PHP Website (again!)

I`m sure this has been asked a million times before, but I`m trying to get all the wmv and jpg files off a site. The site requires a login and uses a random number verification system. The site also makes heavy use of PHP downloads by the look of it. On each movie page, you can select each individual video or select any number of them to package into a zip file. Every download manager I`ve tried (Mass Downloader, GetRight etc) just grabs a PHP file. So, what settings would I need to get these files? I`m testing the demo version if thats any help!

Maybe you should logon and enter the random code in the Internal browser of Offline Explorer first and then start downloading it?

This usually helps.

Is that done using the next link as new project tool? What settings would I then need for successful finding of the files? Do I just select movies and images in the file types and thats enough for the PHP stuff with all other settings on default?

Also, one unrelated question, as I`m testing the software with a view to purchasing, what are the limits of the demo?

Many thanks.

There are no limits in the trial version except expiration, so you can test all features of it.

It is hard to suggest you about settings without looking at the site. You don`t need to use the next link as a new Project. You can, but it is not that necessary. Simply logon the site and create a new Project with the address of the pag you want to start with. However if the site contains logout links, it might be good to use that tool, because it adds a line to skip such links automatically.

Thanks for your help! I got it to work but it also downloaded a few thousand assorted PHP and other files! Do I need to get these to be able to get the videos?

Also, I had to stop the download mid-way and I`m not sure its downloading the protected content now - its makes me wonder if its something to do with the number log-in system?

No. Perhaps, you will need to allow only the links you need using the URL Filters - Filename section.
