House of Grey Chapter 12 is trimmed - it's only downloading the intro (about 340Kb in size, 21 seconds).

Any chance you can get me the download URL, Jamie? It works fine for me, so there may be a problem with a single node. I need the link you are using. NOT the link displayed on Podiobooks.com, but the one in your browser when the file is downloading/playing.

Here's the URL from my feed: http://www.podiobooks.com/chapter/345...

Here's the URL in my browser: http://c4.libsyn.com/media/1445/PB-Ho...

I've tried the download from a few places (work, home) and gotten the same result with both - only the intro to the episode.

Thanks
Jamie

Thanks, Jamie. I have no idea what is wrong, but I've notified Libsyn and let them know that something screwy is going on.

Chapter 13 is also just the intro - 24 seconds long, 396 kb in size. Its URL is http://c2.libsyn.com/media/1445/PB-Ho...

Thanks

Jamie,

Something strange. I just clicked the link you included in the last post, and it works fine for me. I get the entire file.

It does not work for me either ( not on iTunes, not on Podiobooks, neither Jamie's links). It always stops after a bit of music and half a sentence. I ended up listening to it at the blog

Odd that the link works for some and not others. Not being a network guy, I'm WAY out of my league. I'll ask the guys from Libsyn to come over here and comment. We shall see.

Heard back from Libsyn. I don't think they get that they can come here and ask their own questions, but whatever. Point is, they'd like to know three things:

1) what browser/application the listener used to download file
2) if no matter how many times they retry, still doesn't work
3) If it's just that show, there might be something in the way the file is encoded that's messing up that person's browser.

So there you have it. If you can provide that, further troubleshooting will commence. Sorry for the hassle!

I've used: IE 7, FireFox and iTunes on Vista; FireFox, Konquor, wget on Linux; IE 7, Firefox on XP; wget on NetBSD

This is using different machines in different locations - the Vista and Linux systems are at home, the XP machine is at work. The BSD system is the SDF public access UNIX system (http://sdf.lonestar.org/index.cgi for a free account.)

It fails no matter how often I retry the link, or from where.

Both chapters 12 and 13 are truncated, chapter 14 comes back with a 403 Forbidden error when I try it, and 15 and up are full size.

Thanks
Jamie

Here's the wget log from my Linux system:

1) FireFox and iTunes
2) Ch12 still does not work
Ch13 now works on Podiobooks ( it did not last week), but I deleted it on iTunes and can't get it back
Ch14 does not work in both places ( Error message in iTunes "Authorisation is needed to access..."
Ch15 now works in both places. Last week I got the same error message on iTunes as for Ch14
3) My other subscriptions have been fine

I hope, that helps!

Update from Libsyn:

"We recently changed CDNs. It seems that the old CDN had the correct file size, and the new one did not.

Marty is updating that file and will run a check to see if any other files fell victim to this issue as well.

Ep 12 should start working again in about an hour as the CDN updates."

I just clicked the links above for Chapter 12. It seems fixed. The link for 13 is still bad, so I'm writing them back to tell them.

Weren't computers supposed to make our lives easier? :)

And now 13 is fixed. They think it was fixed last night. Didn't work for me an hour ago, but does now. Could be caching on my part. Can others confirm that all is fine with these two now?

Both 12, 13 and 14 are working fine now.

Thanks!
