So I am trying to download large files from a website that I have to log into (I'll just say it, it's for pr0n), but I have incredibly slow DSL. It takes several hours to download even a low resolution full length movie (usually around 300MB - 500MB). I think the issue that I am having is that the websites (I've tried all of the major ones) auto logs me out before the downloads complete, thereby cancelling my download. I get a "download failed - unknown network error" or something similar depending on what browser I am using, and I've tried all the major ones of those as well. 

 

Is there a download manager where I could possibly enter my log in credentials into it so that the websites won't log me out or at least pause the download so I could resume after I log back into the site? If there is a way to queue downloads as well, so it would only download one at a time that would be very helpful too. 

 

Please help me and my right hand.

 

Thank you,

 

Jim

Any other suggestions? It doesn't have to be free either. I would gladly pay for the software if it solved my problem.

 

I have been trying out eagleget, and I love it, but am still having the same issue even though I put my log in credentials for the website in the site manager. After almost exactly an hour after I have no activity on the website, EagleGet gives me an "Access Forbidden by Server" error on all of my queued downloads. I log back into the website then try to "refresh download address" on EagleGet, but no luck. Even trying to re-download it does nothing. I have to delete the download from the queue, then go back to the specific link to the video and add it again. I am posting this issue to the eagleget forum as well in hopes of a solution. Thanks for the suggestion. It's a fantastic download manager if I could get past the issue of logging in.

Trying Download Ninja right now. It seems to have potential. I've paused the download, logged out of website, then started Ninja again, and it resumed download even though I am not logged into site on the browser. Only potential problem is it is saving the file as a .htm instead of a .mp4. It is the correct file size though (616MB), so I am hoping I can rename the extension to .MP4 and have it work. We shall see. It also saves the file as a generic name (members_domain_com.htm) instead of the actual video filename. NBD as log as it works. Thanks, I'll let you know in a few hours if the DL completes.
