This should not pose any problems to most users. If you're having storage issues then stream the shiur and do not download it!
Alternatively, Smartphone Users can download the free Dropbox App (Available on iOS and Android) which should play them for you on the App itself upon clicking the links.
Apologies for the inconvenience.
