A common tool that downloads files from different file hosting servers like Rapidshare, Megaupload, FilesTube etc will be really useful. MDownloader does exactly that. You can add a file URL and the tool will automatically detect and starts downloading it. MDownloader is another useful windows utility from CodePlex. The tool supports 17 plus file hosting services.
If you are a registered user of any of these services you can configure the same in MDownloader for each of these file hosting services. Otherwise anonymous connection will be used. Similarly if you have API Key of FilesTube, you can configure the same to overcome the limited queries it supports per day. It supports most of the major file hosting sites.
If you want to download multiple files you can queue them after adding all those download links to MDownloader.
MDownloader differs from similar tools because of some of the extra features it has. It does the Password detection and captchas recognition using the buit-in OCR engine. will try to recognize Captcha, but if it cannot, then manual recognition is required and the Captcha will be presented to the user.
MDownloader also does the page parsing to find supported links & matching interchangeable link and will take action accordingly. For those providers which support it in anonymous mode , download resuming is also available.
You can add links by pasting links in a text-area. Then click on the “Recognise Links” button the MDownloader will try to look at the links and tell you if they are working or not. Once MDownloader recognise them then you can do the “Queue All” to queue the files download.
Another interesting feature is the download acceleration using interchangeable links or proxy servers. This is really useful to avoid delay in downloading by choosing the right proxy.
