Integrates the browser with JDownloader either by interrupting the built-in download manager or from right-click context menu
This extension enables connectivity between your browser and JDownloader, a Java-based download manager.
The extension offers two modes of operation:
1. It allows you to send downloading jobs directly from the right-click context menu.
2. It can interrupt the built-in download manager and redirect the requests to JDownloader.
By default, the interruption mode is inactive. Click the action button (toolbar button) once to activate it. To turn off the interruption mode, click the action button again?the interruption mode can help you when a website does not provide direct download links.
For this extension to communicate with JDownloader and execute native commands, a native client is required. The instructions for installing this NodeJS native client are provided when you use the extension for the first time. Additionally, please note that this extension only connects your browser to the JDownloader, so you must have the JDownloader application installed on your operating system for the extension to work.
You can review the code of the native client at:
A brief video tutorial on installing and using the native client is available at:
It is important to mention that this extension uses JDownloader's local server to send downloading jobs to the external downloader. The extension can work correctly without installing the native client as long as JDownloader is running in the background. The native client is only necessary to start the downloader when the server is not present.
