        <configuration>
            <!-- root directory that downloaded driver binaries will be stored in -->
            <rootStandaloneServerDirectory>/my/location/binaries</rootStandaloneServerDirectory>
            <!-- Where you want to store downloaded zip files -->
            <downloadedZipFileDirectory>/my/location/zips</downloadedZipFileDirectory>

By default the plugin will download the most recent binary specified in the RepositoryMap.xml for every driver/os/bitrate. If you want to filter out the ones you don't need have a look at the advanced usage options below.

Custom RepositoryMap.xml

You should supply your own RepositoryMap.xml file, if you don't supply one a default one (which will most likely be out of date) will be used instead. Your RepositoryMap.xml must match the schema available at Here.

How do I get the SHA1/MD5 hases for the binaries I ant to download?

The people providing the binaries should be publishing MD5/SHA1 hashes as well so that you can check that the file you have downloaded is not corrupt. It seems that recently this does not seem to be happening as a matter of course. If you can't find a published SHA1/MD5 hash you can always download the file yourself, check that it is not corrupt and then generate the hash using the following commands:

On a *nix system it's pretty easy. perform the following command:

openssl md5 <filename>
openssl sha1 <filename>

On windows you can do the following (according to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/889768):

FCIV -sha1 <filename>
FCIV -md5 <filename>

Below is an example RepositoryMap.xml that I will endeavour to keep up to date so that you can just copy/paste the contents into your own file.
