I've been using iGetter (currently 2.3 & Safari 1.0) to download audio books from audible.com for a couple years now. But suddenly today Safari won't switch over to iGetter, and does the download itself.

I tried donwloading another file on another site and that worked fine: iGetter took over and covered the download.

What's up?

Hello Thomas,
It seems that the download from audible.com that you mention has an extension not listed in the iGetter preferences, Integration panel. Please, verify that files not intercepted by iGetter are included in the iGetter integration preferences. Or just download those files by the browser's contextual menu function "Download with iGetter".

Regards,

What extension for Audible.com?

"It seems that the download from audible.com that you mention has an extension not listed in the iGetter preferences, Integration panel. Please, verify that files not intercepted by iGetter are included in the iGetter integration preferences."

You say in this thread add the extension, but what is the extension to be added? Control-click download gives a file called "ref=mp" which is some kind of database fetch.

Igetter does nothing with Audible downloads. How do i fix this?

Hello,
This is a ten years old thread and current audible downloads use ".aax" extension. However, here is what currently works with Audible.com:

1. Firefox works without any problems. You just need to enable "Add Contextual menu support for Internet browsers" and "Integrate with Internet browsers" options at iGetter preferences, Integration panel. When you click on an Audible download, the Firefox "Save As" dialog should appear where you can simply choose the "iGetter" option. Audible downloads work only on Mac. On Windows, they change the download link to a small "admhelper" file which only their download utility may handle.

2. Unfortunately, Safari always takes Audible downloads on its own, because they are send as attachments. The only workaround is to pause the download in Safari and use "Copy Address" contextual menu command. Then paste it directly in iGetter (menu Edit -> Paste (Cmd+V)). It should download in iGetter without any problems. The downside is that you have to delete uncompleted Safari ".download" file from your downloads folder. Here is how to copy a link in Safari:

Audible.com and Mac OSX Chrome

" Hello,

Chrome? Is there a work around for Chrome?

We can't test Chrome, right away, but most probably it will not work due to the new ".aax" file type. We will add it in the next versions of iGetter, but unfortunately Google plan to stop NPAPI plugins in September (Chrome 45). We have to find a new method to integrate iGetter with Chrome (apart from CM commands which will continue to work). It seems that only clicking on an Audible download currently works and CM commands will not help here.

In theory, this is how to add Audible file extension. Open iGetter preferences, Integration panel and add "aax" (without quotes) at the end of currently included extensions, i.e. "sit, bin, hqx, zip, gz, tgz, dmg, aax". Also, enable NPAPI plugins in Chrome 42 or later as explained here:
