A Guide to DDL (Direct Download) Piracy


Nyaaalicious

Recommended Posts

Hi, so I'm from Snahp which is a private piracy forum (unfortunately it's private and there are no more invites) that came about after r/Megalinks died, I just wanted to share the guide that I wrote on Snahp to help the community here. This is a guide to pirate every resource, but it also includes porn as well.

A quick preface before I get into the stuff, I'm not really sure if this post counts as advertising, I have no connection to any of the websites I suggest, nor any incentive to advertise for any of these websites, this is just based upon my own experience and all I wish for is to help someone else find whatever they need.

----------------------------Please Skip if you want to go straight to the suggestions--------------------------

So what is Direct Downloads anyway?
In summary, there's a dedicated server which allows you to download files on your computer. This is compared to P2P (peer to peer) downloads which is when your peers upload and send parts of files to each other from their own computers which are generally less optimised (slower) for sending files.

Okay, but why do I care?
It's fast. It's reliable. There's a lower chance of infecting your computer with a virus. I'm not going to lie, I've never tried torrenting, so I'm not sure I'm correct. From the small amount of research I have done, it's a pain. Download speeds vary quite a lot depending upon how many people seed a file, files are more likely to contain viruses because they're not attached to anything you could report though some places like nyaa.si are (from what I've heard) more reputable.

Also, there's the fact that media companies can and do report your IP address to your ISP who can then throttle your internet speeds and also threaten legal action. However, supposedly they let you off with a warning the first time and you can use a VPN and some other software/tactics to hide your IP address.

Perhaps most importantly out of all: it's slow. Using Google Drive downloads you can almost consistently (in my area) get 7-10Mbps and with Mega.nz 7-9Mbps. Speed is key.

In my opinion and experience, it's just not worth the pain. Hence, Direct Downloads.

But torrents have better selection?
Yes. I have to say Torrents have a greater selection of pretty much anything you can think of (digitally of course), that's because no one's going around cutting torrents, also increases the chance of malware. One thing before I finish, Piracy and hence Direct Downloads work best when you target something popular, movies/tv shows almost guaranteed, because someone else will have requested it before you.

Sooooooooo?
The rest of this will just be a list of suggestions and explanations to the websites I find work best and are the most reliable for every medium you can think of.

Useful Download Tool Suggestions

Bypassing the 5GB Mega Limit [program install]
Okay one thing that I want to do before anything else is to say if you are using Mega.nz and do not want to pay for premium please use the cracked Freedome VPN download on this website uploaded by someone on Snahp. This is about the most useful tool I have found, every time you're about to reach the limit change the location and turn the VPN on, no charge (because it's here) and it works.

Update: I have found this method doesn't always work consistently and Mega seems to sometimes keep track of bandwith downloaded on the same continent and country so best idea is to switch continents first, then try switching countries and to be patient with it and to keep trying.

This was uploaded by someone on Snahp, but I have uploaded my own copy here:  (If you do bypass the limit close megasync, change country, reopen megasync)

Please take the time to consider that these may contain malware, you shouldn’t trust anyone on the internet least of all me, always antivirus, use basic logic, report it if it’s a virus in the comments. Don’t be fooled by any words anyone has to say, no one in the entire world can guarantee anything has no malware, if they do, they’re a fool. I have however, used this for several months with no adverse effects.

Update: Downloading From ZippyShare [program install]
Recently discovered this courtesy of someone on Snahp thank you so much for making a post on this! ZippyShare in its original state as a free user is almost unusable giving out download speeds of something like 10-20kbps.

However, if you install JDownloader 2: http://jdownloader.org/jdownloader2 (use this link for a clean installer) , you can copy and paste a list of ZippyShare links into it and achieve something like 8-10Mbps, which is actually faster than Mega.

Note: I still would not preference ZippyShare links as they must be split into many parts due to the 500Mb upload limit, this means the download for a single part going down could mean the entire download is non-functional.

Update: Bypassing Google Drive Limits
This has been known for quite a while but is still functional to my knowledge. A note, you must have enough space in your drive before attempting this method. e.g If the file you're trying to download is 16 GB and you only have 5GB in your Google drive, this will not work. A good suggestion is to have an educational/premium google drive account which has unlimited storage to obtain a team drive with unlimited space so this method will always work.

If you encounter a google drive link which says 'download limit exceeded' you should have the option of 'Add shortcut to Drive', if it's in folder format, ctrl/cmd + click the folder/files you want right click and say 'Add shortcut to Drive'. Now, search up 'Google Drive' in google and open your google drive. Go to 'My Drive' click on the files that you wanted to download and then right click before clicking on 'Make a Copy'. You can now right click on the copy of the files you made and click 'Download', thus bypassing the download limit.

Speeding up your downloads Internet Download Manager (IDM) (Optional) [program install]
This helps you download some files from websites which throttle your download speed faster. It takes over any normal downloads by downloading them with Internet Download Manager and can give you an extra 3-4MBps. How? It makes multiple requests for the same file in different places and downloads them simultaneously, before joining them together. Just type Internet Download Manager into the Snahp search and you'll see a lot of results pop up, because it updates quite frequently. The latest version that I would suggest is uploaded by someone on Snahp, but I have uploaded my own copy here:

Browser Add-ons
As a general rule, always use a good antivirus like Norton Security when pirating, the other two essentials are an ad blocker like uBlock Origin and Universal Bypass which skips past waiting timers on short links.

