    Fixed Streams


    It is hard to believe, but there appear to be fixed streams already. I will just move the original entries from my journals here, so we can check them later in case the problem recurs.

    The Dubliners (Original Dubliners - disc 2)

    it would be true only if you knew there's just one stream assigned to the track. if there were more than one being rotated, then...

    That is one reason for keeping track of them. Because I already suspected this, I checked the track several times.

    sharevari was so nice to fix the following two tracks by changing the priority of the offending streams.

    The Thermals

    The Weather Girls

    Christina Aguilera (Dance Vault Mixes - Hurt & Ain't No Other Man: The Radio Remixes)
    1. Hurt >> a dance mix
    2. Ain't No Other Man >> a dance mix
    not for me >:(

    in any case, it doesn't matter which album they're 'from', does it? unless you mean they shouldn't be the streams for those tracks.

    Mh, okay. I'll put them back then. The album is the one I think the offending streams have been uploaded for.

    This is fixed now because the redirection was removed:

    Streams Which Cannot Be Played (Oops! No content)

    These seem to be fixed, too. One of them may have been eliminated in the process:

    After Forever (After Forever)
    1. Evoke
    2. Transitory

    Yee-haw! It seems that with the recent site update, this annoying "feature" has been removed. The preview buttons play the audio attached to the tracks, regardless of redirection.

    Michael Jackson's Off the Wall is fixed!!!

    an educated guess would be that the 'fix' occurred on apr 12.

    i'll also add an interesting aside i discovered regarding inline track previews: if i see a preview for a track that i actually shouldn't (for instance, Ain't No Other Man) i can still preview the track if it has been referred to and tagged elsewhere previously in a post, and the track is available to that user or at that time, like in this post above.

    So you mean it is quite a service to other listeners if you provide a list of recommendations on your profile page? :-)

    the only place i know where this works is in forum posts, which seem to fix the 'previewable state' of a track from the poster's standpoint. so if you post a track that's previewable to you, the preview button will appear - and will work, even if elsewhere on the site (eg, on the track page itself) i can't actually preview that track the preview button is hidden from me.

    so yes, in that limited sense, one user can enable another to preview tracks using forum posts. i don't think the same will work on your profile page, shouts, pms, or journals, as they present a track's preview state dynamically, from the viewer's standpoint.


    case in point: this particular post regarding those christina aguilera tracks. i can still preview all of those tracks that show the preview buttons there, when i really shouldn't be able to anymore.
