This extension allows you to rip the contents of an m3u, wmx, or ram playlist file link by right clicking on the link and selecting the "Rip Playlist Contents..." option from the popup menu. By default the option will only appear if the URL ends with one of the supported file extensions. However, you can now enable the menu option on any link by holding the CTRL key when you right click. All the URLs in the M3U file are downloaded via the Firefox download manager to the default download directory or the one specified in the M3U Ripper options. You can also optionally have M3U Ripper create a sub directory with the playlist file name, create the remote playlist file, create a local playlist file, and filter URLs within the playlist files via regular expressions.
