It's not really an "error", but I noticed that five out of nine readers have a block of Chinese text on the listing of Recuerdo on archive.org: https://archive.org/details/recuerdo_librivox

Does anyone know what's happening there?

I think there is a bug in Archive's utility they use to produce other audio formats (I only noticed it with the 64 kbps mp3 files) which puts garbage in some MP3 tags. That garbage when interpreted as unicode text, looks like Chinese.

Yep. Pain in the rear, but aside from downloading them all, fixing the tags, and re-uploading them, there's not much we can do about it. It is that way on a lot of projects.

I don't think it does it anymore; I think it was just for a while that it did that.

Thanks; that's a relief.
