A growing number of you have been having problems with the zip files, mp3's or both. I haven't been able to figure out why yet. For some, the files come through very short and re-downloading later works, but for others the files have an "invalid" error and never work at all. I've checked the files on the server and they seem fine. I also checked with the hosting company and there are no server or bandwidth errors that we can find. Anyone have any ideas?

Anonymous said... I never have any problems at all...either on a computer with dial up or one I have that uses DSL. I have, however, encountered a problem on a Broadband hook up..I wonder??? That should work the best and most quickly you would think.

Sorry others are having issues, but it always works like a charm for me and I am SOOOOOOOOOOO grateful that you record these each week. Huge thanks. - Jun 17, 2008 11:01:00 PM

Angela said... Thanks! I can't find a common link between any of the people having problems. Different connection types, OS's, ISP's, locations. It's not even always the same problem! I'm stumped. - Jun 17, 2008 11:24:00 PM

simon reboul said... Hi Angela, Regarding the 'invalid' error: In recent weeks I noticed some problems when joining the 4 separate files into one large one for playing on iTunes. I traced the cause to different sampling frequencies between the files. For example, part 1 was sampled at 44.1 kHz, part 2 was sampled at 33.2 kHz, then part 3 was back to 44.1 kHz. The effect of this was to cause the part 2 section to play too quickly. I assumed this was caused by sourcing the files from different people using different recording software.

The solution was to resample the 33.2 kHz files to 44.1 kHz before merging them together. Hope this helps, and thanks a lot for maintaining these weekly downloads mate, I really appreciate it. Cheers, Simon Reboul, Tempe, AZ - Jun 18, 2008 1:50:00 AM

Anonymous said... Same here! Download just fails somewhen while downloading. *sigh* Never had this problem before. - Jun 18, 2008 2:42:00 AM

Goatboy said... I had trouble downloading the missing part three of the 11th yesterday, just tried it today and managed to get it, although I can't seem to download the new show, I'll try again tomorrow - Jun 18, 2008 2:30:00 PM

looks to me like a router near the server is dropping connections, only way i could complete was to use a download manager and each zip had to be restarted 10 times - Jun 21, 2008 12:37:00 PM
