Problem using showUI in

I wish to us to download files from the internet because it has a built in UI that shows progress and also has a [Cancel] button.

I am not looking for an alternative method to download as I have otherways already.  I'm simply looking to see if the following attached code can be made to work... Am I doing something wrong?

It flashes the UI and saves a zero byte file."","C:\Users\Owner\Documents\FLV_Downloads\dog.flv","","",true,180000,true)

Open in new window

hoping you are not on a wireless network. check this out:
try making the showui as false, if it works. try lessening the timeout as well. :-)

Hi Sameer,
None of the suggestions seems to make a difference.  I suspect it is simply a problem with the way the file is served up in this case..

I am goiing to resort to generating my own UI.
Hi Tim,
I think youtube might have implemented some sort of security so that its not easy to download the file.
Thanks for the points.
