    hello all. I am new to this site and have a question for some one with more experience than me.... here is the situation. I am logging into a site with my ipad 2 using safari, and watching some instructional videos and I am given 2 options. one column is labled "streaming" with a "watch now" button when I click this nothing happens. I assume this is a flash player issue. kinda what I expected. but the other column is labled "download now". the size of the file is noted in the far right size (I assume its the size... 87m, 94m 112m, etc) when I click the "download now" button the video loads automatically and plays. (much to my surprise...!) here is the weird thing... if the size listed is more than 100m I get the "safari cannot download this file" message... is there a setting somewhere in safari that I can change to make this work? I tried a couple other browers (chorme, and atomic web) and that didn't work either... can anyone help?

    Perhaps a downloader app from App Store like Total Downloader or iDownloader? Download and watch later?

    You wont use the stream feature if you do not have a http service on your computer.

    this was my orginal thought when I pushed the "download" button but was surprised to see the video load automatically and start playing...
