For me DM crash when i try to lauch it.
After (<1 week) I had no problems :/
I've try DN for 1 week, and I found 2 things:
- When DN captures a download, the browser's download popup still appears (in IDM, it's disabled) while DN's is minimized suddenly when clicking on. (So I have to manually close the browser's popup, click on DN's again).
- 1 bug: After a week, DN's icon on tray bar automatically disappeared when I move mouse to, it's process neither.
I would try DN again later ^^
I suspect this is due to a bug I found this week when setting the Hide main Window at startup option. Basically if this option is set the program crashes
I've fixed it in an interim build available here:
The new release available later this week will resolve this problem and a few others but if you can't wait try the installer above.
I'm loosely considering the possibility of offering a paid version but as there are already free alternatives available I'm not sure how well that would work. My intention at the minute is to have a bit of fun developing it and see where it goes.
When we talk about media grabbing are we mainly talking about YouTube here or do you use IDM to download from other sites in FLV format?
I've tried IDM on a few sites and it doesn't seem to work on most, only on youtube?
The second.What browser are you seeing this on? Are you seeing this on all downloads or only on downloads that would have opened the link in a new window anyway?
Thank MikeD, I'll wait for the stable release.I think this is probably due to the problem mentioned above, you can try this to resolve it or wait for my new release later this week which should be quite a bit more stable:
Please, please don't make it feature restricted and having a paid version. There are a lot of excellent and totally free download managers, like EagleGet, Free Download Manager, Xtreme Download Manager, it'll be tough to be compete. Moreover you're free to accept donations, and faithful users will be happy to donate.
At this point I can't see DN being released as a paid version.
I meant in the future. We need excellent free alternatives for IDM. Anyway if the download manager includes a multiple-queue and media grabber, I'll be glad to donate, and am sure many others would follow.
One thing that I really don't like is feature restricted "free" DM's like DAP, IDA, FlareGet having either adware, or restricted features.
