That worked and the media center did the sync and conversion.
When download icon is hit I noticed that a webpage is loaded which goes the the microsoft site to "download" it. Trouble is going to that site directly and hitting download also "plays" the video.
Point being I think the devs for this site had good intentions by taking the link to a microsoft like that says "download" but the microsoft site is not actually downloading its playing.
Anyway, now I know how.
