Free Download Manager (FDM for short) is a free, efficient, and comprehensive solution for managing all your downloads. Its support for YouTube, the most popular online media site, as well as for the BitTorrent protocol will let you download all types of documents, e-books, video and audio files, etc., and manage all of them in one single interface.

You can copy and paste any number of YouTube URLs to the program’s main window and choose your preferred level of quality – among those available for that particular video – for each of them.
This includes the possibility of downloading only the audio stream of the online video in any of the codecs provided. Videos can be previewed while the download is in progress, which will allow you to download only those videos you really like. The program will use your default media player to open and play back the selected file. Before starting the download process, you can define the times and the days of the week on which your downloads will be active. Unfinished downloads will resume automatically at those times, just as any broken download that was interrupted for some reason.

While downloading your favorite online videos, you can also open any torrent files and manage their download in parallel. The program’s attractive and well-designed interface comes with specific tabs for you to view your torrent downloads, your YouTube downloads, those that have finished downloading, those that are still active, etc. You decide the maximum number of simultaneous downloads, as well as the upload and download speeds. You can also select which files within the torrent file will be downloaded and where. You may define a specific port range and configure your proxy settings manually and control your overall traffic easily and effectively. FDM’s particular way of managing your downloads by breaking them down into smaller sections will make the most of your connection and of the download and upload speeds available.

Free Download Manager keeps improving its many features with every new release. This 100% free and reliable app only needs support for a wider range of popular video sites other than YouTube to become one of the best free, easy-to-use, and efficient download managers you can opt to.
