Since the number of users of the ViihdeHelper extension has increased quite a lot, I decided to create a beta channel for new features of the extension. This way, if there are bugs discovered during beta, it will only affect the beta testers, and not everyone that is using the previous stable version of the extension.
The beta version of the extension is not listed in the Chrome Web Store, but by going to http://bit.ly/ViihdeHelperBeta you will be taken to the web store page where you can add the beta extension.
Note, that if you don’t disable the “normal” version of the extension, you will get double the icons. Also, the beta channel is only meant for “advanced” users that want to preview and test out new (possibly broken) features before they are released to the public.
With that out of the way, a new version is now deployed to the beta channel. The version number is 4.4.5 and includes the following features and fixes:
- Fixed bug where the encoding UI was visible as default.
- Support for including the channel in the filename of the downloaded recording. The channel name will be added to the front of the file name if the setting is selected in the options dialog. The default value is false.
- Automatic stripping of @ and . and limiting to 17 characters for usernames. This means that if your username is an email address, you should be able to set it normally in the options dialog.
If you decide to test it out, please let me know in the comments on this post if it works as it should, of if you discover bugs.
