Re: problem downloading

Postby AuroraAstra » Sun Nov 07, 2004 3:24 pm

I was having the same problem as jinjue until today, but I finally figured out how get around it.

Download firefox, and use it to download from this site.

And now I can download! Yay!

Having trouble using the local download. It worked just fine to begin with, but I think it was yesterday it stopped working. Now the "Save As" box won't appear, and the link neither. One time I de-activated my internet connection, and after that it worked again. But now I can't make it work anymore..... can someone help?

I use:
WinXP
Internet Explorer 6.0

Unfourtunately, I can't help you with that; I've got my own problem.

I'm not sure what the problem is, but somehow the site won't let me watch certain videos(they say "No" instead of "Direct" and stuff like that.)

if it says No under the download, it means the creator is unable or unwilling to provide a link to the video. you can try to contact the creator for the video, or put a request in the request thread.

Sometimes that's not the case. People have left opinions for some of the videos so I'm guessing they've seen them. So why can't I?

Possibly cuz the creator once put them up for download (by indirect link), but couldn't pay for the site used (or was unable to keep it up) and now it isn't downloadable anymore...

I think you'd understand what i mean - anyway - NO is NO and usually stays NO - it's got nothing to do with you personally...

Try opening them :P

Please tell us what isn't working:
You can't find where you can download the AMV.
You can't download the AMV
You can download the AMV, but you can't find it on your hard disk.
You have downloaded the AMV, can find it, but if you double click nothing happens (Or something happens, but not showing the AMV)
You have downloaded, have found, have double clicked, but Windows Media Player is whining about something very weird called 'codecs'

Also, try telling us the video itself (the summary page, or just name, song and creator)

We'll be sure to help you with that!

I've been having the same problem that was mentioned by a few others above. Whenever I try to download something locally Media Player pops up on my browser and trys to play it, then goes to their website with an error message. I'v tried closing the player and clicking on the link that says If the download hasn't started click here... but nothing happens. I've also tried right clicking and going to Save target as, but then it takes about ten seconds to download a file that I am unable to open, the is definitely not the AMV. It's weird because I can download direct just fine, and every once in a while local downloads will work. I just don't know why they work sometimes and not others.
Sorry no IM addresses...yet.
