Some trailers are not downloaded

Jun 20, 2014 at 6:00 PM
Hi,
I just installed your program and is really great. One thing that I have noted is that some trailers are not downloaded, files are created but there is nothing inside, is possible to solve this issue?. Another one: how can I disable the 3D trailers option? dont have 3D so is not need it.
thanks in advance

Hi ijourneaux,

I think jorsan might be referring to trailers that are downloading from Yahoo trailers. I noticed after updating to 2.3.5, when the program attempts to download trailers with URL's such as:

http://www.hd-trailers.net/yahoo-redir.php?id=f3903a42-50e8-38e7-837d-35e614f5658e&resolution=720
http://www.hd-trailers.net/yahoo-redir.php?id=23b3735e-ba58-3ac0-83bc-7bfdbe32c418&resolution=720
etc

the trailer file is 0kb.

The log seems to indicate the trailer has downloaded, but the download is 0kb.

Eg, you can see below the download completes in 1 second:

Hmmm. For a second, I thought I wasn't going to be able to replicate. The problem doesn't seem to affect all Yahoo trailers. I will dig into it later today.

Update
Ok. This is going to be a little more involved. Yahoo has changed the way they are reporting the length of trailers. It could be similar to what YouTube (where I do have a workaround). It shouldn't be too difficult but want to make sure I understand the problem and implement a correct fix.

Earlier version of the HDTrailer.Net Downloader just skipped over the problematic trailers rather than trying to download them.

Update 2
The error is with the HD-Trailers.Net Downloader RSS Feed. I have sent them a bug report. I am trying to confirm a work around.

Update 3
I heard back from HD-Net Trailers. This is a result of a change in the behavior of the Yahoo hosted trailers so I am going to have to address the problem. If I don't have an easy solution, I will upload a version that will not create the zero byte files.

Ok but there are trailers with OKB files for sure
