forcing download of files (e.g. mp3)
hi all, im goin crazy tryin to figure something out...
i have a few questions about basically the same thing.
I wanna be able to allow a download of a file, but this file is an mp3, so whatever method i try and do to have the file downloaded, instead of coming up with a SAVE AS dialog, it juz opens it with the associated MIME app - which is sometimes cool, but not in this case!
obviously i dont wanna change anything on my pc to make it work, cos i want it to work on all computers!!!
I want to be able to do it in two ways:
1. actionscript: I use geturl("file://[url of file]") and it juz opens in wmplayer instead of opening the SAVE AS dialog.
2. I would also like to be able to do it from an html page WITHIN flash. I have a html enabled textbox, and i load the contents of it dynamically. On that i want DOWNLOAD links to mp3s, obviously when i use < A HREF="mp3filename.mp3">mp3filename it does the same thing,
so what do i do!?!
