  1. I wanted to download https://www.videohelp.com/download/NeroAACCodec-1.5.4.zip from the download section to a linux machine of mine (which has no desktop environment, so shell only).
    Problem is a simple:
    Code:
    wget https://www.videohelp.com/download/NeroAACCodec-1.5.4.zip
    won't do since it's redirected and a referer is added, so something like
    Code:
    wget https://www.videohelp.com/download/NeroAACCodec-1.5.4.zip?r=12345678
    has to be used.

    -> Is it correct that this is intended and I should download the binaries on a machine with a normal browser and then copy it to my other linux machine?

  2. Code:
    wget --referer https://www.videohelp.com/download/NeroAACCodec-1.5.4.zip https://www.videohelp.com/download/NeroAACCodec-1.5.4.zip
    I assume it is intended to disallow hotlinking from external sites (or e.g. some GUI author using videohelp as a download/update server ). I don't think they mind you downloading the occasional file to your Linux machine.

  3. I didn't think is was to hinder me on Linux, just wanted to know whether this was intended or a bug.

    Ps.: Thanks for the '--referer'
