IDM stands for “Internet Downloader Manager” which is the fastest download manager to download large/small files & videos from online sources (Sites/Platforms) to your computer but it is freemium software which you can use for free for 30 days & after that, you’ll need to buy it.
There’re many things that we should need to configure IDM to download videos & much more In Chrome to our Computers/PCs.
So follow these simple steps:
How To Fix: IDM Download bar Is Not Showing Over videos?
When you download the IDM from their official site, the extension is automatically added to the chrome extension panel but if the download bar is not showing over youtube videos, dailymotion videos, tune.pk or on other video sharing platform then it means that the .crx file is not installed on your chrome extension.
To install the .crx chrome extension, follow these steps.
Go to the Local Disk C:> Program Files>Internet Download Manager folder & there you’ll see the IDMGCExt.crx. (Remember the directory will be different if you’re using any other windows)
So find that .crx file & if you don’t have that on your computer then download it from here: click here
Now go to the chrome extensions.
Hold & Drag that .crx file to the chrome extensions & install the file over there. Once the file is installed, you’ll be seeing this icon on your chrome browser.
Now, whenever you go to any videos sharing platforms such as Youtube, Dailymotion, Tune.pk or Vimeo, you’ll be seeing the downloading bar over each video which you can use to download those videos to your Computer/Pc for free.
If You’ve Already Installed The .CRX extension & Still IDM Is Not Downloading Videos Then Follow These Steps
The main reason of IDM that doesn’t allow you to download anything from online is not integrating of the extension. However, if you’ve already installed it on your chrome browser then you need to check your IDM setting that whether it’s correct or not.
