Transfer Agent v5.4 -- Unattended Media Downloads!
Attention all PLUS and FULL members:

A new Windows-based utility is now available for our paying members (for more information about our services, please click here). We call it the SermonAudio Transfer Agent. This latest tool combines three previously separate tools into one! You can now do the following from a single, convenient program:

  • Download multiple MP3s or Videos completely unattended to your hard drive! Download an entire series of messages overnight while you sleep and listen to them the next day on the go! The downloaded files are now conveniently saved with the sermon's title!

    Only those sermons that have been tagged as "My Favorite Sermons" will appear in the Transfer Agent for batch downloading. Click here for help on adding sermons to your favorites list.

    New! Download via protected podcast feed! You can now use your favorite podcast program (ie: iTunes, Zune) to download all of your favorite sermons and videos as an alternative to the Transfer Agent! Learn more about this..

  • Upload multiple photos at once instead of having to upload one photo at a time. You can also easily add captions to each photo and preview the photos. Images are resized and thumbnails are generated automatically!

  • Upload AUDIOS, PDFs, or VIDEOS to your sermons on SermonAudio without the use of a web browser. This is only available to FULL (broadcasting) Members. This is the recommended method for uploading media to the site.

    New! More File Formats! You can now select more audio and video file formats to upload. MP3, WMA, M4A, WAV, WMV, MP4, M4V, F4V, MOV, MPG.

This tool is available only for PLUS and FULL members. For more information about becoming a member, click here. Enjoy!

If you are running Windows 2000/XP with IE 5.5+ installed, then download the following link and try running the utility! The ZIP file only contains the executable and so the filesize is fairly small..

Please note: This link will also be suitable for those who have already downloaded the full setup and are needing simply to UPGRADE to the latest version. Be sure to copy just the new EXE into your existing Transfer Agent folder.. (ie: C:\Program Files\ (77k)

However, if you are running with a prior version of Windows or if the above link does not work for you, then try installing the complete package by downloading from here (you will still need at least Internet Explorer 5.5 installed in order to use this program): (2MB)

Please let us know right away if you're experiencing any difficulties so we can fix any problems. Thanks and let us know how it goes. We certainly hope you'll continue to enjoy our services! And please consider supporting us through the PLUS or FULL membership services!

Linux Version Available: Paul R. Thompson has graciously created a 'simple command line Sermon Audio Transfer Client' for the Linux Operating System. At the moment you can only download sermons with it, but if you are interested in trying it, e-mail him at or download it here..

Linux Version 0.5 Available! An updated version of the Transfer Agent for Linux has been released which now allows one to also download VIDEOS as well as UPLOAD MP3 sermons (for broadcasters). You can download it at


3/10/14 - Version 5.4b is a very minor update which now eliminates the extra space found in the downloaded filename to keep it consistent with the download filenames from the website itself.

8/10/12 - Version 5.4 is a minor update supports many more allowable video formats for upload including M4V, F4V, MPG.

3/4/11 - Version 5.3 is a minor update that supports the M4A audio format.

10/27/10 - Version 5.1 is a minor update that now supports broader audio and video file formats for uploading including MP3s, WMAs, MP4s, M4Vs, etc.

8/14/07 - Version 5.0 is a major new release with little visual change but a significant back-end change that now supports uploading HIFI MP3 and Video content for HIFI-enabled broadcasters.

7/27/07 - Version 4.3 allows you to upload WMV video files that are encoded at the new higher supported bitrate of up to 340kbps.

1/8/07 - Version 4.1 is a minor change but a necessary one as a communication protocol has changed to match our evolving server back-end. You will not notice any difference visually, but it's something we needed to do. We apologize for the inconvenience of the necessary update. (Version 4.2 fixes a bug found in 4.1).

11/22/06 - Version 4.0 is a new major release with support now for batch photo album DOWNLOADS. This is ideal if you have a portable media player (such as the Zune or iPod) and you wish to take your photos with you on the go! The Transfer Agent will download all photos from selected albums and automatically create the necessary folders to keep things organized.

7/10/06 - Version 3.1 now includes support to save the login information so you don't have to type in your user/pass every time.

5/5/06 - With the upcoming support of VIDEO on SermonAudio, version 3.0 of the Transfer Agent is a major new release which supports VIDEO for multiple (batch) downloads in addition to the regular MP3s. Additionally, Full Members can now use the Transfer Agent to UPLOAD (and RE-upload) PDF and VIDEO files to their sermons along with the MP3 files. Other enhancements include improved stability and bug fixes. (v3.0a includes a number of minor bug fixes, v3.0b includes a fix for people with the "unexpected error" message).

6/14/05 - Version 2.6 introduced a minor cosmetic change upon request that now has a WIDER sermon selector for uploading the MP3 sermons (Full Members Only) so as to make it easier to read long sermon titles.

