I am wondering if there is any software out there that I can input a domain name and have it crawl around in a guided manner and download videos by their url? I'm not talking of getting around security in websites, I'm talking about if I have authority to be in the website and download the videos/pictures/sound files then just have software that will download it for me?
If you have authority to the website, go to the source, their hosting site
Authority was probably the wrong word. Replace authority with i have access to the sites and can use the clips according to the user agreement, which i do but searching through 10s of 1000s of clips and trying to download a good portion of them from several places is time consuming and tedious. What about something where i can i input like a text file with the download links and do like a mass download?
