When we want to download files from a site, mostly we use some download managers to get the file. The popular download manager is IDM-Internet Download Manager. But it is comes with a trial pack. If you wish, you can buy it. But today I'm going to suggest you a download manager which is probably acts as an alternative to IDM. The file downloader which we are going to see is named as IDA-Internet Download Accelerator, a freeware ad-supported version and also Pro-version is available.

Besides the fact that it's supposed to accelerate downloads, Internet Download Accelerator is also a good file manager because it automatically organizes files by type, letting you see just archives, music, video or executable you transferred. 

After you have installed Internet Download Accelerator on your computer system, launch it. A floating window will get appeared at bottom right side of your computer screen. You can move it to anywhere on your screen.

With this download manager IDA, you could be able to download videos too. 

So how to download videos by using IDA?
