    I'm trying to download a bunch of audios but they are so big (for such a crappy audio quality) and download goes so slow.

    http://www.cadenaser.com/actualidad/audios/mejor-alerta-2004-gran-noche-misterio-parte...7csrcsr_3/Aes/

    I'm trying VSO Downloader but the hotlink is already in source code.

    The download through VSO or Orbit is slow but it seems that in web player it fully download the entire audio in a few seconds, seeking is almost instantly.

    Then

    I dont understand what i was doing, i think i got the same hotlink and the download was 2GB and it was so slow. And VSO got the same slow file. But, yes, now only 15MB and really fast.

    Thanks for the advice bat999.

    Hi
    Firefox, right-click "View Page Source" shows 2 links...

    SLOW link
    src: 'http://sermedia-f.akamaihd.net/cadenaser/2004/06/20040627csrcsr_3_A_LAU.mp4'

    FAST link
    srcHTML5 : 'http://vmedia.cadenaser.com/cadenaser/2004/06/20040627csrcsr_3_A_LAU.mp4'

  5. Do you know if the above trick:
    firefox>right click>view page source> search for srcHTML5
    works for any other websites? What is the significance of "srcHTML5" and how did you figure that out?

    Hi
    Probably the two links are provided for use by different types of browser.
    Some browsers can use HTML5, and some can't.
