We are happy to announce the release of WhaleDown Desktop version
2022.3.0. This version ships with lots of new features and bug fixes.
The most exciting feature is supporting
HLS(m3u8) streams which stream videos and audios separately. You may have already noticed that some videos downloaded do not contain audios.
2022.3.0, WhaleDown can download and merge videos and audios seamlessly. As a result, the
Experimental Downloader option is removed from the downloader's preferences view.
In this version, we add some new interceptor rules to detector to support
DASH(mpd) streams. For DASH streams, WhaleDown will download videos and audios sequentially, then merge them after downloading finishes.
We also updated the DASH downloader to diplay the downloading progress and status of videos and audios.
There is a new option
Download without asking in the detector. When it is checked, WhaleDown will download videos without showing a confirming dialog.
Download All button will be displayed on the top toolbar of the detector.
