Editors' Review

The name might not be the most creative, but the Internet Download Manager does exactly what it promises: helps you download and organize files. The best part is that you can schedule downloads and use filters to get the specific files you want.

The compact interface is packed with options, but the main features are easily accessed from a toolbar at the top. We would have liked to see a bit more user guidance up front, but a tutorial does cover the basics, and there is a more detailed Help file if you get stuck. You can also go the easier route with the program's integrated Web browser options, which work with nearly all of the most popular browsers, including Internet Explorer and Firefox. Each time the program recognizes a video in FLV format on a site like YouTube, you'll see a button, and it's one click and you're off and running. From the main interface, all you have to do is add the URL for a video to get started. A new window shows you the status and allows you to pause the recording and set up a few options for what to do with the file once the download completes. As advertised, the speed was good and we didn't have any issues with test files we downloaded, which included MP3s, FLVs, and MPEGs. Our favorite feature was the scheduler, which was easy to set up and lets you choose where and when the program will download files. We especially liked the fact that if you lose your Internet connection, the program will resume downloading your selected or scheduled files once everything's up and running again.

The download and installation of IDM was easy and fast, and it uninstalled cleanly. If you're looking for a program that you can basically set and forget to video downloads, this is a good option.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Internet Download Manager 6.12 build 15.

"they used to be good, but i can't get buy it anymore?"

February 28, 2015  |  By ancientspirit

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.23 build 2

Pros

when I owned two licenses for two old computer this program was the best!!!

Cons

know i try to buy it (3rd time vial credit card) I get a cancel charge, saying my credit card is fraud? funny, it still works when I buy gas?

also if you use it for Google (which I do with a lot of my internet searches) it loves to download for no reason at all? I have complained to IDM with photos i saved, but they never or don't want to fix this problem. I wished I could by the dame program, but when I do I get a charge of $15.00 for something going wrong on my credit card, considering I have contacted my credit card and they told me, that there nothing wrong with it in the first place? I think they do it on purpose (there 2check.com) just to get a free charge of the credit card owner of $15.00 bucks)

Summary

if they fix the Google problem (of it wanting to download everything? (good luck because I complained since year 2008)? than its a great program. Then you got to go past their crazy ordering and if your lucky you won't be branded "fraudulent" (know I got to recheck my credit history, if they didn't screw it up)

Engineering id done very best with intelligent structure, well maintained.

"Be Smart and Do Not Buy IDM"

January 01, 2015  |  By dakota5611

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.21 build 17

Pros

It is fast when the server is freed up. It get slow when is busy. It cannot make the outgoing server faster than it is. Ridiculous claims made by some persons here.

Cons

Suspicious slowing down of my two laptops after I uninstalled before the trial expiry date.

Summary

Those praising IDM must be selling IDM themselves!

YTD is better and more direct. There are a handful downloaders doing the same job and it is free.
