|Allowing mp4 downloads from Windows server|
Error 404 when file is on server
I have a mp4 file which I would like page visitors to be able to download.
To do this the following code;
<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink2" runat="server" NavigateUrl="~/videos/stopMotion.mp4">1.8MB Quick Time file</asp:HyperLink>
results in the follwing html
<a id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_HyperLink2" href="videos/stopMotion.mp4">1.8MB Quick Time file</a>
Clicking the link results in a 404 error.
I do not get the same problem for a .wmv file - so I suspect this is a Windows IIS configuration matter. What should I ask my web host to do?
Solved by amending web.config file
<mimeMap fileExtension=".mp4" mimeType="video/mp4" />
