I've been trying to download the Ark Media Package (FREE version) to try it on a website, but the ZIP file seems to be corrupted - see above.

Kind regards,
Mati Kochen

Hi Mati,

The ArkMedia package file is not meant to be unzipped. You just need to install the  downloaded package as whole using the Joomla Extension Manager of your website.

You can also download and install the Ark Extension Manager and install that  using Joomla and then install all the other Ark Extensions using that Manager directly from this site:

Hope this helps,

Kindest Regards,
