It has been built as a proof-of-concept to
demonstrate that whatever effort is made to prevent
songs downloading, those sites are still very
unsecure concerning the way musics are diffused. The
poc will probably be extended to more sites, as it
is based upon an inherant flaw they all have in
their streaming scheme.
You should solely use this program
to download "open" musics, which are copyleft, the
only ones that you can download without breaking the
law. I couldn't be taken responsible for any misuse
As the program is in beta state, it
must remains a lot of bugs, but it works anyway.
The program filters/parse every http
data which circulates between your browser and the
remote website. When a song from deezer or jiwa is
detected, it shows a dialog box asking to save the
music. Then it saves the stream into a temporary
file which is decoded when the download finishes.
How to use: you
need to (1) start the program and keep it open, (2)
change your browser proxy to the one specified by
the program (more on this
and below), and (3) to surf over to any of the
supported sites and launch a song. A "save file"
dialog will appear whenever a song is about to be
played, allowing you to save (or not). More info on
how to use here.
Portable: no installation. Just
unzip and run.
if changing your browser proxy manually doesn’t seem
very practical, you might want to take a look at
Proxy Manager (for Internet Explorer)
or QuickProxy for Firefox.
Imeem, Deezer, and Jiva.fm are documented; however,
the instructions in the program dialog itself read
"surf on your favorite HD radio site … the program
will do the rest". Not sure which other sites
Freezer will work with, but I did try it with
Last.FM and Pandora and it did NOT work; moreover it
does not work with non-encrypted sites that do not
use anti-leeching protection such as MixTurtle,
Songza, etc (I guess since the program wanted top
prove a point, there was no point to prove there.
