downloading only media files

08/17/2005 12:26 am
this will prbably be wordy. i started to download a full adult website, but the size of the site is so huge it is basically stopping my computer. i have decided to only download media files, mov, avi, mpg, wmv, mp3, wma, jpg to try and reduce the download size as well. the site is very complicated in it`s structure, tons of cgi and php. i tried to set in the file filters not to download anything except these files, but when i do it downloads almost nothing. so i am trying again just to download everything and then delete the 300,000+ cgi/php/html files and pages i don`t care about now. if there is a way to just scan all files and pages for the files i want then i would love to know how. if not is there a way to keep OE from basically stopping my computer dead. thanks for any help you guys can give me

To download but not save HTML pages, please uncheck the File Filters | Text category in the Project Properties dialog. Regarding the software hangup - in most cases it happens when you download pages faster than Offline Explorer may process (parse) them. I would suggest you to set 2 seconds delay between downloads in the Options dialog.

when i uncheck the text files then the download stops after about 3 files, it you want privately to email me and i can give you the login and pass for the site, maybe you can look and see
