Bug Description

in chrome (and other browser i think), it would save the video but when i try it on midori, it seem to fail to save correctly

1: find a direct link to a video file or setup a localhost server (unable to replicate the error with a file:// url, it doesn't even seem to try to save the file)
2: open the link and right click the video
3 (minor): doesn't show 'save as', instead it show 'save page as'
4: the file that gotten save seem to be missing the data part, as in unable to play

i end up with a 512 bytes file instead of a 14 .8mb (14,771,270 bytes) file

in case i miss anything, is there a way to save an video/audio file that decided to embed itself using html5? (mp4,ogv,ogg,mp3 just to name a few)
