Are you tired of searching endlessly for the files you want to download? Are you sick of waiting at the direct download sites for the files to start downloading? Have you ever spent hours downloading a video, only to find that its quality was rather poor, or that it was a fake? Have you ever wanted to be able to download videos from sites like YouTube, Megavideo or similar ones, instead of having to watch them with their embedded Flash players? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, then read on.

Today we’ll talk about some pretty cool programs designed for making the find-and-download process as quick and painless as possible. Most of the programs we’ll mention are multiplatform, meaning that you’ll be able to use them not only on Linux but also on Mac OS X, Windows and may be other platforms too.

This article is organized in four sections:

  • Direct downloads from one-click hosting servers
  • Peer-to-peer file sharing using BitTorrent
  • Downloading streaming contents
  • Broadcatching (a brief introduction, with a full article on the subject coming soon)
