download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

hi,

Recently i decide to install a new download managers after months i stick with EG and i think Orbit Downloader 4.1.1.19 did a very good job in terms resume and speed provided compare to EG Alpha Version 2.0.0.0.

i'm compare the time both download manager took to download (128kbps) this link using watchstop

https://dl.google.com/picasa/picasa39-setup.exe

EG took 35 minutes ++

Orbit took 26 minutes ++

the reason why EG took longer time possibly 0 kb/s freeze in the last moment of download. i want to highlight the most  is Orbit capability to resume [i mean by clicked the resume button without changing any link as for now EG having problem with edit properties but in the older vesion 1.1.8.3 EG also cant resume this link even if i change the link manually (dont confuse with refresh download address)]

video from this site http://www.animeultima.tv/watch/Baby-St … ed-online/ which i failed to resume using EG and IDM


and if possible i would like to suggest EG consider the feature of an orbit such as Grab++ to download media

i think by having this feature EG can enhance its ability to download media/video instead only depend on EG download panel alone

summary:

i hope EG could take a look at Orbit download feature such as Grab++ and resume capability seriously

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

Thanks, eastern.  Have you forgotten that 2.0 Alpha is a test release?  It does not permit more than 8 connections no matter what the user specifies.  As I have posted many time, EG keeps my ISP at full speed, so not possible for any DL Manager to go faster.  Please wait till the bugs are worked out of version 2 to do your comparison testing. Enjoy, John.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

hi Mister J,

thanks for your reply. Yes, i know EG 2.0 is alpha version without any doubt. The reason i compare EG 2.0 and Orbit not to disgrace EG reputation but to give feedback about how EG should consider its competitors performance.

If somehow you read my post until the end the matters i want to highlight is Orbit ability in terms of having feature such as Grab++ & resume capability superior (at least to me) than EG which older version of EG 1.1.8.3 failed to do so.

Yes, i know its must annoying to keep telling people EG working at full ISP but please consider others who could not have ISP as yours to begin with.

Thanks for your reply. Thinks Positive.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

Orbit download manager is not only just adware, but malware too. The software contains additional code for performing DDOS Attacks.

Read here for more details: http://www.welivesecurity.com/2013/08/2 … ding-tool/

Up until a few days back, in Google search results, their homesite was given "This site has been compromised". Most software sites like Softpedia, CNET, Softonic has also removed the product from their database, deleting download links from their pages.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

hi jackuars,

i m already aware about this software reputation among user who find a lot of adware and junk toolbar (i m also one of the user got infected by those virus a year ago) but right now Orbit a bit different with a release new build as those adware and virus not there (untick those toolbar)

however the main point i want to highlight is Orbit feature such as Grab++ and resume ability (right now EG resume capability more superior with new release of EG alpha recently but still limited to only certain scenario)

Thanks for your comment.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

I've no problem with adware softwares, but including malware codes is what I'm wary about. Because of that I've seen the company's reputation has gone down the drain. I'll better be safe than sorry, until Orbit is featured back on popular download sites like Softpedia

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

yes , i agree its better safe than sorry (i know how hard it is to remove those junks from OS) however the new version in my opinion it is safe (i m currently using 4 AV to help me detect any threat-MSE,Malywarebytes,Adwcleaner (portable) and Grindsoft Trojan Killer)

P/S: people who want to use Orbit please be aware about its risk such as download the software in the official website and look at user feedback in the forum and scan your download file first and dont blame me if something happened. TRY this software at your own risk.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

VirusTotal gives 9/52 detections for me. VirusTotal tests files with 52 different antiviruses.....Not really safe, may be becoz of OpenCandy..

Here's a scan result: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/4e62 … /analysis/

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

okay,

nothing wrong with your opinion but for me i m not trust those scan too easily based on my experience before . Its just like you said better safe than sorry so its all up to you to make the choice.

i  suggest developers to think seriously regarding Orbit Grab++ to be feature in EG if it is relevant

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

I've used Grab++ before, but what's it's advantage compared to EagleGet's built-in media downloading technology?

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

hi Jackuars,

EagleGet's built-in media downloading technology (download panel) not perfect to begin with. The reason i suggest Grab++ to be feature in EG simply to completed EG ability detect video successfully.If possible why cant EG  integrate 2 different detectors of video in one download manager (media grabber + download panel)?

i found another download manager which using similar feature such as orbit

in this download manager this feature known as media grabber and its really helpful to detect video EG and IDM failed to track.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

well did you use the latest version release back in february?

i m using firefox + windows 7 premium

i think XDM did a good job. XDM proven can download video from this site

-http://www.animeultima.tv/genres/watch-action-animes/
-yourupload
-http://en.savefrom.net/

and a few site where EG failed to detect and vice versa

If somehow EG could rebuild this feature & implement in next version it will be awesome!

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

I tested it a few days ago, and it didn't work on Chrome for me (video downloads). Also it refuses to uninstall and even asks you reboot, and upon rebooting, it's still present there. Moreover it messed up my internet connection by setting to system proxy after uninstallation and I had to manually set to Automatic detect via LAN settings. Upon re-installation today, it doesn't add extensions to Firefox or Chrome even after setting the browser integration.

XDM also has refresh link option like EagleGet which was good.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

hmm...thanks for your feedback.Perhaps it has problem with chrome ( i personally prefer firefox after chrome mess up with my laptop 4 years ago)

i think i will keep XDM as 3rd download manager for a while. i think if i need to uninstall XDM i have the right application to do the job without suffer the same problem as you mentioned.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

What's your second choice?

Have you tried Internet Download Accelerator Free..It's quite advanced like FDM, probably more.....Except for the ads in download window..

I'm not sure what features are extra in pro version. But I was able to use most features.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

hi Jackuars,

i will chose FlareGet - http://flareget.com/download. A year ago i prefer FlareGet and EagleGet due to both of DM possess a lot of unique feature (right now EG no 1).Recently i suggest to FlareGet developers to add advanced browser integration but he refuse to do so. He want to avoid user illegally download video from unauthorized site which doesnt allow video to be download. I cant blame him because he have his own reason.

The most unique feature in FlareGet is you can add or remove segment without interrupting downloads besides  its also  possess good resume ability

personally Flareget for windows at risk as we speak right now if no future improvement in FlareGet.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

The problem with FlareGet is that you get only 2 segments/connections to download above files >25MB. So adding segments is not that big a deal, coz max is 2. To get additional features you need to get the Pro version.

Video downloads similarly doesn't work great on Chrome. I'm not sure if am the only one.

But this one is a deal breaker on Linux  and it works well on my Linux Mint 16. The interface is appealing, and everything else is quite fine.

Re: download managers comparison:Orbit vs EG 2.0

yes you only got 2 connections (except you buy premium) but before this developers of Flareget did invite me to test new build of Flareget for windows last year and i manage to test for a few months FlareGet premium  but when the new version release recently i have no access anymore.

The main problem of FlareGet is its cant detect file type properly thus download them as html or blank file. After some testing FlareGet (free version) did well with recent version but as i told you developers of FlareGet refuse to add advance browser integration to helping detect the video much better.Perhaps he will change his mind near in the future to ensure FlareGet for windows development never stop.

anyways i m prefer EG much better because Developers always listen to our problem and keep release better version of EG 2 or 3 times a month and efficient forum management (leads by moderator Mister J). Hopefully EG will out alpha version in the future.
