Zippyshare does not work properly in jDownloader Back to Knowledgebase
Zippyshare blocks more and more countries (including the UK, Germany, Denmark and Spain). As a result, you can no longer access the Zippyshare website or download files in these coutnries. With Premiumize.me the download is still possible. If you use jDownloader the download will work as well, but you will not be able to check the online/offline status or file/package name. The reason for this is that jDownloader requests this data from the filehost in LinkGrabber, which is not possible with Zippyshare if Zippyshare is blocked in your country.
In the following tutorial you can see how you can avoid this problem by using a proxy server:
First, open the proxy settings in jDownloader (Settings > Connection Manager).
Click on Add to add a new proxy.
This windows should now be visible. Please enter the following:
- Type: HTTP
- Host: geoblocking.premiumize.me
- Port: 82
- Username: your customer-id
- Password: your api-key
Next, we strongly recommend that you whitelist the proxy for "zippyshare.com" only, so that the proxy is only used to retrieve information from Zippyshare.com. Otherwise all your downloads will be routed through the proxy. This doesn't give you any advantages, but disadvantages, because you will probably get worse download speeds or non-Premiumize.me downloads will fail.
- Click the edit button
- Select Whitelist instead of Blacklist
- Remove everything from the text field and enter zippyshare.com
- Save and start your download
