  1. hi dear talented Mona ,
    your extension is amazing,but
    if you put some changes on it
    to can work with IDM(internet download manager)
    it'll be awesome!!
    will you consider this for us ?

    1. Hi C.M.Mahdi Kamali,

      thanks a lot for your feedback.

      I've installed IDM and played with it a little bit.
      It is technically possible to bind DM and IDM (although complicated), however it seems to be much easier and straightforward for IDM to implement "Download all links" in their existing IDM Chrome Extension (exactly as they did in IE).
      Did you suggest such a feature to IDM guys?

      Thanks,
      Mona

    2. I really hate web pages like this cause links they are giving are not working!!!! Luckily, I did some searching and FINALLY found the working and true file that you have been looking for! I'm in a great mood now so might as well share this to you.

      CLICK THIS LINK TO DOWNLOAD THE FULL WORKING FILE

  3. Hi mona i have some issue to download embeded swf thing (flash video or flash videogame) from a page (example http://www.funny-games.biz/slender-micro.html )
    the plugin seem to don't find any swf file...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Xion,

      Download Master retrieves all the links and images from the webpage. Now swf files are sometimes placed as a link and sometimes as embeded tag (like in your example).
      Currently Download Master does not retrieve the embeded tags content as not all of them lead to downloadable files, so I need to do some checking before displaying it.

      If you want I can build a fast version for you which does that without much testing, just send me an email to monadikotita@gmail.com

      Thanks,
      Mona

  4. Good morning, Mona!

    I'm a Multiply user who is looking to download some media files from my account, and had a few questions about the app. I've never been a tech savvy person, so please forgive me if my questions seem to... general or (for lack of a better word) dumb.

    First, the app says it can access all the website activities, and my tabs and browsing activity. If I were to used Internet Explorer instead of Google Chrome, would your app be able to access my activity through that browser as well?

    Second, in all honestly, I've never been one for apps and multiple browsers other than Internet Explorer. I simply wanted to get my media from Multiply and have that be the end of it (I've never been too "in-tune" with technology, and stick to the basics). Will I be able to uninstall the app after I download my media?

    Thank you for your help and designing an app that can help me keep my memories. Unfortunately, some of the people in the media on Multiply that I'm hoping to download, passed away and I would like to keep those photos and videos. Thanks so much again for your time.

    1. Hi Adrienne Villalpando,

      thanks for your interest in Download Master, here are the answers to your questions

      First:
      Download Master is a Chrome extension thus it can be installed only in Chrome and not on any other browsers (they have their own great extensions)
      The privacy warnings are standard for Chrome extensions, they indicate the use of some Chrome APIs like I do in Download Master.
      Here is a map of all the warnings you see and their reason http://developer.chrome.com/extensions/permission_warnings.html

      Second:
      Although Download Master is safe to keep, you can uninstall Download Master anytime and it want leave any traces on your computer or any browser.

      I hope Download Master will help you to keep those important pictures.

      Please let me know in case you need any more assistance.

      Thanks,
      Mona - monadikotita@gmail.com

    I keep getting the "Pending for page to finish loading" message even though i've waited for like 30 mins. Would appreciate your kind assistance.

  7. Dear Developer,

    First of all, I would like to thank for your efforts. It's one of the most important extension when I'm in the process of switching to Chrome.

    Now I have a request: An option to rename files based link names.

    The idea from downTHEMall. They've done more advanced renaming masks. http://www.downthemall.net/howto/help/english-menu/renaming-mask/

    As a beginning Download Master can start to support the most useful feature.

    Best regards,

    1. Hi mringn,

      Download Master is an extension so you need to look for it at
      chrome://chrome/extensions/

      In case it is installed you should see an icon of two blue arrows on the top right corner of Chrome, just near the options button.

      Please let me know if you need any more support.

  15. Hi Mona! I'm just wondering what happens to files with the same names? Do the more recent downloaded files replace the earlier downloaded ones with the same name?

    I've just used Download Master to retrieve my photos from Multiply, but upon the download completion of what what amounted to more than 8K photos, I noticed that some photos (from different albums) weren't present in the download destination, so I'm currently redoing the process.


    Many thanks! Will totes appreciate your response!=D

    1. Hi sun,

      sorry for the late response, hope this is not too late.
      Download Master uses Chrome's built-in download mechanism thus the effect will be the same as if you manually tried to download several files with same name, Chrome will just give them the name adding (1) to the name, e.g. sun.jpg, sun(1).jpg

      Thanks, for the many thanks :)

  21. it would really help if you added some kind of capability to auto rename files according to some kind of algorithm, like rename according to link name. actually that one specifically, but i'm sure other options might also be useful.

  22. It seems it doesn't detect the files that page is automatically downloading? I am trying to download the Ubuntu from the Ubuntu page and I want to download it through Download Master but it doesn't show the .iso file (used the filter). Can this work against network related issues? I meant to ask can it resume the download after any network/internet connectivity issues arise?

    1. Hi Kiran,

      I tried to reproduce the issue you are reporting.
      1. Browsed to http://releases.ubuntu.com/precise/
      2. Chose one of the iso for download
      3. Download Master started the download
      4. I disabled and enabled back all network interfaces on my laptop, simulating network disconnection
      5. I opened chrome://downloads/ and so that the iso resumed its download

      I want to help you, but I need you to describe your steps and give more details of the failure, please.

  26. Would it be possible to download whilst in full screen mode? It is not possible to "see" the taskbar/extension bar in fullscreen and hence no way to download anything.

    Embedded catalogues are what I am after, and it would be great if the jpg/pdf can be be downloaded per page change. As an example of what I am trying to do please see http://www.weizter.co.za/index.php/products/catalogues/book/6-white-and-pastel-kitchens/1-online-cataloques

    These are made under flash
