.flv# - annoying!

Post by Aerik » Sat Mar 21, 2009 6:18 am

Often flashgot 1.1.8 media puts a # at the end of a file. Example: anything you download from collegehumor.com ends in .flv#. I have having to rename stuff.

Which download manager are you using? It doesn't happen for me on Orbit Downloader.
At any rate, could you check if it goes away by setting the flashgot.media.forceNameHack about:config property to false?

I'm still using Flashget, you know, the version before it went rampant adware and chinese-only. I like it b/c i's a clean, simple bittorrent client as well as a general download manager, that doesn't require I play with proxy and connections and crap, and I can completely sandbox it with sandboxie and/or my firewall.
