XMMS Problem Streaming MP3/M3U Files: Solved!

# Filed on Mar 26, 2006 by Anthony DiSante 4 replies

For the past few months, I haven’t been able to play streaming MP3s (via M3U files) in XMMS.

I’m not sure exactly when it started, but at some point it started reporting the message "Error: server said HTTP/1.1 200 OK" whenever I clicked on a website link to an M3U file.  Which is bizarre, since the text of the error reports that the request status was OK (code 200).

Other times, on different websites or different M3U files, XMMS would just lock up instead of printing that error message.

I’ve done some brief searching to try to find a solution, but never spent that much time on it.  Tonight I got so fed up and spent an hour searching: googling, looking up XMMS bugs, etc.  Finally I found the solution on the Gentoo forums: you have to disable the "MAD MPEG Decoder plugin" in the XMMS Preferences.

Thanks for looking! You spent an hour but you saved me from spending it too. So, the least I can do is spend 10 minutes to thank you.
It is remarkable how you get increasingly fed up with small anoyances like this one with the playlists. But, if you ’re determined to solve it, then absolotely no problem can resist you indefinately...

I want to thank you for your efforts on Userbase. It has become an integral part of our business and has allowed us to branch out and begin using automation on a lot of our processes. Userbase has become the gateway to advancement for our company's processes for our clients and employees.
FileChucker is helping drive the backend of several high profile entertainment sites for people like Shania Twain and Dolly Parton.  We're also using it to drive backend file uploads for a multi-billion dollar banking institution.  It's a great product.  We've tried other "chucking" upload solutions with progress bars using flash and php, but nothing works as reliably as FileChucker.

The work, the thought and the organization you put into this app is incredible.
– Bruce C.
I just want to say you guys really stand alone in that you have a quality product and you provide genuine customer service.  It's sad but those qualities are seldom found separately, much less together.  Thanks again for your time and help.

Nice script, it's saving the day on our project.

I looked all over trying to find a simple cgi script.  I found that FileChucker was by far the best.  If you have issues with your hosting service's php.ini max upload size then this is the way to go.  Looking forward to future enhancements.

FileChucker is a great drop-in solution for file uploads, and worth every penny of its very reasonable cost.  Encodable's support is excellent to boot.
– Loren A.
I just wanted to say that yours is the first product that I've tested so far that hasn't failed on handling uploads.  This is going to work for a print company, so they are handling nothing but large files and all the other solutions I've tried so far have not been reliable.  So far yours has been 100% successful in my tests.

Thank you VERY much for all of your help.  You've really impressed me.  We have support agreements for other software that costs thousands of dollars / year (just for the support), and most of them aren't as helpful as you have been.
– Keith Y.
FileChucker is working great...  Clients love it.  Vendors love it.  We love it.
– Gerry W.
I just installed the demo of your product and got it up and running in no time.  I searched high and low for a decent login script and thank God I found yours.
– Adrian F.
Why didn't I just do this from the get-go?  So much easier.  Thanks for your work.  FileChucker makes my work easier.
– Dominic M.
You've done a wonderful job with FileChucker and UserBase, and they have made a big difference to how our website runs.

Do you know how rare it is to have a "canned" shopping cart that can easily do complex pricing options on a single item?  Basically, they don't exist!  I have looked.  Everywhere!  And the few that might even come close to CornerStore's functionality cost a fortune!
– Tashina P.
Just one word: Fantastic.  10-minute job to plug FileChucker into my app, and it now works a treat.  It's through the hard work by people like yourselves that make my job so much easier.  Congratulations on an outstanding product... Many many thanks.
– Sean F.
Thanks again for a great product and great support - beyond expectations.
– Greg S.
Our members think your software is fantastic...  I would recommend your software and your company to anyone.  Thanks for all your help.  It has been a pleasure dealing with you.

The amount of customization in the program is incredible.  I was able to integrate it into my existing page layout relatively simply.  I was also able to easily customize the look/feel to match the current site.
