« on: April 30, 2006, 02:31:23 PM »

that's an interesting question actually..
the best way would be to use some tool to open each url on a web page in turn, in a batch process, with url snooper running all the while.  might be something worth implementing if it doesn't already exist.  let me know what you or others can find regarding an existing program..

Thank u for u reply well i know vb6 but i never did any batching with it to open urls.If that can be done it should have an option to close the window an open new one for each url and do this very fast without having to wait the media  finish playing!! I did many search i could not find one!! I hope i get some info from others if such program aleady exist.Thanks

Would HTTrack work for this?

hi smartazz,
it might - though there may be cases where you really need to have your browser be told to open the files in order to scan the page properly.

for example, imagine you have a list of urls to pages with multimedia radio players on them, which you need to actually open and start playing before a url will be found.

in that case you really need a program that will force your browser to open each url, pause a bit in order to give the radio activex time to start, and then load the next one.

but most of the time i would think a program like httrack would be sufficient.  nice find.

nettransport has a simple 'add batch download' feature

blah.com/blah?file=3005

lets say you want file=2000 to file=3000

open net transport, go to add batch download
enter blah.com/blah?file=(*) then put in wildcard 4 digits
2000 to 3000 , bingo!

some other programs can do this too like Offline Explorer
