I'm trying to allow users to download a video from our site but am running into issues with IE and Firefox. When I simply link to the .mov file, I am unable to get the "Save File As" popup to appear and the video simply starts running in the browser. I would like to avoid forcing the user to right click on the link. I've also tried passing the action=save variable but that no longer works. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I appreciate both your help on this. Unfortunately, I know nothing about PHP -- that would have been a good option. The zip does do the trick -- good thinking! However, if anyone else has a method that doesn't involved having to unzip the file, I'd appreciate your thoughts as well.
