    Review JDownloader 2

    You have to perform several downloads simultaneously, but you can't pay attention to them. Forget about the problems. You need JDownloader 2. Indeed, as its name suggests, we are not talking about anything else but the second version of one of the most famous download managers, an indispensable tool for users with too many files to take to their computer.

    JDownloader 2 is a download manager specialized in managing downloads from sites such as Rapidshare, netload.in, freakshare, Depositfiles, etc.

    On the Internet, there are many places where you can download files directly. By "directly," we mean that a file can be downloaded directly from the browser without using additional software to perform the download. The pages that offer "direct download" files usually impose a series of limits to unregistered users, making us have to wait a few seconds or validate a captcha before we can start downloading. To remove such restrictions, we can purchase a premium account on that download page or use software like the one we analyze below.

    JDownloader 2 makes it easy to download files from different file hosting sites. So if we want to download a file from RapidShare and another from freakshare, we have to copy the link and paste it into the program. This way, we will always use the same interface to download files, regardless of the page from which we download them.

    It should be noted that the waiting times and the captcha will still exist. Still, we will forget to click on two or three links before the download starts because once we paste the link into the program and the download starts, the program will take care of the countdown and will automatically display a window where we must enter the captcha.

    If you have a premium account on any download hosting pages, you can configure it in the program and use this premium account's advantages. The program supports practically all file hosting services, so that we will have no problems configuring the premium accounts. If we do not have a premium account for any service and want to acquire it, we can do it directly from the program itself.

    The integrated Link Capturer function dramatically facilitates the process of downloading files. This option means that just by copying one or several links to the clipboard (Control+C), the file links will automatically be transferred to the JDownloader 2 interface, where we can start downloading them. Very typical are the pages where multiple links to files hosted on RapidShare, etc., are placed. If we download these files manually, we must click on each of the links and be aware of when the countdown of each of them ends, in addition to entering the captcha. With this program, we will only have to select the links with the mouse, press Control+C (copy), and press the Start Download button. The program automatically counts down and displays the captcha at the appropriate time. This way, we can perform any other task while the files are downloading.

    The program can automatically decompress the downloaded files so that we will forget about that task.

    Some download servers limit the number of downloads per hour from the same IP. You can restart the router to get a new IP and avoid this limit. We can configure the program to restart the router without our intervention automatically.

    We can easily configure one or more proxies in the Connection Manager menu if we use one or more proxies.

    In addition, we will be able to download videos from different video sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, Justin.tv, and more. We will also be able to download music from Grooveshark, SoundCloud, Jamendo, and more.

    Some of the improvements that JDownloader 2 brings concerning its previous version are: shorter startup time, creation of rules depending on the type of file being downloaded, the captcha window can be resized, and more.

    In short, the program makes it much easier to download files from a multitude of different sites. The software is free, although it has the possibility of acquiring a premium account in which we will have certain advantages such as remote control via the web and applications to control the program via Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone.

    Indeed, if you have ever wanted to download a movie of good quality, you may have found that it is divided into several fragments so that none of them is so heavy. The problem is that if we have to leave the house, downloading all the pieces can take us much longer than watching the tape, and that doesn't make sense. That's why we have the file download gestures.

    The aim of jDownloader 2 is to simplify as much as possible the procedure for downloading different files, whether they are complete or split so that the user does not have to waste time checking that everything goes well. What sites does it work with? With practically all known storage sites, among which we can mention Mediafire, MEGA, 4Shared, and many more.

    Thanks to software like this, you will be able to add all the download links of each of the fragments so that automatically one of them ends, the next one begins, and when you return home at night, you already have all the fragments downloaded to join them and be able to watch the movie as soon as possible. This is not only to save time but also to ensure that you are not watching the website from which you have to download those files.

    What happens if I am downloading and my Internet connection is cut off? It happens that you will learn firsthand one of the best features of this program. The downloads in this system resume exactly where they left off, so you won't have to worry about large files that you have to start downloading again if your Internet connection fails before the download is complete.

    Another undoubted advantage of this download manager is that you can download several files simultaneously, pause them or restart them whenever you want. This way, you can download two parts of a video simultaneously, or two videos, without waiting for one to download first. You choose the limits on the number of files that can be downloaded simultaneously, although the more files there are, the lower the bandwidth dedicated to each one.

    Just talking about bandwidth, some users may not want to sacrifice their entire Internet connection for the files they are downloading, at least not while using their computer for other purposes. JDownloader 2 will allow you to set the bandwidth the application should use for its goals, and you can modify it as many times as you want according to your needs.

    What happens if I have a Premium account for any of these services? You can access the benefits that this provides, such as the best download speed, eliminating annoying waits between the download of one file and another, etc. This download manager does not cancel any of the advantages Premium users of storage services have.

    On the other hand, it is fair to point out that jDownloader 2 is probably one of the most accessible file managers to use. You don't need to be an expert to manage to download files or fragments of them by taking advantage of its services. You must copy the URL of the file you want to download and paste it into the system. If it is a file divided into several fragments, you can paste them altogether since the software recognizes them.

    Then, if you usually download from sites like the ones we mentioned at the beginning, you will know that there are certain limitations related to the number of files we can download per day. Well, the developers of this manager have added a tool called New IP, which allows you to cheat those storages to avoid these inconveniences and to be able to continue downloading without limitations.

    And don't lose sight of the add-ons of this program. In total, we have more than 3,300 options in extensions that we can download to customize our experience of use and downloads according to the storage sites that we usually use. If you want to transform this manager into one much more advanced than it is initially, you should check the Add-ons section in Options.

    What kind of formats does this software work with? Almost all the formats are used to fragment files uploaded to services of this type. Among them, we can mention:

    • DLC
    • JDC
    • CCF
    • RSDF

    Any criticism to make to jDownloader 2? Perhaps a minor complaint we can make based on our experience with this browser has to do with the fact that on a couple of occasions, it has not continued a download interrupted by force majeure, such as when the Internet connection is cut off. However, this issue was not repetitive in our tests, and we believe it will hardly affect the experience of most users.
