After a few hours, the penalty box on your IP is removed, and things will download normally.
This explains how download failed at first for kizer8, and then started working.

One-download-at-a-time works most of the time, but sometimes tiktok even detects the rapid downloads with one thread and puts me in a penalty box.

It would be good if the tiktok plugin had a specific "max simultaneous downloads" setting of 1 for that host - that would solve most of the problems.

I put a screenshot of the CAPTCHA at **External links are only visible to Support Staff**...

Thx for the summary. I think it's more than a few hours to return from the penalty box. I think it was more like 2 days. Just an FYI.
