  • MegaTools Mac will be installed using the HomeBrew. Now it’s time to download some files using Mega Links.
  • Navigate to your desired directory. Let’s say ” Downloads ” – Default directory for storing all the downloads we do on our Mac using the following on the terminal
cd Downloads
  • Once you’re in the right directory of your choice. Just execute the following command:
megadl  'Your Mega Download Link Here'
  • Paste your Mega Download Link with the decrytped key attached to the link and also “quotes” are required for this to work.

but as I mentioned there are downsides to this procedure despite being difficult when compared to the previous method.

Drawbacks of using MegaTools for Mac

  1. The difficulty level is high when compared to the previous method
  2. You can’t download files that are separated from the Decrypted key in the link. This option is still not available
  3. Most users reported that they’re facing the following error while using this procedure
