    "Just don't do eveything, it claims"

    May 12, 2012  |   By ervinsmith1024


    Installed this on several computers, I either don't know what i am doing or it don't know what it is supposed to do.


    Big download, with little results. Does not capture or grab anything as far as I can tell. Cut and pasted URl like it says, and nothing happens.


    Either its junk, or i don't know how to use it.

    It should. If the site or the links you are trying to download are not instantly picked up by JDownloader, you have to add it manually in the tool. Open the Linkgrabber tab and click on Add Downloads. Paste your downloads there and it should work.

    If it doesn't, it may very well be that your site or the link(s) you copy is not one of the thousands of sites JDownloader currently supports. In that case, please contact us and let us know that you want us to support your site, and we'll try to get it in the program as soon as possible :)

    It does work exactly like you described it.
    Maybe we didn't support that particular website.

    Please feel free to come to our IRC channel (http://jdownloader.org/knowledge/chat) or write us a ticket on http://support.jdownloader.org and we can do a teamviewer session to see what the problem is and fix it.
