Linkgrabber: How to add links

There are multiple ways to add links to JD all of which depend on how you use/control JD.
Keep in mind that Click-And-Load is possible via all methods which is why it is not listed here separately.

Add links in JDownloader with GUI

There are multiple methods to add links to a JDownloader via GUI:

1. Add Links via clipboard observation
Enable clipboard observation so JD will auto-catch every supported URL that you copy to your clipboard.
Extra hint: If you only want to add a single link and already have it in your clipboard, you may as well simply enable-and disable clipboard observation with 2 clicks to let JD only grab tha one item.

2. Add links via CTRL + V
Go into the linkgrabber or downloadlist and simply paste any URL via CTRL + V.

3. Manually add links via 'Add links' dialog

Compared to the other method this one lets you set specified properties like packagename and downloa path right away.
This will also deep-crawl for downloadable URLs inside unsupported URLs (e.g. url to an sunsupported website containing an image gallery).

Adding links via / Smartphone App

Open the myjdownloader app, switch to the Linkgrabber tab and click on the plus symbol in the top right corner.

Adding links via myjdownloader browser addon

Open any website which contains URLs you want to download -> Rightclick on these -> Download with JDownloader
You may as well do this anywhere on the current page to add the URL of the current tab (address bar) to JD.

LinkGrabber quick settings

You can find the LinkGrabber quick settings in the bottom right corner of the Linkgrabber tab (gear icon).

Autostart download of added links / auto move added links to downloadlist

  1. Navigate to the linkgrabber quick settings.
  2. Enable "Autostart Download".
  3. For all items added after changing this seconds, JDownloader will wait some seconds and then auto-move them to your downloadlist.
    You can customize this delay too in the advanced settings: LinkgrabberSettings.autoconfirmdelay (only do this if you know what you're doing!).

Auto add new links to the top of your downloadlist

Quick settings -> Add at top

Auto move new items to downloadlist (without auto-start)
