New !! eSnips Downloader for Dummies

As eSnips has changed it’s default music player from windows media player to a flash player, old download tricks have stopped working.

Although the doc to nsdoc trick still works with downloaders like Flashget and Orbit (Grab++), it isn’t working when the URL is changed in the address bar of the browser itself and by pressing Enter. Only a blank page will appear when done so.

To let users continue downloading from eSnips without taking the pains of modifying each URL, I have rewritten the code of the eSnips Downloader (Link Generator). Find the link in the sidebar of my other music blog : It allows you to download as before. You can click on the generated link, or if you like, save the file by right clicking the link and save target as…

But the bandwidth problem still persists. eSnips is not the same place as it used to be before. As for me, I have stopped uploading more to my music folders.

Meanwhile continue downloading files from accounts that have no bandwidth problems (those with less visitors).

Enjoy !!

    I agree with you completely. The downloader’s honeymoon at “” I almost over. We have to search for the greener pastures now. I have found one. Though not a very big colection of songs, but when you are frastated with esnips you can find some reprive here. Keep trying new things to work around the policing at esnips

    Well I was trying to download a song with this Snips Downloader. I’ve been using it for quite a while but now… its not working.
    What I usually do is paste the URL in the snips generator and the window of saving documents opens. But now, the window from the snips generator takes me back to the same window where I got the URL from.
    I’m I doing something wrong? Do you have any other method to download music?

    Nothing could be done to bypass the bandwidth problem, atleast till now. Maybe some software geek will come out with a solution.

    As for now, keep trying to download the file at an appropriate time. I may just give you a hint. Try between 10 am – 12 pm IST.

    I got the file ” Hariprasad Chaurasia’s Vaishnav jan to.” in flashget but the progress is 0% showing its not downloading.
    the software is trying to download but I think esnips is restricting it.

    Dear Sir,

    The generator link whic you had so brilliantly designed doesn’t work now, since yesterday. Can you please look into this and advise what I should do next to record the files without the download button.

    Many thanks in advance, Sir.

    With best regards,
