If you are not a developer please use the installer and not the code. 

If you are a developer, read above documentation for and see how you can use and .net

1. this is a free and open source application, so you can't demand that we will fix any problems whenever you want! (and for sure red or bold

or many "!!!" won't help, too.) We are not dumb so you don't need to highlight important stuff.

2. you could just create a custom command in TweetMyPC and use an external download-program to do the job

3. I will upload a working version (with support commented out) in a few hours if nothing important gets in the way

might take longer.... but you can help my by telling me how to deactivate the stupid twitter link shortener..... because that is causing the real problem.... (without tweetmypc could download the address)

There are 22,000+ users who downloaded and they did not complain about error. There are many developers who also download code and use their key.

We cannot spoon feed you with how to work with .net and api :-)  Its basic of .net and does not relate to tweetmypc.

There is code about how to use api in ,net and we have just removed the API key (Key is secret and should not be shared)

extremely  sorry for using red or bold fonts.

I am excited to get new working version. waiting for your  working version upload.

Thank you sir.

just uploaded this version supports downloading without using 

works like this:

tweet: "download" (you get a problem if there is http:// in front of the address because then twitter will shorten the link using, so just leave the http:// away)

that will save a file with the name filename123ABC.exe in the folder you specified for downloads.

you can update by opening tweetmypc, then clicking on About and then on Check for update.

very good update. now download code is working

thank you for the update.

Jul 26, 2011 at 10:11 PM

download code is working properly. 

but it would be more useful if it support downloading from  youtube, torrents or rapidshare.

because we download most of the file from these site.

i hope near future these feature will be added.

thank you

we are not going to support downloading youtube videos, torrents or rapidshare files because that is either not legal or already implemented by other programs (use custom commands for that)

how to use custom command to download youyube video or torrents???

plz give me an example. 

Jul 27, 2011 at 9:28 PM


or... I will give you that much information:

get a youtube download application that can be called with arguments over the command line / shell.

then set up a custom command in the TweetMyPC settings so tweetmypc knows when to call your application.

then tweet for example "youtubeCustomCommand" and tweetmypc will open your youtube downloader application and give it the youtube video address.


maybe that helps you... (If you want I can help you more/better if you pay me ;-)  )
