SMTube 16.7.2 search failures and VPN problem

Postby farmerdave » Sat Jul 30, 2016 4:32 pm

SMTube 16.7.2 is behaving strangely of late. This morning I encountered two search failures.

First I searched for http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POk-uOQSJVk and got http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbRdPlfi6es as the first result, not exactly what I searched for. In fact, the video I searched for didn't appear in the results list at all! At least the results were related to my search. When I clicked on the NEXT button to see more results, however, SMTube crashed and the window disappeared!

Second I searched for http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP6dc_n-oo0 (Clinton Cash) and got http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pKwOLt3Ix0 (something about UFOs) as the ONLY result.

Youtube-dl was able to download both exact video IDs that SMTube could not find.

On top of these problems, SMTube doesn't seem to work through VPN service. When I launch SMTube with VPN running it never progresses beyond the 10% mark in the status bar. I'm pretty sure older versions of SMTube worked through VPN.

The search field is intended to search for words, not youtube URLs.

If you want to open a page in smtube with info about a specific video, first check that the toolbar is enabled in the menu View, and then type a URL like this in the location field: http://www.tonvid.com/info.php?video_id=VIDEO_ID.
Example http://www.tonvid.com/info.php?video_id=POk-uOQSJVk

About the VPN, I think this version doesn't have the code to use a proxy yet.
