Sweet, worked like a charm. Are mp4 videos supposed to be downloaded too? that part doesn't seem to work.

mp4 videos worked for me. However, for me; when I run the script it only downloads 1 DAY within the month. Did yours download all of the days in the month?

@AdySan The last time I used this script was 15 months ago. It was able to download mp4 videos at that time.

@kevinmbowen It seems Tadpoles only allows me to download 10 images/videos at a time. I suspect adding sleeps between requests will solve this problem, but I'm not going to do that because I find myself rarely needs bulk downloads. Instead, I add functionality to enable using global variables on, start, and end to specify date range, which will allow me to circumvent the bulk download limit and download all images/videos.

Hello,
thank you for the script - it's awesome.
As mentioned by @kevinmbowen, I'm also only able to download 10 images; I tried using the updated script with start/end but due to my limited skills wasn't able to.

Then found modified script from "rickscherer" and tried it; it worked !

Thank you all.
