You can zip the video or ask them to right click & save to their computer.  But depending on how most people have their browsers set up, it will start playing.  Having said that, this also might work for you:  http://www.allmyfaqs.com/faq.pl?Download_a_file

Well just by using all the FP extras, I do not think that it can be done.  You can ZIP it & then create a link to it via FP.  But that seems to be the only way to do that via FP.

Yes you are..  But when you say download - I am assuming you want to them to retrieve the file from the server & place the file on their local machine.  You can simply create a link to the file but if I were to click on that link, it could not download.  It would start to play the file in my browser since I have it set up that way. If this is what you want - for someone to click a link & then the media file to play, open up FP & maybe create a folder for your media files.  And then go to My Computer, locate the media file, right click & choose copy.  And then go back into FP, right click on that folder & choose paste.  This will import the file.  And the on the page that you wish that hyperlink to be, you will create it just like any other, highlight the word(s), press CNTL-K, & then locate that media file.

You can also do this using the FrontPage Web Component from the menubar.

Here's a link from MS that goes into some detail for you:
