I am not SMRT

Postby cinnamon » Sat Mar 03, 2012 10:40 pm

I'm pretty much a technology retard. I haven't been around for a good while and when I updated my subscription to the new site, I cannot for the life of manage to get episodes 220-224 to download to iTunes. If I try to download them individually it just plays them. They are not on the archive page.

HELP SAVE ME I AM GOING ON A TRIP SOON AND I NEED THEM ON MY IPOD.

Try right-clicking on "download" on the individual story, then "save link as" to your hard drive.

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love you right now. You have saved me from ruinous boredom on an airplane (as well as death by being annoyed by not having all the episodes in order), which as everyone knows is the worst way to die. THANK YOU

Your thankfulness matches your avatar perfectly. :D

This problem manifests itself all over the web. The browser is what's choosing to do something fancy with the file like play it, rather than just download it. Without some fancy scripting, we can't force the browser to download. The only way is to right-click and save as. It's really stoooopid, IMHO.

Well all's well that ends well. I use a MacBook, so I almost never think of right-clicking (the equivalent, anyway) as a solution to a problem like this. Now it seems so obvious, though. :p
