A couple of months ago I signed up for a paid online course. Their terms of service indicate that these video lectures are for streamed viewing and not to be downloaded. There's a 2 hour commute from my home to work and back. Recently I've been downloading these videos and watching a lecture a day during commute.
I've been using
FlashGot add-on in FireFox with
aria2 downloader installed in Ubuntu to download the video lectures. I've set the
max-connection-per-server=1 option in
aria2. My question is:
Will the web servers be able to detect my downloads?
