Forum Question: Folder action for Download folder

I created some folder actions for Download folder just like Gary did on this video, but for different folder.
My problem is, when I download movie file it wont go to my movie file where it should go after download.
If I drag it out from Download folder and pull it back into very same folder my folder action will run and file will move to correct place.
So, is there some solution for this type of problem?

    I have noticed some inconsistency when dealing with folder actions placed on the Downloads folder in Lion. For one thing, the move doesn’t always seem to trigger right away. I’ve seen it take up to a minute to happen.

    I have mine in the Documents application in a folder with downloads on it. This has got nothing to do with the one on the dock. I don`t know if it`s me getting older, but i seem to find the complicated bits easy,and the easy bits hard. To tell you the truth i do not know what a folder action is. As i said before i am self teaching myself. I will have a look at this video if i can find it. Can you tell me the name of the video. Gary
