    1. I really hate web pages like this cause links they are giving are not working!!!! Luckily, I did some searching and FINALLY found the working and true file that you have been looking for! I'm in a great mood now so might as well share this to you.

      That's the direct link for the file. Have a great day!

  2. If this works and Chrome finally has an alternative to DTA this will be awesome.. but I'm a bit nervous to give this unknown extension the highest permissions allowed (full control of everything). Has any third parties reviewed your extension so I can feel safer?

  3. Hi Don, the extension needs an access to the displayed webpage in order to provide you a list of the downloadable files, the installation warning you get is a standard chrome warning, you can read about it here: http://code.google.com/chrome/extensions/permission_warnings.html

    Anyway you can install it offline and browse its code (chrome built-in developer tools) or give it to any third party to check my code.

    Is there anything else I can do to assure you it is safe to use?

  4. It is a good extension for chrome, but here are a few suggestions. Add an option to either download links or images, downloading everything means that I have to delete the thumbnails later. Let the user choose the download location for the current batch of downloads, some of us do not want to mix business with pleasure. Finally, create a query system so that the extension only downloads a certain number of files at a time, it took chrome a full minute to open the downloads tab. Thanks to this extension; I may switch to chrome, but please consider my suggestions to make this the best downloading extension for chrome.

  5. If you download more than 5 files at a time, only the last 5 files are downloaded. I know this is to do with how Chrome is set up. Is there a way to get around this problem?

    Thanks. Nice program

  6. Thanks for the comment.
    I didn't encounter such an issue (Chrome 16.0.912.63 m).
    All download should appear in Chrome Downloads page at chrome://downloads/
    Please tell me your Chrome version and I'll check this out.

    Thanks

  8. Japanese file name support would be great too.

    Something like this this: 20111231191500_【多】【字】【双】第62回NHK紅白歌合戦「あしたを歌おう。」_27_16200.ts.mp4

    Comes out like this:20111126100500_%e3%80%90%e5%ad%97%e3%80%91%e9%a6%96%e9%83%bd%e5%9c%8f%e3%82%b9%e3%83%9a%e3%82%b7%e3%83%a3%e3%83%ab%e3%80%8c%e9%81%8e%e5%8e%bb%e3%81%8b%e3%82%89%e3%81%ae%e8%ad%a6%e5%91%8a%e3%80%80%e2%80%9c%e9%a6%96%e9%83%bd%e5%9c%8f%e5%a4%a7%e5%9c%b0%e9%9c%87%e2%80%9d%e3%81%ab%e3%81%a9%e3%81%86%e5%82%99%e3%81%88%e3%82%8b%e3%81%8b%e3%80%8d_27_4510.ts.mp4

    1. Hi lanson,
      Download Master displays the links exactly as they appear in the website HTML.
      You can right click on the page, choose 'View page source' and see that this is how your link represented.

      Please give me a website address where you see this issue and I see what I can do.

  9. Hi lanson,
    I've added Japanese files support, tested but not released yet.
    You can send me an email to monadikotita@gmail.com and I'll reply with DM beta version attached.

  10. Great extension - love it, however suddenly can not access the options, it is grayed out. I have tried removing it and re installing. Any thoughts?

  11. Thanks for the feedback mark. I didn't implement any options, that's why it is grayed out. Please let me know what you tried to configure and I'll see how to implement it.

  12. Mona, I have not tried this yet but am in the midst of D/L now. What I really want to say is I appreciate that you actually read others suggestions and try and implement into your project. Usually you never hear answers to suggestions from others. You listen. Thanks!
