You want just that part


It's quite simple, when you want to download something that's on rapidshare, do the following:

1. go to the rapidshare link and click 'free' (so not the premium thing)
2. on this page, there's a counter that counts down from a specific amount of time before it displays the download link, view the source of this page
3. at the end of the source, there's a line with lots of numbers and % symbols, copy this line
4. go to and paste the line you copied, onto the line
5. click encode now
6. direct link is shown
