Can someone suggest me a download manager with IDM function? I would like download manager with IDM function like :

  1. I am seeking a download manager which is able to help me to download not only in Youtube

    see image

  2. Everytime we are going to download a file, it will pop out a download prompt asking whether we are going to download the file and where we gonna keep the file

    enter image description here

I would like to apologize for being a noob, but i really hope someone can solve my problem here.. thanks very much

Note : I have install Xtreme Download Manager, but I don't get it how to use it as everytime I want to download, XDM never prompt a download option and sometime, Youtube link just not working.. I have just migrated from Windows to Ubuntu 15.04 for the first time in my life..


I think the best alternative to IDM on linux is FlareGet, but u'll have to buy the full version to get the full experience , if u want to stick to free software, you can use uget, it's free, it's powerful, and u can use Flashgot integration to make it intercept all the downloads from Firefox, you can even download youtube videos, just like with idm.

  • do those apps support downloading video like IDM do? – Adi Yono Jun 27 '15 at 15:04

    Yes, use Flashgot along with Uget, you will be able to download any video, and even choose the quality. – Dzero Jun 27 '15 at 15:12
