MP3 feed issue

Post by bolddeceiver » Wed Feb 09, 2011 8:15 am

Any reason why the last two episodes on the mp3 feed have been .mov rather than .mp3 files? I switched to the straight-mp3 feed because my media player doesn't care for the flavor of the AAC files on the main feed, but it likes these no better :|

episode 197 came out as a .mov? 195 and 196 were mess ups and I replaced with mp3 but some people had already downloaded. You'd have to delete the old and resubscribe to the mp3 feed to get the updated.

Negatory big Norm-ster...

I deleted my feed in Juice and re-subscribed, using the link for the MP3 feed and episodes 196 & 197 still come through as .mov files. 195 was an MP3 - I grabbed it back on 1/25.

No bitch here, just Jonesin' for some Drabble and don't own any devices that speak the evil language of the Apple. BTW - anyone else thing it's significant that an apple was the instrument of original sin??

Thanks a bunch for the amazingly creative and endlessly entertaining work you do. Keep it up...Please!

Well while he figures it out pop over to the archives and download them. Anything he doesn't fix in time I just transcode to MP3.

I honestly don't know. I delete the old, load up a new mp3, publish.... delete my old mp3 feed as a test, resubscribe and re-download, I get an mp3 episode coming down that feed.
I'll try again when I publish this week's episode, after some research.

Also going to give Tom's fan archive a prime real estate announcement soon because yes, one can always go there and get anything one needs, including those awesome 50 episode blocks of the past. Tom rocks!

Fixed it! Those damn software updates, they always gotta go 'round changin things up on ya and messin' with your workflow. Should be MP3's in the MP3 feed for now on.

I'm seeing another issue with the MP3 feed. The location for episode 198 on the RSS feed seems to be http://web.me.com/normsherman/Site/Media/dc198%201.mp3" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; but that's giving me a 404 at the moment. Any ideas?

I'll get the archive published in a few minutes with it. It came through my MP3 feed fine, must have happened after?

No idea what happened there. Worked when I checked originally after publishing and haven't tampered with anything since! Anyways, I just republished and looks like it works again now--
