    On my old android phone when I would play a video through the browser it would give me an option to stream it through the gallery or download it.
    Now I have a new phone and it gives no option it just streams straight there on the browser.
    How do I get it to bring up that option to download?

    I am running android 4.4.2 any more info required just ask :)

    It was running 4.0 if I remember correctly. There must be a way to enable that option again, it was so convenient.

    I have done that but it didn't change anything. Do you have the feature on your android devices? No one seems to have experienced the feature.

    the internet.
    What devices were used? Are their browsers identical? (For this we would need to also know the versions of WebKit or whats going on internally) I also have realized some sites do updates that block this feature, to keep traffic coming in.
