Cookie login instructions
This guide is only relevant for a hand full of services! You will get a message in JDownloader leading you to this article.
The login process of all other services should be self-explaining - most services simply require you to enter your E-Mail/username & password in JDownloader!
1. If your browser supports browser profiles, use a separate browser profile to initiate the session.
Alternatively you can also use a private/incognito window - be sure to allow the addons described below to be used in private browsing otherwise your private window will open without installed browser addons.
It is not recommended to use your current/normal browser session because JD could interfere with it and e.g. change your default language.
2. Use your browser to login into the website yout want to use with JD like you normally do.
If that website has a checkbox like "Keep session" or "Trust this computer", be sure to enable it.
3. Exporting your cookies
Now you need to export the cookies of that particular website.
This requires a different process depending on the browser you're using:
Opera & Chrome
a. Install the open source addon EditThisCookie
b. Visit the website you want JD to login into and then export your cookies as shown in the screenshot below.
Doing this will copy your cookies into your clipboard so you are ready to continue with the next step.
a. Install the open source addon Flag Cookies
b. Visit the website you want JD to login into.
c. Export your cookies as described in the following screenshot:
d. You will be prompted to download a .json file containing your cookies:
e. Open this file with a text editor of your choice and copy the complete content of it.
You can now delete the .json file in your downloads folder.
4. Importing your cookies in JDownloader
Open JD - go into the Account Manager, click on Add account and look for the website you want to login into.
Enter your username/E-Mail into the username field and paste your exported cookies into the password field.
