Hello fellow MMD lovers!
Luckily, most MMD makers who upload higher quality versions of their works than Iwara allows do so by using MEGA or Google Drive. But some use pan.baidu.com. Apparently one can download files smaller than 200 or 300MB from within the browser but for bigger ones one needs their Disk utility and an account. There are open source alternatives to this disk utility such as baidupcs-go but one still needs an account.
Problem is: you need a Chinese phone number to create one. And apparently need to solve Chinese captchas from time to time too.
I've tried Chinese throwaway phone numbers but it always says that the format is incorrect. Even if I put in my own phone number. Can someone explain this to me?
So, is it even possible for a non-Chinese person to download bigger files from Baidu? If so, how?
If you want a sample, here is one I wanted to download:
Apparently, it is 10G in size :o

Thank you very much!
