  1. Thanks - it was happening with all videos. Although it was saying youtube-dl is up to date, I tried again after using sudo youtube-dl -U and that's now working
  2. Vitor you're a legend. Happy to pay for your time if you can identify what's going wrong here: I've run that command, youtube-dl is now up to date, but still showing URL invalid. Last time I used the workflow successfully was 2-3 days ago. Video link below. MacOS version: 11.2.3 Alfred version: 4.3.4 [18:08:50.910] Logging Started...

  3. I'm having the same issue - previously working but not anymore - I don't think I have brew installed on this machine. How did you update it? If I hadn't installed brew before, would there be a different way to update the dependencies?
  4. I see that preview shows the file size, is there any way to customise which fields show up in the file preview? For me, it only shows 'created' and 'modified', nothing I can see in the settings on how to change this.
  5. Thanks - makes sense. Once you got used to it, 125 searches/month would get used up fast. So the alternative is using a search engine that has a free API. Looks like: Bing Faroo Gigablast Entireweb Yacy Looks like the Bing workflow hasn't been supported for a few years
  6. Free version might be all that's needed for this: Basically, just trying to find a way to quickly find and copy a URL - with the right keywords you can bet it'll be the first result. Current process has default fallback as 'i'm feeling lucky', then opening that as a tab, copying the URL and pasting it into whatever I was doing. But there must be a way to take out the intermediate steps?
  7. Hi Andrew - I can now reproduce it with safari and brave: Device: M1 Macbook pro Reproduced by searching image on google: Right click >> Copy image - If you quit Alfred, does Brave hang when trying to copy an image? Once alfred is quit, brave works as normal Just checked with latest version of alfred - problem still persists. To fix you need to force quit alfred via activity monitor and relaunch
  8. What you were doing when the issue happened: Right click → copy image on Brave browser Whether you were able to replicate it - Replicable Include any screenshots that might help us Include the Alfred version & build number you are using - 4.3 Include your macOS version 11.0.1 Behaviour: The current tab and alfred both hang, and are not able to be opened. Alfred then needs to be force-quitted via Activity monitor
  9. I totally agree - this would shoot to my #1 use for alfred, I'm constantly sending people links which I just need to quickly locate, rather than the cumbersome process of searching it on a browser, copying the link, and sending. Anyone have any suggestions on this?
  10. Nice work man! This looks great. I hope they introduce this natively soon 🙏️
  11. Likewise man, this is brilliant. Any plans to include the iOS 14.2 emojis?
  12. You are a hero among men. Since evernote have kamikazed themselves this month, I've been looking for an alternative, but the key lacking feature in apple notes was their ⌘J search. This plugs that gap. Time to move over 💪
  13. Do you know of any search engines that allow use of their API for inline search? In lieu of this one, I now just have duckduckgo 'i'm feeling lucky' as my top fallback
  14. You legend! Is there a way to remove the need for the bm script filter to just search for the bookmark direct, like with the native bookmark search?
