I used to use a program for download media from 4chan but I forget about it.

Is there a way to download images and webms from 4chan?

  • Right click --> Save as doesn't work? – TheWanderer Mar 12 '16 at 19:26
  • I know. I'm not as stupid as your brain's think. :) I'm asking about automation. – user513724 Mar 13 '16 at 20:23
  • Automation in what way? – TheWanderer Mar 13 '16 at 20:23
  • To download all webms and images. – user513724 Mar 13 '16 at 20:29
  • All of the existing images and GIFs on the site at once? – TheWanderer Mar 13 '16 at 22:13

Okay, I found a solution.

  1. Download this beautiful script from github.
  2. Extract it to your desktop (or another folder)
  3. Open the terminal in this location
  4. Use this command with your thread link (example):

    python download.py http://boards.4chan.org/g/thread/53587062

  5. It's okay. That will start a download process.
