Nice, i’ve been doing similar stuff with a script of mine:
http://p.ramaze.net/1818

That i would use like:
curl -s http://fuelfriends.blogspot.com/2007/12/christmas-mixery.html
| uris | egrep ‘.mp3$’ | xargs wget

But thanks, I’ll check this one out :slight_smile:

Thanks for this gem, Ara.

Attached is a patch which changes mp3scrape to use Hpricot. It also
prepends
the supplied URL to relative URLs (that do not match with /^http:/).
This
allows mp3scrape to be used on pages such as

http://staff.telkomsa.net/packages/SRPMS/openldap/

to download RPMs instead. Please let me know what you think.

Might be nice as a firefox plugin, too.
