Description:

Videocatcher is an Internet television application powered by KDE. Videocatcher makes it easy to subscribe to video channels (RSS/atom feeds etc.) and download new videos. It works as a podcast client as well.

It is similar to Miro but is lightweight and powered by KDE.

Videocatcher now has a website: http://videocatcher.zanoi.net

Videocatcher requires KDE 4.4 for notification area (system tray) support. Thus there is no notification area (system tray) support in distributions which have KDE 4.3 or below.




Changelog:

0.1.8 Now with dynamic play menu!
- Create dynamic play menu based on mime type of downloaded file
- Icon now located in Internet category of Application menus

-----------

0.1.7 Now with episode information panel!
- Added episode information panel (thanks to Omar Plummer for the patch)
- Handbook now available
- Major code cleanup
- Bugfixes

-----------

0.1.6 Now with automatic refreshes!
- Automatic channel refresh
- Channel list context menu
- Removed "Refresh Channel" button from toolbar
- Better (but still not perfect) recognition of already downloaded and deleted files
- Bugfixes

 Stream video button

Hi,
I want to thank you for your work, the program is nice; it is the first time that I use a similar program. For the moment I have only one request: add a 'Stream Episode' button beside 'Download' in toolbar.

Thanks

Thanks for the feedback!

There should be a "Stream Episode" button to the far right of the toolbar. I also think it should be next to the download button, but unfortunately whether streaming works or not really depends on which program you are using for playback. With Dragon Player (the default) streaming often doesn't work, with VLC it's great. I don't want people to click the stream button and then think my program doesn't work :)

So the stream button is there, but the download button is much more visible and currently that's the best solution I think.

If you have any better ideas feel free to tell me :)

For toolbutton I mean one like kmail 'Check Mail'.

More requests:
* change order in "Channels List"
* context menu in "Channels List" for easy access to related operations: move, delete, add, rename, etc.

Regards

So you mean a download toolbar button which when held down has a drop down box that lets you choose between downloading and streaming? That's a good idea. I will probably add it to the next version.

I've been planning a context menu in the channels list for a long time but never got around to doing. I will add one in the next version as well.

I agree that channel list sorting would be nice. I just implemented channel sorting to test it. Unfortunately it puts an extra bar on top of the channel list and the only new functionality one gets it to be able to have the channel list in reverse alphabetical order. So I can't quite decide whether I should add it or not.

Thanks for the feedback and sorry for the late answer, I've been without Internet for a while!

Channel list context menu support is now in the Videocatcher repository and will be part of the next release.

Regarding channel list sorting, I figured out you probably mean more than the sorting that is already supported in the episode list. You want to be able to create a custom order for the channels. I will have a look at how hard it is to support that.

Unfortunately the toolbutton didn't make it into the release. I implemented it but it has lots of user-friendliness issues.

 feature request

Hi,

Thanks for making videocatcher, I really like it. A couple of feature requests: (1) it would be great if videocatcher could download and show the channel icon, and (2) be able to edit the channel's properties.

Thanks

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately I'm currently too busy to work on Videocatcher, but adding feed icons is one of the top items on my list of stuff to add. I'm not so sure about feed settings though, since I'm trying to avoid unnecessary settings and popup dialogs. So except for changing the feed name and maybe URL I don't think there are any feed settings to change.

Thanks for your fast response.

Yeah! that was the settings I was thinking about, to be possible to modify the channel name to some one shorter or that you would like more, or recognize better... and to give the possibility to update the url when necessary, e.g. if podcasts moves their location

Great. I have now added "Make it possible to change channel names" to the Videocatcher roadmap at http://www.zanoi.net/videocatcherroadmap

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
