Download Failed! every time

Post#1 » Fri Apr 16, 2010 4:50 pm

i didn't change a thing but suddenly now i can't watch any divx clips, download doesn't work either, neither does opening in a new tab...
i seriously have no idea what could be causing this, i was watching clips up until an hour ago...

every time i try to connect to a vid it gets to about attempt#5 and then a message telling me the web player is unable to download and i'm to check my internet connection... so i tried updating the player and it couldn't even find the divx server... it's sooo damn weird

i'm using the latest version of firefox with up to date greasemonkey, xp pro sp3, and divx player 1.4.2.7

please help -.-'

something must have changed on your system for it to just up and stop playing videos, any changes made to your system/browser etc around the same time?

this is so damn frustrating... -.-

found some viruses but still getting bupkus... well, at least DL'ing works, but no stream for me no more...

i'm thinking it has something to do with my network parameters....

what was that cmd-line-cmd again which resets your internet connection? ;)

i'd be willing to bet that it would work again after re-installing windows, but i've got no cd atm so that's not an option...

Ugh. I have the same problem. It started last night. I'm using stupid Microsoft Security Essentials and it's up-to-date and says everything is fine. What viruses/worms/whatever did you find?

thnx

Ive been getting the same error since yesterday, and I havent changed any settings either.

I'm on Windowns 8, Chrome and Avast Antivirus. I don't think it a coincidence that three different systems get the same error. Have you guys been able to solve it? I cant see the video on the Divx website either.

I am having the same issue. It started last night. It doesn't matter if it is 180 or Billion Uploads, I will get the "File Not Found" error when attempting to download episodes. I don't ever stream because it has never seemed to work right.

I don't know if either 180 or Billion has limits as to how much you can download at a time, but it is an intermittent problem.

Here is one link where it is doing it right now: http://www.icefilms.info/ip.php?v=13011& - Tudors S02E08

I have cleared my caches, deleted all cookies and restarted my computer multiple times. I have the most up-to-date of everything else and have not changed anything with my system in the past month that could've caused this.

(as a side note, ShareBees isn't even opening a webpage anymore. Are they completely down??)

What about scanning for spyware ? i recommend Malware bytes anti malware http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4716- ... lware.html
When i direct you to a videohost that you can't download from, use a program like jdownloader http://jdownloader.org/download/index?s=lng_en
Else try this addon for firefox, it can download many things also. http://www.downthemall.net/
Also Internet Download Manager does a good job (IDM) http://www.internetdownloadmanager.com/

i'm getting exactly the same problem, and i think it has nothing to do with my system as i have tried literally everything, and no change, apart from i went to myvideolinks and tried the same link from 180 upload and it worked fine through their site, so i am sure this is something to do with icefilms. This started about 2 or 3 days ago. (sad)
