Rapidshare AutoWait

By iampete Last update Dec 19, 2009 — Installed 202,579 times.

Script Summary: This script works as an automatic RapidShare downloader for free users. Compared to other scripts RS AutoWait is more advanced, it deals with all possible errors and responds accordingly. MOTTO: "Just open all links in the tabs and go play outside;-)"

Version: 1.0.23 (Dec 1, 2009)

MOTTO: "Just open all links in the tabs and go play outside;-)"

This script can automatically download files from RapidShare.com. It works like a normal download manager. On the first page it clicks on Free Download, then it waits until the download is ready (this also deals with all possible errors - another download in progress, 15 minute limit, session expired, and more.. ). Then it waits those few seconds during countdown and clicks on the download link.

It means that if you set up Firefox to download rar files without asking and set up a default download directory, you really don't have to care about anything else. You will still need to wait all those timeouts and countdowns, but you won't have to sit in front of your computer to do that;-)

The script also displays status messages in the window title, so you can see how all your files are doing.

Just try it out - your completely automatic Rapidshare download manager inside Firefox is here to help you.

I would really like to hear your opinions, or if you found a bug or want an improvement, just let me know.
