How to download from vk.com?

Post by Aze » 11 Feb 2017, 01:04

Hi Maxim

I need to download some pictures from a specific profile at vk.com, but the url of the album is not "https://vk.com/album-XXXXXXX_XXXXX" but instead "https://vk.com/albumXXXXXXX_XXXXX".

How do I download the pictures then? Hope you can help me out! Thanks for the support.

Sorry for posting here as well but I don't want to open a new thread for my very basic problem: I can't even download from correct links. Here's a picture of the error I have. I get the same message when I'm trying to download the projects listed on the download page as well.
(The album on the screenshot is just a random example I found by googling, those I want to download contain more pictures, so I don't want to download them manually.)

Hope to get some help.

Hi Aze and gemme.

Unfortunately vk.com album template does not work on every album. It actually does work on some albums (as you can see the template page - there are succesfully completed projects) but not on all :( The work on this template is still in progress and once I find a way to consistently download from vk.com I'll update this template:

and will report to this thread.

Thank you for the reply Maxim

I already installed the template for VK.com, but as stated the albums does not have "-" between album and the specific name.

Have you had any luck downloading from VK, from albums named https://vk.com/albumXXXXXXX_XXXXX?

By the way, gemme, try setting this User Agent in EPF settings:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0

and use current version of template. It may work for some of your albums.

I guess I'll add this information to the template page...
