Download a Bunch of Files

To download a bunch of files, create a plain text document listing the URL to each file line-by-line and call it, for instance, list.txt. Now save list.txt somewhere in a directory, open a shell and type:

wget --continue --tries=inf --input-file=list.txt


  • –continue (or for short -c) will resume the download in case the download failed,
  • –tries=inf (or for short -t inf) will infinitely retry to download a file - this helps with spurious disconnects.
  • –input-file=list.txt (or -i list.txt for short) specifies that the URLs should be read from the file list.txt.

wget will then download all the files to the directory where you issued the command.
