    m trying to download a direct file via IDM.
    m using chrome. copying the file link location and pasting the link via ADD URL on IDM.
    what this does is, it shows up a html file to download and the link changes as require login link instead of the link i copied.
    i was able to download like this before they updated their website. but after their update m unable to download via idm.

    the downloads works fine if i click to download from the browser.

    example
    COPIED LINK
    Code:
    http://*****.***/media/download/542830c2b440191d62982e24/54283221b440191d62983a05
    IDM CONVERTS THE LINK TO
    Code:
    http://*****.***/login?redirect=/media/download/542830c2b440191d62982e24/54283221b440191d62983a05

    Obviously the login cookie is NOT SENT with IDM's request for the file. What browser are you using? what platform are you on? Have you tried to ask IDM to download using 1 connection [Options -> Connection tab]? Maybe it's permission on that site to use multiple connections and that's why you're being redire
