Support Related FAQ
- Q: Why don't you add support for MP3?
YouTube offers only video files. Providing a feature to download just the audio
means the maintenance of a third party data center where the YouTube videos for
the requests will have to be downloaded and converted in to MP3. And this data
center should act as a server for the audio files created there by. This whole
process is quite expensive. And I do not have resources for that.
- Q: Why don't you write a version for Google Chrome?
I really don't have time for that. If you are interested in porting BYTubeD to
Chrome, please contact me. We can discuss how to go about it.
