Download on low speed - example, if your internet connection is weak, you can continue your internet browsing. or watch TV (reception via internet)
Download with reconnections - in some cases, loading starts at a high speed, but then drops significantly. AntDM can force to periodically reconnect to the server at the time of data reception. In some cases, this allows you to stimulate the download speed until the file is fully downloaded.
Download by one thread reconnections - the same, but downloading will be done in a single thread.
If you want to download the file immediately, click Download, if you want to download later, click Download later. In the latter case, you must start the download manually.
"Download Later" - adds the download to the "Main download queue". You can create any number of queues and use them as you wish. Launching downloads in the queue occurs manually or using the scheduler. By default, queue support is disabled and you will not see this button. To enable queue support, see Queues.
Tip: you can avoid rise up this window in your browsers. You should "CTRL"(by default)  key at the moment of downloading file. See Browser Integration.
Note: in the case of Download Later, do not forget that video services tend to have links with a limited life time. After this time, the links become unavailable. Most likely when you type such a link, you will receive an HTTP403 or HTTP404 error.
