I got a intranet site, which I can not alter and trying to read a stream from a remote url like this:

I need to be able (to allow users) to download/save the video to their local machines for offline viewing. Anybody knows what could be the best approach here?

MP4 is supported in Firefox and Chrome via the video element. So you don't have to use any fancy video players to play back the video, but you can allways use something like the JWPlayer[^]

To include download as an option just put a link to the site, that points directly to the video file. The browser will handle the download.

Tried including the link - the browser just plays it ;] Are you referring to some particular browser?

Like this:
<video width="320" height="240" controls>
<source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
<source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">
Your browser does not support the video tag.
