I want to save an mp4 video link to user's pc's specified local path. Is there any way to do that with asp.net ?

You can't do this for security reasons.

I will figure out another solution.

Ok then , one question;
There are lots of browser extesions which download youtube videos and you can set the download folder,
how they can do that?

Browsers do support plug-ins etc, some proprietary like IE supports ActiveX and browser extensions, Chrome has it's own plug-in architecture as does Firefox. These are EXEs that the user has explicitly chosen to install and they run on the client in the
security context of the user and can generally do whatever EXEs on that machine can normally do, this includes examining the file system and writing to it. Such technologies are outside the scope of this forum however.

Thanks for detailed answer,
I see that it is not allowed to do that via web application but can ben done by EXEs or plugins.
So let's ignore specifying the save path,
How can I download any mp4 link to user's pc (default download location) ?

Is it possible to download a link something like to user's pc
which can be played in browser.

How to save an mp4 video link to specified client pc path via asp.net?
As our community member mentioned above, it's not recommended to do that.
You can use HTML5 to play MP4，check out
