How to Download Free Movies Fast

Are you looking for software for download free movies quickly but don't you have any desire to face complicated configurations or wait for the exhausting download queues to which eMule and - in a much more limited way - mIRC have accustomed you? Maybe I can give you a hand.

Below is a list of software for Windows, macOS and Linux that allow you to download movies from the Internet quite easily and quickly; definitely faster than the good old eMule. There are some that also require the sharing of files being downloaded (they are therefore P2P programs) while others allow you to download data without sharing it with other people.

I'll explain immediately how to download, install and use them. But be careful: illegally withdrawing from the Internet and sharing copyrighted content without permission is a crime. All the information you find below are to be considered for illustrative purposes only, it is absolutely not my intention to encourage piracy and therefore I do not take any responsibility for the use you can make of it.


Many films, including the works of independent video makers, are hosted on so-called cyberlocker. Have you ever heard of it? I bet yes. Cyberlockers are nothing more than file hosting services, such as Mega, RapidGator and Cloudzilla, which allow you to easily share any type of file online and ensure a generally high download speed (without forcing you to share what you download as instead happens on P2P networks).

Cyberlockers are almost all free basic but in their free plans they have numerous limitations, such as the inability to download multiple files simultaneously, to resume interrupted downloads and to take full advantage of the bandwidth available for downloading data. Furthermore, the file download process is made particularly tedious by the appearance of countdowns and verification codes (captcha) which are not present for users who subscribe to pay subscriptions.

To remedy, at least partially, these annoyances you can contact JDownloader. It is a free and open source download manager compatible with Windows, macOS and Linux that allows you to download from all major hosting services avoiding the user having to personally follow the countdowns and greatly simplifying the verification codes to type. It also supports premium accounts (in order to bypass all the restrictions that free users have, as long as you have an active pay subscription) and manages to "capture" all the multimedia files present in the Web pages. Moreover, unlike many P2P software, does not require special router configurations to download at maximum speed.

To download JDownloader on your computer, connect to its official website and first click on windows flag and then on the rumors Download 32/64Bit Webinstaller (Rar-Archive RECOMMENDED)Click to start the Download Download via browser. The program is downloaded via MEGA, a service specifically optimized for Google Chrome. If the download fails, try this browser.

Once the download is complete, open the package Install JDownloader.rar that you just downloaded on your PC (if you don't know how to open RAR files, read my tutorial dedicated to the subject) and extract the contents to any folder. Then start the executable Install JDownloader.exe, click on the button Yes and wait for all the components necessary to install JDownloader to be downloaded from the Internet. It will take a few moments. Next, click on the item Advanced Installation, presses the buttons in sequence NextAcceptSkip all e Finish and the installation of JDownloader will be completed.

Do you use a Mac? No problem. Connect to the JDownloader website and start downloading the program by clicking on the logo first Apple and then on the voice Download Installer Mac OS X Version 10.7 or higher which appears below.

Once the download is complete, open the package dmg that contains the program, starts the executable JDownloader Installer contained within it and wait a few moments for all the components necessary to install JDownloader to be downloaded from the Internet. When the download is complete, press the buttons in sequence OKNextSkip e Finish and the software installation will be completed quickly.

At this point, start JDownloader and copy the addresses of the files you intend to download from Mega, RapidGator or other hosting services. Wait a few moments for the program to "capture" them and start downloading them by clicking on the tab first Capture Links and then on the button play located at the top left. When it is time to enter the captcha codes, the software will notify you with a sound and with the appearance, on the screen, of a window in which to type the code.

I point out that JDownloader also supports debrid services, those Internet sites that at the price of a single subscription allow you to download files, without speed or number limits, from numerous cyberlockers. To add a premium account or a debrid account to JDownloader, go to the tab Settings program, select the item Account management from the left sidebar and presses the button Add.


In the peer to peer environment, the best way to download free movies quicklyremains the use of the BitTorrent network that manages to guarantee very high download speeds (provided that everything is configured properly and you use Torrent files with many active sources).

There are many programs to download files from the BitTorrent network, now I recommend several. But first let me say that I strongly suggest you combine them with use one VPN, that is, a virtual private network for use the Internet anonymously and without being tracked, thus also bypassing regional blocks, censorships and having the ability to access foreign catalogs of streaming services. Among the available VPN solutions, I would like to point out NordVPN (which I told you about in depth here) and Surfshark which have low prices, work on PC / Mac, smartphones, tablets and many other devices and take advantage of many servers scattered all over the world.


qBitTorrent is a free and open source Torrent client born as an alternative to uTorrent. It is compatible with Windows, macOS and Linux. It includes all the most important functions of uTorrent and other well known clients, but unlike the latter, it does not have any advertising banners and does not include additional software in the installation package. It also has a convenient search engine that allows you to find any type of file on the BitTorrent network without opening the browser.

To download qBitTorrent on your computer, connected to the official website of the program and click on the item first qBittorrent vx.x installer and PGP signature which is next to the Windows logo and then on that Download qBittorrent Windows present on the page that opens. Once the download is complete, launch the file qbittorrent_xx_setup.exe click her cousin Yes and then OK e forward. Then put the check mark next to the item I accept the license conditions and click on first forward twice in a row and then on Install e end to conclude the setup.

