    I think that XDM is a very good alternative to IDM because it allows you to download videos on many sites other than YouTube (ENI platform, LinkedIn for example) like IDM does. On the other hand, IDM sometimes preserves the file name while XDM does not, which is annoying if you download a series of videos because you have to rename everything by hand. Translation FR OK.
