running wget multiple times

hi there,

I'm currently collecting game videos from net. Most of these are avi files and I don't like typing "wget url/filename" every time I found a file that I want on my server.

I want to make a list of the url's on a document and *then* I want wget to run through that document and download all the links(files) in that document. Is it possible?

I found this on the man pages. it looks like what I have been trying to accomplish. If this doesn't work . I'll post again.

Read URLs from file, in which case no URLs need to be
on the command line. If there are URLs both on the
command line and in an input file, those on the com-
mand lines will be the first ones to be retrieved.
The file need not be an HTML document (but no harm if
it is)---it is enough if the URLs are just listed
