No they’re not the same.

File sharing is illegal. You’re gonna go to jail.

I need a way to auto download from a list of MP3s, either through torrent, usenet, rapidshare, doesnt matter.?

Question by Sean A: I need a way to auto download from a list of MP3s, either through torrent, usenet, rapidshare, doesnt matter.?
I have a list, can be plain TXT, Excel, CSV, doesnt matter how it needs to be formatted. I would like to take this list to load a queue through any type of download service. Any ideas?
Basically something that will search, and automatically add to a download queue, using a program like Utorrent or something similar. My list is too large to manually replace my collection. Any ideas? Maybe some sort of script that can handle this?

Using Wget it seems possible. See the following link, its the 3rd option down.

Clip from the article “First, create a text file called mp3_sites.txt, and list URLs of your favorite sources of music online one per line (like http://del.icio.us/tag/system:filetype:mp3 or stereogum.com). Be sure to check out my previous feature on how to find free music on the web for more ideas.

Then use the following Wget command to go out and fetch those MP3’s:
wget -r -l1 -H -t1 -nd -N -np -A.mp3 -erobots=off -i mp3_sites.txt

That Wget recipe recursively downloads only MP3 files linked from the sites listed in mp3_sites.txt that are newer than any you’ve already downloaded.”
