New Flickr Downloadr version that fixes the "missing originalsecret" bug
July 18, 2008
Flickr Downloadr is one of my little fun side projects. It was originally a throwaway code kind of thing, but I’m glad some people have actually find it useful. I plan to keep it up and maintain in its current state, as its pretty stable.
There was an annoying bug there where sometimes it would tell you something about “missing originalsecret” instead of downloading images. I think that this happenened if either of the following is true:
- the user posting the images does not have a Flickr Pro account
- the user posting the images has disabled downloading original images
I now published a new version that just downloads smaller images if the originals are not available. Get it at the wiki page.
