Lecture videos on iTunes U can be quite large (~300 MB). Can I get iTunes U to resume a download after any interruption?
Yes you can - click on "Copy iTunes U URL", then use something like wget to get that url Open the resultant file, and you will find a whole lot of URLs in it, with the relevant episodes. (in my case ending in .mp4) Then use "wget -c" to get the episodes by each url, and it support resume perfectly.... (unless the server doesn't)
Using this method, I have been successfully resuming Stanford iPhone Dev Lectures, which iTunes kept on doing from the beginning...
iTunes.... when it works, it's great... when it doesn't... hmmmmmm
Itunes U is just a catalogue/listing service, it downloads from many different sources.
Typically you can pause/resume in Itunes but it also will depend if the server you are downloading from supports it.
I am gonna show you something really easy than wget. You don't even need it, or anything else at all.
Here is how we do it:
For example, I'll just right-click on
I can pause it and resume it. Simple. I can also paste the link in Firefox itself and download it there without any download manager.
Don't use any wget or any other thing.
