LookMovie delivers movies in HTTP Live Streaming (a.k.a. HLS) protocol that invalidates nearly all online LookMovie downloaders.

Actually, both Internet Download Manager (IDM) and its free alternative Neat Download Manager are also capable of LookMovie downloads, however, they can only download videos in .ts format so that you have to transcode TS to MP4 or other common format using some free video converters. To make up for this deficiency, I recommend Xtreme Download Manager, another free open-source program that comes with a built-in video converter to downloaded LookMovie videos to MP4 directly.
Step 2. Run it and click "Tools" on the top menu bar, then select "Browser Monitoring".
Step 3. Add the browser add-on (XDM Browser Monitor) to your frequently-used browser for monitoring the movies from LookMovie.

Step 5. In the drop-down list of "Convert to" section, you can select MP4 or any other option as you wish. Lastly, hit "DOWNLOAD NOW" button to download LookMovie videos to MP4 directly.

Without doubt, LookMovie is a paradise where provides tons of movies and TV shows for free streaming online. As you know, when it gains a high reputation, trouble comes along with it. There are various fake websites, imitators and copycats springing up over the Internet. Actually, the Official Domain is LookMovie.ag, and now it redirects to LookMovie.io. All of other sites with different names and domains are fake.
It's a commonplace topic concerning whether LookMovie is safe or not. The website itself is safe but beware not to trust any AD which may contain malicious keyloggers, browser hijackers and more sneaky stuff. To provide and maintain the free streaming experience, LookMovie has to embed some ADs to offset high server’s bandwidth costs. So you're advised to install some AD blocking programs like AdBlock, Adblock Plus, uBlock origin, etc. to stop pop-up ADs and keep safe.
