Behind the scenes is a series used to discuss progress within FreeTube along with my personal thoughts on the subject. Today's article will be about the FreeTube rewrite that has been ongoing along with a public code release. If you're interested in helping with this rewrite, please read on as I would love to have your help!
Hey everyone! I know I haven't been very active lately. I'll get to that in a moment, however I have a new FreeTube release for everyone. It's a very small update but it fixes a recent problem that a few people have been having. I'd also like to go over the future of FreeTube and my plans moving forward.
There has been some issues with the latest Mac OS update that prevents FreeTube from running on that system. It's been a difficult time trying to fix the issue since I don't have access to a Mac to do testing with.
Most of you are likely aware at this point, but there have been some very nasty issues lately with videos unable to play. The TLDR of it is that YouTube has been IP banning servers that scrape their site much more aggressively than they have in the past. You can read more about it over here on the Invidious GitHub page.
Hey everyone! It's been quiet recently, but that doesn't mean progress isn't being made. I've been hard at work on the latest big feature for FreeTube, local profiles! It has been highly requested recently to have some way to organize your subscriptions in some sort of “folder” or “category”. My solution to making this happen will be with local profiles and in this blog I will be giving you a quick look at how is works.
I was originally debating if I wanted to make a new patch release, but the recent issues with the dash player ended up making the decision for me. Nevertheless, I'm here with a new patch release that fixes the recent issues as well as some nice features to go along with it.
Hey there everyone! Today is the release of what I consider one of the biggest FreeTube releases to date. With this release there are some big changes and I've knocked out a lot of highly requested features and fixes so let's go through all of them.
Hey everyone! I've been hard at work on v0.6.0 of FreeTube and I can gladly say that it will be out on Friday, June 14th. Keep an eye out for when the new release drops!
I will be spending this week testing out the new changes and making sure that they are stable as there's a lot to go through and I probably didn't catch everything. If any one would like to help out with testing please let me know through Matrix or through an email and I can send you a test build.
I'm probably very lucky that I found this almost as soon as it happened. Videos seemed to have stopped loading in the latest release. It seems that some URLs aren't being returned and because of that videos are refusing to play. This release is simply a hotfix to fix this issue so that you can continue using FreeTube as normal.
I'm currently hard at work on getting v0.6.0 ready for everyone. This is looking to be a very nice release and I'm excited to get this out for everyone. Stay tuned!
