wrong names when downloading mp3s from vk

Hi,

everything used to be fine as long as I right clicked and chose "save file as" and it would get the name of the mp3 correctly but since yesterday no matter what i do it downloads mp3s with some random numbers as the name of the file.

doing this didnt work as well: 

"Visit Tampermonkey settings, including mode settings "Advanced"

click Downloads BETA, on Download Mode: browser api"


  • Browser: Chrome 68.0.3440 Windows
  • Extension: userjs-chrome 7.81.2

Hello, have you configured the Tampermonkey extension?

Or set up Tampermonkey does not help?

Hello, have you configured the Tampermonkey extension?

i dont know what happened since yesterday cause i didnt change any of Tampermonkey's settings and today i just tried this thing that you recommended to do which was changing the Download Mode to browser api and it didnt work so i changed it back to default settings 

This method works if you do it right.

Go to Tampermonkey settings, enable Advance settings mode -> Downloads BETA -> Download Mode: browser api.
Restart TM – everything should be working.

If this does not work, install the extension with the second method.

Remove Tampermonkey and install the Chameleon extension:

Google Chrome. First 1 then 2.
1. Install the extension Chameleon: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chameleon/dmpojjilddefgnhiicjcmhbkjgbbclob?hl=en-US
2. Install the extension Savefrom.Net: https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/savefromnet-helper/?display=en

ok so I tried both methods and neither of them worked(guess the problem has something to do Chrome) but i installed Opera Browser and added the Savefrom.Net extension to it and it works like a charm. 

so I will be using Opera when i want to download from VK.

thanks a lot for your help and this great extension.
