or do you have an idea for an improvement? If yes, feel free to contact me via the “Feedback” menu within the application, or use the contact form on the support page.

A couple of weeks ago I was asked if there is any documentation for Tubulator 2, and sadly, the answer is no – for now. While I do think the application is very straightforward to use, I am getting the feeling that many new users don’t “get” the finer nuances of the application right away. This is of course completely natural, and I realise that everything has a learning curve, no matter how gentle. While I will continuously strive to deliver the best possible user experience out there (specifically compared to other media downloaders), I know I must supply a guided tour of the application in terms of a manual in order to fill in the gaps and not so obvious features.
