How to download mega share link to local machine

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I'm looking for methods to download a mega share link by rclone. (the url is like

Have searched, but didn't find available solutions.

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

I tried below command

rclone copyurl [url] [destination]

but got following output:

ERROR : Attempt 3/3 failed with 1 errors and: Access is denied.
Failed to copyurl: Access is denied.

I'm sure the url is correct, i can open it in browser.

I don't think this is possible with rclone at the moment. I think if you look at that page then it uses lots of javascript which rclone can't process. It would be nice is the mega backend could open these shared links but it can't yet :frowning:

You can import the file to your account then download it.

The getmega tool is opensource, and I think rclone can implement some of the features it's api is simple. Also it won't require api key.

Do you have a link for getmega @iCodeShit ? I can't find it on GitHub.

Getmega uses premium accounts.

Yes. I forgot to mention they changed the name for the tool. Here's the git.

The old debfiles had a tool called get mega. I expect it works the same as the one in the git.

Links are at rentry,co/meganz

Nope. I still use it with and without normal accounts for archiving mega links. No speed caps, no throttling, No download and ip limits.

when i go to any link on mega it only says download or import in mega. it doesn't say download through your browser. please help
