Important notes

Starting from version v2.1.0 it is available to download *.ts fragments of HLS playlist 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 (Http Live Streaming) instead of mp3. HLS consists of *.ts fragments. So in a new version v2.1.0 I have added *.ts downloader. One should use ffmpeg to convert *.ts fragments into a single *.mp3 file. For this purpose I've created scripts (bat - for Windows, sh - for Linux, MacOS) generate.mp3.bat, and generate.mp3.sh, they are included in a downloaded *.zip file

How to convert *.ts fragments into *.mp3 ?

  • install ffmpeg if you haven't done it yet (google helps you)
  • unzip downloaded *.zip file
  • run generate.mp3.[bat|sh], P.S. before you run the shell script make it executable: chmod +x generate.mp3.sh

If there are any errors or the script doesn't work correctly

  1. open Settings modal, see Settings section
  2. in the Settings modal select Logger tab and check Debug
  3. refresh vk page and open the Console (for Chrome browser Ctrl + Shift + J -> Console tab)
  4. try to reproduce the error
  5. take screenshots of all logs on the Console
  6. upload screenshots here https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/38614-vk-media-downloader/feedback along with a description of the problem
