the above exceptions occur while i try to view a mpeg file by using servlets.the mpeg file resides on the server.i used res.setContentType("video/mpeg"),got an Inputstream from ServletContext, got an outputstream and wrote the bytes.

but getting the Exception while opening the file at the client.
ClientAbortException;java.net.SocketException,Connection reset by peer.
socket write exception at line .....

the line is

i changed the contentType as setContentType("video/mpeg"),but the file couldn't be recognized at the client.it shows blank at filetype so the user has to choose from the type of program to open the file.

i want the foll scenario.

when the page is submitted ,the file gets downloaded automatically and can view in the browser itself.(or the concerned the media player )

please do help me with this dilemma.
