Gita Audio files for download

Download Audio Files of Gita(Bhagavadgita) Chanting in Sanskrit. 

Recently my mom wanted the sankrit chanting of Gita slokas on her phone. I googled and was surprised that I had to spend more than half an hour to search and download the files. The closest was this(http://www.astrojyoti.com/bhagavadgitamp3.htm) but the links were all broken. I had to manually copy the urls to browser and download. If you are searching for the download of Gita files you are in luck. Just click on the download links in below table.

If you are a developer and want to know what I did read on.

Techies read on. Well I was not in mood to spend time on automation/macros. So today I took out some time to automate those and learnt a few things in the process :P

  1. It is difficult to copy the columns from a HTML table. Download https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/table-capture/iebpjdmgckacbodjpijphcplhebcmeop?hl=en . This extension will help you highlight(lowlight in fact :P) and copy the table contents to a google doc.
  2. In google doc you can select a column. I selected the column that contains the download url (just text and not the download link)
  3. By the way when you have a column that is created using formula but you want to convert that to just plain values. Do a copy of the column and then do a past special with 'paste only values' option.
  4. You can use  =LEFT(B2, FIND("mp3", B2)+2) to extract the text ending with first occurance of mp3
  5. To force download a file on the client side you can use the download attribute in the anchor tag. Check out my links Download MP3 to know more :)
    BTW if you are thinking why am I mixing up stuff, I recently realised that the reason most people don't share their learnings is that they try to make it very organized and in the process loose their motivation. So I am planning to share my knowledge more in an adhoc manner which reduces the burden on me.
