Easy soundboard downloads from archive!

Image from store Grateful Grabber
Description from store This extension will make downloading your favorite Grateful Dead soundboards from archive.org easier than ever! In just one click you can download an entire show. It's that simple. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Feel free to reach out to me and request and features, bugs, or new artwork images and I will be happy to chat! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2.4.3 - Fixed an issue where broken track titles from archive would make the extension not appear on the page 2.4.2 - Never realized that individual song downloads were broken. This was something that was changed in a recent version of chrome back in October, and I had no idea it affected grateful grabber. This should be fixed now, but the single downloads unfortunately won't be as fast, but they will work now! Sorry for any inconvenience over the past few months, and I hope everyone will be happy again! 2.4.0 - Fixed an issue where certain shows wouldn't download multiple versions of the same songs - Added numbers to the song titles so they appear in order and you know what track number they are 2.3.0 - Thanks for the PR Jeremy! - Cleaned up a ton of code - Fetch files from the server rather than scraping HTML - Looked into FLAC material - Any users who have been requesting FLAC files, we may be out of luck as they don't even seem to exist on archive's server - They're either missing or completely blocked off from the public. 2.2.4 - Publication/show date selector changed on archive's end, resulting in broken filenames. Should be fixed (100% on mac, any windows user's email me if it's still broken there) 2.2.3 - Turns out regex broke everything, should be back to normal 2.2.2 - Some songs weren't getting downloaded because of special characters. Regex should fix this. 2.2.1 -Text files with source information and taper notes added! 2.2.0 -UI Updates. Much cleaner and simpler look! -Included a fun little random stealie every time you visit a show! (Email me with any repository of cool pictures and I can incorporate more!) 2.1.1 -Fixed issue on windows with songs that had a '>' in the track title, all songs should download now! 2.1.0 Version release -Collapsible panel to access GG

  • (2022-01-21) Mike - Julie M: Maybe I'm doing something wrong?? Everytime I try and download the full folder of the album the progress bar only fills half way and then it downloads the zip but when i check the folder only half of the tracks downloaded
  • (2022-01-06) Nathan Koffler: I'm just finding this in Jan of 2022, as a slightly newer deadhead. This is a great tool. It makes downloading shows so easy.

  • (2019-05-08) Thomas Sweet: Priceless and has always worked, since the Chromium daze. However, don't be a cheapskate. Donate Archive.org some dough and if you really like a mix buy the mixer a cup of coffee.
  • (2019-03-06) David Phillips: Works great for downloading whole shows. The individual song option does not appear to be working.
  • (2019-02-10) Luser: Use it religiously, best one out there

  • (2018-12-30) backlineman: Never worked. Icon is grey, appears as an extension icon, bu clicking on it does not open an app. I removed the app , than reinstalled it and has same issue. won't open.

  • (2018-05-25) manikenpis: Was working for a while but, even tho the extension is enabled, it doesn't show on any archive pages and therefore I can't grab anything.
  • (2018-04-30) Shawn Bibby: Hey! Its still working wonderfully! I was wondering, if you could add a note pad or add in the notepad all the comments tat are currrently on the show. I like reading them. Theyre always so vivid. Anyways thanks so much gent!
  • (2018-02-08) Ryan Atkinson: Excellent - works super well, fast and reliable. Yeah, being able to download FLACs from archive.org would be nice, but I'll definitely take what I can get. THANK YOU!!
  • (2018-01-06) Aiea Slippers: It only worked once. after I used it once, I cant get it back on the archive page. Also, no directions (no directions needed for the initial download, but after, I cant get it to appear on any archive page.)
  • (2017-12-08) H Annen: This is an excellent program that works very well.
  • (2017-10-18) Whitney Shroyer: There are very few ways to listen to the Grateful Dead on the internet. Grateful Grabber fills that nightmarish void. TY,GG!

  • (2017-02-15) Jd Martin: Dude, this is the best thing since sliced bread. Major kudos to you sir - I have all these soundboards sitting around on cassette from almost 30 years ago, trying to figure out how to put them on something to listen to. Fare thee well, friend!
  • (2017-01-11) Collin Moore: Awesome program! I see that allowing users to download in FLAC looks to be in the works, which would be awesome! In addition, the ability to specify that you want 320 kbps MP3 would be very cool as well!
  • (2016-12-07) Tim Harber: This app is amazing. Major props for writing it. It is a huge time saver to download shows.

