Can't play MP4 videos sent by e-mail.

Not sure if this is right place, but here goes.  When I receive an e-mail that contains a video, MP4 format, I click on it to download.  The system works and works, but never finishes.  Sometimes I receive a message that system is unable to download.  But mostly I just see that darn circle go round and round and.....

Can you SAVE attached file(s) ? With big mp4 file(s) sometimes you have to save it/them then play offline using the following free player

 

           http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

 

Please download and install, it will play nearly all video formats including Blue Ray discs (BD's).

 

Regards.

Thanks, but I have tried to save them, but a right click doesn't do anything, and a left click starts the download - which never ends.

I use Hotmail.com.  This is a fairly new computer with Windows10.  I also use Google Chrome for internet.  This machine has all sorts of Windows software.  I had an old PC that was on Windows Vista and didn't have any problem with viewing vids sent by e-mail.
