Download a QuickTime movie

A friend has asked me to throw up a web page where users can simply click on an image and the appropriate QuickTime file will download to their computer. I am sure this is very simple and I’ve tried all sorts of things but I can’t get it to work. Does anybody know the right way to do this? I am using Freeway Pro 5.1.2.

Could you clarify what you need here? Do you want the link to force a download to their computer, and override whatever preference their browser may have (display in the browser window, launch a helper application)?

If so, search this list[1] for the words “force download”. You’ll find a bunch of messages (many from me) with instructions and thinking around that idea.

If not, could you explain what you’re after?

Thanks,

Walter

Its easy to provide a straight link that opens a QuickTime movie in another page. The problem is that only users with QuickTime Pro could then download it to their computer, so I wanted a quick and easy solution for users to simply click on an image or link to download the video automatically without having to search for “save link as” or similar.

I’ll have a search now for force download.

Thanks

Put the movie in a .zip file, download the .zip file
