How to download music from VK?

More often than not, we don’t refer to the music files that are on the computer at all, because all our favorite music is on our pages on social networks. However, there are situations when it is simply necessary to download some kind of musical composition, and it is long and difficult to search for it on the Internet. In this article we will explain how to download music from the site "VKontakte".

Download music through the source code of the page

This method of downloading music from the VC is somewhat difficult to perform, but at the same time, it is considered the safest and does not require the installation of additional software on the computer.

Opening code

So, you need to go to VC and find the song you want to download. Then you need to click on this song with the right mouse button and select the line “View item code” in the context menu. After that, browsers like Chrome will open the code area at the bottom of the screen, and in other browsers a separate tab or window may open.

Work with code

In this code, the entire string will be highlighted.Near this line you need to find the code <div class = "play_btn fl_l" </ div> or something similar to it. Then you need to click on the triangle on the left so that the content of the code is expanded. In the code that appears, you need to find a link that is in the parameters of the value tag. For example, value = http: //cs1-29v4.vk.me/p15/f646a621d448ab.mp3 ?. As you can see, the value of this tag is nothing more than a link. You need to copy it, paste it into the browser line and press Enter. A black box opens with the player and the song we need. You just need to click anywhere in the field with the right mouse button and select the item “Save as ...” After that you need to choose the place where to download the song and download it.
