I think it only happens with video files, because apps work fine.

Known error

In reply to: actaullly

It is a known error in IE6. There is no fix at present. The way round this is to actually save it rather than open it from the location. That will make it work.

But i do save it

In reply to: Known error

I actually save the file to a location. For example, i save it to C:/h/the filename. But it still comes up with the error.
