    Slow download?


    Hmm.. This has never happened before, but I am getting low kbs every time I try and download some sounds off this site. Usually around 10-15 kbs. But before, I would get at least 150kbs? It's definitely a dramatic change. I'm not sure if it's my internet because I can download anything else, not on this site, at around the usual speed of 150kbs.

    I'm still getting 2.0MB/sec, so perhaps it's your internet connection.
    Let me know if the problem persists...

    Haven't enough people brought this up for you to look into it? I have a fast internet connection, and yet have the same problem. It is relatively new. Sounds won't play in the preview, and they won't download, right click -> save as or not.

    I just want some sounds for my flash games :> EDIT: Wow I haven't signed in in 3 years, and it seems I missed a bunch of people contacting me about permission in that time. Well, it's kind of late, but anyone can use whatever they want however they choose.

    for a while the download is very slow for all samples, even I download at 1 kb\s!
    I have tried with all browsers, but the problem remains.
    I guarantee that others download in internet goes perfectly...

    hey,

    1. could someone with this problem provide me with a traceroute to freesound.org and media.freesound.org?

    2. Also try downloading these two (100MB) files:

    http://media.freesound.org/files/test.dat
    http://www.freesound.org/test.dat

    and tell me how long it took for each of them.

    3. please try downloading that file with at least 2 different browsers (for example firefox, internet explorer, opera, safari, chrome) and report for each.

    thanks,

    - bram

    Could you try on another computer, just to make sure it's not the computer?
    A laptop, or something.

    Also could you let me know if this is a constant problem (all day and night long) or just sometimes?

    we're working on a possible solution for the problem.
    it's very difficult to figure out what exactly is going wrong because we don't see the problem.

    but we've found some hints that MIGHT indicate the problem.

    stay tuned for more news...

    hey bram, there's one more thing.
    i tried to download from freesound from a my friend's home, who lives in my own city and from that, I download normally.
    surely it's a problem of my connection, or my telephone line.
    I repeat that in any other download in my pc, the speed is very normal.
    maybe should be a conflict between my connection and Freesound only.
    I hope this is helpful.
    Thank you so much for the time you're dedicating for me. smile
