    URLDown Dropper updated to v3.2. See Post #52.

    NOTE - SBS TITLE FIX, For those who use SBS web pages to get the URL. My apologies for being both slow on the uptake and blind to the need, due to using my preferred option of GetSBS List for SBS URLs.

    Also added a nice Toolbar tooltip feature.

    URLDown Dropper updated to v3.4. See Post #52.

    NOTE - Just an update for those who might like to have a Preview file for each video downloaded. A preview file can serve a few useful purposes, like checking that the download to conversion all went fine. It is not completely foolproof, but serves as a reasonable quick check method. It can also serve well as hint or summary file.

    While it should have no impact on the (Dropper) program itself, I also smartened the code up a bit ... reduced a few duplicated elements etc.

    URLDown Dropper updated to v3.5. See Post #52.

    NOTE - Bugfix for Preview option, due to a simple flaw in my maths ... didn't think to change one value. This bug meant any videos over an hour in duration caused an error and no preview file was created. Maths ... always hard work for my poor brain. My apologies for any inconvenience, and my only excuse, was that I obviously did not have a longer video on hand when I did my testing.

    URLDown Dropper updated to v3.6. See Post #52.

    NOTES - A few visual improvements mostly, but also some niche new features, with the 'pause' in BATCH list being the most useful for some users. The 'pause' allows you to fill the list with downloads, but only process (download) some of the list up to that point ... so handy if you want to set everything up once, but do the downloading in stages.

    URLDown Dropper updated to v3.7. See Post #52.

    NOTES - Another Bugfix for Preview option, due to an incorrect instance of 60, which should have been 59, which stopped a preview file being created in some instances.

    Added a Batch List Dropbox feature for creating preview files. Drag & drop your source files onto the new Dropbox, then when closing the Dropbox you will get prompted if you want the list processed. You can elect to do it later, which is as simple as opening that Dropbox again and then closing it to get the same prompt. Preview files get created wherever each source file exists.

    URLDown Dropper updated to v3.9. See Post #52.

    NOTES - Lots of changes, lots of testing ... Did I do it all? ... probably not ... but hopefully all the really important bits.

    I got sidetracked and interrupted a few times and came up with more ideas at a late stage, all of which delayed this update a few days ... not least of which was due to issues with my back.

    See the version notes for update detail. Enjoy!

    GetSBS List, has been updated to v4.2 at Post #23.

    NOTES - Added another FIND option when in Mode 2, which is an online SBS search based on the title specified. This is a FIND option that allows you to ADD a non-existing entry to the local database if desired, or UPDATE an existing one. FIND button is on the right of the 'Video Title' field, with a magnifying glass icon.

    Additional notes about the GetSBS List v4.2 new FIND feature usage.

    While it might not be obvious to some if there are relatively few SBS shows you follow, you could use the new FIND option to just ADD to the local database from the results of a title search, instead of using the regular UPDATE button, which takes longer and has a lot to wade through, especially if not used every day.

    Another benefit, is where you suspect an UPDATE has missed one or more items, that you can now directly search SBS online for, to ADD to the local database. You may also be able to UPDATE missing or incorrect detail, like Summary and Thumbnail, etc for an existing entry in the database.

    Or perhaps you removed an entry by mistake, and want to restore it to the local database, without having to use the UPDATE button process ... especially if the entry was added some time ago.

    GetSBS List, has been updated to v4.3 at Post #23.

    NOTES - As is often the case, when you've used something enough times, and see room for improvement (desire it even), you want to improve it if you can, so I did.

    See previous post for usage info.

    I had to re-up URLDown Dropper v4.0.

    It didn't look as though anyone had downloaded it, and I did it within a few minutes of the original upload (which got deleted first), but just in case someone did, I am giving this notification.

    Check the editing time at the bottom of the download post, to see if you were impacted (very unlikely) .... or the time of this post, as another reference ... even though many minutes have passed now since the re-up. See here for the reason.

    Does HDS Link Detector still work? I've tried the plugin for both chrome and firefox and i've never seen a popup with the manifest link.

    Pretty sure it no longer works, with ABC or SBS. Plus the plugin now only works in an older version of both browsers in any case.

    CORRECTION
    In GetSBS List v4.4 in the new improvements related to Loading and Searching, it is incorrectly stated about 'higher number to start at are more recent additions' to the local database. I had forgotten until recently, that the Index list used, is sorted by the 12 (etc) digit ID. That means recent entries are probably all over the shop. I may do something to correct this in a later update.

    So is there any way to download from sites that break up their videos into small chunks? I tried tubedigger but it doesn't work for this kind of security. It will only grab one piece and then stop.

    I use one of my front-ends (found in this topic) with youtube-dl.exe, but there are many other FE out there ... or just use it from a batch file with the video URL.

    In fact, this topic, which used to be about my AdobeHDS GUI program, has for some time now, been mostly about its replacement URLDown Dropper and a few other similar or complimentary programs of mine (GetSBS List, SBS YouTube-DL GUI).

    The first post in this topic has some links at the start, and some of those linked posts have other links.

    P.S. If you go to the you-tube-dl site, they have a huge list of all the video sites their program works with.

    Hmmm I tried URLDown Dropper but the command prompt just gives me "Error: unsupported URL" or something like that. And the sites i'm looking for aren't on the youtube-dl supported pages so I guess i'm out of luck. Thanks for all the info though.

    That would be an error message from youtube-dl.exe, so it would indeed seem your URL is not yet supported or is wrong in some way.

    It would seem so, but it may just be a matter of waiting for eventual support, and perhaps something you can hurry up maybe, by contacting youtube-dl support.

    No problem.
