Timeout limit on readurl function?

Anyone know if there is a timeout value in seconds for the readurl function? I'm getting seemingly random "download failed" errors in my scripts that use readurl(). Often when I try a second or third time the script works as intended. I'm on a dodgy ADSL connection in Southern Europe right now so I ...

Portable file icons

I may have missed something as we do have portable file associations.
Can Explorer also do portable file icons?

Re: Bypass XYplorer's Being Busy When Running Scripts

The issue I see here is that variables are not carried over. I'm not a big fan of writing swap files to disks since it introduces one more point of failure usually related to read/write access restrictions. It would be awesome if one instance of Xyplorer could access the memory space from another in...

Re: Youtube.com 0.3 (Only requires Xyplorer now)

Thanks Marco, it worked very well. However, since you used "replacelist" in lieu of the "regex", and as you noted the last 2 lines can be removed, if they are removed, you have to change the new last line to: $g_Title = replacelist($Title, "/,\,:,*,?,<,>,|", "", ","); to get the $g_Title variable n...

Re: Youtube.com 0.3 (Only requires Xyplorer now)

The file name issues should be gone in the next update. I wrote the code for getting the file name rather quickly and so it's a bit sloppy. I'm probably also going to re-introduce VLC as an optional addition to the script . I've opened a thread on the "Bug Reports" forum about the 100mb file size li...

Re: Youtube.com 0.3 (Only requires Xyplorer now)

:appl: Llittle remark(s): - there are replacement that are not strict regular expressions. I suspect a "standard" replace() / replacelist() could be better in terms of performance and readability. urldecode() also might be your friend (esp lines 19 to 27) - you could write $Database with heredoc sy...

Re: Youtube.com 0.3 (Only requires Xyplorer now)

The file should show up in the directory from where the script is activated. Perhaps I should change this to something like user/downloads or perhaps allow the user to select a default directory

100mb file download limitation

Hi Don,

I've just updated my Youtube script (http://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=9396)

The current download limit is 100mb. As a result the script often can not download 720p/1080p HD videos. Any chance you can remove this limitation?

Cheers!

Re: Youtube.com VLC 0.2.0 Update!

So I just discovered it is possible to download Youtube videos using the readurl script function. No VLC, just pure Xyplorer. Mind = blown. This will only work for downloading the full video as you still need a demuxer to get the audio or video track separate. It also looks like I will have to regex...

[12.20] Unable to download Youtube page source - SOLVED

Don, Xyplorer throws error #0 Could Not Find Page when attempting to download a Youtube page with URL such as: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYywA0cyGBg I was hoping the download command would download the source code of that page which I need to regex out some meta data. Any chance this is an easy...
