RSS Feed Downloader


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I'm looking for a program that will take RSS feed subscriptions & then download the binary files and generate a RSS feed that Google Reader will pull in. This will new RSS feed will alert me that new files have been successfully downloaded and waiting.

You are correct. I know that you can have torrents download via RSS. Want the same thing but not via torrents.

wget+scripting will do what you want - If you are using windows, search the forums for my wget bat script for downloading from rss feeds. It's how I download from rss feeds. And once the files are in the same folder, you can just rerun the script and wget will skip files that already exist.

Heres the scripts: http://www.twistedpairrecords.com/digip/wget_podcast.rar

You would still need to download wget and either put it in the same folder as your scripts or put it in your working path via environmental variables using the path method or putting it in your system32 folder.

This version is setup to just run, ignore the readme about having to edit the wget bat script, just feed it any feed url.
