Convert Rapidshare links to direct download links

I used to download a huge number of files from my college days, when I had not premium account on rapidshare. Then I purchased a premium account which is now being mostly used by my brother to download new movies with their latest release.

So If you have a rapidshare account whether a premium or any other account, Rapid Assist lets you convert rapidshare indirect links to direct downloadable links which can be then feed to your internet download manager.


Rapid Assist is quite useful when you have a premium account or collectors account or any other valid rapidshare account.

Rapid Assist does require installation, you just need to execute the standalone executable (RapidAssist.exe) to run it.

After configuring, copy the indirect download links from rapidshare to the RapidShare Links section and get the direct download links for your download accelerator from Direct Download Links


You will need .Net Framework 2.0 installed

    Crap. Why would someone with a premium account need to convert the download links to direct links when they can download without limit?
