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
- Under the hood improvements

-----------

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

 KatchTV

You might want to check out my project, KatchTV, which is also on here. Quite a lot of overlap. KatchTV is probably more feature-complete, but this seems to use more KDE-specific stuff like KIO and be less hackish. Also, KatchTV isn't developed any more, and this clearly is :D Features from both might make a great system though, and you're welcome to borrow as much/little as you need, if code/licenses match :)

KatchTV is incredibly more feature complete! Videocatcher currently doesn't really have any features at all :-) Err yes, there's quite a lot of overlap. Not completely the same though. Unfortunately I'm not really a Python guy, but I'll have a look at the KatchTV code. Are you planning to continue KatchTV development in the future?

Unlikely I'm afraid; I'm not using KDE much these days, and it would need some big changes (but not a rewrite, hopefully) to make it take advantage of KDE4 stuff like phonon and KIO. Also, I've kind of become a convert to the way that Videocatcher and PenguinTV (and many other podcatchers, but not Miro, work). That is, most simply download/convert/manage podcasts, but let a third-party player do the playing in another window. Makes more sense in terms of allowing any kind of content I think, and the unixy do-one-thing-well approach :)

That's a shame. Would be a waste to not have it developed any more :-( That Miro didn't use an external application to play videos was a major annoyance to me, especially when I for a while had no sound with Miro's internal player. The Unixy "do one thing well" is exactly what I'm planning with Videocatcher :-)

This is a great app. I was just wondering if it supports youtube. I added a youtube channel but it said not available

Unfortunately there is no Youtube support yet since Youtube doesn't support RSS. I hope to be adding Youtube support later at some point though.

 Really Nice, Much Potential!

I really like the idea of a podcast catcher for KDE, I like how you use an external application for the video, which is the greatest reason to hate Amarok as a podcast catcher (I do not like the video widget needed). I see much potential for this. I had a problem building Videocathcher I am on Lucid and have the required packages and could not build, so I used the 9.10 packages. After doing "sudo aptitude install kdepimlibs5-dev libqt4-sql-sqlite libboost-dev" and then using the "make" command (cmake CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=.../usr/ .. /.. works) and get 0 % built.

Hi, great to hear that you like it. Strange that it doesn't work. I'm on lucid as well and it works fine for me. Is there any error message at all?

I tried compiling Videocatcher on a fresh version of Kubuntu 10.04 Beta 2 and it worked fine.

Interesting that you're using it as a podcast client. I'm using it as a podcast client as well but I mainly had video feeds in mind while developing it. Maybe I should change that.

 Great app! Just a bug report

 
 by drmarco31 on: May 9 2010

Hello,

I like very much videocatcher. I would like to contribute to report a small bug :
When using for example this channel : http://www.arte.tv/podcast/rss/Court-circuit-off_f.xml
the status of all the episodes is marked as "not available". The link provided by "copy link location" is blank.
However, at first sight, the corresponding file seems pretty OK and the links provided therrein seems to work.

Thanks for videocatcher, and hopefully for your help in sorting out the issue!

Best,

M.

Thanks for the bug report! I think this is an issue with the library I use to parse the feeds. Will try to fix it.

Why don't you use phonon for displaying videos? Streaming would be possible, too.

Good question. I wanted to create a videocast client where the user can download videos and then play them with his favourite video player. I didn't want to create another bad media player but instead focus on doing one thing (downloading videos) well.

Back when Miro forced me to use it's built in media player I had lots of critical problems with the player, which made it almost impossible to use Miro.

Now that I have the external playback I'm thinking about maybe adding Phonon support as an option, but currently have other things that have higher priority...

 Miro or itunes link support.

First, thank you for this really nice application. It does what it should without much ado.
One feature request:
1) Could you please add some support for miro or itunes links. I don't know whether this is much work.

I'm glad you like it. I will have a look at how much work it is to support iTunes or Miro links.

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
