February 9, 2010

There has been some problems with the new SD/HD settings, so leechr now checks for old settings and won’t run until you fix them 🙂 It should clear up some of the confusion.

Grab from: http://code.google.com/p/leechr/ or just let Leechr auto-update 🙂

v0.4.8.3 (with helpers.dat v37) – Released 09 Feb 2010
– Changed default GET_HD_VIDEO setting to False.
– Added some checks for old config settings.

Leechr: Notice about SD/HD content

February 4, 2010

As of the way Leechr handles SD/HD content has changed.

DONT_GET_ANY_720P, ONLY_720P and NOT_720P have been replaced and are no longer usable.


Please check example.conf for details.

Leechr also now tells you which version it is looking for on the search line.

I hope this clears up some issues.
