How to download video, music from VKontakte (vk.com)
On thumbnails of the video a button will appear - “Download video”. When you hover the mouse over this button, a list of videos available for downloading will open. To start the download - click on the desired video resolution.
On the video player, the download button will appear in the lower right corner.
When you hover the mouse over the audio range, a button for downloading music will appear at the right end of the audio sequence. Click the button to start the download. IMPORTANT: do not close page before download completes.
Alt+R - restart script (usefull if the download button not loaded in some pages) For Aria2 users: Alt+A - get all links to media files (video, audio) Alt+S - save text file with received links
P.S. It is not recommended to use Alt+A, especially if there are a lot of media files on the page, since a separate request is sent to each media file (100 files - 100 requests). Instead, you can hover the mouse over the save button as before - this initiates a request for a file link, and then press Alt+S, to save the links.
Since version v2.2.0 the Settings Modal is added. To open Settings Modal click on VkMD button on top-left corner of a page.
Starting from version v2.1.0 it is available to download *.ts files archived into a *.zip file: - source/stream.001.ts - source/stream.002.ts - source/*.ts - generate.mp3.bat - generate.mp3.sh - README.txt - %filename%.txt
Why is it needed? VK now uses hls instead of mp3. hls consists of *.ts files. So in a new version v2.1.0 I have added *.ts downloader for further concantenation of the *.ts files into a single *.mp3 file by using ffmpeg. Such *.mp3 files have clear sound without distortions.
How to concatenate *.ts files into a single *.mp3 file?
install ffmpeg (google helps you)
run generate.mp3.[bat|sh] (bat - Windows, sh - Linux, MacOs) before you run the shell script make it executable > chmod +x generate.mp3.sh
If you want to download *.mp3 files directly, then set DOWNLOAD_TS = false. But be aware, that such *.mp3 files may have sound distortions.
If there are any errors, or the script does not work correctly, then:
go to the Tampermonkey "Dashboard" open Settings Modal (click on VkMD button)
select this script, check const DEBUG = 29 or const DEBUG = 31
and save changes go to Logger tab, check all logger options, Save changes if autosave is unchecked
then refresh the vk page and open the console (for Chrome Ctrl + Shift + J -> Console tab)
try to download a media
press Shift+S to save logs; if nothing happend, then just take screenshots of the console