    Hey - first of all thank you for this amazing program. However as of late the download full show feature has been very slow and does not work a lot of the time. Hope this can be fixed. Once again thank you NFA
  • (2021-06-14, v:2.4.3) Robert Hamon: partial downloads

  • (2021-06-10, v:2.4.3) Bruce O'Neil: Downloading Complete Shows
    I can't download complete shows. I can download individual songs. Thanks, Bruce
  • (2021-03-04, v:2.4.3) Dann Clark: Not working correctly...
    For most shows, it shows the download dialogue before the zip has finished compiling and stops compiling the zip and the downloaded show is mostly 0 byte files.
  • (2021-01-14, v:2.4.3) sleepy monkey242gt: not all of the shows will download...
    Ive been using grabber for years and now it wont extract but maybe 3-4 songs out of a show..is there an issue on my or your end?
  • (2020-11-16, v:2.4.3) Chris Sobik: grabber malfunctioning

  • (2020-05-22, v:2.4.3) shane sheaff: some will while some won't.
    Hello Chris...hope all is well given the current environment,and the chaos that is the pandemic..seems kinda selfish of me to complain...complain is not entirely accurate,but I have used your extension for 2-2.5 years and have been extremely thankful..now my 16 yr old daughter is using it and growing into herself with help from GD...all of a sudden my downloads,take for ever,if they download at all..its bizarre,because it was sudden,and whats more,I have 16G memory and 2 external HD's totaling over a TByte of space..any suggestions? i have tried the obvious ones,I think..clearing history/cache's etc...thanks and stay well ,sir.
  • (2020-04-28, v:2.4.3) David Peszek: Thank you!

  • (2020-03-08, v:2.4.3) Taylor Meads: Can't download Goose shows
    I keep trying to download this show: https://archive.org/details/goose2020-03-05.TA When I try to download the entire show, the loading bar fills up as expected but once it hits 100% it hangs and I never get the completed ZIP. Downloading individual songs doesn't seem to work either.
  • (2020-01-28, v:2.4.3) Gary Beckwith: mp3 files
    hello, i love this extension, i just have a question. i noticed that the files I download are roughly 192 mbps mp3 files. For the soundboards in particular, i am certain that archive must have flac files of higher quality. in fact the show i'm looking at right now, it says "flac" in the URL. is there any way to get to those flac files?
  • (2019-06-23, v:2.4.3) Owen Scott: downloads
    where does the music download to?
  • (2018-12-15, v:2.4.1) 'Add To Chrome' Button Grayed Out
    I am trying to download extension, but similar to others, the button for option to Add To Chrome is grayed out or appears disabled. Is there another step I am missing?
  • (2018-11-08, v:2.4.1) Workaround
    Folks, here's the workaround until this is fixed. Right click on download button or individual song choice. Select "view page source" Scroll down until you reach list of links of associated media (mp3 and ogg) Click the link you need and music player with download button will be there for you.

  • (2018-11-07, v:2.4.1) Rob Bleetstein: Downloading individual songs not working
    I'm sure you're familiar with this issue as others here have mentioned, but since last update I can no longer download individual tracks. Please tell me you're working on fixing this asap! Thanks!
  • (2018-11-06, v:2.4.1) Grateful Grabber not working
    Hi, FANTASTIC extension, have used it on and off for quite a while. However, since the last update (2.4.1) it's not working. Click on individual song titles and nothing happens! Downloading a whole show never worked for me either, usually crashes my browser, so doing one track at a time was next best option. Hopefully it's not me doing something silly, do I have the settings correct? I see there are things you can change such as "allow access to file URLs" not really sure what they do or it it makes any difference? Thanks Pete
  • (2018-10-22, v:2.4.1) Helen Drinkwater: Individual track downloads
    I am suddenly unable to download individual tracks. The 'Individual Song' dropdown works fine but none of the displayed songs are selectable. Can you help? Thx
  • (2018-10-15, v:2.4.0) Damon F: doesn't work

  • (2018-09-04, v:2.4.0) Christopher Jones: no work?
