Adding video "download" link


I have my own app which is powered through a CMS.

I'm trying to insert a link which will enable users to download (not stream) a video over HTTP however I can't get the HTML to work.

I tried looking around but either I'm going blind or I'm dumb cause I can't find any solution.


What HTML should I use for my video text link to appear which will give users the option to save/download?

Re: Adding video "download" link

Hey wrestlingonline - I am having the SAME exact issue and was wondering if you had any luck figuring this out?


I am trying to have a .3gp download to the device (we have tested the .3gp video file on the device itself and it plays fine, but when put on our .mobi site we are unable to stream or view it directly)


PLEASE let me know if you have any updates or if you can put me on the right track.
