    File size (content length) not showing when downloading files

    When I download a file from my server, only specific extensions are working. This is really annoying since I want to be able to see how much time left to finish a download.

    For example I uploaded a video with .vob extension
    file.vob --> does not show filesize when downloading

    If I rename the same file to different extension:
    file.avi --> works fine shows filesize when downloading
    file.mp3 --> works fine shows filesize when downloading
    file.rar --> works fine shows filesize when downloading
    file.mp4 --> does not show filesize when downloading
    file.wmv --> does not show filesize when downloading

    These are direct download links, not using any download scripts or anything. Why are some extensions displaying the filesize and some not displaying them? I am using Apache 2.x server.

    Hi

    How big are the vob files ?

    I think if they are over a certain size then it wont work properly (like 2Gig).

    They're between 100-300MB. Even if they're over a certain size, why does it work for some extensions and not others?
