In my application I have a requirement where the client/user needs to download video files from the server to their local machine.

I have to do this using C# MVC - can anyone help me by providing some ideas, coding to implement this.

Response.Redirect(filepath) will do it. You can also override the Response object setting the ContentType, etc, lots of examples online.

Video files are different from other file types. I would say, you should stream the video, instead of downloading. Better you write the code on this lines.
