Default Download video file from ASP page

This is my first post so I am interested in the response. I am still coding in ASP but.. I need to allow my registered browsers to click on an icon and download an MPEG file for them to assess on their own computer system and then submit an answer back to my web site. How do I write the code to allow then to down load a file eg myvideo.mpeg? I could not find this in previous posts.
Thanks for any help

I would simply compress the file and make it available for download as a .zip or .rar file. Probably .zip because not everybody can deal with .rar files.

Im sure you know how to do this.....just incase:

Click <a href="myPath/myFileName.zip" title="Click to download the zip file">here</a> to get my MPEG file. Oh and merry Christmas to you all!!
