I’ve received numerous emails regarding MxTube 1.5. Here are some new features you can expect in the next update:
MxTube 1.5′s background downloader uses libcurl instead of Apple’s downloading APIs. Therefore all proxy settings like those for tzones are ignored. libcurl supports using a proxy and if I cannot set it to use the user proxy settings, I will add a small settings panel for custom proxy settings.
All iPhone apps have the ability to read from a dictionary of localized strings, making translation very easy. The next update will implement localized strings allowing anyone to translate MxTube into any language.
TV out (maybe)
Apple’s Movie Playing class in the SDK has no documented methods to enable TV out. I’m going to take a look at the YouTube app to see how it is enabling TV out and if possible incorporate it into the next MxTube update.
