Original forum thread at
"I want my users to be able to download whatever
documents I put on my Gallery ; they can do so with
pictures and sounds, as every browser out there allows
the download of this type of resources. However, we
have absolutely no control over what browser plugin is
used by the client to view inline movies, hence we
cannot guarantee that he/she will be able to download,
or even visualize the movie.
I have users who cannot (or don't know how, or don't
want to) install a plugin. Since my gallery is setup
with ffmpeg for inline viewing, all they see is a
gallery page with nothing inside (sometimes with a
warning from the browser that it can't display some
parts of the page). And for people who can view the
movie, they often cannot download it (Quicktime's
default behavior prohibits saving streamed files). So,
I would like to have a way to download the movie, no
matter which setup is used."
So basically, the request is to have the "download
movie" link appear even if the movie is already
embedded in the page.
