    How hard could it actually be to download a video file someone sends you a link to? I can't seem to figure this one out.

    If the send you a link to the file, you need to just click on the link and follow the instructions.

    Negative it opens in safari and you hit direct download and nothing happens.

    I send files from my Dropbox account all the time. It basically give the receiver permission to view that file. All I can think is the link is defective.
