||Website Downloads - YES or NO?
|| Let's look at it...
Requiring Downloads - You added music or some other program
to your site and it requires your readers to download software
in order to view it but they don't have the software and don't
1. Don't have anything downloading as the reader is opening
the page. This causes the page to load slow and can upset users
that don't like to download things unless they know what they are.
2. If you require something to be downloaded to view the page offer
it as a link on the page and not as something that is going to
automatically download whether they want it or not.
3. If you have music, video or something else on your site that
you think your readers will be interested in, add a link to the
software that they will need, next to the link to the music or video.
4. Try to use software that is common with most standard browsers
so you user won't have to download anything new.
5. Don't require your readers to download programs they
will have to pay for.
Above tidbit Found HERE:
I never do download software for one music listen or video
viewing. UNLESS, the program is widely used and I don't
have it. I don't really think there are any (anymore) that
I don't have either!
