    Hey there, I'm just wondering if it is possible to create a multi-threaded rapidshare downloader that you can load up heaps of proxies too and then it goes to rapidshare and downloads the same file at the same time. Apart form the bandwidth and hard drive requirements, Is it possible for vb to do this or is their an easier language?

    i'm not a coder/programmer, but it doesn't seem to be an impossible mission

    there are already tools like jdownloader for the task w/o proxy support, implementing proxies not that hard i think (there also was a js trick which killed the RS counter, i'm not sure if it's still working or not):
    HTML:
    javascript:alert(c=0)
    but why do you want to download the same file at the same time, don't you wanna download multiple files simultaneously w/o waiting?

    You can do it in whatever language you like and are proficient in. All you have to do is crack open the javascript crap that triggers the download. If it can be done with a computer, you can automate it.

    Rapidshare uses a server-side download counter now so you would have to connect, wait for the counter, load the CAPTCHA into a picturebox (for manual solving) and submit.

    You can definitely do this in VB

    I would say though, it could be a rather difficult task for someone who has never made an HTTP request before.

    I've yet to hear of a program that can download each file consecutively (without waiting in between) using proxies.

    But so far, Mipony comes close next to the best downloader for these sorta files.
