Young Goodman Brown a.k.a Download songs from Facebook
Imp Note : This post is for Educational Purpose only!!
It all began one day when i was playing this game called ” Dying for Daylight”. Its an awesome Hidden object Game and makes for good timepass. I thoroughly enjoyed playing it but what i enjoyed more was the main menu song….it was just so much melodious that i had to have it but i did not know from where it comes. A little look at the menu told me that the song was ” Young Goodman Brown” by ” The Scarlet Furies” (May God Bless them!!)
So i tried searching for it online but i could not find it. The Song was available for listening online at various places but the only place i could download it was on iTunes and amazon( Which i honestly did not want to use!!!). So i decided to see if i could download the song using one of the various tricks i know( You know how it is that you crave for the thing the most which you are said that you cannot have….philosophy ?? Man, I am growing up :D). And this is what i did….
A google search on the song returned the foll page of which the below were the top results which allowed me to listen to the entire song online (Listen to it…i am sure you will be addicted to it 🙂 ) :
But none of them provided me the option of downloading the song. So i decided to see through the source to see if i could find the song’s source. The first two sites did not show me the address of the server where the song was hosted( they must have had a setting in their Music Player API).
However a look at the page source of the facebook page showed that the Player API needed to be passed the song’s address as a parmeter to play it as shown in the code below :
<embed type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” src=”http://facebookprofile.sonicbids.com/_ui/mp3/audioplay.swf?file=http://www.sonicbids.com/epk/files/Get.aspx?g=3b17b8b4-c3f9-4a55-acc7-ec1a2117d8cf&auto=yes&sendstop=yes&repeat=1&
So all i had to do was to go to the file location(the bold text in the above code) in my browser and it would provide me with the download of the song(What Joy!!!).
Note : this is just something i did to test my skills, However i urge you to buy the song off amazon or iTunes if you like it.
Now with that out of the way, the above process got me thinking that if this method works with this song the you can also download other songs which Facebook allows you to listen via their API. Just look at the embed tag in the page’s source. Find the “file=” property and you can get the song directly from that location. Try it with any other song that you like on facebook’s page.
Let me know how it goes for you or If you need any help…
