Hi all, Please could you help me...I am a PC user and I use Mipony, which I use for downloading free videos. At present I just copy the links on the website, Mipony does the rest, it downloads all say 14 parts, then it automatically extracts it by automatically inserting the password. [which I tell it] Is there a Mac program, which I could pay for which does ALL this, or will I be forced to stay with a P.C? I want to move to Mac as there is no registry, so will not slow down over time with bloat in registry.
Please tell me there is a program like Mipony, I know I MAY be able to run it through WINE??? But prob won't work I guess?? I know you have IDM, but they don't extract the zip files automatically once downloaded. MANY THANKS TO ALL !!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU !!
Kev

Not sure about Mipony, but personally I have been able to find mac alternatives for all the Windows programs that I used before I switched to mac.
If not you could always always run Windows on your mac using Bootcamp or in emulation with Parallels, VMWare or VirtualBox

This sounds a lot like you are wanting a program to pirate videos, since I cannot think of any legal videos that come as multi-part files that need to be extracted with a password etc.

So, if that's your aim, stay with the PC.

Mipony - Download manager

This is the app he is talking about. Chas brought out it's probably used for pirated Videos so I figured I would post the URL so people can decide.

It's not the app itself Dennis, that's OK. But take a close look at the web sites it works best with. All are file sharing sites which means that chas is likely correct in his assumption.

That was why I posted that. it's clear what it's meant to be used with. That app itself just like a torrent client is not bad. Just what people use it for.
