Ted Downloader V 3.7 Mid-Release
I have gotten various complaints from various users that they are having some issues with TED Downloader. These concerns are mainly regarding the downloader being unable to download videos properly in areas with low network connectivity. Also,they are not able to download subtitles. Now, I have got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I have decided to patch some of the issues and do a mid-release prior to the next V 4.0 that i have promised and in this release I address the problem of the video downloads failing but the bad news is that i had to drop the Subtitle module.
The first problem that people were facing were related to low network connections. The main complaint was that they are not able to download a video where there is a network issue and the download drops mid-way and does not resume and the videos are skipped the next time they run the app. This issue has been resolved and even when the network behaves absurdly, the app will try to retain the file but if it is not recoverable then it will drop the partially downloaded file and download it from scratch the next time you try to download any file so that you are not stuck with a corrupt file.
The second issue that people had was with the subtitles not working. Now this is because there has been a change at the TED side as to how the subtitles are served to the users and i simply would not be able to accommodate that inside my app. The thing is that they have started using API keys if you want to download stuff from their servers and the keys provided to me would just not be able to withstand the volume that my current users use. So this functionality is going to become a premium feature available only to the users who take an interest in the future development of this app.
The application has been uploaded to the usual location and you can download V 3.7 from there and keep letting me know any other concerns that you have.
