Are you sure you have the correct version?
You could try removing the Flash player completely and then reinstalling the latest version.

I don't know if this is a bug or not, but I don't think any lists in the Audio Portal have been updated, and usually they update every Wednesday.

How exactly do those lists work anyway?

How would we know when we get reviews? Would that be implemented into the Notification button on the top? or rid of altogether? Thanks.

Yes, I updated to the version that I was linked to from the song's page.

clear cache? Are you using chrome?

I tried installing and then clearing the cache, and I may as well try that again, but it didn't work last time. I'm on Firefox right now.

If you are having trouble uploading an MP3, could you e-mail it to me at mike@newgrounds.com?

Adobe unfortunately dropped support for Mac OS X Leopard (10.5), so if you're using an older Mac, you unfortunately can't update to Flash Player 11. :( The audio portal is designed to fallback with an HTML5 audio tag in this case, but this doesn't work in Firefox -- it can't play MP3 files due to licensing issues.

I'm going to put a Flash Player 10 compatible fallback in the very near future, but in the meantime you can try using a different browser, like Safari or Chrome.

I just threw a fix up for the MP3 uploads -- if you were having trouble uploading MP3s before, try now and see if it works. If you're still having problems, please let me know!

Nobody else with that problem?
I think the old audio player on newgrounds was much better! The old one didn't falter and rattle.
I am using Windows XP (32 Bit) and the newest flash player (deleted the old one and installed the new one).

Often, the sound rattles when you are in another windows (of your browser) or another tab.
Yep, the old audio player was better. Never change a running system....

There should be a function to switch between the new and the old audio player.

I've noticed that when I try to change my display name to show my first and last name, or just my first name, neither shows. The option remains selected after I save my settings, however on my submissions my name does not show in my author information.

I have a really bad bug when listening to audio, when playing the sound glitches and it kind of repeats the same sound sample over and over for a couple of seconds, it does this very often, and on every song I try to listen to, any advice? At first I thought the song I was listening to was just bad electronic music but I tried listening to something from the "classical" section and get the same kind of sound..

I'm on Linux Mint 11 64bit using Firefox 10.0.2

I don't think an option to remove audio is too much to ask for.

Known glitch. It personally only happens to me when I'm doing stuff in other tabs or loading new pages.

I don't know if the staff's planning on fixing it or not.

Hey!
I have a bug where my project wouldn't publish properly for a while, but after randomly trying over and over it eventually published.

HOWEVER,

The page of the audio track now only loads about 50% of the time the URL is entered. You'll get an error page, but keep refreshing and it eventually works properly. Very mysterious! This happens on my most recently uploaded track, which you can check the bug on.

This bug is confirmed by others checking out that particular track in another thread.

I had this happen to me... sort of... as well. When uploading my latest track, I went through "Audio -> Submit Yours! -> Picked the song MP3, entered all the usual info -> Preview -> Publish -> Error page saying the page could not be found."

However, I went to my profile after getting the error page and the song was there anyways, and I haven't had any problems playing it back.

Not sure if you can figure anything out about it now, seeing as it was just a little burp in the system it seems, but in case there's some coding behind the submission or something that helps, this is the song I got the error page on:

  • -Angel Fall-
    -Angel Fall- by Back-From-Purgatory

    Trance, rock/metal hybrid... first of possibly more.

As a note, I've submitted 2 or 3 songs since the redesign, and this is the only one that gave me the error page.

I think it's because you can flip through all the pages of reviews without going to a separate page anymore.

The audio edit page isn't actually an "official" page (that's why it looks a bit messy, there are totally random smileys on the left of each submission, etc...).

So yeah, some of the links there don't actually work. The staff definitely know about it and are in the process of fixing it, along with making notifications which tell you when you get a new review so you won't even need that page any more.
