I want to download a file from Mega through my own download manager not Mega's download manager. I tried many times with available options in Internet Download Manager and can't get Internet Download Manger to intercept the Mega's download process. enter image description here

I doubt this would be possible without alterations to IDM itself. Mega downloads an encrypted file and decrypts it clientside, even if you could intercept the download you'd only get garbage without specific support for then decoding. – Phoshi Aug 14 '13 at 17:11
@mms911 - You can't Mega uses a client side mechanic ( Javascript ) to decrypt the file so it can be downloaded. The good news Mega has an SDK that will allow the authors of your download manager to add support for Mega's cloud storage service. – Ramhound Aug 14 '13 at 17:11
