clipgrab
« on: February 02, 2021, 11:57:12 pm »
Good evening, I've just downloaded/installed ClipGrab 3.7.2  by his rpm package (ANPM).
It starts, but after pasted a youtube video link in the field for downloading, it warns that link is not a valid one for video contents.
Has it maybe become obsolete due to a Youtube platform update against video grabbing?
Thank you

Wouldn't be surprised if YouTube changed its API again. Also watch out for ampersands and such in the URL, IIRC you need to prune  the ampersand and following text off.

Hi,
The version you downloaded is a bit outdated unfortunately.
The newer version of clipgrab needs webenginewidgets and that we dont have yet.
So  we need to wait till BWW have made it ready for us...

But  donations, are welcome for BWW, so they can further work on QT5 and more OS/2 based projects ....
