    Default How to download mp3 file's from a webpage which are hidden or not visible.

    Hi I am Rupesh from India and I visited a web page which consists of 200 + of mp3 files and I want to download all the files automatically not through manual I mean right click on the link and select option save link as.

    Previously I have downloaded mp3 files from a web page by first saving it to htm file and then copied all the links containing .mp3 to a text file. After that I have downloaded files using download manager by importing the above text file.

    The interesting fact about the current page I want to download is that I saved the page as .htm and opened it in a text editor but unfortunately I found only single line containing .mp3. I have visited that webpage in Firefox browser and clicked on some links then Firefox is playing those files using it's player.

    I can definitely say that the current webpage consists of more than 200 mp3 files but I can't find lines containing .mp3 in the webpage which is saved as text file.

    The author's of webpage kept these files freely I mean anyone can download at free of cost but with above drawbacks.

    I want to download mp3 files from the current webpage only I mean without web spidering.

    Previously I have downloaded mp3 or other media files from a similar webpage in Firefox browser using an add-on called download helper but at present it is not working.

    I am providing the webpage address and so please try to examine it and suggest a method to download all mp3 files contained in the page. Are there any specific tools for downloading files from such pages.

    The link is https://andhra-telugu.com/bhakti/
    Regards,
    Rupesh.

    Yes, rather unfortunate...

    I have visited that webpage in Firefox browser and clicked on some links then Firefox is playing those files using it's player.
    That is because the website owner is allowing the files to be streamed... It's unlikely the owner wants you, or indeed anyone else, to freeload the audio.

    I also feel rather a déjà vu moment coming on.

    Is it possible to download such mp3 files from a website which are created for streaming.

    Hi
    If you know the format of the files.....

    In Firefox, select a track to play, then right click on the player and view page info, under the media tab shows the mp3 and location.

    For example;
    Code:
    http://www.andhra-telugu.com/files/Bhakti/Hanuman/M_S_Rama_Rao-Hanuman_Chalisa.mp3

    Doing so would likely violate the copyright the owner of the files is
    trying to protect. We're not going to help you violate someone's
    copyright.

    Ask the copyright owner if you can obtain the file offline. That's the
    best solution here.

    The subject in those threads are different than the current need. At present I am able to play media files in the Firefox browser but unable to download even using wget.

    In the current forum I have posted up to 192 then why can't you provide all the links and then say " have you tried what others suggested in those threads ".

    One of you has replied that those files are created for steaming and so can you try to suggest how to download those files.

    Rupesh.

    Rupesh, I would respectfully suggest you read again, if indeed you actually read it, post #6.

    Also, from the title of this thread, "How to download mp3 file's from a webpage which are hidden or not visible.", does not the "hidden or not visible" perhaps indicate the site owner doesn't want the files freely downloaded?

    There is a marked difference between allowing material to be listened to by streaming and allowing the free download, and possible redistribution, of copyrighted material. I wouldn't want my work stolen, and I'm sure you wouldn't either
