[REL] Bookmarklet to download original files from the Plex web interface

Download original files from the Plex web interface

If you are using Plex, but you are not the owner of a server, the option to download a file is missing from the Plex web interface. This bookmarklet lets you download original files regardless if you are the server owner or not. It's like Direct Stream, but with a save button.

Details and instructions can be found at https://piplong.run/plxdwnld/

    Not sure why no one has commented yet, but I'll throw my thanks to you for this.
    I wrote a version of this in a powershell script before coming across this, but yours is much cleaner and easier.
