I just wanted to let you know that Youtube is currently blocking a massive amount of videos to get converted by the Media Converter conversion servers.
If you get multiple “Conversion failed” errors please do not retry immediately. This wont make the situation any better. Youtube blocks IP addresses that are requesting too many videos per hour. As you can imagine there are tens of thousands per day from the conversion servers. I hope the situation calms down during the next 24 hours.
Thank you for your understanding!
Media Converter is now available in Dutch/Nederlands http://www.mediaconverter.org/nl/ . Thanks to Sandra Jonker for the great translation! There is also a Spanish and Italian translation in progress. If you want to translate Media Converter into your language please contact me. You will get a one year membership for free. Native speakers (students or professional translators) preferred.
In the past there was only a like button at the top of the page but I now replaced it with a new button that is linked with the Media Converter Facebook page. So I lost all the 100’000+ likes . But now it is possible to keep you up-to-date with the Facebook page and the new Twitter account. Feel free to post feedback, feature requests or bug reports.
I just updated Media Converter to make it work with Youtube again. I also had to remove some of the old supported websites as they are no longer working or rarely used by the users. So I can focus on the main parts.
For the next few days, the Firefox extensions will not be available. I also have to update it. I’m sorry for the inconveniences.
Btw. I am looking for translators again. If you want to see mediaconverter.org in your language, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Every translator gets a one-year account on mediaconverter.org for free.
Have a nice day!
