Tiny file size and very-functional download manager.

Great to use for servers that limit download speeds to a low KB/s.

My only tiny nitpick is probably to change the default download parts from 1 to 2 or maybe 4. Other than that, thumbs up!

Oh man, you are my hero.
Today I spent an hour looking for some small and portable downloader. Found noting and here you are. =)
Thank you!

Free Download Manager v3.9.7 build 1641

billon on 13 Dec 2018
  • 17MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Nov 2018
  • 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: The program will now prompt for upgrade to the newest version on startup, which is not portable (thanks Joby) and uses a closed-source license.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder. It writes some values to the registry, but these are not related to any user settings.
Dependencies: WinXP: requires Service Pack 3 or above
Stealth: ? No
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPL
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer (v3.9.7) and install to the default folder
  2. Run the program and from the menu, select "File" - "Create Portable Version" and copy to a folder of your choice
  3. Uninstall the program
  4. Delete unins000.exe and unins000.dat
  5. Launch fdm.exe

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.

shnbwmn on 2016-01-07 20:31

The best download manager. Period.

I've just installed the latest standard version v6.17.0 and it has an option to create a portable version.

When becomes TVideodownloader updated? It´s not working anymore on almost all websites i use. Before it downloaded just fine.

vmars316 on 2018-12-30 17:12

Windows 10 , TVideoDownloader for x64
Whenever I Add a url link
program returns a message "adding given URL"
and then when I press Download
up pops an error window with
"Please add links first ".
Any fix for this ?

Midas on 2018-12-31 08:50

@vmars: I have no clue on your problem but, as TVideoDownloader is only a GUI frontend to youtube-dl, ffmpeg and some other CLI tools, you could try updating those. YMMV.

@juverax: have you tested it? It works alright from here.

juverax on 2021-01-14 22:16

It works perfectly, though I did not test it thoroughly.
I like the "good old look and feel" from the Win98, Win2K era, but the usability ... could be better.

I meant the download link, not the program itself.

Problems with this project. It do not run on Windows 8.1 and it seems the MSI of the last version is corrupted. Could the author make the software Windows 8-friendly?

Incorrectly downloads files bigger than 4 GB. For example, if you have 5 GB file, it downloads only some 1 GB. And the speed isn't that fast. I think, that's why the author discontinued it.

I have reproduced this and have confirmed it is a problem in the included version of wget.exe. Unfortunately the wget executable can not just be replaced so it is a bit of work to fix this problem."

i like this download manager because this needs no serial number

freakazoid on 2012-01-22 23:52

This is actually a pretty neat download manager for its size. I removed a lot of the columns to make it more like a download manager and less like a timed download app.

A good backup when I'm not using Opera or Firefox with DownThemAll.
