How to download Amazon music to Linux desktop?


Hello All,

I have a bunch of music on my Amazon account that I would like to transfer to Google Play. It seems that Amazon doesn't support music downloads to Linux desktops at this point. If it did, I'd just download and then upload to Google Play Music. Anyone have an idea how for a workaround? Seems like there must be a way...

Thanks Much,

Thanks for the response! I've now set user agent to "Safari" and returned to music.amazon.com. I don't see an option though to download entire album as opposed to individual tracks. I must be missing something. Can you point the way?

Thanks

which browser?
which useragent string?
how did you change it?

clean out the cache and cookies and offline storage and whatnot, then restart the browser, then try again.

Chromium version 56.0.2924.87 (64-bit)
Install a user agen changer I use User-Agent Switcher for Chrome from the Chrome store.
Goto:
https://music.amazon.co.uk/home
->Albums
->(Your album)

Click the circle with 3 dots, select 'download', You may/will get a popup asking if you want to download an app for OSX at the bottom of the popup there is a line saying somthing like "No, just download normally ...", click that and you should start your save, in my case I get a file selector pop up as thats how I have set chrome up to handle downloads.

I don't think you can download albums at once except on the initial purchase. They give you a zip file with all of your bought tracks in it. I've done em 1 at a time. Fortunately I keep them local on my server though so it was a 1 shot deal. Theoretically I never need to download them again.
