Podcast Error

Posted By On February 17, 2005 @ 3:13 pm In Blog | No Comments

Something munged the KFI podcast and showed hour two of 2/13 as missing. It’s not. I apologize for the confusion. I’ve removed Feedburner from the loop. There’s no need to update your podcast client – the address remains http://leoville.tv/podcasts/kfi.

Update: it’s not Feedburner’s fault – apologies. It seems to have something to do with Coral [1] – the P2P caching servers I’m using. A good podcast client should keep trying until it gets the file. Or download it directly from http://leoville-downloads.com/airchecks/20050213-2.mp3. As always, you’ll find direct links to my radio show audio at http://leoville.tv/radio/pmwiki.php/Main/AudioArchives – sorry about all this. Just remember podcasting is a new medium and there are still some kinks to be worked out.

After further investigation, it appears that Coral received a 404 (file missing error) from my server when it first requested the file. The 404 was cached and propagated to all the other Coral servers. Michael Freedman, Mr. Coral, is going to fix it so servers only cache 404s for five minutes from now on. We’re helping to make Coral better! Now to figure out why my server 404ed Coral in the first place!

    Hi Leo!

    As a faithful Screen Savers watcher (until recently) I was thrilled to find out you were podcasting when I got my new portable MP3 player for Christmas and started rooting around for something “legal” to listen to :)

    Keep up the great work, I’ve always enjoyed the way you treat your listeners/viewers as having some basic intelligence, rather than “dumbing down” the show to the lowest common denominator.

    To keep this on-topic: the URL you gave above is still not working…

    It gives (as of 11:00EST):
    “The requested URL /airchecks/kfi was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. “

    Windows Media Player apparently doesn’t handle the MP3Pro format – try MusicMatch or WinAmp. Meanwhile, I’ve stopped encoding in MP3Pro so all the newer shows should play fine. Sorry about that.

    Leo I have a question for you. How can I download all of the previous Laporte Report files?

    Hey Leo… I’m listening to Hour 3 of Sundays show right now and as you kept telling Constance, Stop saying you’re sorry. You’re doing great stuff and I’m sure we can all work through this with you.

    Take Care

    I’m just glad to have your radio show available as a podcast, please keep up the good work and work out the kinks as you can.

    gave it a day or two the podcast links that connect to Leoville.tv are working perfectly now but the ones in TLR seem to still be suffering a 404. Hope that it is because of my ISP’s cashing if anything and not the page.

    Leo check out the New York Times. My only complaint is that they did not mention your podcast: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/02/19/technology/19podcasting.html?ex=1109480400&en=5428304c6fb7b62f&ei=5070
