Just wondering if anyone else is having trouble with downloading QuickTime videos from frodoandsam.net recently. Can't remember when I first started getting this problem but with any longish video clips when I play them back they will just go so far and then stop - there's a load noise and a message saying QT has encountered a problem. I can play back any videos I downloaded before this started. I have done all my QT updates so its not that. This is such a pity as they have so many great videos and most of them are QT. I don't get any problem with their WMP or RP vids. Will appreciate any suggestions.

Hi Pauline.

It's Blossom from KD here.

Sorry I can't be of much help, but I thought I'd let you know that I've had the same problem.

I downloaded some clips from frodoandsam.net of the hobbit-boys on some US show (possibly TRL?) talking about ROTK - the one where a girl won a competition to travel to all the premieres around the world. There were several clips to download, and some of them were OK, but a few stopped part-way through with a loud buzzing noise.
The same thing happened on the end-credits clip of Saturday Night Live - where Elijah (looking absolutely delicious in that cap! It really suited him, I think) and the rest of the cast ware skating at the ice-rink.

I confess to keeping what I had of the last one - Elijah on ice was way too cute to delete!

I haven't a clue as to the reason why the problem occurred. Some of the clips are hosted by other sites to save FandS.net's bandwidth, so perhaps the fault is at their end. Sorry again I can't help, but at least you know it's not just you!

Take care.

Chris ~ Blossom

Hi Blossom - nice to hear from you:) Its good to know the problem isn't with my pc or anything like that & I do have a vague recollection of someone else mentioning this some time back. Its very strange - I wonder if they're aware of it. I haven't tried emailing them as I'm sure I read somewhere that they can't help with any downloading problems. Lets hope it gets cleared up eventually.
I've been reading all the great Faculty messages, so many since the Oscars (11!! wasn't that great!) & hope to post there again as soon as I get a chance. Thanks for letting me know that I'm not alone (not alone - tee hee!!) with this problem:)
