Everyone loves WMV! Not! Jokes aside, here’s what finally worked for me when trying to force download Windows Media Video (WMV) files.
The technique is surprisingly simple; just add this snippet of code to the root .htaccess file:
<Files *.wmv> ForceType application/force-download Header set Content-Disposition attachment Header set Content-type application/force-download Header set Content-Transfer-Encoding binary </Files>
As with many .htaccess tricks, there’s no editing required — just drop it in and done. Cheers!
