FileMasta

A federated search application for discovering interesting files that are being shared online, such as video, music, books, software, games, subtitles and much more. Our web crawler keeps our database maintained which regularly updates file information on the contents of thousands of servers worldwide. We don't search file contents.

FileMasta

We host no content, we provide only access to already available files in the same way Google and other search engines do.

Installation

Download and run the latest version of the installer from the releases page.

Issues & Contributions

If you find a bug or have a feature request, please create an issue.

Contributions are highly welcome, however, except for very small changes, kindly file an issue and let's have a discussion before you open a pull request.

Have a server you'd like to share? We've curated a huge collection of public servers being hosted across the web, so it's really simple to keep the list updated as more are discovered. Read more information on contributing here

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this application secure?

Yes. All communications between our servers (Using Dropbox & GitHub) and your client is 100% secure.

How do you handle my privacy?

We don't use cookies, store sessions, userid's or IP addresses.

I have found the files I need, but I cannot download them, the link does not work. Why?

There could be several reasons for that:

  • These files were recently removed from the server they were located, by the owner of the files or by the owner of the server.
  • The server that contains the files has a limit of maximum number of concurrent users, and the limit has been reached. You can try to download the files later when some users are disconnected.
  • The server where the files are is turned off or is not connected to the Internet at the moment.
  • The owner of the server has put a restriction on downloading these files.

How can I download files from FileMasta? Do I need any special program?

You don't need a special program but it is very recommended. For example, if you just open the link in your web browser you can't see what is happening exactly between you and the web server (see previous question). So I would recommend to use a good web client that supports queuing or your favorite download manager, when you located the file you want to download just copy the link and paste it in your web client or whatever, that's it.
