PyQTrailer revisited

Some time ago, I wrote about my little project: apple.com trailer downloader. Apple is still not very open-source friendly as far as its trailer website is concerned. So all points I made in my original post still stand. To my surprise this little project is still alive and kicking, with new ideas for improvements coming and coming :-). What is even more important: it seems that so far no breakage happened due to apple changing something on the web.

Since the first version I released almost 6 months ago several new features appeared. Some of them include:

  • Parallel downloading of trailers
  • Ability to run movie player (mplayer, vlc, etc) without downloading file to HDD
  • Lot of customisation/performance options added
  • Working support for trailer search
  • Localisation support
  • Python 3 support

Latest version (0.5.2) is available in Gentoo repositories already, and should hit Fedora updates in next day or so (this will be delayed due to new package acceptance criteria though). Enjoy.
