Download: uGet 2.2.0 or uGet for Android 1.4.8

 

After almost a year of development, we are excited to announce the immediate availability of the latest stable version of uGet, version 2.2.0 and the latest version of uGet for Android, version 1.4.8. These releases include a LOT of improvements such as  bug fixes, maintenance improvements and many highly requested features like support for Downloading from YouTube.

 

New Notable Features:

  • Support for downloading from YouTube*
  • Support for downloading from MEGA
  • Batch Downloading up to 3 Wildcard Ranges
  • Better support for Wayland
  • New Browser Extension* (thanks to new team member, Gobinath) -> Get Extension

YouTube Note: uGet respects the YouTube Policies so depending on the individual settings of a video it may not be possible to download video from YouTube. The vast majority of videos will be available for use in uGet. The reason this was done instead of using something youtube-dl is because this method allows uGet for Android to also download YouTube videos as well as not have to worry about the ever changing APIs of YouTube that consistently break alternative methods of downloading.

 

Browser Extension: the new extension is compatible with Firefox, Chromium, Google Chrome, Opera, and Vivaldi. It is possible other browsers may be supported in the future. The extension was originally created as a 3rd Party Extension for Chrome so it has the project name "uGet Chrome Wrapper". Now that Gobinath, the developer of the extension, has joined the team and made it compatible with other browsers, the extension will be renamed in the near future to better reflect the functionality.

Shameless Donation Request:

We appreciate all of our users and supporters but uGet is a project that consists of only 2 people. If you'd like to help us further, it's not necesssary, with a monetary donation we would very much appreciate it. We are working to improve many aspects of uGet but we are only able to work on it in our free time, with your donations we can devote more time to uGet without stressing over those evil things called "bills". Regardless if you donate or not, we do appreciate all of our users and we are excited to continue improving uGet for everyone.
