How can I resume a download I paused?

Shashidhar Medi December 20, 2012

I was downloading a video file which is about 874MB. I stopped it in the middle, so I want to start re-downloading where it stopped. What software lets me do that?

    A lot of software can do it. I personally use Internet Download Manager (IDM), but if you want freeware there are Flashgot, Chrysanth Download Manager, Orbit Downloader, etc.

    some websites doesn't support resume function so you should consider a good download manager that supports resume function and the websites that you are downloading the video from and check if it supports resume .
