  1. I can’t get the BitTorrent download to work:

    “Failed to receive the valid response from the tracker”

    I’ve tried several torrent sites including the Ubuntu site posted above (I did try their Tribe 5 download too).

    After it’s sent the request to the tracker it gives up after just a few seconds.

    Otherwise, I’ve been using FDM for over a year now and love it. I just found v2.5 and upgraded today.

    Yes. FDM lets you download files / web sites from any remote server via HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and Bittorrent.

  3. hi,

    could you guys provide the software in .zip file ? as in, without the installer. it would make it easier to carry the software on the usb pen disk, which i imagine alot of people would want.

    by the way, i’m only making this sugestion because free download manager is the only download manager worth using.

    congrats you guys, your software rules!

  4. ahmm, apparently it’s possible to have it portable

    File > Create Portable version.

    i’m happy. FDM RULES!

    You can download files using Bittorrent protocol in any of the following ways:

    · If FDM is set to be associated with .torrent files (the corresponding box in the Bittorrent options dialog is checked), each time you open a .torrent file (e.g. by double clicking it), FDM will open up and prompt you to create a torrent.

    · Simply download a .torrent file from the internet. FDM will automatically create a torrent.

  6. I can’t get the BitTorrent download to work:

    “Failed to receive the valid response from the tracker” Everytime.

    Is seeding a must?

  9. its funny i done download movie file from torrent is about 735mb
    but when i open the file i only earth shinning picture.. and the duration only 14 seconds

    whats going on?

  10. When you download a torrent file, the torrent is automatically being processed by FDM – after the torrent has been completely downloaded by FDM, how do you stream the torrent file as a direct movie file?
