Bug Description

I’ve recently begin using Calibre’s content server and have noticed a few anomalies regarding the EPUB format:

(1) Clicking the “Download” button appears to automatically attempt to determine a single format to download (EPUB appears to given top priority, followed by remaining e-book formats prioritized alphabetically) and contain no obvious way to select an alternative format. The existing button “Download” could potentially be repurposed to download all formats and/or there could be separate download buttons for each available format.
(2) If an item has only non-ebook formats, “Download” assumes a non-existent EPUB format, whose download subsequently fails. For example, attempting to download item 82532 containing a single format “JPG” yields “http://[ip_address]:[port]/get/EPUB/82532/Calibre_Library”, which fails. Manually altering to “http://[ip_address]:[port]/get/JPG/82532/Calibre_Library” downloads the item’s JPG format as expected.

Happy to provide any additional info needed. Appreciate your time.

You can download specific formats by clicking on the individual format.
As for the download button not working with non-ebook formats that will
be fixed in the next release.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every alternate Friday.
