What's a good program to auto download from file hosting sites?
I'm running Linux Mint 6 which is Ubuntu 8.10. I'm trying to find a good program to auto download from file hosting sites like Rapidshare free, and Megaupload. I tried JDownloader which is available for both Windows and Linux but couldn't get the linux version to run properly. Thanks.

What do you mean by "auto download"? Maybe write a cron job with wget.

In other words, load a bunch of Rapidfire files and have it automatically download the files one after the other without having to do it manually.

Rapidshare is definitely the best source of file direct-downloads and a quick-access online file depository in the Web. You can count on Rapidshare. Guaranteed.

rockershive, this is not a sales forum. Commercial enticements like this are against the spirit of the forum, and the broader Free Software community. Please cut it out.

jacatone, do you have premium accounts with megaupload &/or rapidshare?

If so rapisucker is a good script to use. It needs to be updated to work with megaupload since their site update, but it is actively maintained & so that's not a problem:-


Another good RS cli downloader for premium users is Modrapi. I've been using it without incident for quite a long time now.


If you want to download as a free user there are several tools available from Google Code. Some are commandline scripts that are very easy to use (copy some links to clipboard, type megaupload-dl -c and the links are autodownloaded, similar script is available for rapidshare). Others have gui's, like Slimrat. - for free MU users with no premium account - d/loader with gui, works for file multiple hosts
