If you're a premium rapidshare member, this is moderately cool...

    This may be nothing new for some who read this, but for someone this might be pretty useful. I've been a premium user of Rapidshare for nearly 2 years & never really poked around in my premium login area.

    Whenever I downloaded multiple rar files (like DVD movies) I always used the usual method - copy & paste the link into the browser, then selected "Premium User"... then clicked the download button to get my files. Repeat about 20+ times depending on the source.

    Last night I was downloading from a source with about 60 rar files in it. I just renewed my account so I was auto-logged into the premium login area. I noticed the "settings" link up there & clicked on it for the heck of it.

    There is a check box titled: "Direct downloads, requested files are saved without redirection via RapidShare"

    Checked this box. Now everytime I load a rapidshare link into my browser, my download will automatically start. No multi-clicking through the hoops to the premium download page.

    Wow, I can't believe I missed that all this time. I know, what a putz... Anyway, I just thought I would share this just in case anyone else has never taken the time to check out their own settings.

    Yeah and it can even get better if you use Firefox and download the free addon DownthemAll.
    Code:
    [URL="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201"]https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201[/URL]
    You can highlight and select all of the links on a page and download up to 10 concurrent rapidshare links at once.

    I have been using this for months and you are right this is great.

    But here is another trick that maybe you are not aware.

    In your account, click RapidTools from the top navigation menu , and download the Rapidshare Manager. I use this on a regular basis and it's a real time saver for my downloads. You can insert all the links at the same time and voilà!

    The Rapidshare manager will only allow 5 simultaneous downloads at a time where as the Downtheall addon will allow 10.

    Nice!!! I didn't know about that either, thanks. :D

    I use the Firefox "DownloadthemAll" plugin as well. Rodneyprofit is right, it's a great plugin & I use it all the time. I can see advantages to both. I don't think you can paste all your links into DTA at the same time, but it looks like that you can with the Rapidshare Manager... Sweet. That's a definite time saver as well. I'll have to check it out.

    I appreciate all the great feedback.

    You can add every single link on the entire page with DTA at once. It does not matter if there are more than 100 links on the page. I had been using Rapidshare manager for months until I stumbled upon DTA and couldn't believe that it allowed this. Not to mention you can use DTA to download anything on a webpage including flv, swf, avi, or even images.
