How do I download videos online without streaming them.


AC Question

Everything I try to download videos on the internet, instead of showing the downloading arrow on the top of my screen...the video starts streaming. I have checked on settings on how to turn this feature off. Because with the S5, I could use other features while downloading staff on the net but with S7 once I exit the video player during a download...it stops downloading

Welcome to Android Central! What sites are you trying to download videos from? What happens if you long-press the link, instead of tapping it?
