Save.TV Download Automation

Save.TV Download Automation is a bunch of perl-code, that automatically downloads series and movies, that were recorded via the online-service Save.TV automatically.

It gives you some options to rename the output files, to fit your needs and only download specific series and movies.

Also the ad-removal feature of Save.TV is used, so the content is downloaded in the highest available quality, without ads.

We try to improve the script, if we find the time to do so.

Issues can be reported via the Report an Issue Form and seen in the Issues-List.

Ask your questions on the Questions-Page. (very simple, we look for better solutions)

It's free to use, so don't blame us, if something goes wrong :p
