The advantages of this script:

  • the video file size is displayed when you hover the mouse over the video tooltip
  • shows the bitrate, size and download progress of hls (m3u8) audio files

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.

Hotkeys

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.

If there are any errors, or the script does not work correctly, then:
  1. go to the Tampermonkey "control panel"
  2. select this script, check const DEBUG = 1 or const DEBUG = 3
  3. and save changes
  4. then refresh the vk page and open the console (for Chrome Ctrl + Shift + J -> Console tab)
  5. take a screenshot of the console and upload it here https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/38614-vk-media-downloader/feedback along with a description of the problem
