STEP 4: After that go to File Explorer (My computer) and in the address bar paste the copied address. Make sure you first delete the present address and paste the address. Press enter after pasting. See image below.

STEP 6:  Here you will see the different folders that are temporary. Now see the name of the file you are downloading and match it with the temporary folder name. If no match is found with the file name then see the URL and match it with URL. See image below.



STEP 7: Now the last step. Go inside the folder that matches the file name which is downloading. Now inside that folder you will see a file with .log extension, we don't need that file. You will also notice many other files which don't have any extensions. Just double click on first file that is without extension. See image below.



It will ask you to open this file with the some software. I use VLC to play files so I selected the VLC and the preview started. You can select any other video player to preview the video. The preview will last for few seconds or minutes. It depend on the data which is downloaded till now. See image below.
