Ubuntu Lucid Lynx: JDownloader for Easy File Download from MegaUpload CodeUnit 19 JUL 2010

If you enjoy downloading files from those useful but not always so user friendly online dump sites like megaupload.com, rapidshare.com or mediafire.com to name a few (be it as a premium OR free member), then taking a look at the clever file downloader named JDownloader might well be worth your while.

JDownloader is an open source, platform independent file download manager written in Java. It’s particular strength lies in downloading files from so-called one-click-hosters and as such handles all the annoying little things like automatic link decryption, as well as offering multiple parallel stream downloading, captcha recognition and automatic file extraction. It can import CCF, RSDF and DLC files, and in general is just a pretty useful file download manager to have running on your system.

To get it installed on your Ubuntu 10.0.4 Lucid Lynx installation is as easy as running the following from a terminal console:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jd-team/jdownloader
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install jdownloader

Nifty.

FileCrop: RapidShare and MegaUpload Search Engine CodeUnit 17 MAY 2010

I’ve mentioned the great MegaDownload.net RapidShare and MegaUpload search engine on this site before, but now a new site has caught my fancy, namely FileCrop.

Like I mention above, at the heart of it all, FileCrop is simply a search engine in the sense that it collects links to uploaded files hosted on RapidShare and MegaUpload, two of the Internet’s biggest providers of public accessible file drop sites. This of course opens up a wealth of download possibilities, be it downloads for those hard to find anime episodes you are looking for, or perhaps an desktop application you no longer can locate an official download point for.

FileCrop is quick, features a growing database of about 22 million links, is simple to use and doesn’t seem to feature any adverts or spam content. It gives a good amount of detail about the files retrieved based on your search criteria, and goes that extra step in allowing you to dictate in part where it searches and in what size range the results should be.

Slick, works well and a great little tool to find those gems you like holding on to as entertainment on those frequent little tea breaks of yours.
