Download All Individual Conference Talks

Postby christopher_black » Sun Oct 08, 2017 6:47 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking for a way to download all conference talks individually. It'd be great during my study to have a random conference talk I can play and study. I know I can download individual talks here (https://www.lds.org/general-conference/ ... s?lang=eng) after a bunch of clicking but it'd be great to batch download them.

Thanks in advance!

Chris

I have used a download manager that is a Firefox extension to download multiple video or audio files from a site. The one I have used is called "Down them All." It used to work on the LDSYouth music page, but at one point a web page change broke it and I have not tried since. I have not tried it with the general conference talks, but can do so this evening. If it works, I will re-post with the method.

If you look at previous conferences, for example the April 2017 conference, you will see a "Talks and Music" download link under each session. I'm guessing those links will be added sometime in the next few days for the October 2017 conference.

"Down Them All" works to some extent. The way the pages are set up, it will not see individual talks. It will automatically download all the full conference sessions all at one time (visible from the grey bars at the top of each session. It will also automatically download all the zip files of the individual talks if/when they are available (as sbradshaw mentioned above) since they are also directly linked from the page. They will have to be unzipped manually.

It is only slightly faster than downloading the zip files individually. I can send some screenshots if anyone is interested in trying it. There are some download managers available for Chrome that appear to work the same way but I have not used any of them.

The "Talks and Music" button was exactly what I was looking for, I just didn't see it on the most recent session. And I don't mind downloading the zip files individually. Thanks both!
