    Just updated the NOTE near the start of Post #23, to be more in line with current Modes and processes. Just realized I had overlooked that. Mind you, reading the version details should probably have cleared any confusion.

    I now recommend an 'hours earlier overlap' value of 24 (at least). You can read the reasons why here.

    Due to a recent problem with SBSphp GUI (see Post #17), I adapted it to work with the command-line program youtube-dl.exe instead. This is now being released as SBS YouTube-DL GUI or the affectionate more friendly name of SBSGetterer.

    youtube-dl.exe is required and can be found at - https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/

    The adaption also includes a floating Dropbox, for drag & drop of SBS video URL links.

    NOTE - It may be that you will need to provide Administrator permissions for SBSGetterer and youtube-dl.exe (especially) to work together.

ID:	41230 Name:  Dropbox.png

Size:  2.8 KB

    The floating URL Dropbox is run from a secondary EXE, and the Video List is not updated, until it closes. NOT TESTED - It is possible, to run the Dropbox.exe file independently, but it would require closing and re-opening the SBSGetterer program to have any new items show on the Video List ... or you could open the Dropbox the usual way and then close it immediately, to do much the same thing. That last cannot be done while the program is downloading videos.

    UPDATES
    (v1.1) Support added for https.

    NOT RECOMMENDED
    There is an alternative Dropbox, that is not run as a separate EXE. However, its use is problematical and so not recommended.
    This Dropbox is run in the same usual manner as the other (hold down CTRL while clicking the Clipboard button). SBSGetterer is minimized while either Dropbox is running.
    To have it work instead of the default Dropbox, you need to modify an entry in the Settings.ini file. In the [URL Dropbox] section, change the 'use=1' entry to 'use=4'. NOTE - If the Dropbox.exe file is not present in the program folder, when first running SBSGetterer, then this alternate Dropbox is the defacto default.
    If you have issues getting the alternate Dropbox to work, see the following instructions, which I do not recommend you use. Use at your risk only.

    1. Install the Visual Basic Runtime from here. That supposedly gives you the required library elements.
    2. If you get an error message (Class is not licensed for use) then you probably need the ActiveX Fix. I came across mention of it at Embedded activeX component - RichText. A post there mentions an ActiveX Fix, which can be downloaded from here. The included reg file did the trick. I also came across what appears to be a similar thing, called vbctrls.reg, which is said to be located on the VB6 install CD, under \Common\tools\vb\controls.

    WARNING - I am not sure about the legality of that ActiveX Fix, so I have no intentions of recommending it. Users though, are free to do as they wish. It does seem odd to me though, that Microsoft have such a painful arrangement with these old controls, especially as the web is full of people struggling with a similar issue to this. It is very much like VB .Net made VB6 programs redundant, which should not have been the case. According to what I have read, if the control was provided in a specific manner (attached to a form or something), then the licensing issue doesn't occur ... but I have no clue how to implement such in AutoIt ... or if you even can.

    My apologies for updating again so soon, but I am finding the new load by Expires date feature from the last update, a very handy thing, and it didn't taken very long for me to realize it could do with some further enhancements, to save on typing etc.

    Just whipped up a simple basic helper (run & move window) program, of particular benefit to iViewRipper and SBSRipper users.

    Run Program Move Window v1.0

    It is good for relocating program windows that don't remember a preferred screen position.

    The program creates an alternate shortcut on your Desktop, which you can relocate elsewhere if you like.
    (1) It runs specified program.
    (2) Can optionally wait for a popup window and select specified option.
    (3) Move main window to specified position.

    Just create a folder for the program somewhere, and run it from there or create a shortcut to do so.

    IMPORTANT - Needs Admin privileges. Don't activate other windows during the short period it is running.

    GetSBS List (SBSGet), has been updated to v3.0 at Post #23. See previous Warning/Bug posts and Details at Post #23.

    This update, has some level of automation to get the Manifest and enter it into the 'AdobeHDS GUI' automatically (Firefox support only ... but see the dialog when selecting the option, for a Chrome possibility) - this is EXPERIMENTAL so the process may fail. Enable or Re-enable the option to see more detail.
    NOTE - This option is very dependent on the HDS Link Detector popup window size, which does change according to manifest data, but also could very well be different depending on your PC screen resolution. I have catered automatically for the former, but not for the latter, though I have provided some 'Options.ini' file settings, that a savvy user could modify. To do this, see the [Get Manifest] section entries (left, top, width, height), and use them in conjunction with any results returned in the [Popup Found] section. I can explain further in a post here at the VideoHelp forum, if anyone has trouble and asks.

