How can I feed the audio and video files?
There are many ways to provide the extension with the input media files. You can click on the dashed section once to open the default file manager and select multiple media files. Or you can simply drop the local media files into the dashed area. This extension also extracts URLs from text input. So if you drop a piece of text content into the dashed area, the extension extracts all URLs from this content and then checks the server's response for each URL. If there is a media mime type associated with this URL, then the content will be fetched and conversion will take place, otherwise, an error is displayed next to the URL. Note that by default the extension does not have permission to the external servers so it will request the permission for each server once it is needed.
Why do I get server access permission, each time I ask for a remote resource conversion? Is there any way to stop these permissions?
For user security, this extension does not have any external access to any remote server what so ever, so when a remote resource is given, it needs to get the user's permission to be able to validate the external resource and to download the resource from the server. These permissions are requested once for each domain. If you don't want to get bothered each time, you can press the global permission button in the UI once which gives the extension access to download any external resource from now on. To disallow this loose permission, you can remove and re-install the extension one more time.
Why do I get "unable to fetch" error when I drop a link into the UI in Firefox browser?
In Firefox, the permission system is not working properly at the moment, so when the extension needs to get the permission from user to access the external server to fetch the media file, this permission is not shown to the user and hence the extension is not able to get the resource! You can either download the resource locally and then drop it into the UI or give the extension the global permission as explained in the related FAQ.
Can I cancel a conversion request?
Yes, simply press the close button in the right side of each job to destroy the job. If the job is in the downloading stage, then the connection gets aborted and if it is in the middle of the MP3 conversion process, the associated worker gets killed.
