Link Grabber

As you can see there are two available options for the link grabber which can be set through jDownloader's settings

A. Check link info and online status

If checked jDownloaders link grabber will check the files online status (availability) , filesize and ping time (request time for the file).

B. Link Filter

The link grabber can also grab http links containing file types with extensions , such as > .exe .png .jpg .html” etc. and in some cases these file types might become unnecessary for the jDownloader user , therefore rulesets must be entered manually.

#Ignorefiletype 'olo':               

#Ignore hoster '':


So now lets suppose that you wanted to filter an .exe file and a file hosting service such as

This is how your final ruleset would look like
