Ant Download Manager Pro 1.19.3< のgiveaway は 2020年8月18日
Windows Vista/ 7/ 8/ 10 (x32/x64)
Lifetime with no free updates
"The program comes pre-activated and requires NO additional registration!"
Why doesn't everyone do this?
Because many companies just want your name, email address, and any other information they can grab. If it just comes pre-registered, they can't sell you other tat.
Also, some software just wasn't programmed that way - it requires looking at a server for a registration key for example, which has to be tied to one user, etc, etc. But mainly for the data sucking reason.
I don't use this for general downloads, as its slightly buggy ... it'll download the file while you specify a name/location, then complain the file already exists (as its just downloaded it) and if you wrongly click 'Cancel' to skip the ignorable error, it deletes the download. Easily worked around, but annoying.
For video downloads though, its excellent. Other programs give vague 'Low quality' or 'Standard quality' to download YouTube videos, but this program clearly explains what formats you can download, bitrates, etc. You can specify a location to save them (so if you're downloading a load of episodes of something they can all go in one particular folder). The queue system is good and clear.
Overall, the program is great, but be aware that (youTube especially) change their algorithms and download files so in a couple of weeks/months, this program may not be able to download from YouTube. The program itself will get quickly updated (and the development cycle for this program is excellent - many bug fixes quickly released) but due to the GotD promotion, you won't be entitled to the download - if you update, the program will revert to the free version. The Pro version has good benefits - download 480p+ versions from YouTube, and easily convert from youTube video to MP3 (such a useful function).
Fully recommend this program, but primarily for its video downloading abilities (although sadly not Twitter) and not general file downloading, which Chrome (or your browser of choice) handles sufficiently well anyway.
Shout out to to the programmer (don't have details to hand) who quickly responded to emails and program suggestions when this was last given away. Would fully recommend supporting this program and company.
Be careful, auto-update is activated after install, but there are no free updates.
I have commented on this a few times in the past and is one of the software offerings that I have purchased.
Hands down it is the best downloader out there and I tried them all before settling on this one.
Browser integration is superb and covers all manner of them, some automatic and others with a simple manual process that is covered on their website.
The website has a great and comprehensive user guide and there is also a dedicated support forum.
There is very little that I have not been able to download using it and have also come across sites that I would never expect it to have worked on and it has, so versatility really is great.
There are only 2 little niggles that I have found more prevalent since version 17.
Mpeg dash videos from Youtube can sometimes fail, citing audio codec issues and I have to refresh the browser a couple of times in order to capture the video.
I also found that whilst prior to v17 I could set the concurrent download limit to 10 and have it work, now, when it gets to around 5 or so, the last one in the queue would bomb out with an error, resulting in me having to wait for a couple to finish before adding to the queue.
And one oddity that I have found with a few downloads from Youtube is that whilst normally you get to see the progress window showing file size, progress bar and estimated finish time, with some you get the file size but no progress bar or estimated finish time, and even when the amount downloaded reaches the file size, it continues to download so you have no idea if and when it will finish.
Most downloads download and finish straight away but sometimes there is an additional conversion process but even when it does have to go through a conversion, it is still a quick process in comparison with many other products out there and when it comes to file size, it does tend to choose a ration of size to bitrate that makes for a very efficient process that gives you the quality (all the way to 4K if available) that you want with the smallest of sizes.
Whenever a new downloader comes to the market or on here I will always try to compare to ANT but none to date touches it for overall versatility, convenience, integration, efficiency and consistency.
There are free variations that will do a perfectly good job if you confine your uses to what they offer and are prepared to wait a little longer or have to wait and see if it works on this or that site but this one hits the spot.
In terms of the price, I would say that if the lifetime licence was about $18 or less then way, way more would be sold (note that you also have to add additional taxes in some regions, which does add to the total cost).
Thumbs up as per my previous reviews on this.
