Who does not know Google? This is the best search engine on the Web. Looking closely in the options, Google becomes a real snoop … Warning: I remind you that to download a video or audio file subject to copyright, you must have the original. Math-Linux.com is not responsible of the hijacking of this tip.

Most of the time the audio and video files can be found on Apache server. Files are located in a tree as follows:

Main features of this page:

  • Begins with the title Index of
  • Page contains columns: Name, Last modified, Description and Size
  • A link to the Parent Directory

In Google, if you want MP3 or WMA files, type:

intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(.wma|.mp3) singer_or_title -inurl:(htm|html|php)

you have to choose singer_or_title!!! You can try the following code

 intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(.wma|.mp3) Akon -inurl:(htm|html|php)

Of course, you can download it if and only if you got the originals. Some explanations:

  • intitle criterion of research on page title
  • -inurl criterion to exclude words that are in the url, here we exclude pages htm, html and PHP, to yield directories, it may also exclude asp, jsp etc …
  • (.wma|.mp3) can have pages containing occurrences. WMA or. Mp3

If you are looking for video files of type mpg or avi or divx etc. …


-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(.mpg|.avi|.flv|.wmv|.di) title_of_video
