Hi. I'm starting to use iGetter after using Speed Download for some time. It's great, much better than SD.
My question is relatted to Site Manager. Let's say I have 20 .rar files to download, I have a premium account on Rapid Share, so I have a username and password. The thing is, I can't find the way to insert the username and password only once, because each file has its own link. I then have to go one by one inserting username and pasword to each file.
Can anyone help out with this?

Thanks a lot.

Hello Rui,
You can try to enter the rapidshare site in the iGetter preferences, Site Manager. Unfortunately we don't have a premium rapidshare account but you can try the following. First, try to get the site entry from some of the downloads. Delete anything back to the ".com/" part of the URL. Or you can try these two entries:

We would be grateful if you post back the result.

No luck!
I just can't figure out how to do it. This process in Speed Download is easy, we simply create a new download, and add all the links at once using Flashgot, for example. Then we only need to fill the username and password for the Rapishare account once.
Unfortunatelly, this method wont result with iGetter, or maybe I'm missing something, because whaen I create a new download, it only let me insert one url.
Any ideas?

I tryed everything I can to make this work out. I add the links to iGetter, but then I need to go over one by one typing username and password. This is no good :)
Although i hope you solve this on the next version. I'm using the demo, and will probably buy it if this problem is solved. As I said on the other post, Speed Download is way easyer to do this, but iGetter is way way faster... so... I'll hold to see...

Best regards.

To enter the site authentication once for all downloads you should open iGetter preferences form menu iGetter. Then select the Site Manager tab and enter the rapidshare entries as described in our previous post.

Currently the "FlashGot All" command doesn't work as expected, so you can try to enter the web page URL directly in the iGetter "Process Web Page" Tools menu function or use the Safari "Download all with iGetter" CM command.

Well, it worked once. If the links to the files are hyperlinks, using Download All With iGetter works, but if the links are just plain text, I select Download All... and I get a lot of links to choose, but none of them is for the files.

Anything else I should try?

Much apreciatted for your help.

Ain't there some workaround for this? It's not quite funny to copy paste sometimes more then 30 files, one by one... :) Only the files that have active links can be added in one time. Unfortunately, most of them are just plain text...

Thanks again.

May be some advanced rapidshare user may help here. Unfortunately we don't have a premium rapidshare account and can't give you a fast solution, but you can try opening any of the plain text files in your browser and see what is the error. Also you can contact rapidshare and ask them about the problem.

Go to the rapidshare site and check your 'Options' panel, theres a setting for direct download.

Multiple URL Downloads

AppleScript may help.
This script sends contents of the clipboard to iGetter line by line.

1: Copy & paste this script to script editor or download from the link blow.
Save it in /Users/foo/Library/Scripts/

2: Enable AppleScript Menu by using
It's in ~/Applications/AppleScript/

Simply copy URL(s) from browser or anywhere, then run this little script from script menu.

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

I hope it helps.

RapGet is the easiest free program to use to download simultaneously multiple files from with your premium account.

To download heaps of links.. GO, file, import url list.

And just save them all on a simple .txt document!

I'd like to know as well.
I'd be great if one could highlight the non-clickable (or even clickable) links and batch drop them into Igetter.

Right im not sure whether its just me but it doesnt seem that iGetter & Safari & Rapidshare plays nicely when i comes to getting Safari to pass all downloads from Rapidshare to iGetter? I've gone under the iGetter menu, selected "Integration", and ticked "Watch for URL clicks", and restarted both iGetter & Safari. But when ive already selected for "Direct Downloads" under Rapidshare's premium page, whatever downloads from Rapidshare seem to be handled by Safari as opposed to iGetter. Any help?

Thanks Majenfa for the script. Due to incompatibilities in Leopard the "Import URL List" feature is broken, but your Applescript works just fine.

try this..

save all your URL in a text file but make sure that you have valid <html>
copy and paste your text file content here

now save the new file as download_link.html on your desktop. Now go to igetter > file > import URL...enjoy

You can try Linkrr ( without installing anything. It opens all your rapidshare links ;-)

Rui Guerreiro, go to your Premiumzone:
Then click button "Options", activate "Direct-downloads" by marking it.
Now your RS links are direct links to files and are easy to download.

Well, as long as iGetter can't really make use of plain text URLs, and are your friend(s)... ;-)

But please, iGetter support team - help us out here! I am on 10.4.9, Safari 2.0.4, and the CM doesn't offer single text URLs (or a list of them, mostly .rar files) to be handled...

I use FlashGot and iGetter.

In your premium rapidshare account, go to settings and click on the box next to direct downloads. Then, just select a link or a list of links from rapidshare, right-click (option click) and select FlashGot Link. If you have FlashGot set to work with igetter (if igetter is on your machine it will find it), all your links will now open and work in igetter.

Thanks for the the guy who posted that you need to apply direct downloads in your rapidshare account! That was exactly what I needed to do I kept downloading 2kb nothign files over and over!

I personally haven't found much to write home about with any of the speeddownload kinda things.. but I WAS tired of dealing with the individual links...
then I read this thread, found Linkrr... I highlight all the links at once, copy/paste into new window bookmarked to Linkrr on my safari toolbar... make clickable and relax.
and my entire life has become easier... thank you...
macheads, try it you'll like it...
if there is a drawback it's that each link opens a new blank window...
and you can't close them if you have docked the download window.
leave the d/l window open and you can close them all..

Still doesn't work

I think the major point here is that you can't successfully use the "flashgot selected" or have multiple RS text links selected and batch add them to iGetter. This used to work great, but doesn't under Leopard. I have to select each link individually and then choose either "flashgot link" or "d/l with iGetter" from the CM. When I try to add multiple links, none of them work, but by adding one at a time it works fine. No issues with account name / password.

For Presenta - why is this feature broken? It's an incredible hassle to have to add each link individually.

one thing to remember in Safari is that if you have a premium RS account, and have the cookie in our cache (it's there after you log in)... then you can just open the download window, select the files (w. your mouse) and drag them to the download window.

they will automatically start to download (as long as 1. they are not dead, and 2. links are redirected by some masking system)
