If someone wants to send me a full copy of the video from another server, or wants to ftp it...
I would be happy to host the video on my servers... I have plenty of bandwidth, and the file should be able to distribute at max line speeds.

I am a registered user here, I just dont feel like signing in...

Oh, and windows MP is definitely saying that it is a server error, not a problem with codecs or updated windows media.

Don't know why that would happen; you are downloading the entire file from the server, not needing to connect to it for anything.

Go to the website and, instead of clicking on the link, right click and choose "Save Target As..." Let the file download completely, then load it in Windows Media Player. See what happens.

Yah, tried that..
It really is strange, I have never seen a dl behave like that.
It just gets to this one point (14MB) then it jumps from 3 percent complete to 100 percent complete.. and all I am left with is the first minute or so of the video.
I can't imagine why this would only effect my computer, especially after the server side warning wmp gave me when I tried to play the streaming version.

Someone mind trying to dl the file, the whole file.. and see if the jump from 3 percent to complete happens to them? Cause it definitely appears to be dl'ing fine, right until you get to 14-20MB downloaded, then it goes FUBAR.

yes, I have received the problem since it was reposted after Dennis It is definitely some kind of server side problem. Maybe a download limit or server being overloaded. There has been a lot more traffic to the site with hurricane season in swing. The most I have been able to d/l at once with a high speed connection is about 120 mb. That was one time late at night.

I don't know if there is anything Mike can do to help us out here... it is a very large file... maybe host it on another server? I'm just hoping one time I get lucky... although the problem will compound since it causes one to have to re-d/l the file from the beginning every time he gets kicked. I could have downloaded it 5 times+ by now! :-p

Heh, well atleast we know that a problem exists.

Like I mentioned earlier, I can host this file on a very fast connection for free.
I just need someone to send me the complete file, obviously in a different method than the current server. You can either ftp it somewhere, or make a torrent out of it again.
I will dl it and host it for as long as needed.
You can email me @ laxpimpj@gmail.com

I tried piecing them together when I couldn't get past "buffering 3%" of the complete version. I can watch portions of the smaller videos, but #3 says it is incorrectly linked, and 4 of the others only buffer a portion and then give the server error message. For what it's worth the small portions I was able to watch were spell binding. I was very pleased that I was able to get all of part 6 with the music and everything. That chapter, for lack of a better word, was kind of a surveying of the area after the storm had passed and it really captured the extensive damage surrounding the landfall area. I didn't notice a lot of flooding, which seemed strange.

Hey laxpimpj

I did download the whole video, I will send it over yousendit.com so you download it. It's 343mb though.

if you have any questions about anything that happened in the movie, feel free to pm me or ask them here. I am glad to see that it is working (allbiet a little supprised that all this transpired without my knowing of it! I have been out of town for the last day or so, and I was going to upload the file to the server myself. )

cheers

I live in Pensacola, on Gulf beach highway bordering Grande Lagoon at 25 foot elevation and stayed for Ivan. I shudder to think of Charley's wind combined with Ivan's flooding and surge.....

The winds made for a long night. Coincidentally, this months National Geographic features the 2004 Florida Hurricanes. Good pic of Grande Lagoon......I live out of the picture on the top of the hill across the road....It was eerie riding the bike that morning around the area with the wind still blowing a bit before the authorities and others arrived. I didn't even know there were some still trapped.

Hurricane Charley

The Film



Watch the movie again tomorrow, and relive Charley. I will be at the park here filming the unveiling of a monument marking the one year anniversary. I will add some pictures of the event tomorrow. TWC should have a live feed going, so maybe you guys will see me. : )
