FlexTube to be open source!

This is a big update!

UPDATE: Source now uploaded!

I’ve decided that I just don’t have the time or interest to pursue FlexTube anymore.

You will find an example of FlexTube with the core functions online here. (Username: test, Password: test)

There is a small bug, if you search for a video and no results are found, it will spit out an error. I haven’t really worked on that part of it yet.

I will very shortly be uploading the code to Google Code. I’ll update this post once it’s done.

Feel free to download and play around with the code, or even work on it further and make improvements. I’ll be checking on it now and then to see how it’s going.
I wasn’t really sure what license I should have selected, so I just picked “GNU Lesser Public License”. If anybody can shed some light in that area (licensing) that’d be great!

I have started work on this new, top secret project. When I get around half way near completion, I suppose I’ll be able to blog about it. Until then I’m not allowed to say a word!


FlexTube Update

This is big news!

I’ve decided to release FlexTube as an online application instead of an Apollo/Zinc app.

Why? Lots of reasons… It’s easier for a lot of people, including myself (less programming).

Keep your eyes pealed! I’ll be releasing a beta version soon, although I haven’t decided if it’s going to be public or private.

As usual, all suggestions are welcome 🙂

According to, my FlexTube application was voted the 10th coolest Apollo Application!

Thanks to all of you people who made that possible 🙂


I’ve been working hard on FlexTube. I’ve added a whole array of features, some new and some old.

There will be the following in the next (stable) release :

  • Download Manager – Ability to download videos
  • Export – Export the videos into different formats like .mpeg and .avi
  • Favorites data will be stored online so you can access it anywhere!
  • Lots of small improvements to make everything run better.

…and lots more!

I’ll leave the rest as a surprise!

It’s Here! FlexTube v0.9.2

UPDATE: Everything is back to normal! Check it out! (4/6 @ 9:32 PM EST) OK I’ve talked to the server people and they tell me they’ve got hardware problems and it will be resolved in 6+ hours! Sorry for the delay! (4/6 @ 5:25 PM EST)
We’ve got some problems with the server so you may not be able to download/login. Working on fixing the issue, should be resolved shortly! (4/6 @ 5:05 PM EST)

It’s finally here people!

Download: FlexTube version 0.9.2. (1.57 Mb)

I’ll be posting updated screenshots soon as the ones in earlier posts are quite a bit out of date.

I’ve made some big changes, for example I’ve now added a login screen, forcing you to login to access the rest of the application.

Oh, which reminds me –

Username: test
Password: test

Might need those 😛

Feedback is greatly appreciated!!
