Could you run it with the --debug flag and post the output?

It looks like the MP4 file is being streamed over HTTP.

I'm trying to wget a collection of (big) mp4 files.
I have every file URL available, say "http://www.site.com/path/video";.
The site uses a session cookie for authentication.
I have managed to dump this cookie to a local file and use this file when 
connecting to the server for the download process.

I'm using this command line:
wget --load-cookies cookies.txt http://www.site.com/path/somewhere/video

The download seems to proceed fine but eventually I get less than half the 
video ..
Tried many other videos with same results.

With firefox, using page information, I can see the media named "video" which 
is mp4 file. If I click save as firefox will download the whole file without a problem.

I tried curl instead of wget: same bad result.

So I tried many options from wget's man page, like --ignore-length and others, 
to no avail.

wget --ignore-length -S output is:
   HTTP/1.1 200 OK

If I do wget -S without --ignore-length the last line becomes "Longueur: 2925253 
(2,8M) [video/mp4]" which is the exact length of the truncated file wget manages to 
download !!

Is wget ignoring my "--ignore-length" flag ??

Sorry for this long message and my poor english level .. I'm french and totally 
confused by this problem ..

Thanks for your help.
