I'm having trouble downloading a large quicktime file.

http://www.mediafire.com/?8myn0jdj5fl

After a while it just stops and I have to start all over again.

Any tips?

Btw, I'm using Firefox 1.5.0.9

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

I hate when that happens.

Use this FREE Program:

GetRight:
http://www.getright.com
GetRight will allow you to download files and it has the function of auto-resuming your downloads, eliminating the need to redownload the complete file over again.

Or...
Try downloading and install the latest version QuickTime.
It will overwrite the previous version.

I assuming surgirl is downloading a file and not trying to load a file in QuickTime.

Is that how it is surgirl?

And if that is, either way it goes, if the file is going to be on your hard drive, I would suggest the QuickTime Alternative program. It's not bloated with stuff you don't want or need, and it's waayyyy smaller in file size than QuickTime, which means that you'll get less of what you don't want on your computer. You can find it here: http://www.free-codecs.com

Yup, just trying to download a file :flowers:

But I'm having trouble with Getright :thumbsup:

I was trying to download this file, using IE (that's my default browser) and sure enough the Getright window popped up.
I clicked on the save button, but it downloaded the webpage and not the .rar file

I checked out the FAQ page and the getright forum, but I couldn't find any info.

Are you sure you're trying to save the file and not the page?

I use Firefox, and I was able to download from there (I started it, then canceled it)

I believe you're doing something wrong, like choosing the wrong option or something.

Also, be advised that that site is on a banned ip list. I use PeerGuardian 2, and it blocks that web site, and it shows the names associated to that ip address, and the name Comverse is a name I've seen plenty of times throught my browsing experiences. If you are downloading DRM (Digital Rights Management) content (copyrighted), you better be careful, and you better be using something that will prevent those ip addresses from connecting to your computer, because if you're not using any protection at all, they are indeed connecting to your computer.

Thanks for the advice about the those ip addresses.
I had no idea :thumbsup: :flowers:

I'm still having trouble with the quicktime movie.
The Getright window doesn't even appear anymore when I click the download button.
I must be doing something wrong :trumpet:

Here is an easy way to do it.

Go to your Start>All Programs>GetRight> then select the GetRight Tray Icon. You should now have the icon in your System Tray.

Try and download again.

And since you didn't know about the ip addresses, download this software:

PeerGuardian 2
http://methlabs.org
PeerGuardian 2 is an ip blocking tool which blocks unwanted ip addresses and web sites from connecting to your computer. If you are a p2p user or you're concerned about your online security, you should not surf the Internet without a tool such as this.

And also, read this thread:
