I don't know if someone else has experienced the same problem of mine.
When I download a sound, it is automatically loaded inside Windows Multimedia. The problem is that, when I try to use the command "Save file" of Windows Multimedia, the filename is invariably the same and with the extension ".php"
How to save the files in the wav format?
Thanks in advance to everyone will post a reply
when you click 'download' a dialog box should open for you to chose between saving the file in your disk, or playing it (with the default application in your PC). But if it doesn't try right-clicking in 'download', then choose 'save link as'. If the option 'save link as' does not appear, install and use Firefox (instead of IE). Hope that helps
Thanks a lot. Clicking "download" did not appear any dialog box, but right-clicking in "download" works.
I feel silly about not having think this solution before.
I use Firefox and I cannot dl. I right click and choose save link as -this usually works and works on other sites but I have the php thing again: samplesDownload.php and no wav or zip.
What to do?
Make sure you have the latest version of firefox.
And it's a left-click you should use in firefox.
Make sure your cookies are alowed.
I have the latest version of Ff. Cookies allowed. I did try to left-click still I had same problem. Today it works fine with left clicking... The problem seems to be Free download manager. Dl with ff theres no problem.
aaaaaaaaah, ok, download managers probably don't like Freesound's download mechanism
Yep i had the same problem using win xp and wmp it renamed the file php i just renamed it wav and it playes fine. Its weird it does that, this place is different even the uploading compared with other sites. Well they don't have the big bucks so expect some problems. You can also just copy the stream if you have a mp3 recorder try "audacity" its a free program works pretty good but not as good a Goldwave. Goldwave costs 50 bucks buts worth it.
