Yetishare v5.1.0 Released!

By Adam posted on 15th December 2020

Hi all,

We've just released Yetishare v5.1.0 via your account on If you login and you're still within support, you'll see the link to download.

You can see it up and running on our demo site:
(login with user: 'admin' & pass: 'Password@Demo')

Overview of changes:

This release includes preview options for text based files, including syntax highlighting on code such as JS, CSS, HTML and PHP. Subtitle support for videos has been added (srt, vtt and txt) and the progress bar enabled on remote url upload.

We had some issues with the Wasabi plugin so it's been completely re-engineered. It previously downloaded files through your main site, which worked fine for smaller files however caused issues with various server timeouts when supporting large files. It also effectively doubled the bandwidth usage.

This has been changed so it now uses pre-signed download urls directly from Wasabi. When a download is requested, it'll generate a secure, time limited url at Wasabi and silently redirect the user to it. It makes a huge difference with performance.

Lots of other fixes and improvements have been included in this release, mainly fallout from the big v5 update. See the release notes below for the breakdown of changes.
