I'm trying to find a technique to force mp3s to be downloaded rather than played in the browser when the user clicks a link. I'd like to stick to PHP/MySQL to it, but can also work with Perl if I need to.
In an htaccess file, you could throw in something like this:
AddType application/octet-stream mp3
Which essentially tells your browser to download the file rather than play it as an mp3 stream.
Hey, I like it; nice and simple. Thanks!
