Description

If I am downloading 3 files

1. onelinkfilehostdl_a+k.pr.avi
2. onelinkfilehostdl_a+k.cer.avi
3. onelinkfilehostdl_a+k.recp.avi

Then I could set, before downloading, the names as:

1. Aaron.and.Karens.Wedding.Pre-Reception.avi
2. Aaron.and.Karens.Wedding.Ceremony.avi
3. Aaron.and.Karens.Wedding.Reception.avi

And they would be saved as that while downloading, not renamed afterward (just like when I download a single file using Firefox, I can set the filename before downloading and Firefox will save it with the filename I give).

If I am downloading a set of rars:

1. onelinkfilehostdl_a+k.pr.rar
2. onelinkfilehostdl_a+k.pr.r01
3. onelinkfilehostdl_a+k.pr.r02

Then I could rename them as:
1. Aaron.and.Karens.Wedding.Pre-Reception.rar
2. Boogaloo.r01
3. GreenColors.r02

All downloads will result in exactly one file, because each file is one file!

And they would be saved as that while downloading, not renamed afterward (just like when I download a single file using Firefox, I can set the filename before downloading and Firefox will save it with the filename I give).

Of course J-downloader would not be able to extract this since the files arent named the same (Aaron.and.Karens.Wedding.Pre-Reception.rar, Aaron.and.Karens.Wedding.Pre-Reception.r01, and Aaron.and.Karens.Wedding.Pre-Reception.r02) but that's not the point.

I should be able to set the name of the file before downloading!

This is not a feature that moves the file from the downloads folder, this keeps the file in the downloads folder and simply changes the filename.

If I am not explaining this clearly please let me know and I will do my best to be clearer. Also, I apologize if my tone comes off harsh, I mean no-harm, I'm just doing the best to explain myself!
