Marcus 'ALB42' Sackrow's AmiTube enables watching YouTube videos on an 68k Amiga. They are converted to Commodore's CDXL format and downloaded.
With version 1.1 released today, the 'Fancy List' introduced a few days ago is integrated into the program: a new list function where title, description and thumbnail are displayed directly in the list (amiga-news.de reported). After switching to this variant, the images are loaded automatically, making it suitable only for faster Amigas/RTG or NG Amigas (YouTube video). The author tested the new feature on his Amiga 1200 with TF1260, AGA and 32 colors and found: "it’s not that bad, certainly fast enough to work with it." The changes in detail:
- Fancy movie list
- updated translation for italian and french
- encoding bug fixes (should show now umlauts and other non ASCII chars in title and description)
- smaller bugs fixes related downloading movies
The current version can be downloaded from the AmiTube website or installed via the update check in AmiTube.
