    If you don't wanna pay for IDM (which btw it's the best IMHO),this one is a brilliant freeware alternative...and i mean it :thumb:
    It's still young,i would love to see an advanced browser integration feature...my main browser is Comodo Dragon and Eagleget doesn't work with it.

    I still use Flashget 1.73 that was last updated in 2006.

    Can anyone tell me what this or IDM can do that Flashget can't?

    Great Application. Thanks for sharing. It works with Comodo Dragon for me.

    For me,IDM is able to download videos from way more sites than Eagle,and is integrated 100% in Sandboxie.And the download speed is faster.But that's just my experience.
    Update: It doesn't seems to work with Comodo IceDragon (not sandboxed),even with the plugin installed and enabled.

    Since I noticed that Maxthon downloader is not working well - many files are corrupted when using it - , so I'm trying EagleGet.

    So far this downloader is easy-to-use and effective. Thanks to Overkill for the timely suggestion for me - exactly when I needed...

    Mods, please forgive me for just a second as I go off topic....

    I assume when you say "Gizmo Richards recommendation" that you mean Gizmo's Freeware site (Techsupportalert.com). I just need to point out that is not necessarily Gizmo's recommendation. The recommendations there are not Gizmo's per se, rather, they are the recommendations of volunteer editors. Yes, it is Gizmo's site, but it is staffed with dozens and dozens of volunteers (just like these forums are staffed by volunteers). Editors/volunteers review, test, and then make recommendations. Gizmo Richards writes little these days as he spends much of his time in the background keeping the site up and running.

    Like I said, it is his site, but they are not his recommendations. I just felt the need to point that out in case it wasn't clear.

    P.S. Yes, I am an editor there and a mod on their forums.

    Have used IDM for a year and it's great :) Too bad the license I have has expired and now am back with FDM (FreedownloadManager). It get's the job done but I feel that I need to check out some new things out there. Am trying out FlashGet again after a week seems the same with FDM and the freeware version of DAP.

    Does EagleGet download YouTube/flv files (embedded)...? Does it have any issues with FlashGot..?

    Just asking here :)

    "C:\Program Files(x86)\EagleGet\eagleSniffer.dll

    Unable to register the DLL/OCX:Regvr32 failed with exit code 0x5...

    ............etc"

    Retrying does not do the job abd I have aborted more than thrice now. Any ideas..?

    EagleGet is alright but not sure about the acceleration of the downloads. Roughly takes the same time with normal firefox inbuilt downloader.:(

    I assume that Mr Richards oversees whats being published on his site and in his newslettervso if its there I assume he has approved. Personally I liked the old way he had of doing things but this is better than nothing.

    Out of respect for this site, and for the other posters in this thread, and in order to not go off topic, just let me say that if you have questions, feel free to PM me.

    My apologies to the mods, I just should have just left well-enough alone. It was inappropriate of me to discuss another site on these forums.

    It depends on the your, and the server's, bandwidth. My experience with these types of software is similar to yours. Personally, I don't bother with anything the browser can already provide.

    So Binreader, JDownloader, uTorrent are my downloaders. For online videos, I use VideoCacheView and YouTube Center (disable DASH for easy cache retrieval and provides download links). Also, you don't even have to install anything, just add pwn before youtube.com
