Magpie Direct download for Firefox users
I download a ton of audio and video. Samplings from podcasters, video blogs, free MP3s from band Web sites and other random Flash movies and entertainment are all part of my daily searches. I’m in full gathering mode when I’m searching for new media stars. There are plenty of download grabbing tools capable of finding files when I’m in searching based on keywords, but when I find a band Website or cool short films on a site, I don’t want to bother with dozens of right-click save target as operations. Using Magpie in Firefox, I can automatically save all the files of types I specify, like MOV, WMV, MP4, MP3 and WMA by using a keyboard shortcut. Magpie saves me time. It also has a neat trick of downloading all the files in a numbered sequence.
