How to save direct file links or Circumvent right-click download restrictions
Occasionally one finds or is sent a URL of a file, such as a mp3 or a mpeg. If one pastes that link into a browser, the browser’s default action will occur, which often will be to play the file. But what if one wants to save the output?
Alternatively, some sites annoyingly disable downloading through the prevention of right click action, specifically the ability to use the "save link as" or "save target as." I don’t like when they do this, and I want a way around it.
In either case, there’s an easy solution found through some simple HTML coding, which I was inspired to post because of Spacekidkyle’s HTML Instructable.
