Imeem is a popular online site which hosts music mp3 and videos just like youtube and megavideo. Launched in October 2004, Imeem has seen colossal growth and according to imeem executives, the site averages 25 million visitors per month and 65000 new visitors every day. Imeem has one of the most vast collections of music in their database making it a haven for music lovers. There is also a great amount of video content available as well. You can listen to all songs that are on their website for free but you are not able to download any music mp3 or video files whatsoever. I will be giving you a heads up on a couple of ways that will enable you to download imeem music mp3 and video files for free.
First Method to Download Imeem Music MP3
Note: This first method only works for downloading imeem music. You cannot download video files using this method. This method only works with Mozilla Firefox.
1. Go to File2HD.com
2. Input the URL of the song you want to download. For example:
3. Check the agreement box and hit the “Get Files” button.
4. Wait for the website to fetch the download link. You will see one media file listed on the page. I have attached an image so you can see how it is listed.
5. As instructed, right click on the url and choose the “Save Link As…” option. Wait a while for the download to begin. It may begin within a few seconds or it may take up to a couple of minutes.
Second Method to Download Imeem Video and Music Files
This is an unreliable method to download imeem video and music files. You will be required to use Internet Explorer and you will be locating the video file among your temporary internet files. You can use this method to download both imeem music and video files although I would highly recommend you to use the first method to download Imeem Music.
1. Go to the imeem video page and let it load to 100%.
2. Navigate to C:Documents and Settings*USERNAME*Local SettingsTemporary Internet Files. This may be different then your temporary file folder so just open the folder by opening Internet Explorer and going to “Tools -> Internet Options -> Settings -> View Files”.
3. You will now locate the temporary file for your video. Sort the folder into descending order by size. Your desired file will have a huge filename and will most likely be in “.gif” extension. It will have one of the largest size and the “Internet Address” column will have a link containing the phrase “imeem”. Locate your file and copy it somewhere else. Rename the extension to “.flv”.
Here is a a screenshot of one such file(click for full-size view).
5. You will need a FLV player to play the file. VLC Media Player is also able to play FLV files. To convert the file into another format like AVI, you will need a converter. SUPER is a free converter which you can use.
Third Method to Download Imeem Music or Video
This method involves Internet Download Manager(IDM). It is a world class software and can be helpful to do many tasks easily. Newer versions of IDM enable you to download any streaming content and a button is shown above the video or audio player. IDM has a 30 day fully functioning trial version so you can use it for free for 30 days. You can use this method on either Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.
1. Go to the IDM download page and start downloading IDM.
2. Install IDM to your computer and be sure to have it integrated into your browsers.
3. Open up any video or music at Imeem.
4. Let the Video or Audio load to 100%. This is very important!
5. Once it is loaded 100%, you can click the “Download this Video” button for IDM, specify your desired location to save the file, and your video will be saved there instantly. If you see more then one file when you click “Download this video”, just try each one in turn and bear in mind that only one of those files will work, the other will give an error.
You can use SUPER(free program) to convert any audio FLV file to MP3. You can also convert it to any other format you want, such as iPod compatible, mp4, .3gp, etc. You can also convert your downloaded video file to several different video formats such as avi, wav, etc.
So that’s a solid list of three ways for you to download imeem music and video files. If you have any trouble, just leave a comment below and I will help you out!Google+
