Doing direct links from mediafire. Bypass the ad-screen.
I keep hearing people saying they got viruses or malware from mediafire. Personally it hasn’t happened to me but ad-block always blocked ads and recently something updated and is also blocking the tab that opened when you clicked download.
Anyway this isn’t the point of this tutorial. I host my downloads on mediafire and only recently have I begun to also use dropbox. I wasn’t sure if to stop using mediafire or not but then I realized I could just give you guys the direct link and you wouldn’t see the webpage with the ads or anything. Here’s how:
Go to the page of your download and right-click on the download button. There click the option that says ‘Copy Link Location’ or whatever the equivalent is on your browser. I’m using firefox in this example.
Now you will have a link that goes directly to your package/zip/etc. Here’s an example of what happens when you put that link in the address bar:
It’s just going to start the download. Voilá!
Credits: I’d like to thank berrysweetboutique because thanks to her downloads I figured out this could be done.
Note. I do something similar with my dropbox downloads (when you click on them it’s also an automatic thing). If anyone is interested I could make a tutorial of that.
