HELP!! Flash movies not loading! Jun. 20th, 2003 @ 03:17 PM Reply

Howdy

Got me a problem...

Whenever i try to load a vast majority of flash movies or games, they start to load, get a few Kb loaded and then all modem activity ceases completely.. its a pain in the backside cause i cant check out most of the stuff here

I have flash 6, cookies enabled, all active x controls and stuff set to enable, and try at all different times of day (to check that its not server load), and nothing seems to work...NOTHING!!

HELP PLEASE!!

well, i woulda said that, although heres the thing that worries me....

some movies (for example newsgroundillaz 2v2, which is over 3 meg) worked fine...

otherwise i would have come to that conclusion.
while i appreciate your posts, you're telling me what i already suspect, seeing as how i exhausted all the no-brainer options.. i may be a n00b to newgrounds, i'm not stupid :P

that said, do you have any ideas on what it COULD be? instead of just telling me its my comp

(f.y.i. yes i do have a pretty crap pc, but why would high res / big flash movies work, and practically everything else not.... any MODS able to help on this one?)

kthx

Try clearing out your 'temporary internet files' folder occasionally, that may help you

If after a while, clearing out your temporary internet files using disk cleanup or the internet options, follow these steps:

If you have Internet Explorer:
1) Click on "Tools."
2) In the "Tools" menu, click on the bottom option, "Internet Options...."
3) In the newly opened window, click on the far right tab that reads, "Advanced."
4) In "Advanced," scroll down to the selections under "Security."
5) Make sure that the check box next to "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed" is checked. If it is not checked, then click on the check box.
6) Click Apply.
7) Click OK.

From then on, whenever you need to empty your temporary internet files, all you need to do is close your broswer. Then, just open another browser to continue surfing the internet. Hope this helps.

Yeah, I've been having the same probs. Movies stop loading halfway though. A new problem popping up is that the voting bar won't load. I've been emptying Temp files like mad and restarted several times. I've got a good computer, so I can't really understand the problem.

Sometimes you just have to let it load, but it didn't load for me one time no long how I waited. i just screwed aroiund with my computer settings....restarted it...and it worked. I can't remember what i did though.

righto.. first things first

lee, you really really need to read the entire topic before u post mate, if you had you woulda seen that i already cleaned out my temp dir..

i may be a newsground noob but i'm not stupid

secondly, whichever one of u said ditch dialup...
no
just... no

unlike alot of people who use the internet i have to PAY for my net connection with money that i earn, i dont have parents or whatever to pay for that for me, and with broadband buggy / expensive in AUS, you can bet your arse i wont be getting it any time soon. Better computer comes first dude.

The whole point of my post was to ask mods / ppl who run this site if they had any ideas, and i also tried to do exhaust all possible options before coming here seeing as how some people cant think that far ahead.

While i appreciate the help / responses given, its just more of the same crap over and over and yes while my pc is a piece of shit, it seems to be able to handle flash from practically ANY other site which led me to believe it was newgrounds itsself, not my comp

hopefully this can all be resolved and we can go back to watching all the cool shit on this site

Cheers

you guys might as well ditch your crappy modem and get dsl! i have no problems loading, i get a movie loaded every now and then (even peak hours) but it will give me up to 21kb a sec to download. and in offpeak, 72-85kb a sec. and heck i don't even need to clear my temp files. well i would try off-peak hours which is 7:00 p.m - 8:00 a.m PST in my area. good luck!

Unfortunately, it does seem that everyone that's been having problems with loading movies does have 56k. And a good point was brought up that I recently just discovered last night as well: all other flash related sites have absolutely no problems with loading flash movies or other related material. Which brought me to believe also that the problem doesn't lie with my computer. On another bad note, the problem continues to carry on today as well (it's been three days) and I'm just not getting any flash movies loaded...at all. I can't even get 300k movies loaded, that's just sad. But seriously, people that are saying "ditch dialup" gimme a break. Do you really think narrowband users love the slow connection? Honestly, if we had the means to "ditch dialup", we'd have done so a long time ago. I've never had problems with dl movies on NG with narrowband before, so my question is why now? I really hope the problem get's fixed or at least addressed soon :\

I have to say one one hand I hate that no movies under about 50kb load, but I'm also glad I'm not the only one. I do have AOL dialup, and I got used to waiting 15-25 mins for the average 750kb Flash. But it sucks even more when you can't see anything at all. My thought is that maybe newgrounds has so many broadband members that the narrowband members are starting to get cut out. Seeing as newgrounds already has a ton of its own bandwidth, it probably won't be increased a noticable amount. I'm starting to think that inevitably the dialup people are going to be "forced out the door," so to speak. Either we find an alternative to dial up, or we may not be able to do anything on newgrounds.

I'm going on day 4 of the same thing, what update are you talking about???? I really hope the issue gets fixed, I may be a dial-up user, but I've put a decent amount of help and info in for other NG users; I'm semi-useful, dammit! Naw, but seriously, you have any more info on this update?

Note: there already is a topic about this called "strange..."

Yes there is another topic on this, i started it cause i thought it was only be abd stupid AOL. the newground heads should really look into this one.

BTW How many of you that are having these problems are on a dial up connection? and how many are on cable or DSL?