Useful Direct Download Website Suggestions

Music
Deemix [program install] (requires you to make a deezer account and login on the program for lossless FLAC format)
Note: This is the one I have wanted to talk about the most. If you're on Snahp and you're looking for music/requesting it please install Deemix:https://notabug.org/RemixDev/deemix-tools. It is the easiest way to download lossless music in about one click. It blew my mind how easy it was to do this, but it is absolutely amazing. Also the selection of music is phenomenal, because it is downloading from an official music streaming site. Amazing.
Snahp (active community around requests and downloads)
kingdom-leaks (good selection of songs, Zippyshare and passtheleaks links which give decent 2-4MBps)
Tidal-Media-Downloader [program install]:https://github.com/yaronzz/Tidal-Media-Downloader (requires a premium Tidal Hi-Fi Account for this method, do not use mastered/hi-fi MQA quality option due to DRM, size and requiring a digital to analog converter (DAC), good GUI, huge selection, easy installation process and fast download speeds)

Books/Magazines/Newspapers
gen.lib.rus.ec (one of the largest online collections of literary material, scientific articles, textbooks and magazines has some slightly dodgy website redirects so use a reliable antivirus + uBlock Origin, click on different sections before searching such as fiction for different sections of libgen)
Libgen.is (is one of the many mirrors to gen.lib.rus.ec)
https://b-ok.cc/ (easy direct download, libgen takes a lot of books from here as well)
mobilism.org (requires you to make an account, but it's pretty easy, large collection, especially for niche books, also magazines and newspapers, also has android apks)
mIRC [program install] (Install it from here: https://www.mirc.com/ download over IRC chat, huge selecion of books, need to connect to a server through mIRC Options window > Connect, then go to the appropriate channel via Tools > Channels List > Get List, use channels for ebooks such as #bookz, can use one of the cracked versions of mIRC on Snahp to bypass 30 day free trial)
Snahp

Games
Snahp (best for large games: above 20gbs, but still good for indie games as well)
Fitgirl Repacks (some direct downloads uploaded by others, only for popular/large games: above 20gbs) Note: Famous for being one of the most reliable (game works) and malware free repackers with some of the best compression. Sometimes has Google Drive and ZippyShare links (ZippyShare links should be downloaded with JDownloader 2 as mentioned above)
Ovagames (offers Mega, Google Drive and premium links, mostly for small games i.e <10gbs, some dodgy pop ups, lots of games from Snahp come from here)
nblog (offers MEGA, Google Drive Links for emulator isos, visual novels, games from japan, and for small indie games i.e <10gbs)
gog-games.com (for gog releases, has ZippyShare links should be downloaded with JDownloader 2 as mentioned above both for small indie and larger games)
torrminatorr.com (requires you to make a free account, forum dedicated to uploading GOG games, has a Mac and Linux game subforum, uses many Google Drive Links so use JDownloader 2)
Cs.rin.ru (good for early access, independent and niche steam games, popular forum dedicated to cracking steam games, requires you to make a free account, has clean steam files, also has resources on how to crack steam games, problem is mostly premium hosts and uploads go down very quickly, so there are many dead links, use the search option and look in the comments for reuploads)
iggames (last resort, dodgy redirects, sometimes has malware so be careful use an antivirus, also disliked by most of the community mostly for small indie games i.e <10gbs, has Google Drive, Mega and other premium links)

Console Games and Old Roms/ISOs (Use Internet Download Manager as suggested above for all these sites)
alvro.trademark.cat (for most console games, directly hosted links, including PS4, PS3 Commodore, Xbox 360 and Gamecube games)
Vimm’s lair (For old games and has every game released in the us for 14 systems including the gamecube, wii, playstation 2, psp, since the downloads are self-hosted they are usually very slow, so use internet download manager as mentioned above for 1-2MBps)
CdRomance (For old games including those for the PSP, Gamecube, PS2 and Playstation, self-hosted downloads, so usually slow, so use internet download manager for 2-3MBps)
My Abandonware (For old games from 1978 to 2010 that have been abandoned by their rights holders, includes games for the Amiga, Atari and Windows)

Manga
Snahp (Mega links download manga faster and more reliably than other methods)

Hakuneko [program install] (slow but works, has a graphical interface, for ripping from sites with IP bans such as mangadex, use a VPN)
Free Manga Downloader
Polite Mangadex Downloader (very slow but it works)

Manga Sources (websites)
mangadex.org (highest quality unofficial scans, some are uploaded by scanlation groups, has an temporary IP ban system if you rip too fast from this website so downloads from here are very slow, use hakuneko to download from here)

Thank you for sharing this extensive list. Very well made, I will pin it inside of Guides/resources so more users are able to see it.

One thing I also want to add is that Zippyshare links expires if there hasn't been a download from it for 30 days. You are probably aware of this, but I don't think everyone is.

No worries it makes me happy to help others and see others benefit and tried my best to make it as comprehensive as possible. Also, I have to give full credit to the experience and generosity of so many others, I was only able to compile this list by seeing other lists and refining them down to those that I personally use on a daily basis.

I've got a few more resources that I'll update this with, especially around movies, but I definitely feel there are a lot more resources I missed.

Yep and you're right, the 30 day time limit is definitely why I dislike Zippyshare links, I'll add it to the post for others as well, thanks for telling me.

Furthermore, I'm humbled that you would think that it's pinworthy and thanks for making this incredible forum possible!

This is very cool. Thanks for the info! Cleared up some things I would otherwise have been too antsy to try.

Happy to hear that that's the case, these are the resources I use on a daily basis and are the most effective and efficient from my experience. There are of course alternatives including IRC, usenet, soulseek, torrents, but in general I find those to be much more time consuming. These resources I have personally tested, so I'm glad I could introduce you to some hopefully new resources for you to add to your toolbox!
