Currently I have many VMU files archived at SegaFans, and since I live
in the US, I tested them with the Planetweb browser and they seem to
work just fine.

However, I just had someone from the UK ask me why the downloads didn't
work in their Dreamkey browser.

So I popped in Chu Chu Rocket to test it out and sure enough, it doesn't
work. It just opens the file like a regular text file.

I know with planetweb, you need to link to the VMI and have the VMS file
in the same folder. But does anyone know how to set up VMU files so
that Dreamkey can download them?

Thanks for your help!

The Dreamkey browser is more "correct" in that it relies on the
MIME-type of the download instead of just the extension. Make sure the
browser is saying that the VMI is of type
application/x-dreamcast-vms-info and the VMS is of type
application/x-dreamcast-vms.

Thanks for your help. I added those to my .htaccess file and it works
perfectly.
