Please give us another chance for the final release version.

Hi Mayer,

One question, the "video sniffer" associated with this release, will it be using WinPcap.exe as an external application in order to "sniff" videos?
I ask this because there is another program like this that I will not mention, but they say it uses WinPcap.exe as a sniffer, yet on installation it does not advise the user of it's installation as a separate installation, yet the software works fine without it.

I look forward to trying EagleGet soon.

I'm curious to know which program you mean : ) I use a few of these apps but I've not found one that installs WinPCap without saying so first.

Is sniffing the same as catching a stream? I'm thinking for instance of Video Download Helper in FF, or the built-in video downloader in Maxthon both of which work without WinPCap, compared to VSO which won't work without it.

EagleGet uses its own sniffer and download engine, thus it will not include WinPcap.exe.

Did someone else try EagleGet yet?

I tried this program, and ran into problems.

I use FlashGot to integrate download managers with Firefox, and it works great. EagleGet is not yet in the list of download managers that FlashGot supports. Well, that can be overlooked for the time being, as EagleGet is new, and still in beta. But, in near future, I would like to see EagleGet in that list, and compatible with FlashGot.

EagleGet installs plugins on Firefox, IE, and Chrome. On Firefox, it's visible in both add-ons, and plugins. Why in two places?

Even after the plugins were installed on Firefox, and EagleGet comes up as an option in the Firefox download dialogue box, still, when I select to download with EagleGet, and press Save, nothing happens. If I right-click on the download link, and select to download with EagleGet from the context menu, nothing happens even then.

Whereas it works fine on IE, version 10.

I noticed in Configuration of EagleGet that it sends a referrer, and has a list of them. I never noticed that in a download manager before. Why include it in EagleGet? What's the purpose?

I changed the referrer in EagleGet settings to Firefox, thinking that, that might be the issue, but I was still not able to download with EagleGet on Firefox.

Regards the interface, it looks good, and modern... but as for the download, I do not see as much details that I see with other download managers like Free Download Manager, or Orbit Downloader. Some details do appear but have to right click the download and choose Properties for that. I would like to see the details as easy as in other download managers, maybe in a separate small window for that download.

All testing done on Windows 7 32-bit.

I will say EagleGet still needs more work.

Hi Anupam,

Thanks for your interest in EagleGet.

1. Regarding to the problem in Firefox, could you please provide some URLs that could recreate it?

2. Due to the limitations of Chrome extensions (download API havent been available to them), the dedicated download manager may not be able to capture all download requests. EagleGet introduces the innovatively add-ons + plugins method to ensure the best download compatibility with almost all websites. This method has also been implemented on Firefox.

3. EagleGet values your privacy, and does not send any track data to our server. Regarding to the referrer data while clicking Configuration, could you please paste the data here? I'll check it immediately.

Regards,
Mayer

I couldn't get EagleGet to work with Firefox at all. I tried to download from different sites... but was totally unsuccessful. Using Firefox 22.0, the latest version.

I again tried the different methods for downloading with EagleGet on Firefox, that I wrote in my previous post, but was still unsuccessful. Earlier, I had installed EagleGet in virtualized environment using Toolwiz TimeFreeze. But, this time, I installed on the actual system, but with same results.

I tried downloading setups from Notepad++ site, BurnAware free site, Flash Player site.... all unsuccessful.

Does downloading from YouTube work on Firefox too, like it does on IE, by showing the Download button over the video? It does not work on Firefox.

EagleGet works successfully on IE 10 though, and integrated well with it.

I think I used the wrong term for it. I was referring to the User-Agent setting, found under Connection in Configuration of EagleGet. What's the use of that for a download manager? I never saw any other download manager using User-Agent. Have seen this setting only on browsers.

Regarding the details for downloads... I now noticed that details can be seen by clicking an arrow icon on the right side of the selected download. So, that's OK.

I am not much impressed with the interface though, it looks more like Windows 8 app. Anyways, that's a personal opinion.

EagleGet have now released a stable version .. 1.1.0.2

I tried it again on my Windows 7 laptop, and I again ran into the same problems as before, of EagleGet not working with Firefox.

The download shows up, and when selected to download with EagleGet, download does not start. Same happens with right-clicking on link, and choosing to download with EagleGet from the context menu.

FlashGot now recognizes EagleGet... but it maybe because I had set it earlier, I am not sure. But, selecting download to start with EagleGet even from FlashGot does not start the download. The EagleGet window comes up in this case, but no download is shown to start... the list remains empty.

So, again, it's disappointing.

I still cannot figure out why EagleGet needs a user-agent.

EagleGet does integrate well with Opera 15 though, and was able to work with it.

EagleGet is working fine and integrated well into Firefox, Chrome, Opera, IE and SRWare Iron for me. Just a left click on the link for CCleaner at Softpedia transferred the download to EagleGet.


Not sure what could be your problem, but you could try this: Manually adding EagleGet to Firefox

I didn't have to do this though.

Thanks for posting GJ.

Well, if it's working for you, I cannot understand why it's not working for me. I shouldn't need to add manually as far as I can see, because both add-on and plugin for Firefox gets installed for me, for EagleGet.

I will try manually, and see how it goes.

Anyways, I am doing this on a test basis, because I am just curious and want to try it out. My default download manager will remain Free Download Manager, which is working great for me. I haven't been much impressed with EagleGet.

Although, it's always good to have more choice in terms of free software to choose from.

I think am just surprised by the capability of EagleGet. Not only does it transfer the downloads from supported browsers, but it has also started to do the same on other browsers. I haven't seen any other free download managers that had this capability and which was the sole reason that I was using IDM (which supports all browsers), but EagleGet manages to do this, albeit still with some issues at present!

EagleGet automatically transfers downloads (urls' and videos!) to itself from Slimboat and Qupzilla and other browsers like Maxthon, thanks to the Universal Capture mode. I haven't tried with all of them, but it doesn't do the same with Palemoon. I wonder if it's just the webkit browsers? I've tried the same with FDM and even with the videos FDM wasn't able to sniff the downloads from incompatible browsers.

The process went smoothly for sniffing and downloading videos from Slimboat and Qupzilla, While this was absolutely great, there was a issue though, still a major one at present, Slimboat and Qupzilla crashes on downloading url's (not videos), yet the download is still transferred and continued.

I hope the author can do something about this and fix it. It might just the next best thing and truly deserves the 5star rating at Softpedia.
