Default Can't view Finless videos

I can't get the Finless videos to download...I have Windows 7 and it's telling me that the file type isn't recognized.

Do you have Windows Media Player installed? What happens if you hit stream instead of download?

On a side note, if you want a nice media player I suggest VLC Media Player. It'll play just about any file type of is available for download at no charge.

I have Windows media player and either button causes it to start downloading rather than streaming. The download always gets interrupted with an error message, format not recognized.

+1 for VLC, it works great on the Mac too.

IMHO, I don't know why they aren't hosted on youtube, smugmug or vemo, it may make viewing them a bit easier. - But thats a different discussion I suppose.

Something is not making sense here. If you RIGHT CLICK on the download link you should get a drop down menu. Click "save target as". Then you will get a file manager window showing you where you want to save the download. By default that will be my documents usually. It should then download and save to your hard drive! Win 7 wont care about any format for just downloading.

Now once you have it downloaded and if you try to play it from your hard drive and it wont play, you have some problem with Window Media player. My vidoes are standar Windows WMV videos and they work in any version of windows. If it wont play for you then something with your install of win 7 or media player is a problem.
