Perhaps it's a browser issue, what are you using?

I'm using chrome. I suppose I could try to download Mozilla for android. Do you think that would help?

What is the actual problem when you're trying to download? Does it not try it to all, or does it say that you can't?

As for browsers, I've found Firefox and Dolphin both generally work fine.

The specific problem is that there is no option to download the information. I can save the link, open it in a new page, etc, but I cant download the file; the option simply isn't there. It wants to let me stream it, but it's been advised that initiates do not do that.

I personally use dolphin and I've never had a problem with it, if you tried dolphin and the problem persists, pm me and we will go from there...

I had to mess around with this a bit, and I don't know if it'll work on a Galaxy S5, but this is what I was able to figure out in the mobile Chrome on my Moto X. Your experience may vary:

Under The Myth, the video files ought to automatically start downloading if you click that link. You're looking at 300+ MB a video though. The audio file, if you click the link, it'll navigate to a window with a play bar on it. Click and hold down the play bar and it should pop up the option of "save video". If you do that, it won't show you a download icon on your top bar (at least it didn't on mine), but if you go to your Data/Storage area, you'll see it increasing in size. Once it's done downloading, the download icon shows up. The file also won't show up in the "Downloads" area until after it's fully downloaded. Now, my phone wouldn't run the file (mp3) , but when I hooked it up to a computer via USB, it ran just fine. Or you can maybe look for an app that will run it? Same thing for the audio file under the Meditation lesson. The video file on that one is a youtube video, so no extra steps needed.

For the lesson under Self, both the text and the audio files automatically downloaded by simply clicking the links as zip files. Which, will again, require a separate app to open up. Or you could just USB it to a computer and open them on a computer.

The audio file for the Field will download the same way as above. The text file for turning point takes you to a dropbox file that, once downloaded, ought to open in Google Docs. The text file for the Field requires a open that will recognize it as a valid PDF file, which the Adobe PDF app won't...

That's my experience with how to get the documents via Chrome. Again, yours may vary. And at least on my phone, it ended up being pointless because none of them would run without finding extra apps and what not; I didn't download a full video, so those might work, but I have a feeling not.

You may have better luck, the right apps, etc... Or maybe another browser is the way to go. :)

Thanks for all the great responses. I'll try a few things out and see how it goes. I'll be on a small retreat the next few days so I probably won't be on the website. But thank you all, i'll see you soon.
