Download managers for file hosting sites

Its file hosting services blogging day that sounds pretty corny, anyways since am on a roll here (see previous post how to mask rapidshare links), Just thought I should go on an post on some great download managers you can use in order to make it easy when downloading via file hosting services like megaupload, yousendit etc. The download managers I have mentioned below pretty much cover some of the most popular, most used file hosting services online. Firstly for those of you who are probably wondering what in the world are download mangers, they are applications dedicated to the task of downloading (and sometime uploading) possibly unrelated stand-alone files from (and sometime to) the Internet for storage. They allow you to push your bandwidth a bit more to get the maxium out of it and usually the output is faster download speeds.

Some of the common features that download mangers have are

  • Resuming broken or paused downloads (especially for very large files).
  • Downloading files on poor connections.
  • Downloading several files from a site automatically
  • Pausing currently downloading files, which can be restarted at a later date or time.

Here are some of the downlaod managers you may wish to give a try.

Universal Share Downloader( free)

If you usually come across downloads from free hosting sites you'll probably have noticed that they're all quite unfriendly lots of ads, waiting times, extra clicks, passwords and some other elements make downloading from free hosting services a real pain. Universal Share Downloader pretty much lets you avoid all that pain. No waiting times, no ads, just paste in your link and your download link and your good to go. The download manager handles the whole downloading process in a very convenient way, saving you all the hard work. the manager is configured to work with more than a hundred free hosting services, they are just way to many to list down here you can check out the main site for the list. Application home page can be found here.

Rapget (free)

Rapget is a small light weight application (about 200 Kb) capable of autodownloads from 67 free share services. Pretty much works in same way as Universal Downloader, but less versatile.
