Jdownloader is one of the many apps you get with your evoseedbox. It is growing in popularity right now and with that, many people and users are getting curious about the application and how to use it.

In the article, we will address the same and then go on to a full guide on how to use Jdownloader with your evoseedbox.

What is Jdownloader? Jdownloader is an open-source application developed to manage the downloads of files and make the whole process easy and fast.

With a seedbox, you can use it in 2 different ways:

  1. Using JDownloader to download files from your seedbox to your device. For this, you will need to install the Jdownloader app on your device. You can get it from here.
  2. Use JDownloader to download files on your seedbox from other servers.

How to use Jdownloader? The first step is to install the application on your device. If you are downloading files on your seedbox then go to your evoseedbox dashboard and install the Jdownloader application.

We are taking the case of downloading files from a remote server to your seedbox. The principles to download files using JDownloader to your device are going to be the same.

You will need an http link to the file you want to download. In this case, I am using another seedbox, so with Evoseedbox’s HTTP web access, we can get links easily.

Once you identify the file you want to download, right-click and select copy the link address option.
