Around May 2022, Instagram modified the web page so that some media could not be downloaded (especially Reels). From this script version 1.13, a new method of fetching media url has been added and is enabled by default (not yet applied to Story). This new method can obtain full resolution pictures (to be verified) and all media can be downloaded at present, but the disadvantage is that the speed of fetching URLs is slow (download speed has no effect) and may have some bugs. You can set
disableNewUrlFetchMethod to true if you don't want to use the new method. Or you can set
prefetchAndAttachLink to true in order to prefetch the URL info.
This script can be configured by modifying the following constant variables in the head of this script.
disableNewUrlFetchMethod: boolean, disable new url fetch method which uses info API
prefetchAndAttachLink: boolean, attach the link into the button elements if true
postFilenameTemplate: string, naming rule for media downloading in the post
storyFilenameTemplate: string, naming rule for media downloading in the story
replaceJpegWithJpg: boolean, replace
