    Probably one of the best ways to get free music is to download it off seeqpod with the download plugin for Safari. That's all jolly, but it saves it to Downloads. The only way to play it (to my extent of knowledge) is to copy the file to /Media/Documents and play it in SendFile. The easiest way to do that is to make a symlink. So that's what I do, I create a symlink that makes anything that goes to Downloads go to /Media/Documents. Ok, time to test it out. I go for a song (Highway to Hell) and press that Download button...........................

    About 2 minutes later the button still says "Downloading...". Something is messed up here. Does the plugin need a Downloads folder to work? Does this mean that a symlink won't work? If that's the case what else could I do to automatically move files in Downloads over to /Media/Documents?

    Any/all help is appreciated

    Quite odd indeed...

    I got the new SendFile, that's a good temporary way to do it, but if you still know how to fix the SymLink thing please, do tell
