    Hi

    This is a little tool I made for downloading music videos for use with mvcentral plugin.
    With bulk mode you can download an entire music video library based on your music tastes overnight with only a few clicks.


    Installation

    Extract everything inside the zip into a folder
    Run MVD.exe
    Enter Download folder for music videos
    Enter any other music video folders in the box below

    Enable [x] Monitor Clipboard
    Right click a video link in youtube and click copy link
    If everything is working correctly you can now bulk download lots of videos

    Click Bulk Downloads
    Click Add Top Artists from Library. Choose 100 Artists.
    Enter details, Click Start
    Wait a few minutes, Review selection, Rename/Delete items.
    Click Finished. Click View DL List, this should show a list of videos
    Add more videos if wanted. Click Start Bulk DL, goto sleep.
    Wake up with a perfect music video collection based on your music taste :)


    Screenshots

    Changelog
    V3 - Initial release
    V4 - Cosmetic changes and multiple parallel downloads.
    V5 - Huge Change completely rewrote program works awesomely I love it.
    v6 - Fixed bug on bulk downloader was trying to open a folder instead of the bulk dl process :)
    v7 - Fixed bug causing some videos to be saved as title - artist instead of artist - title. Also fixed bug where Bulk DL's were being saved to normal DL folder.
    v8 - Lots of improvements, the main one being handling of special characters to autostart DL (so you can add shortcut to startup folder if you wish)
    v9 - GUI Improved for adding videos to download list. Added options to modify the DL List (Clear/Reset/Retry). Added options for Similar artists and top artists.
    v10 Added Pitchforktv. Fixed issue with bulk download trying to DL unlimited # of simultaneous DLs at once.
    v11 - special character tweaks. russian tweak. Broke similar artists (?v10) now fixed it.

    To Do
    Add button to retry previously skipped + failed files.
    Add option to automatically resume downloading bulk files on startup

    Add additional sources of music videos
    eg. Last.FM user groups or tags.
    Add support to add music videos based on last.fm recommendations, etc...
    Add support to download youtube playlist.
    Add better support for funny characters
    Button to clear user cache / Button to clear entire cache



    Download

    Then add the latest patch

    thanks mate. with this tool i batch downloaded and added 450 music videos all perfectly named to my music video collection. only had to rename 6 files. all the names match perfectly with mvcentral plugin bc the names come from music brains database. and to iget more videos i just have to go onto last fm andadd the names of similar users.
