Were you using as-owner or as-guest? As-owner should always work.
First off, thanks for this app, it's been quite helpful
Second, is there no way to maintain the "Date Taken" metadata when downloading? I'm cleaning up a lot of old iPhoto galleries, some of which are 10 years old. Smugmug obviously keeps track of the Date Taken, but when I download those pictures again (in smaller sizes like L and XL), they no longer have any of the metadata.
Am I just out of luck?
Yes, I believe SmugMug discards the majority of metadata for non-original sizes.
Works great, but I have one very basic question -- is it possible to make the Original downloads maintain their original file names? Right now, they come in with with extra chars in the filename.
Also, is it possible to make the videos download the originals as well? I see the 1280 option, but not originals.
So cool... Thanks ;-)
Original DLs have the original filename if DLed as owner. If DLed as guest, they get the SmugMug name. (At least I think this is so. It's been a while since I've DLed anything with my own app, so tell me if I'm wrong... )
SmugMug doesn't store your original videos, so the options listed are all you get.
I can not get Albumfetcher to work at all. It just says "login failed" Any ideas?
I was signed-in, but still got the long strange names in the original file names.

I ran across this when trying to run it on XP Embedded machines. Something tells me it has to do with not being able to access the OS in some way, but that's a pretty wild guess.
I have a question on how the skipping feature works. Does it check the existing files as it builds the queue to download or does it check on the fly after the file is in queue?
I'm running it on a Win2k.
I think I may have found the answer to this. It seems like it checks the files on the fly after it builds the queue. Theoretically, you should be able to run mutliple AF downloads of the same images and the different copies won't waste time downloading the same images.
So now another question--anyone have experience running multiple instances of AF on the same computer?
I ran across this on two of my machines that run XP Embedded. Two other regular XP machines ran it fine.
Hey everyone unfortunately AlbumFetcher is no longer being supported and I've removed the link fro the Wiki page. Try out RapidFetcher instead, it works with Macs, Win or Linux! (Adobe Air app).http://wiki.smugmug.net/display/SmugMug/Hacks+and+Apps
