Batch File in Win 7

Specs: Windows 7 64-bit, 3.54 Ghz/10GB

Hello, I would like to develope a .bat file to do the following: (1) Allow the input, by me,of the URLs of selected Educational YouTube videos (which are downloadable as .flv files.) (2) Determine the hours 12:00am to 5:00am and download the above mentioned videos into an "Ă–NLINE COURSES"" folder to be viewed later on a Video Media Converter program. Can this be done? I'm on a satellite ISP and 12 to 5 am has free bandwidth. Thanks.

Are the videos automatically downloaded when the url is passed to the browser? or is there a special program that is doing the downloading...like you tube downloader. If possible can you pass me a url so that I can test it? If you are using a browser to do the navigating and downloading, which browser are you using.

seems like it would be simple with a little more information.

If you are just using the browser it would be something in the format of

for /f %%G IN (c:\listurl.txt) DO start /d "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer" IEXPLORE.EXE %%G

and in the file c:\listurl.txt you would enter the urls you are using in the following format

"http://www.google.com" without the quotes

then set a programming task to run the batch durring the times you want it work.

FTP would of course be ideal, but probably too much to hope for.

yeah, the language was a little different from what I was familiar with, that was why I was questioning. There are so many options.

Hi Mike, Thanks for coming back. I'm using Firefox and it has a downloader add on and I also have the VLC media player on the system. I'm not sure what is doing what. Let me explain what I'm doing now manually for each video download. In Firefox I go to the UMKC Youtube video website. I click the video I want and then click the download button on that page selecting "Low flv". This opens save media file->Downloads->Online Courses with the video name highlighted in the File name line. I then click Save. I then click the VLC media player icon, click Media, then Open File, click Open and the video plays. To see if it was saved correctly, I go to Accessories, Windows Explorer, Downloads and click the Online Courses file folder.
I would like to download multiple files during the free bandwidth time. What do you think? Thanks again for any help.