Do you use a Mac? In this case, to download qBitTorrent on your computer you need to connect to the program's website and first click on the item qBittorrent vxx next to the Apple logo and then on the link Download qBittorrent Mac OS Xpresent on the page that opens. Once the download is complete, open the package dmgyou downloaded from the qBitTorrent website and drag the program icon to the folder Applications say macOS.

Once qBitTorrent has started, to use the search function included in the software, click on the menu View and select the item Search engine from the latter. If you use Windows you will be asked to install Python, a free component without which the search function cannot be used: accept by clicking on the button Yes, and wait a few moments for the search tab to appear in the qBitTorrent main window.


uTorrent is the world's most used Torrent client on Windows and one of the most popular for macOS. It is a fast program, easy to use and equipped with an automatic configuration function that optimally adjusts the connection parameters to speed up downloads as much as possible. Unfortunately, however, in the free version it includes a little too much promotional content (read advertising banners and additional, optional software, included in the installation package).

If you want to try it, connect to its official website and click on the button Download uTorrent for Windows for two consecutive times. Then start the file uTorrent.exe click her cousin OK and then Yesforward twice in a row, Accept e forward for two more times. Therefore remove the check mark from the item Yes, I’d love to check out this download and click in sequence on forward Ends to complete the setup in a "clean" way (ie without installing promotional content). If you are offered additional promotional software, always refuse them by clicking on Skip Offer I do not agree.

If you use a Mac, you can download uTorrent on your computer simply by connecting to the program's website and clicking on the button Free download for Mac. Once the download is complete, open the package dmg you just downloaded on your Mac and launch the executable uTorrent contained within it. In the window that opens, click in sequence on apriContinue Decline (to refuse the installation of additional promotional software), wait for the uTorrent installation to finish and press the button Done to finish the setup.


Transmission is another very light and reliable BitTorrent client. It is compatible with all major operating systems but I recommend it especially if you use a Mac. To download it to your computer, connect to its official website and first click on the item Download now and then Transmission-x.xx.dmg. When the download is complete, open the dmg package that contains Transmission, drag the software icon to the folder Applications macOS and start downloading all the Torrent files you want!

How to Use Torrent Clients

Programs to download files from the BitTorrent network need to be configured appropriately to perform at their best, and they also need the router not to obstruct their communications with the outside. To find out how to speed up Torrent, read the guide I wrote on the subject.

As for the Torrent sites to use to find the movies, here are some useful links that I hope will help you find what you need.

  • TorrentSeeker - a search engine that allows you to find any type of file (so not just movies) on all major websites that index Torrent files.
  • - allows you to access many films that are no longer protected by copyright (therefore in the public domain) to be downloaded via the Torrent network. There are not many works in Italian while those in English abound (including historical films such as "The night of the living dead").

Downloading data from the BitTorrent network can be done via small files with the extension .torrent, which contain the "coordinates" to download the files, or via magnet link, links - usually marked with a red magnet icon - which when clicked in the browser automatically start downloading files from the BitTorrent network. I advise you to use the latter, as even if they are a little slower to "fuel", they ensure a greater level of privacy and, potentially, a longer duration of shared files.

IRC Network

As mentioned at the beginning of the post, downloading movies from the IRC network can involve some small wait, but it is just a matter of patience a little before a download begins. Once started, the download travels at fairly high speeds and has nothing to envy to the performance of cyberlockers or the BitTorrent network. This is the reason why I now want to talk to you about XdccDownloader, a small free software for Windows, macOS and Linux that allows you to find and download any type of file on Italian IRC channels.

To download XdccDownloader on your computer, connect to the program's website and click on arrow with your operating system logo (e.g. the Windows flag or the macOS apple) at the bottom of the page. Once the download is complete, open the package zip which contains XdccDownloader and extract the software to any folder. If you are using a Mac, you need to extract the program to the folder Applications say macOS.

When the operation is complete, start the XdccDownloader executable, search for the movie to download (using the appropriate bar at the top) and start the download by double clicking on one of the search results.

TV Recordings

Italian TV broadcasters broadcast many interesting films: do you know that you can download them for free from the Internet? The credit goes to Vcast, an online "video recorder" that allows you to record all free-to-air channels of digital terrestrial (except Mediaset) by saving the videos on services such as OneDrive and Google Drive. I told you about it in more detail in my tutorial on how to record from TV.

Film in Streaming

Now there are many sites that allow you to watch movies in streaming, in Italian and completely free. Unfortunately they do not always offer a function for downloading the works (if not temporarily, and almost always only on portable devices) but in the context of 100% legal services it is practically impossible to find better.

To find out which are the best sites to watch streaming movies currently available on “piazza”, read my post on the subject. I assure you that you will find a lot of interesting content to enjoy at no cost in a completely legal way. In addition, there are many sites that allow you to watch TV in streaming, you can take the opportunity to watch the films that broadcast daily.
