What On Earth Is Going On?

Recommended Posts

I just went to the thread where Pete Smith posted some sound files.

After a few secs the first track started playing automatically.

Followed shortly by the second

Then the third

Bear in mind the first one hasn't finished yet...

Track four

and then track five starts...

...do you get the picture. Thought I was going mad until I realised what was happening.

1) Why

2) How do I stop it? :(

Cheers,

Godz

settings were changed to allow mp3s to stream direct through browser when click on the player without need opening new window

tested with dif browsers

Thanks for the reply Mike.

You're right I use a mac and I'm running OSX (panther). I'll have a look in prefs to see if it's something at my end that can be altered.

OOPS You said Browser, not OS

I'm on Explorer for Mac right now but I also use Safari when I'm feeling particularly anti-Micro$oft

I'm on OSX also. I think it's your settings mate, as mine works fine, in explorer. Go into your Quicktime prefs and see if youv'e got the 'play movies automaticaly as they download' button checked, as it could be this.

on a MacIntosh platform as well. Running OS9.1 and 9.2 Using Internet Explorer 5. They all start playing at once for me. Would like the opportunity to download the actual files in their entirety, so I can physically have them on my computer. I've had a lot of problems in the past with playing various types of media. Seems the best scenario for me personally is MP3 and MPEG.

If you go to www.deephousepage.com, there are a lot of people who post mixes there. Next to each mix there are options for different file formats, where you can stream, download, etc. It's a great setup. Why not check it out when you get a minute.

Maybe some new developments could spawn a separate sub-forum or revamp the media section of the site.

Hi Jaz

You should be able to download 'em to your desktop.

I have, by just holding down the mouse as you click to play the track, and dragging down slightly, you should then get the option box 'download to disc' etc. You might also do a search for "Audio Hijack" a freeware program that lets you convert realplayer files etc to MP3 for your iTunes.

PS the Ad-Libs arrived safe n' sound today, thanks

Spot on Trevski. Just tried again and it's sorted. They don't play automatically but I'd rather have to click once that listen to that cacophony again!

Nice one mate :(

ps do they still have "Mala Carpets" in York?

Maybe we could start a thread about soulful businesses, if it hasn't been done already.
