  • for the last 6 weeks ...for the last 6 weeks i have encountered a problem while streaming media through daily motion and youtube.
    the progress bar for the video will travel steadily to a certain point and then fill up the bar all at one time, but when the video reaches that certain point of progress it stops and returns to start screen, without completing the video i have attempted to fix this problem by emptying my cache and cookies, i have reloaded windows, got rid of certain programs i thought may have caused the problems and reloaded my flash player but no success, i have explained this problem as best i can any ideas would be appreciated

  • please post a link to your testpage, else its next to impossible to guess what might be the problem...

    is it only a particular video or does the phenomenon apply to any video you attempt to stream?
    can you make it work with videos from your own site?

  • I want to agree with this problem... I'm having the same exact issue. I haven't the slightest clue what's causing it. And yes, it's been about 4-6 weeks that this problem has been occurring. My visitors keep complaining of the problem.

    FLV Player (3.7, 3.8) + ffmpeg (latest) + flvtool2 (latest) + lighttpd (latest svn)

  • I dont believe so... this is a recent occurance (like I said past 4-6 weeks). Prior to that, no problems at all.

    Members of my website upload file (wmv, avi, etc), and file converts with ffmpeg, inserts metadata with flvtool2 and serves from same herver using lighttpd. I dont believe it's an upload problem.

  • Sounds like yet another hickup in FFMPEG actually. Did you try moving back to a previous release of FFMPEG? The problem is that Flash’s implementation and FFMPEG’s implementation of H263 (Flash7 video format) is somewhat different. Flash uses a smaller featureset and stalls when it encounters any of the more advanced features.

  • We dont use ffmpeg - We use the flash video encoder to do the encodiing, ive done the metadata injection, if you pull the video off and view it in a stand alone flv player it works fine, however watching it streamed it looks as thought its downloaded completely but then it dies about 2/3 of the way in.

  • Same problem. Video stops after 10-20 seconds. But, I have done a fair amount of capturing of youtube video, and I'm thinking they know this and have dumped something into my registry or elsewhere telling youtube or the flash player not to stream any longer. I have a second hard drive with Windows XP loaded on to it, and on which I have done no captures, and I had no problem viewing a Youtube video when running XP on it. Same computer, same internet connection, same video (which I couldn't view using drive 1), just a different hard drive with a seperate operating system.
    So, have you guys that are having this problem done much video capture?

    there *must* be another explanataion!
    to make such changes to a user machine would be sooo illegal - i can not believe it!
    another thing would be to block the access to a site - but that doesnt fit your description.

    i would find it more likely that a windows or browser update is the difference!

    for instance there are markedly differences between the way IE6 and 7 caches and handles streams.

    which browsers have you tried? - if only IE, then try download a FireFox or Opera - see if that makes any difference...

    (to rip youtube videos i will usually just copy them from the browser cache after watching, or if im really really lazy use [url=http://keepvid.com/]keepvid.com[/url])

  • I'm having the same problem too (on my desktop).
    I reinstalled windows, applied all the latest patches from Windows upate.
    The flash video worked for couple of days and then started giving this problem (again).
    The last piece of software that I had installed was XviD-1.1.3-28062007.
    However, the problem didnt resolve after uninstalling the same.

    For some strange reason, I'm not encountering this problem on my laptop.
    I think there is some problem with the latest version of Flash.


    The problem goes away (for next few videos) if you uninstall flash, delete all registy enteries and then reinstall flash.

    Ofcourse I don't think anyone wants to do this everytime you want to watch a video.

  • what I'm seeing is Flash will beging to progressivly load a video (red bar) and then part way thru it will stop. When the curser gets to that point playback stops and diagonal bars appear in the remainder of the progress bar area.

    This seems to indicate that it's rebuffering to get the rest of the video, but it never completes.

    Didn't have this problem with the windows media viewer, when it had to rebuffer, it would eventual pick up playback from where it left off.

    Does this sound like what you are experiencing, or is this a more basic problem? And if so, could I get some idea what I can do about it? Short of asking MSNBC to go back to using the windows viewer ;)

  • has anyone found a solution for this problem? i've tried IE and mozilla, and in both the video will load in its entirety, but then quick part way through. sometimes clearing the cache (using the clear private data) will allow the video to play all the way through. sometimes, though, that doesn't work. I found a setting in the prefs file for mozilla that had the cache disk size set to 50000 KB. I changed that to -1 which supposedly makes it infinite.

    other than that, though, i'm stumped and annoyed. has anyone been able to fix this problem? I've had some problems in other programs with the nVidia firewall - could that be the problem?

    thanks.

  • I'm not sure if I have exactly the same problem...but my playlist contains .swf files and they are getting cut off at the end. Looks like the progress timer only starts counting up/down after the file has completely loaded so if it takes 20 seconds for entire .swf to load and the video starts streaming immediately then I lose 20 seconds at the end of the video and it is cut short.

    It only happens on first viewing - the seconds time around the .swf is already 100% loaded so entire movie plays.

    any ideas? solutions?

    @C-ad
    sounds somewhat like a problem with your machine-

    can you play .flv files locally on your machine?
    are your windows, IE and flashplayer browser plugin all up to date?
    can you play in other browsers such as FireFox or Opera?

    do you have enough free space on the harddisk?
    is your browser cache big enough and empty?
    do you have ram memory enough?
    do you know how to handle your firewall and antivirus program?

