Here's a Method for Downloading Streams from Javhub and Highporn (and others)


Jul 20, 2008
I've seen a number of methods for using jdownloader, Chrome apps/add-ons and others browsers (like Firefox) to download on Highporn or Javhub. Unfortunately, the sites got wise and the player they use often prevents those methods from working, at least it's hit and miss.

Instead, (if you are using a Windows computer), you can try this method that always works great for me:
  • Click a few times to get the banners away and the video started playing
  • Right click beside the video and choose "inspect". This opens the developer debug console. The sites are coded to "pause" the video script when you open debugging. Newer versions of JW player have made it maddening to try to avoid the script breakpoints which pause the playback and prevent you getting the video URL from the network - media tabs.
  • When you first "inspect" and this opens the debugging console, at the top left of the console there is an icon that looks like a square with an arrow pointing into it. This allows you to pinpoint select the portion of site code you want to inspect
  • Click that arrowed square and then click the video. This will jump to the source code section with the video URL. Downloading it straight may work - so try. But if not, read on.
  • Instead, next to code the says src= you will see an underlined URL with a live hyperlink. If you double left-click this, it will automatically select the text of the hyperlink and you can copy it.
    • Now paste this URL somewhere for later
    • ***Sometimes at this point the video URL you copy will download in jdownloader or other downloaders no problem. If that works, great. If not, the only sure fire trick is to continue and use the cURL method below.
  • Now, copy the URL for the javhub or highporn page itself right out of your browser, and paste that somewhere for later too
  • Now, a few manual BUT SIMPLE coding steps:
    • Here ATTACHED is a sample cURL command (you're welcome). The cURL command is everything from the word curl to the mp4 at the end.
    • To modify this cURL command to grab your video, modify this sample cURL script as follows:
      • Open notepad and paste the sample in. Don't use Word or similar programs, as we need this to stay plain text.
      • It should paste in as one long line of script
      • The first URL at the beginning after "curl" is where you paste the URL you just copied from the debugger
      • Then, replace the URL in the script after "Referer: " with the URL at the top of the javhub or highporn page itself in your browser
      • Be careful not to delete any spaces, quotation marks or other characters in the sample cURL, they are all part of the command. Just replace the URLs above with your saved URLs
      • Then rename the file output (the filename at the end of the cURL sample following the "-o " with the name of your video).
      • Be sure not to have any spaces in the video filename you want and be sure after the filename it has .mp4 as the extension like in the sample
      • Now select the entire line of script you just modified and copy it
  • Open command prompt
  • Navigate to the folder where you want the video to download (so the folder you want to save in is showing as the prompt)
  • Now paste your cURL script and hit enter. The download takes a few minutes
  • Once you've done it a few times, it takes five seconds to get the download started.
  • One downside of this method is that javhub and other sites seem to have prevented more than a few streams going to one IP simultaeously. So, if you want to download more than one file, you will have to be patient. If you have too many javhub windows open, or too many cURL commands, or sometimes if its just cranky, javhub will grey out the video window and decline to play. Usually a few refreshes after other streams and windows are closed and you're ready to go again.
  • Some sites that use older (or worse) technology, don't have cURL command functionality

If someone out there knows a better way, please reply with your suggestions.

Using the Video DownloadHelper addon to grab the link and yt-dlp to download it, if you specify the user-agent and referrer, seems to work fine too, at least for right now.

Only tested javhub though, highporn gives a network error loading the player so I can't even view the videos from the website. Could be an issue on my side though, don't really care enough to spend time on it.

An example of the command would look like:
yt-dlp.exe --add-header "User-Agent:Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/ Safari/537.36" --add-header "Referer:" "" -o HAVD-289.mp4

But your method is great for when those kind of easy apps fail.

Please try this extension
Couple months ago I was able to download from these sites. Please don't use this extensions for streams because you will get a length of video greater than original.

You can also can try these methods
curl --insecure --referer "" "" --output LPT_010.mp4

curl --insecure --referer "" "" --output JUTA-023

Please be advised if you use cUrl or yt-dlp please copy a link has been taken from Video Download Helper AND CLOSE A TAB WITH VIDEO. Sometimes it doesn't help and you have to close a browser. The problem is that these sites do not allow more than 1 connection
