Download Helper - how to download and save files .wmv WITHOUT the video being downloaded reading on screen?

Windows 7 Pro
Latest Version of Firefox
Latest Version of Download Helper
Windows Media Player and VLC are installed

When I download a video file (.wmv, usually) the video starts to play on the screen of the monitor prior to my being able to use Download Helper to download the video and save it on the hard drive. This generally translates the video stopping and playing and stopping the process of download because of the speed of download available. There is never any problem with the final download hard disk.

Today I installed the latest version of Firefox and Download Helper on another computer.
Windows 7
Latest Version of Firefox
Latest Version of Download Helper
Windows Media Player (not) is installed

Downloaded the same .wmv file you downloaded above and the video started to play on the screen of the monitor. Download Helper has allowed me to download the file on the disk hard WITHOUT constantly tuned to the video start/stop/start/stop etc.

Which option (in which program) would allow playback of the video to be turned on and off all by downloading the .wmv file?

Thank you.

Once the download has started, you can go to another web page. The
Download must be a separate function.

  • For a given file, how to add and change file properties on the Details tab, for properties that are not in the properties list?

    Now, I am aware of the modification of the properties of the file is simple in Windows 7 Explorer. Select a file, 'Properties', then tab "Details".  Some are not editable, and that's understandable.  Click on next to any area classified as year, Genre, Publisher, etc. and the apply.  No problems so far.

    Then of course in Explorer, when you right click on a column header, you get several choices of column beyond the usual that is displayed by default; Date, the Type, size, etc.  But, there is an option "More...", which has up to now, MUCH more useful properties to choose from, such as the model project, Department, job statusand so on.

    It's fantastic!

    But when you look into the details of any given file, none of these additional properties even are listed to be edited.  Why offer to view these details, if you don't change them, or add them to different files?  I must be missing something.  I do not need to add my own custom details, this additional list has a choice, that I need; If only I could edit the files to get this info.

    How to add and change these properties to files?  Word, Excel, MP4, AVI, JPG; I would add these properties, so I can set directly in the Solution Explorer, as you would by name or Type.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    My experience is that most of these 'extra fields' no existence not as fields in the directory (folder) itself.  On the contrary, these fields exist in the target file itself. Each file type has its own format and established file except for the types of files that belong to Microsoft, Microsoft cannot control or arbitrarily change the format of a particular file type.

    For example, a ".jpg" file  The format of this file type allows a large number of areas such as comments, Tags, date taken, opening, device manufacturer and so on.  If you go into the properties on a .jpg file, you will see a lot of them and will be able to change.  After changing any of these fields, you will find that the file itself has been changed to contain this information (as can be verified by the parity of the file and to come check upward with a different checksum).  If you display one of these fields in Explorer and 10000 ".jpg" files in this folder, then Explorer must open each of these 10000 files to extract the data in the corresponding fields, you have chosen to display.  May take some time.

    Compare that to the same picture saved to a file ".bmp".  The ".bmp" format has no provisions for any of these fields, so you will not be able to view, save, edit, or sort by them.  If the editable fields are directly related to the type of file that is displayed.

    Microsoft has apparently interviewed a lot of file types and made a compilation of the editable fields in each type of file and the Union of the selected fields in which can be displayed and modified.   That's apparently what you see in the option «More...» ».   So, in summary, the file type determines which fields are available for editing and posting.



  • How can I rebuild a file descriptor without the necessary info VMDK?

    I have four files VMDK format 2gbsparse without the correct descriptor file. I need to access the data (access part will do). I don't know the correct origin of the disk size or the last piece.

    The sizes of the blocks are:

    2,094,596,096 test-c-export - s001.vmdk

    2,139,947,008 test-c-export - s002.vmdk

    1,790,012,344 test-c-export - s003.vmdk

    1,739,020,288 test-c-export - s004.vmdk

    Any tool can deal with this situation? I failed to persuade VDK to play songs again.

    the descriptor you compound is inconsistent - you use a diskgeometry for a record 38 GB.

    You must use better

    DDB. Geometry.Cylinders = "1043".

    instead of 5000.

    Do not use vmkfstools - I it would rise with vdk.exe instead.

    Anyway - I doubt that it will work like that - the disc was probably not created in 8188 MB size.

    I suggest you fake a 5th slice and use a geometry for 8 GB

  • How to have a batch file executed without the BACK popup on the screen?

    original title: running tape recorder in a minimized batch file or out of sight?

    Hi, I'm wanting to play a sound every 30 minutes.

    I wrote a batch file for use of Windows sound recorder to play the sound, and then close.  I will use the Task Scheduler to run and the calendar.  The sound seems to play fine, but every time it works I see a popup box BACK and then heard play recorder app.  These two things quickly disappear automatically, but ideally, I want the sound to play and can't see the window BACK or recorder popup of sounds on the screen.  Is there a way to minimize or hide these things automatically?  As it is run in the background, but still play the sound?  My batch file is below:

    Sndrec32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\Media\chimes.wav" /PLAY / CLOSE

    This could help you.

  • When I download a WMV file on a website and then play through the Player Windows Media, I get the audio but the video is just a green screen Uni.

    When I download a wmv on an internet site and then play through the Player Windows Media, I get the audio but the video is just a green screen Uni.  I was told that the media player can miss a card.


    1. what operating system is installed on the computer?
    2. are you able to play videos other than video .wmv successfully?
    3. don't you make changes to the computer before the show?

    Method 1
    I suggest you to check if the hardware acceleration of the display device setting is too high.
    a. Click Start, click Run, type desk.cpl and then click OK.

    b. click on the settings tab and then click Advanced.

    c. click the Troubleshooting tab, and then move the hardware acceleration to none.

    d. click on apply and then click OK twice.

    e. If the problem is resolved after you move the slider hardware acceleration to none, contact the manufacturer of the graphics adapter driver to determine if there is an update that resolves this specific problem.

    Method 2
    The required codec is missing or damaged. If the problem occurs when you use a .wmv file, download or reinstall the latest version of Windows Media Player. If you use an earlier version of Windows Media Player, upgrade to the current version of Windows Media Player for your operating system.

    If the problem occurs when you use a different format of video file, for example a .mpeg file or an .avi file, download or reinstall the appropriate third-party codec.

    Codecs: Frequently asked questions

    Note: With the help of third-party software or a link, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third party software or link can be resolved. Using third-party software or a link is at your own risk.

    Hi Imran,

    Can't do much about that because it depends on what authenticate you the VPN server and how the settings. But let me introduce you to the memory layout. Once you install and open a VPN client. Press it again and it opens up a new page for the VPN config.

    Example of configuration as it is attached. But it differs depending on the configuration of your vpn server.

    Once you create and save this profile. Your FCP file is stored.

    Anyone know why audio and video export separately? I can't understand why. Help is very appreciated.

    Are you sure that you choose a preset of Blu - ray? This will create separate assets. Thanks for posting a screenshot of your export settings if you can - which is usually much enough quickly

    Thank you
