    hi guys im new here

    need help, im on the galaxy s5 and after the loliipop update few weeks ago all downloads fail

    firstly how i download is: i use chrome, when asked to save a vid i get 3 option to select chrome, internet or my own installed (mxplayer).. so i select internet to download as if i select chrome it just opens video and plays in browser so i have to select internet(unless theres a way???)

    so this method has been working fine for past 2 years till now, as soon as i select internet from chrome to save vid it says downloads failed usually instantly sometimes it does do a few % then fails but thats rare

    what iv tried so far:
    -clear both browser history cache in app and using app manager
    -manually adjusted phones time by unticking automatic time update and unticking timezone
    -cleared the cache and data of download manager
    -turned phone off with battery out
    -booted phone up in recovery mode and done clear partition wipe(whatever its called)
    -uninstalled and reinstalled chrome
    -made sure phone has plenty of memory left(about 7gb left btw dont using sd card in it)
    -made sure theres no low limit set on mobile data as i have unlimited
    -used cleanmaster to clean all junk and etc
    -gone to setting and done factory reset

    but still same problem

    play store works itself downloads apps and stuff just fine so help guys plzz

    Welcome to Android Central! How is the video that you want to save displayed on the webpage? Is it a link, or an embedded video? On my Nexus 5 using Chrome, if I long-press a link to a video, it give me these options:

    Open in new tab
    Open in incognito tab
    Copy link address
    Copy link text
    Save link

    If I select "Save link," it downloads the mp4 file to my Downloads directory.

    its like link.. you click download and enter captcha and it asks what to open with

    i have 3 choices internet, chrome, mxplayer

    If i choose chrome or mxplayer it starts playing vid

    But i want to download which i do by choosing internet and download starts its just after lolliopo update it suddenly stopped working.. still works fine on mates phone

    So instead of tapping the link, long-press it and see if you get the Save Link option.
