video streams bug

Post by katz » Sat May 30, 2009 2:25 pm

I've been using the streams detector at the bottom for many versions now and there's one problem that has always persisted, meaning that it was never known to the devs.
I'm using FlashGet 1.73 (the non-bittorrent version) as my download client to relay the downloads to and on the url end of every video there is a sharp # symbol, which I have to delete manually in order not to get a 404 or a 500 (depending on server software).
This may be insulated just with the FlashGet integration, but it still needs to be addressed. Perhaps it would be better if it checks for the sharp instead of the download client of question.

No site is immune to this bug.

Try toggling the Preference item flashgot.media.guessName to False.
