Hi! I want to set up a video file at my website for download. The kind of thing that, if I give someone a web address, it starts automatically downloading when they click the link.

I've been able to do this with pdf files. Like, www.mydomain.mydocument.pdf. The document automatically downloads; it's great.

But when I add upload a QuickTime file to my website and type in the URL, the file loads in a QuickTime plugin page. If a user didn't have quicktime pro, I don't think they could save as source. I tried it on the PC upstairs. It loads and plays fine, but there's no way she could save it.

How do I set this up so that the document itself starts downloading, even though it's a movie or song, like another document would?

Thanks so much for any help.
QUOTE Thanks
