    I'd like to setup links to downloadable videos. When I use the link provided by amember it opens the video in a new tab instead of prompting the user to save the file. Is it possible to allow them to download?

    Do you use latest version? Latest version should force file download.

    What browser and have you got its settings to 'always save' or always ask'?

    Sounds as if browser settings may be set to open and play that type of file.
