Made this really simple patch. When you tap a link to a streamable file, the Browser will download it instead of stream it. I've only tested this with mp3 files and it works fine. Too sleepy to test it more... lol.

I'll improve on this patch later today.

I'll reply to any posts here when I wake up... Good night!

Excellent, thank you. I'll be giving this a go. I'll keep saying it until it happens; this should be a native function in the webos 3 browser.

It should be an option to either download or stream, can you do that?

Right now, it only downloads. I'll work on adding an option to stream.

I tried to install this directly from the touchpad with internalz and gave me an error. After using webos quick install the device reset by itself. Waiting for it to boot up to see if it worked.

Use Multi Mod for your Pre. It's in Preware.

Thanks for this man, just tried, works great. It's a step in the correct direction as to what I'd like to see native to the unpatched webos 3 browser. Looking forward to whatever updates you decide to do.

Will this work on the TouchPad? If yes, how do I install it?

Update: Never mind, I figured it out. Use Quick Install, click on the + icon and select the file :-). Sorry, newbee...

Update2: Worked great. Let us know when you add the "stream or download" option. THanks!

Is it safe to assume this will work with youtube videos as well? I'd test it out, but don't have my tp yet :/

Mine installed fine. I just don't think it works for Youtube videos. Have not tried it with mp3's yet. And I'm not sure where they are saved on the Tpad yet.....

This patch isn't working for me on the sites I've tried to download mp3's from so far. On some I'll get the download link option to show in context menu but when I click it it doesn't do anything and on other sites that have a link specific for downloading the mp3 all it shows is copy in the context menu when I hold my finger over the link and then it starts streaming it.

Any update on this patch adding additional options? I really enjoyed using it as the "Add download link" patch in PreWare didn't work at all for me. However there are several sites, like megaupload and others like that which when you click on the download button and it wants to save the cgi file.
