 Post subject: Throttling request
PostPosted: Wed Feb 15, 2012 5:15 pm 
Hi, first avail,
thank you for your program, its great!

Lately, I've seen how Grooveshark has been making changes to make it harder to download music from their site.
One of these is the blacklist or temp ban thing.

As many uses, I like to select the top songs and just hit download and see what is new among the stuff I already got.

One request I would like to see in this aplication is as in an Android App called Tinyshark Downloader, they have a throtling option, where you can select to download the song at a lower speed, then wait a random amount of time (min and max wait time) between downloads, this in order to prevente Grooveshark temp ban.

Hopefully this can be made, so we can get back to unattended downloading of songs :D.

Thanks,


Top

This is a nice idea, I will add the alternative apis to download. Also random wait times and download throttling is an idea. But in the past we always got blocked, because the API got changed, not by heuristics.
