Integrates the browser with JDownloader either by interrupting the built-in download manager or from right-click context menu
This extension connects your browser to the JDownloader. JDownloader is a Java-based download manager.
This extension offers two operation modes:
1. Sends downloading jobs from the right-click context menu
2. Interrupts the built-in download manager and redirects your requests to the JDownloader
The interruption mode is not active by default. To enable it, click on the action button (toolbar button) once. Whenever the interruption mode is not needed, click the browser action button again to disable this optional feature. The interruption mode is helpful when a website does not provide the download link directly.
Since this extension needs to execute native commands to communicate with the JDownloader, a native client is needed. The instruction to install this NodeJS native client is shown on the first use. Also, note that this extension only calls the JDownloader, so you need to have this application on your operating system for this extension to work. You can check the code of the native client on https://github.com/belaviyo/native-client/releases. There is a short video tutorial about the installation of the native client and its usage:
Also, note that this extension uses the JDownloader's local server to send downloading jobs to this external downloader. Even if you don't install the native client, the extension works fine if the JDownloader is running in the background. The native client is only used to run the downloader when the server is not present.
