How can I download using a premium account?

  1. Go to -> Click on API Key -> Get my API Key -> Copy the key to your clipboard
    If you can't see "Get my API key", click on Disable API usage instead and then on Get my API key.
    If the 1fichier website does not give you the option to display/generate an API key, your 1fichier account is not a premium account.
  2. Open JDownloader -> Settings -> Account Manager -> Add -> -> Enter your API key here

    If you are using myjdownloader, enter your API key in both the username and password fields!
