I need some good download manager for Linux (like IDM on windows). I want it to be able to install a browser plugin too, which allows you to download movies from youtube or other sites easily. It should also make as many as connection possible.
I find myself using DownThemAll (was "downthemall") for my downloads. It's a Firefox plugin and thus available everywhere (a very important reason why I chose it). You can
- download all links / media in a page
- download each item with up to 10 connections
- and yes, you can download Facebook videos
I'd suggest Fatrat - http://fatrat.dolezel.info - the best download manager I've come across myself.
The Jabber remote control feature is what I love the most in the software.
I'd urge everyone to check it out.
You can try out flareGet, which is the fastest download manager for Linux. You can you flashgot for browser integration and video download http://sourceforge.net/projects/flareget/
