  • aria2

    aria2 is a lightweight multi-protocol & multi-source, cross platform download utility operated in command-line. It supports HTTP/HTTPS, FTP, SFTP, BitTorrent and Metalink.

    I use Aria2 as external downloader to download audio and video using yt-dlp ..... the active fork of youtube-dl. Aria2 enables much faster downloads , but has received very sparse code contribution since 2019. (link)
