Tubulator 2 1.0.3 released; plugins download problem solved

I am happy to announce that version 1.0.3 was released a couple of days ago. This release adds support for downloading media from soundcloud.com, and adds a lot of fixes and improvements. Most notably this release adds stability improvements, a fix for download slowdown introduced by the App Nap “feature” in Mac OS Mavericks and heavily increased download speed. A YouTube plugin fix was also added – it seems that YouTube now redirects to HTTPS by default. This redirect was not handled by Tubulator, causing downloads to fail.

In the last couple of days it seems that users have not been able to download the initial plugins (necessary for the application to start at all). This problem has now been fixed. It was caused by a performance setting on the web host, effectively messing up the plugins.
