Hi,

suddenly the uploader does not work on my laptop. When I specified MC and file and click on "start upload", after a while the browser shoes a line like:

[{"name":"larmeinekampfschrift_09_lessing_128kb.mp3","size":13629.39,"type":"audio\/mpeg","url":".\/uploads\/lorda\/larmeinekampfschrift_09_lessing_128kb.mp3","delete_url":"https:\/\/librivox.org\/uploads\/lorda\/larmeinekampfschrift_09_lessing_128kb.mp3","delete_type":"DELETE"}]

I tried different browsers (Chrome, Firefox), I emptied cache and removed cookies, rebooted, reconnected to the uploader - nothing helped.
On the same network at home I can however upload from my phone.

Any ideas? :shock:

Regards

hello Claus

in fact, it shows that you have uploaded it 14 times today and on the 26th. :shock: So I don't know what error message that was, but it uploaded correctly I think. Here is the last link: https://librivox.org/uploads/lorda/larmeinekampfschrift_09_lessing_128kb.mp3 does it work ?

Yes, that's the latest version. Anyway I forgot to mention, that the upload indicator does not show up. So it looks as if nothing is happening until that message is shown.

I have really no idea why that is, and why it still uploads nevertheless. :hmm: Maybe someone more tech-savvy will have an explanation and hopefully a solution to the problem.

Do you get the final URL, or just that RegEx text mess?

What OS do you have? And I assume you have fairly recent browser versions?

I specify the fille to upload, my MC and click the "upload" button. Then after a while and without any change in the website, no indicator, the browser shows a white page with only that text message.
Im on linux/debian. My system is up to date. I tried chrome, firefox and chromium browsers.
I remember that my java/open jdk was updated. Maybe a downgrade may do it? At least I read "java" in the upliaders html source...

Thanks for the additional information. I'll pass it on to those who will know better than I. 8-)

Maybe your java update activated some noscript add-ons or something like that. If that's the case, you can white list the Librivox uploader

I downgraded to the previous openjdk jre version without success. I also did whitelist lv in chrome, which didn't help either.

I can, however upload by phone. I'll find out...

The files still get through from your laptop, it's just that the result script does not show correctly.

So if you see a message like

[{"name":"larmeinekampfschrift_09_lessing_128kb.mp3","size":13629.39,"type":"audio\/mpeg","url":".\/uploads\/lorda\/larmeinekampfschrift_09_lessing_128kb.mp3","delete_url":"https:\/\/librivox.org\/uploads\/lorda\/larmeinekampfschrift_09_lessing_128kb.mp3","delete_type":"DELETE"}]

the link would work by removing the inverted slashes as https://librivox.org/uploads/lorda/larmeinekampfschrift_09_lessing_128kb.mp3

Another question would be: do you have any browser plug-ins? I have no trouble while using uBlock Origin, but if you've got something else that might alter things, I'd try disabling that as well.

Most people probably don't have plug-ins, but most people I meet don't have both Chrome and Firefox on their PC. :wink:

The behaviour occurred all of the sudden without having installed plugins or changing the installations of browsers. I have them installed because I check the appearence of my web page with them. That never was a problem with the uploader and still works on my work laptop with debian 11 (...this one's on 12).
I'll still try to find out the reason and let you know :D

Claus I am puzzled by the error message that this would contain an type: audio "mpeg" file. Checking online it means it has video artefacts contained. Are you converting to normal mp3 in a program like Audacity or how do you do it ? And did this recently change ?

Out on a hunch I downloaed this file from Bernd's folder, changed nothing and reuploaded to my folder. I did not get this error message, so it seems to be specific to your computer or browser. :hmm: I hope one day we find a solution.

...today I made an upload and the uploader page showed up like it used to (...firefox in this case). I swear I didn't change anything at all :shock:

Thanks for your help!

Hi Sonia,

I do it the "audacity way"; "Export as mp3", nothing special. And "mp3" means MPEG1 Layer 3 - so "audio mpeg" should be o.k. in my opinion.
