New Version Available!
I wanted to let everyone know that I have written a more fully-featured version of the free application offered in this thread. The new version of the app (based on the free version) does the following:
- Converts YouTube.com, Dailymotion.com, Vimeo.com, Facebook.com, and Metacafe.com videos (5 of the most popular video hosting sites in the world)
- Outputs converted files to mp3, mp4, flv, and/or 3gp formats
- Enables volume adjustment prior to conversion via jQuery slider control
- Displays download AND conversion progress via corresponding progress bars
- Leverages the power of FFmpeg (http://ffmpeg.org/) to create crisp, clean, quality conversions of audio/video files.
- Reduces server load by skipping FFmpeg conversion for video file types (i.e., mp4 or flv) that are already available from video hosting sites
- Includes a tool that creates ringtones of (or crops) converted mp3 files
- Integrates Dropbox.com "Saver" buttons that enable converted files to be saved to site users' Dropbox.com accounts (in the "cloud") in addition to regular file download.
- Enables multi-language support via a corresponding drop down menu and XML translation files
- Provides the ability to easily incorporate static pages (i.e., About, FAQ, and Contact pages) as well as rudimentary "templating" support for (primarily) static pages via common header/footer files
- Initiates conversions via form submission (POST request) as well as URL query string (GET request)
- Automatically updates the code required to decipher changing, encrypted, YouTube video signatures.
- Validates video URLs prior to conversion
- Facilitates the addition of more video hosting sites as well as converted file types (by editing the code)
- Expanded config file for a more customizable interface (i.e., easy access to FFmpeg commands for different converted file types and the ability to configure default video/audio qualities, default volume, and maximum allowed length of YouTube/Dailymotion videos)
- Secures access to the server so that FFMPEG commands can only be run if a unique token is present
- Includes script that can be run as a scheduled task on the server, that deletes old converted files and ringtones
Note: To reiterate, the software requirements are the same as those detailed here. The Win32 version of my software caters to both Windows AND XAMPP users.
At this time, I am not offering this latest version for free. If you're interested, please contact me by email or PM for further information, pricing details, and a demonstration. (For immediate purchase
, please visit the Linux
versions of this software on their respective product pages.) My aim is to keep the paid-for version of this application affordable, so the price is negotiable to fit almost any budget. Again, please contact me, and I'm sure we can work something out.
I will continue to maintain and provide support for both the free and paid-for versions of the application via this thread. For now, both versions of the script will coexist. When either YouTube or Dailymotion makes changes to the front-end of their site, I will continue to post fixes here to keep all versions of the application operational.
Thank you for all of your interest in this application, and for visiting this thread. Your ongoing interest has really fueled the growth of this software. As always, I welcome any suggestions and/or feedback you might have.
