    Eagleget is good, does everything IDM do and has almost everything I want from and download manager except one. The reliability. Download freezes or stop all of a sudden. Resume capability is slightly worse than IDM. Resuming is a problem for me because I have slow and unreliable internet. I still try it from time to time, last time was about 2 months ago and this problem is still there. It was there when I first used it about 2 years ago and still not fixed. Maybe they can fix these issues in the future but for now IDM is the King.
    @jackuars, can Eagleget download from Mega? And is there any other download manager besides IDM, Eagleget or XDM that can grab videos from any websites?

    Sometimes I do get freezes at 99.9%, but on pausing and resuming, things work back to normal. Still when the download stops, refresh download address features takes care of the task. It's true that in terms of stability it's a notch below IDM, but it's much faster. They are working on a new download engine, and also creating a Linux version. Hopefully then EagleGet can iron out it's flaws.

    EG and IDM doesn't download from Mega as far as I know. But I use Mega Downloader which can integrate with EG. In terms of media capturing capability EagleGet is better than IDM in that it allows you to download through a 3 way technique- video sniffer, media grabber and browser extension. XDM is also good but falls below them. Other download managers aren't that good in terms of media detection.

    Indeed. My net sucks now that I have to limit the DL speed to 25 kbps or I won't be able to view either FB or MT.

    I've been using FDM or IDM since way back. For all its (IDM) quirks and flaws, I'm still using it. There are times where a dowwnload is stucked at 99%, I simply pause and restart. Annoying at times but I can live with that and is content with IDM.


    Maybe you don't, but here we have a slow unreliable net. Sometimes download gets interupted by a few second power failure. It's a God send to continue where you left of instead of starting over again. @XhenEd can relate.

    I use Mega Downloader too but its not as fast as Download managers although reliable.
    Browser extension/integration is enough for me to download streaming videos. How does Eagleget's media grabber compare to Jdownloader's?

    IDM Lifetime License is 3 Years Free Updates/Upgrades..........after 3 Years expiry, you can use IDM i.e it will not get disabled But you will not get updates/upgrades.

    Is IDM purchase a one-time payment? For how long is IDM license valid?

    As far as I know, that limitation hasn't been implemented yet. So, all users who purchased lifetime license several years ago still enjoy all the updates/upgrades today. :D

    I read that it's still open to be implemented anytime, though. :)

    Isn't there a site in VN offering good price for lifetime?
    Btw I find FDM sometimes is much slower than IDM.

    I don't say the opposite, but in Vietnam 500k VND is equivalent to 25 sandwiches. very few will buy it.
