Hi guys,

I have a list of URLs in an e-mail message. A lot of URLs. How do I add them quickly to iGetter? I'm running 2.7.5 on a Mac.

Thanks a lot.

Here's an AppleScript to download a list of links copied to clipboard:

set URLlist to (the clipboard) as text
set lastDelimit to AppleScript's text item delimiters
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to ASCII character (13)
set URLlist to every text item of URLlist
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to lastDelimit
tell application "iGetter"
repeat with eachURL in URLlist
GetURL eachURL
end repeat
end tell

Hi Zengi, thanks a lot for the quick reply!
The script works smoothly.
But: When links appear in iGetter, I press Start (Auto) and they disappear (something like they get checked and removed). So, I tried a single link in Firefox (as an URL) and it's active: something is happening in iGetter.
I also tried some links found on the web, and using "FlashGot Selection", all the links pop up in iGetter and the download starts. There's something I'm missing.
Can you help me?

It's a bug in iGetter - when you attempt to batch download it fails but individual links work fine.

Rubisco,
This may happen only if you try to download files from servers that require session cookies as rapidshare.com and other filesharig services. See this thread how to use iGetter with such servers:

Hi, how can I set the name of the file I want to download through AppleScript? I can add the file to the queue, but can find a way to set the file name.

Thanks,
Massi

Hello Massi,
Currently, you can't set a file name through AppleScript. You can set URL, Referrer, Cookie text and Browser (if different than default browser) (see http://www.igetter.net/forums/showthread.php3?threadid=948).

When using AppleScript, iGetter extracts automatically file name from the URL. There is an option named "Automatically rename redirected files" at iGetter preferences, Advanced panel, which controls if file name should be renamed automatically when original URL points to another URL location.

Regards,
iGetter Support

Thanks for your reply support.
Setting the file name would be useful when multiple files shares the same base url, with different parameters. I can obviously change the name, manually, once the download has been added to the queue.
