The best app for downloading from premium file storage or free sites even does 1080P youtube via ffmpeg. I use with flashgot. Sometimes it is quicker to use the DTA firefox plugin however .

Java can be slow.

JDownloader is very good app, but it has several problems : 1) Very big memory footprint - for me its 80-120 Mb, when FreeRapid Downloader, also Java, uses only 20Mb
2) No Guiless (daemon) support. Id like to install Jdownloader on guiless linux server to download files overnight, but can't. Pitiful

about JDownloader Jun 2011

If one wants to use it with Mac OS Tiger and Java 1.5 (tiger does not officially support Java 1.6 which the latest jDownloader require, eventhough a developer preview has been released) the easiset way is start with an older version of jDownloader (like 0.5xx) and update it with the internal updater.

you can get an old version of jDownloader 0.5xx here:
