I have been trying to view TUbe Wars for some time, and it would seem th eonly way to view this movie is to awit internet explorer to download full thing and then play - u cannot download it using download accelerator etc - any software that allows resuming - for those people who do not have the high connection speed to watch the file straight off and must download over days at a time?

SOrry if im mumbling but I hope u understand, if not i'll redifine it.

Cheers smile

I would suggest you right click and select "save as" on the film instead of clicking. Like that , you will know how much time is left biggrin

I have done... I'm not that stupid. (Well I could be)

However this plan fails as the movie is contained within an html page / popup window / stupid thing that does not allow external access via the programs such as DOwnload Accelerator.

Have you actually tried this yourself?

And another thing - my original point was that users such as myself on a 56k modem can frequently not stay connected 24/7 either the server chucks u off or the line drops or connection lost etc many many problems that would be solved with a resumable download - simply right clicking and saving would not solve this problem even if that did work on TUBE WARS

This is one of our older movies. Unfortunatly it links to a webpage like you say rather than a actual movie (we no longer accept submissions like this because they cause these kinds of problems).
The ifilm website is the one stopping you using your download manager. They have a policy for how they show films and theres not much we can do about that im afraid
