How does it work?

Basically, this program is completely dependent on aria2. aria2 is a utility for downloading files that support segmented downloading. When we start downloading, this program takes the download auth token from cookies (as well as other required parameters), and pass them to aria2.

An instance of Process takes the output from aria2 and shows it on UI. You can achieve the same with aria2 without this program, but you'd have to manually take out the auth token from cookies and other parameters and feed them into aria2.
