Using WWW/WWWForum to download from a file hoster

I was trying to figure out a way to download a file from a remote host as I think it might be an easy way to store and download content for stuff like DLC and addons.

I’m familiar with the WWW class, but not so much the WWWForum class. Basically I need to know if and how I can tell a page to click a button.

So does anyone know of a way to ‘click’ buttons on pages and how I might login so I can use the faster download speed?


You need to open HTML file and figure out how these buttons work on HTML page. In most cases it is simply javascript and HTML form which does POST request. You can simulate same thing by using WWWForm - simply add sample paramters that HTML form has and then submit to same URL that HTML page does.

I would suggest you use Dropbox instead. DropBox has a public folder. Files in this folder can directly accessed via URL from anywhere without the need of loading a website.

Dropbox has a 2GB limit for free users, but in most cases that should be enough.
