We've all had our share of issues over time, no matter what Divx version or which host we were going through. In so many cases, those issues are individual ones brought on by the computer system and internet connection you have. But we have experienced the 'universal' issues shared by nearly everyone, as well. The saving grace has always been (and hopefully always will be) that ice and the forum members always do their best to help everyone get the best performance and experience they can while using ice! Thanks, guys. We appreciate everything *all* of you do!!!

Here's a new one for me. Started a few days ago

Image

It's only BU that I'm having an issue with and only on Firefox but I have no script installed on Chrome because I just never use it. Now I'm using it if I want to use BU as a source.

Anybody else? Just me?

OK, I have a new issue that just started happening a couple days ago:

When I click a link, it takes me to the proper file host page as usual. But then, as the page is loading, it gets to a point where it stalls for a REALLY LONG time. Eventually (after many minutes) it will finish loading the page and then I can download the file as usual. It always stalls at the same point: " waiting for www. tag. tlv media. com "

I have noticed this happening on three sites so far - billion uploads, sharebees, and 180 upload.


Has anyone else had this problem yet? and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.

yeah i can't stream at all with billion at all. I even tried turning off the script and copying the link location with vlc and kantaris. Nothing, what's the deal?

Yeah I've disabled greasemonkey. Disabled the script. Uninstalled the script and disabled greasemonkey. Still get the error message from BU. Doesn't seem to matter if there is actual script involved or not. Almost more like its a firefox issue than a script issue. So I've just been copying and pasting the URL over to Chrome and DLing it there if I need to use BU as a source. It works for the time being.

I got an e-mail from sharebees telling me they were going to shut down for a few days, because they were upgrading their servers. They should return in a few days better than ever. Well that's at least what they said.

OK, all you have to do when the Icefilms player comes up is scroll down a little bit. See that big green arrow under the Billion Uploads player? It says "Download" underneath. Click that and your window for Saving or Opening comes right up.

Guys, sometimes you have to be a little inventive. I've been noticing that a lot of the pages mentioned tend to move things around and sort of hide what you need to click in plain sight. If you can't get anything to come up, try clicking on stuff. Yes, you may get some ads, you may get something that wants you to download a file manager, but really, don't be so fast to give up. I get frustrated too sometimes, but by now I know unless something is REALLY wrong with the page, if I just apply some patience and search a little, there is always a button there to click that will bring up the download or save window.

That only gives me a prompt to download FastDownload.exe and while I appreciate the input I'm not really looking for workarounds. There are always other ways but ideally the script should just work. I'm just reporting the issue. Can't download from BU using Firefox.
On a side note just out of curiosity I tried the streaming options and those work. Would have mentioned that sooner but I never stream. Was just bored and decided to check.
