What is "Bulk Media Downloader" extension and how does it work?
The “Bulk Media Downloader” is a browser extension designed to identify media resources on web pages. It actively monitors network requests and displays all media resources loaded in tabs. When a resource is added to the detection window, it provides details such as file name, size, and request origin. To keep the window organized, you can apply filters to display specific types of resources and avoid clutter. Additionally, the extension supports batch downloading by allowing you to select multiple requests at once.
It’s important to note that the extension does not monitor the network when the detection window is closed, ensuring it has no impact on your browser’s performance. To grab a media resource, open the detection window by clicking the action button. A badge appears on the action button when network monitoring is enabled. Once your desired resource appears in the window, you can press the “Pause” button to stop network monitoring. From there, you can select one or more items and use the “Download” button in the tools section of the window to initiate the downloading process.
Can I filter out other resource types to reduce the number of items displayed in the detection window when I want to grab a video file, for instance?
Yes, locate the "Type (all)" button in the header section of the window and click on it. Then, select "Type (video)" from the options provided. This selection will hide all other resource types, ensuring only video files are shown in the detection window.
When browsing a picture gallery, I notice that the detection window displays too many detected pictures. Is there a way to select all of them simultaneously?
To select all the pictures at once, locate the selection box in the header area of the window. Then, choose the "Select all images" option. This button will enable you to conveniently select and manage all the pictures displayed in the detection window.
What does the "R" badge notification on the action button indicate?
The "R" badge notification on the action button signifies the extension is recording network activities. It only appears when the detection window is open. However, to ensure minimal impact on your browser's performance, it is recommended to press the "Pause" button or close the detection window once the desired resource has appeared. By doing so, you can prevent any unnecessary network monitoring and maintain smooth browser performance.
