DL resets if Im watching upon completion

Post#1 » Mon Jun 13, 2016 4:34 pm

Download automatically resets back to 0 upon completion if Im watching the file when it finishes. Ive deleted my cache and my cookies with no effect.

WIndows 10, VLC, Chrome, All link sites.

It is still there if you go to where ever you have the DL's you will see it as a part file. Just go to rename and delte the .part and replace with MP4 or what ever it is and it will be there for saving to archive or where ever you save it to for future enjoyment.

Thats not the issue. The issue is if Im watching the file while Im downloading, and I almost always am, the entire file resets upon completion of the download. Meaning it deletes the file and starts the download from zero again. This never used to happen and has only arisen in the last week or so.

It must be your file saving settings. I dont use chrome..... 75% of this help section is from chrome issues.

I had the same exact issue. Chrome's default behaviour concerning downloads changed a week or so ago.

To fix the problem, type

Code: Select all

chrome://flags
on your address bar to access the experimental features settings.

Scroll down to "Download Resumption" and change the setting to "Disabled". Allow Chrome to reset.

Now the video should keep playing like it did before.

Cheers.
