    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 :)

    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.

    It just takes so much longer to do stuff. I'm wondering if I should of been using AutoIt instead of Autohotkey?

    Oh oh - after starting bulk download, the windows explorer window of the MVD folder is constantly popping up - impossible to kill that process . had to restart windows :eek:
