#42 "Loading Playlist..."


Alright quick rundown,

It worked one week ago on a strictly HTML website encased in frames to handle the refresh.

Now, I have ported the slim XSPF player over to a ASP.NET site placing the player within a pop-up HTML window (the same window that was the frame in the old site) off the main masterpage.

When i view the website via my localhost using the exact same playlist file as before and same the embed tags it works perfectly.

When i FTP it all up to the live site it just sits there saying "Loading Playlist..."

I figured it might be have load time issues so I removed all but one 2mb track from the playlist and I am goin on about 40 minutes now with that setup and it still says "Loading Playlist..."

I have tried a million different paths for the tracks and the playlist_url and I either get "undefined" or "Loading Playlist..."

- [Site Root]
- xspfPlayer_slim.html
- xspfPlayer_slim.swf
- xspfPlayer_slim.as
- [playlist]
- playlist.xspf
- [trackFolder]
Could you please help me out on this one? I loved the player before and after my redesign and converting to .NET it would really look great now. Any assistance would be MUCH appreciated.

Thanks Much.

    Did you try checking the CHMod settings for the MP3 files? Mine by default were set wrong after I uploaded them for some reason.

    If your server is running IIS make sure the mime type xspf - application/xspf+xml is in the list... This was my fix as IIS6 was blocking xspf downloads...

    I am having the same problem. I can link to a specific file and it plays just fine, but if I link to the play-list, it doesn't play. I don't have access to IIS because this is a shared hosting account. Any ideas?

    Try renaming xspf extension to xml. Your server may not recognise/parse xspf. Rename both the file and the embed tag script in both places. If that don't work, remove the
    "?playlist_url=http://site.com/music/playlist.xml" completely, just to see if it will load the factory playlist. If it does, this means that you have the same problem as me.
    Good Luck...