7/13/04 - Version 2.5 upon request has added two new minor features. First, there is now a way to "Select or De-Select All" items in the list for downloading with one click. Second, we've changed the way the downloaded MP3 files are named to make it even more beneficial for you to organize sermons with ease. The way the file is now named takes on the following format:

Year.Month.Day.EventCode SermonTitle - SermonSpeaker - SermonID.mp3

So for instance, '2004.05.23.E The Return of Christ - Rev. John Greer - 52304165925.mp3'. This naming convention will allow the files to be properly ordered on your computer by date preached. The "EventCode" field reflects the following codes:

A - AM Sunday Service
E - PM Sunday Service
M - Midweek Service
P - Prayer Meeting
R - Radio Broadcast
X - All Other Types

3/30/04 - Version 2.3 now includes the Sermon ID in the downloaded MP3 filename. This is necessary so that we can uniquely identify whether or not that particular sermon has already been downloaded. If it has, then the Transfer Agent will skip it in order to save your time and our bandwidth!

3/1/04 - Version 2.2 is a necessary "technical" change which contains minor enhancements to operate with SermonAudio's slightly-modified server infrastructure. There are no visible changes in this version but it is necessary nevertheless.

6/19/03 - Version 2.1 now supports optionally downloading from the mirror server if available. Please click here to read about the new mirror download server for our MP3 sermons.

3/31/03 - Version 2.02 now properly names and numbers the MP3 sermons downloaded so as to maintain the correct sequence. For example, if you are downloading a series of messages, it will now prefix the filename with numbers (ie: '001', '002', '003', etc) to keep the correct order.

1/20/03 - Version 2.01 is a minor upgrade which now allows you to select or un-select proxy authentication and provides slightly more informative debugging in case of errors.

8/9/02 - Version 2.0 did not undergo any visual change but an important technical change was made in order to support proxy authentication which a number of our users had requested. If you are behind a proxy or firewall that requires authentication for web access, you can now use the Transfer Agent!

7/2/02 - Version 1.16 now allows you to select an entire folder when uploading your photos into the photo album. Previously you could only drag-and-drop your photos into the Transfer Agent.

6/22/02 - Version 1.15 now provides support for uploading announcement clips (applicable for Full Members). You can include an announcement clip with your sermon if you wish. This must only be used for general church announcements and should not be any more than 5 minutes long.

6/1/02 - Version 1.14 now does not force you to specify a caption for each photo you wish to upload. Simply drag-and-drop your pictures, and upload them all instantly! Should help speed things up a bit!

4/10/02 - Version 1.13 now remembers the last download folder you selected so you don't have to select the same folder every time. This version also fixed a problem when trying to download multiple sermons with the same title. It now renames the title appropriately if this is the case.

This sounds like a classic case of a program interfering with the Transfer Agent (perhaps some sort of a filter, firewall, or proxy program running). Is there any chance you could temporarily suspend any such program and try again?

Good Morning,

I am trying to download multiple sermons with the transfer agent but I keep getting the messages "no sermons marked as favourites" and "please select sermons". I have added sermons to "My Favourite Sermons". How do I select those which I wish to download?

I have downloaded the transferagent-setup file 3 times, and unzipped it. Every time I time to run the program I get the "UNEXPECTED ERROR" prompt.

Any Ideas?

Thank You

There does not appear to be any problem with our servers. Are you using the Transfer Agent? It may be a case where there might be a program running on your computer (either a proxy, filter, or other blocking-type program) that is interfering with the download. Are you able to disable any such programs temporarily to test it again?

I have not been able to complete any MP3 downloads for the past two days.
I tried to my MP3 player and just to my computer but the download freezes mid point and will not proceed. Is there a problem at the site??? Or is it the operator?? (Me)!!
Please Help!

If anyone is interested, I have created a simple command line Sermon Audio Transfer Client for the Linux Operating System. So far you can only download sermons with it now, but if you are interested in trying it, e-mail me at:

I'm glad you were able to get the solution quickly! It's difficult for us to know what exactly the problem is since everyone's computer is configured differently. But problems like these are almost 100% of the time related to another program interfering with the Transfer Agent.. as you have found. Thank you for sharing that!

Well, I have a "download praise report". After I posted my message I went back to verify that no "blocking programs" were running. I had disabled the firewall, and could not think of any other program that even MIGHT interfere. As I looked at the programs running, my attention was drawn to the "accelerator" program my ISP provides for the Dial-Up service. Sure enough, when I turned off the accelerator - my list of marked files appeared!

I can not get the Transfer Agent to work either. I have several files marked as favorites, but when I run the agent program I get an error message that I don't have any files marked for downloading. What is the problem??

To Olan, usually this problem is attributed to something interfering with the Transfer Agent on your PC. For example, if you have any kind of "firewall" or "blocking" type program running (ie: anti-spyware, NetNanny, etc), please try disabling it temporarily and try again.

All sermons are encoded in the MP3 format and should download that way. If you are having difficulties with this, please refer to:

Melrose, are you referring to not being able to download using the Transfer Agent or not being able to download sermons at all? The Transfer Agent program is only for paying members (either FULL or PLUS). For more information about our services please refer to the About Our Services section of the site.
