Download speed booster with file-management and video-downloading capabilities. It works with all the major web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer or Safari.

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.

I love, love, love this program my problem is, my computers have all been junk and will blue screen or black screen on me or just eat/burn up the computer and I keep losing my puzzles. I thought I had saved all of them to a back up but they didn't go through and I did not know this until I tried to set them up on my new computer UGH! But I still love the program. I paid for numerous amount of the puzzles and now afraid I have lost the puzzles for good this time.

What crap...only from YouTube? You kidding me? There's so many other downloaders out there that work on ANY site. Definitely a NO for this!

Of course it can download from any site. But in order to be able to download media content from various media sites you'll need to install add-on. Read this for more details:
