I talked about the Generic Plugin in this post, which adds video/audio download support for basically any website. In case you haven’t noticed, I just want to let you know that it’s available in the newest version of Tubulator. No need to go anywhere else for downloading from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and who knows where.
It seems like I accidentally linked to Tubulator Windows version 1.1.0 instead of 1.1.2 in the download script, when I updated to the new Amazon S3 URL format. Sorry about the inconvenience! A user kindly made me aware of the problem – thanks for that, Søren!
From the next version, Sparkle updates will be supported. Although you may not know the name, you’ve probably seen it working its magic in several macOS apps: A dialog tells you a new version is available, you say yes to update, a new version is downloaded and installed automatically, the application relaunches in the new version. So much easier than downloading and installing new versions manually.
There’s a port for Windows as well. I hope it works just as smooth as the macOS version.
I’m experimenting with downloading media from websites via a generic plugin. This opens up for downloading media from practically any website with public videos, thanks to the recent integration with youtube-dl. There will be no browsing available via the generic plugin, though – only for the relatively small (but soon to be growing) number of websites currently supported.
Below: Download from TikTok and Instagram as examples. As there will (probably) never be any related media for the generically supported websites, it’s perhaps better to get rid of the Related tab and give the image a bit more space.