  • I agree I'm not much help, only have very limited computer knowledge. Server problem? I doubt it, the problem laptop is my next door neighbor on the same provider as me, but does have a slower connection speed as his laptop is on wi fi. So I tried it with other types of files,quicktime,wmv, and works perfectly. Tried it again yesterday, now here's something weird,when I started playing the video approx (50 meg) it would play the first few seconds,pause,etc.. like a typical slow connection speed,and it would stall at some point, I then right clicked a link on the same page to open a new window on the site, and while viewing the 2nd page, the video would download further, I'd close the 2nd page and it would stall again. Eventually I could download the whole thing by going to the 2nd page?!? The laptop has lots of hard drive space, I cleaned out the cache,and made sure there were no extra programs running in the background. It uses XP home, I use XP pro.

  • I don't know how to use this information but maybe someone else will.
    Using a video that I knew to always stall out and the help code provided in flash, this is the onStatus output I got:

    status (0 seconds)
    Level: status
    Code: NetStream.Play.Start

    status (0.992 seconds)
    Level: status
    Code: NetStream.Buffer.Full

    status (16.927 seconds)
    Level: status
    Code: NetStream.Buffer.Flush

    status (21.338 seconds)
    Level: status
    Code: NetStream.Buffer.Empty

    -Exactly when it displayed Buffer Empty the playback stopped. This makes sense... Is there any work-around to prevent it from flushing the buffer?

    I looked at your link and noticed that your player clipped off the last 1 or 2 seconds (in FF 2.0.0.1). No such problem in IE 7.0.57).

    But what is most disturbing to me is that I could see the buffering graphic in the center of the player flashing all the way through. It flashed on and off about once per second in FF and once per 2 seconds in IE...all the way through the entire movie. I guarantee this is not my internet connection. I'm on a T1 line.

    BTW... this is not just you. I'm having the same exact problems with my own 5MB videos. I'm using JW FLV Player 3.13. I hope someone can work out these annoying little bugs soon, because I'm tearing my hair out.

    from the readme: http://www.jeroenwijering.com/extras/readme.html bc.. If the progressbar isn't running with your FLV file, or if your video dimensions are messed-up, your FLV file doesn't have correct metadata inserted. You can fix this by using the small tool available at www.buraks.com/flvmdi/

  • I have the same problem and I'm on a MacBook Leopard, so I don't know why this is happening. Before, it rarely occurs, but now, even though I load the page again, it doesn't clear. So, I thought that if I left it for the whole night, it would finish loading. Sadly, it didn't finish loading, and just said that it was full but stopping at about 2 minutes into the video, it stopped, acting like it had gone through the whole video.

    It also happens to Macs so it probably is more likely to be a server problem, since if it was a program, it wouldn't happen to a Mac since most applications only run on PCs.

    BUT - when I embed a video on my website, it plays perfectly. No hangups at all. This leads me to believe that the problem may actually be with the Youtube site itself.

    I know this isn't a total solution, but it does work. Anybody can set up a simple website at http://jottit.com (free) and embed all the vids you like, and they'll work.

Flash Video MX is looking into it. I sent the link I published it on, to a couple of friends and it stalls on their computers also. I've searched everywhere in google, and this is the first place I've seen that has the same problem. I tried "Anderson's" player also, and it still stalls in the same spot.

  • You can see that it returns to time 00:00 but it stops there, doesn't want to play anymore, and I can't explain why it goes back to 0.

  • it's your server, probably gzipping flv files

    if i play your video #4 from your site, the % loaded doesn't work and the video fails after a few seconds

    if i play your video #4 from my server (Apache), everything is ok

  • is there an answer to the problem of the video only playing about 30 seconds of a 4 minute video

  • rascal, how can the server be doing that to one file but not the others? I question that excuse. I've had longer files in this player and didn't have the problem.

    And, if I play this flv in another player from the same place, it doesn't happen?

  • One other thing:

    If I refresh my page and go to play the file, it sometimes will play up to two minutes before the percent number starts flashing (this is after the file has completely loaded) and then the old ten-second countdown starts and the file stops playing.

  • And, finally rascal, if the server is doing this gzipping thing, how do I get it to stop?

    it's pretty useless to say blithely, "Oh it's dadda dah dah..." with no suggestion of how to make the fix...

  • Have the same problem: it downloads the youtube video (or other site flash video)but it plays only 2-3 sec. And sometimes it plays the video but without sound. I'm using Opera browser 9.5, with Internet Explorer it works fine.
    I use AMD 64 X2 4200, Asus motherboard, Ati Radeon 2600Pro videocard, onboard soundcard 7.1, Kaspersky 7 antivirus, Utorrent, Strong DC, conected to Internet with router.

  • I have problems with large files over 30mb (110mb typical size) where the player seems to have a built in playback limit of 10 minutes, but I can not find the parameters to change this to 1hr 33mins playback or 120mb playback.

    I have searched and search and that is how I ended up here (none the wiser)

    running on linux server with apache

  • The issue it turns as mentioned many times is the metadata in the file. I wrongly assumed the flv transcoder I was using had this built in (it is not). So upon a huge search of the net it seems one of the better mpg2 [over 2gb file sizes] to flv converters is from the people at ImToo (google it).

    @Andersen - thanks for the help and pointers above.

  • i have the same problem, flash player seems to load movies two or three seconds in, then the bar fills up and says its fully loaded when its not...

    the person who said get a mac needs to find a way out off his own arse. my friend has the same problem on his imac...

  • I am having this same issue. Does anyone know what the solution is? Seems Kiwi has found something, but I am having a hard time understanding it.

    Thanks.

  • It seems to me that my problem may have to do w/ disk space on my main harddrive. It seemed to happen only on longer videos. I noticed that I was almost out of HD space. I cleaned out some useless programs and this seemed to have cleared it up.

  • what fixed it for me was this.

    I had a bad ethernet cable to my router, i replaced it.

    and i reinstalled Flvplayer

    and that fixed it for me.