    AdobeHDS GUI, has been updated to v4.4 at Post #1. See details at Post #2. New screenshots at Post #3.

    P.S. It seems I forgot to create new posts here to advise of the earlier update of AdobeHDS GUI to v4.3, and the latest update of v3.1 for GetSBS List (for the download & details, see Post #23).

    AdobeHDS GUI, has been updated to v4.5 at Post #1. See details at Post #2.

    GetSBS List, has been updated to v3.6 at Post #23. This is only a minor update, so that sub-folder creation matches that newly added to AdobeHDS GUI.

    AdobeHDS GUI, has been updated to v4.6 at Post #1. See details at Post #2.

    GetSBS List, has been updated to v3.7 at Post #23.

    Both of these are a minor bugfix update, for a discovered flaw in the new sub-folder creation code, plus I have added an improvement.

    Welcome to URLDown Dropper, a simple drag & drop video URL downloader.

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Place 'URLDown Dropper.exe' in a folder.
    2. Download or obtain 'youtube-dl.exe' and place it in same folder.
    3. Download or obtain 'ffmpeg.exe' and place it in same folder.
    NOTE - To stop 'youtube-dl.exe' complaining about 'ffprobe' etc, 'ffprobe.exe' can usually be found in the same download zip as 'ffmpeg.exe'. So just grab 'ffprobe.exe and place it where 'ffmpeg.exe' is.
    4. Run (execute) 'URLDown Dropper.exe'.
    5. A dropbox should appear, that you can drag a video page URL to. Or use copy & paste.
    6. If an acceptable URL, then the video should start downloading immediately (ABC or SBS) or prompt for a unique title first (other sites).
    7. Multiple simultaneous downloads are possible. Just drag and drop another URL.
    8. When the Dropbox closes it may query to cleanup some files. Though you may still need to cleanup one or two others after a cancelled download.
    9. Many options are accessible through the Dropbox's right-click menu.

    SUBTITLES
    An attempt is made to download any subtitle file.

    TROUBLESHOOTING
    If you have any problems, you may need to create a shortcut to 'URLDown Dropper.exe' and give it Administrator permissions to run (i.e. Run As Administrator).

    NOTE - If you know about setting %PATH%, then you may be able to specify the locations of ffmpeg.exe and youtube-dl.exe that way.

    DOWNLOAD SITES
    ffmpeg.exe = https://www.videohelp.com/software/ffmpeg
    youtube-dl.exe = https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/

    UPDATES HISTORY
    (v1.1) Added many new features.
    A program sub-folder for Downloads is now created & used.
    Dropbox GUI is enlarged in height a little, to accomodate a right-clicking section at top for menu.
    Right-click menu added, with several entries (including Paste a URL, Open the Downloads folder).
    Pause in the Batch files is now optional, plus a timed variant added.
    Users can add or modify command-line extras in 'Settings.ini' file for 'youtube-dl'.
    NOTE - By default in the 'Settings.ini' file, the Timed Pause delay is 10000 milliseconds (10 seconds).

    (v1.2) Added an Update option for youtube-dl.exe.
    Bugfix for Timed option setting.
    Improved cleanup check & routine.
    Name fix for author.
    Improved the Inputbox for non ABC/SBS sites.

    (v1.3) Added a Create Batch file only option and a Build Batch file option.
    The menu Exit option now bypasses the usual exit (cleanup query) checks.
    A manifest can be looked for and used if successfully found, and should allow downloading higher quality videos, if available.
    Added options to repackage resulting file to MP4 or MKV if desired.
    Added a Domain fix for those that might get affected by the 'Metered' version.
    Specifying download of Subtitle file is now a right-click option.
    Updated the Instructions in this file.
    NOTE - By default, the higher quality downloads for ABC/SBS are FLV. A right-click option allows you to repackage that to MKV or MP4.

    ADVICE - At the moment, youtube-dl.exe is not getting the higher quality streams for ABC iView, and perhaps others. I have put in a bug report/request, which I reckon others with a vested interest, could also add their voice to - https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/issues/13492
