I have this streaming video that works awesome but the customer also wants a link that will allow the user to download the video to view in their default player. I thought I could simply create a link to a video file where the user will be prompted to open or save the file but it looks like I was wrong. What I have, after a long wait, just opens up a blank page. I've even tried it with an .mpg instead of .mov with the same result. I've even attempted to acess it directly by http://www.site.com/video/movie_hinted.mov but it still just opens up a blank white page. What am I doing wrong? How can I make this work? Here's what I have so far.
