Downloading files from a collection

The command-line tools support downloading a collection's images, videos, and data files to a directory on your computer. You can download files from the command line, or from a web browser.

Downloading all files

You can download everything in a collection, placing files in a selected directory.

Linux & OS X Windows
./seedme.py -download 1234 "all" "mydirectory"
seedme.cmd -download 1234 "all" "mydirectory"

Above, '1234' is the ID of the collection you wish to download, 'all' option will download all files in the collection to local 'mydirectory'.

During the download, if a file in the directory already exists, the script will append and increment a version number. To overwrite instead, you can add the '-o' option.

Downloading video files

You can download all videos in a collection, placing files in a selected directory.

Linux & OS X Windows
./seedme.py -download 1234 "video" "mydirectory"
seedme.cmd -download 1234 "video" "mydirectory"

Above command will download all video files to local 'mydirectory' from collection ID '1234'. For each video there are six files at different resolutions and bitrates to enable playback on different devices. The files ending with with _native.mp4 (when created from image sequence) or _original.mp4 (when created from uploaded video) are highest resolution.

Downloading selected files
