How to download

Post by Tuberous Chairs » Wed 22. Oct 2014, 17:31

So far as I can work out, we can either play Legamus files on our computers or download a whole book as a zip file and then open it. Is there a way to download chapters/sections rather than a whole book so that they can be listened to on a MP3 player? The book I recorded is nearly 27 hours long which I think is rather long to download in one go.

Click "download all sections", which will take you to the download page: http://listen.legamus.eu/proust_buddinggrove/
Then you can either download the zip or each individual file :)

When I click on download from that page it plays the section but I don't think it downloads. Maybe I'm just being stupid but I can't find a new file on my computer that I can move to my MP3 player.

Sorry, I hadn't tried it.
Right click on the download links and select "save link as" or something like that, depending on your browser. I did try that and it works :)

I did some tricks to make sure that when you click on a "[download]" link, at the right of each line, your browser will start the download and will not start playing it or opening it directly with an application on your computer. The idea was that you do not have to right-click and choose explicitly "save link target as".

If this does not work for you, please tell me what browser you use. I might be able to include some more tricks.

It doesn't work for me - I use Firefox.

Hm, me too! We very likely just have different configurations.

I applied the more advanced tricks I announced. Could you restart your Firefox and try again?
