      If you notice it only gives you 30 Seconds of the song and since it so short your player repeats it.

    I noticed random times not working…not working now. Downloads as a 0.file an name. Haven’t payed attention to the days and hours this happens, only that it happens. I’m assuming, to many people using service, maybe?

    I use Allavsoft to download Music and Songs from Soundcloud, Spotify, Deezer etc.

  12. Dave Croft says:

    Doesn’t work on private streams, possibly because the share buttons aren’t there and it can’t find the DIV to append the button to?

    I tried to use the SCDL download button for the audio file at but it will not download even though it shows ‘SCDL currently downloading 1’.

    I also tried to use the webpage at to download the file, but it will not download there either. That webpage usually works, although I sometimes have to try 2 or 3 times, but I cannot get this file to download after numerous attempts.

    Can you help?

    Hi, your plugin is awesome!, but can you add function to download all tracks of choosed artist or first 500 tracks(number can changes)?

  20. David says:

    Great app on Firefox, tho please could you remove the “SCDL currently downloading Nothin” banner and just have an alert when downloading. Thanks

  21. Hi, for anyone on Chrome, please unpack the crx file first as a folder. Then go to your extensions page, enable developer mode and click load unpacked extension, select the unpacked folder and the extension should install like normal.

    Also to Mr VVhite, please update your instructions accordingly.
