doubleTwist bugfix release

We just pushed out another doubleTwist release. It fixes the following issues:

  • Fixed the exception that was occurring if you had http entries in your iTunes library (e.g. streaming radio)
  • doubleTwist now displays properly if you are running Windows at 120dpi
  • Allows + sign in e-mail addresses

You should be getting a notification in the application that there is an update available. If you don’t want to wait for the notification, right click on the doubleTwist tray bar icon and select “Check for update”.

To report bugs, please use our contact form or send them directly to me if you’d prefer that.

Issues that are still not fixed include:

  • iTunes is not detected if your iTunes library is in a non-standard location.
  • If you are behind a corporate proxy server, the installer and/or login to doubleTwist may fail.

Ideas on the next doubleTwist UI

Here is one of the concepts we came up with for the share section of doubleTwist. What do you think? We’d like to make it as easy as possible to share the content you’ve created, whether it’s stored on your computer or a connected device, with your friends. When you connect a device such as a Nokia N95, it shows up under My Devices and you are able to share media directly from your device just like in the current UI. The area in the bottom right corner is a mini player that lets you preview videos before you share.

doubleTwist desktop has launched

After a lot of hard work, we’ve finally released doubleTwist desktop. The goal of doubleTwist is to simplify the flow of media across devices and social networks. To give an example: say you shot a video with your Nokia N95 cellphone. How do you send that video to your friend and make sure he’ll be able to play it on his iPod or Sony PSP? Yesterday, the easiest solution was to give up. As of today, the answer is doubleTwist. With doubleTwist, you’ll be able to share and sync digital media without worrying about codecs and bitrates.
