iLivid Download Manager is a convenient solution for downloading media files from sharing websites. Furthermore, it has the ability to download from URLs, torrent files, and magnet URLs. What's great about this tool is that you can play both audio and video files while the downloading process is still in progress.
The interface is intuitive and user-friendly. Downloading a video with this particular program is a hassle-free task. You just copy the torrent magnet link or the file's URL, paste it in the link bar, and start the download. As a consequence, the media file will be saved to a specific folder that you previously determined and set as the target path for all the downloads. Obviously, you are able to change the download folder from the settings menu at any moment. In the same location you will find other options that you might find useful. For instance, you can enable notifications to inform you when the download is over and the file is ready to play. Furthermore, you are able to set the number of simultaneous downloads and the maximum bandwidth.
As I already mentioned, with iLivid Download Manager you can watch a movie when the download reaches a given percentage of completion. The ability to play a video that isn't completely downloaded is very convenient. You have the chance to see whether you are about to save the file you are expecting, or decide to better stop the process and look for an alternative.
Among the variety of free download managers found on the web, this application is a tool that I could recommend. It has ease of use as a priority, supports simultaneous downloads, and comes with a built-in popular player that supports most media file formats.
