Downloading MPEG Files

  budden 22:58 19 Jun 2003

When attempting to download trailers, music vids etc in MPEG format I often am unable to download the entire file. It seems a random process, sometimes I'll get the full file, other times I'll get a few seconds!! Any ideas why???

How are you doing this? Sometimes sites use "Referrer" information to see if you are downloading the file or streaming it. If you are downloading then it cuts you off.

At least that was an explanation given to me!!!!

As far as I'm aware there progressive download files (at least I think thats what they are from the help description!) I'm using Save Target As, but when I just try playing them they just seem to hang up after a second or two.
