Downloading Media

If the project is public a public URL to each media is provided in the csv file. If the project is private, we only provide the file name, as there is not a public URL.

You can still view your media via the dataviewer as long as you log in. Any photo/audio/video can be downloaded using the browser, one by one.

A feature to bulk download the media files for a project is on our todo list and will be added at a later stage.

For the time being, if you are into coding, you could use our API to get the media files programmatically: Get Media - Epicollect5 Data Collection API

There is also a Firefox plugin → Simple mass downloader – Get this Extension for 🦊 Firefox (en-US)
