I want to make it so when I go to a direct link of an mp4 I don't save them I instead just preview them in the browser I have tried changing wmf settings but can't do it.

what is the site and the link used? How the sites configures will determine how the browser works.

It was a mediafire link directly to an mp4 file but surely there must be a way to force it to not download as browsers that don't support saving files work this way.
