Free Download Manager v3.9.7 build 1632 Updated

billon on 22 Feb 2017
  • 17MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 21 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by Sydney2K

Free Download Manager (FDM) is a feature-rich tool for handling and accelerating downloads. Includes a site explorer, offline website downloader, scheduler, video downloader (YouTube, Google Video, etc.), BitTorrent support, and more. An included media file preview prevents downloading mislabeled music or video while a ZIP file preview tool saves download time and bandwidth by selectively removing unneeded parts. A hash check capability can verify downloads and the program can be controlled remotely over the Internet (fdmwi.exe).

Especially useful to overcome unreliable/slow connections that require frequent download restarts, when bandwidth is at a premium, or for very large files.

Alternatively, Free Download Manager Portable is available, as well as a "lite" version, which has not been tested for portability.

NOTE: Version 5 of this program is not portable (thanks Joby) and uses a closed-source license.

Excellent program. Seems to have everything that my commercial downloader program (IDM) has and more. Didn't test for browser integration or website downloader because i don't really need, but everything else works great.

Love this program particularly for infrequent or bad internet connections. Helps restart, resume, and find the best connections for downloads. I also use it for the occasional Linux or other big file distribution torrent.

The best download manager. Period.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

I prefer freac snapshots to freac stable because the snapshots support more encoders (including the best one- OptimFROG, Monkey's Audio, WavPack, etc).

mukhi: Please post about possible virus/malware issues in forums. Thanks.

MoisheP on 2015-12-08 06:08

Once again, the installer has malware/adware. Web of Trust rates the site with poor reputation in Trustworthiness and Child Safety. The application itself should be OK, but neither the installer nor the download link above is safe.

MoisheP on 2015-12-08 06:12

According to VirusTotal, the file at http://www.youtubedownloaderhd.com/files/youtube_downloader_hd.zip is clean... but check before using.
