    OK... I'm going on the assumption that even though I'm asking about my webserver and your computer and connection... it's MP3s that will be moving, so here I am in Misc.



    Ok. A guitarist friend since the early 80's asked me a few months ago about how to get MP3's linked to a webpage. I said upload them to my home network and I'll plant them in a folder @ my webhost... Now the problem is, He can't get more then the first 20 sec or so of each file to either download or stream.

    The MP3s are here

    Could you guys pull one or all of his tracks and let me know the following:


    1. Stream or Download
    2. Did it complete
    3. Your Operating System
    4. Your Browser
    5. Your media player
    6. Your Connection type/speed
    7. and any comments {optional}
      [/list=1]

      I'm going to link him to the thread so feel free to give your thoughts.

      Here is "The Ruby Hicks" Official website

      Thanks

    Thanks It works fine for me on my Mac, Linux and WinXP boxes while behind a firewall and with a cable connection. I had one person on an AOL dialup say it only streamed less then half... and now my buddy can't get any. I know he mostly surfs from a MAc @ his office LAN
