|I am getting the 404 swf on nearly all of the flashes on this site. These two are just ones picked at random from the ones I've tried to view. Not sure why. I've viewed several of the 404'd before with no problems, but I've tried at least 30 and gotten 404 on all but like 2 or 3.|

|Thanks a lot guys, I think I've fixed it now. Please try getting the flashes again and see if it works.|
What browser and adblocker plugin do you use? Do the ads actually show up after you unblocked them but you still get the "please unblock"-message?

Ever since the advertisements, viewing flash online is impossible,
Even if I disable the pop up blocker it still won't let me view flashes.
|>>||!///SWFAnts #ADMIN# 1sep2012(sa)14:33 No.4402 SWF |P16R13
On Android phones you mean? I thought Adobe removed support for Flash on Android, they even took down the working flash reader that they had on Google Play (for some completely retarded reason, I don't get why they are dropping flash on cell phones, they could have at least left the old version up you'd think). You must be one of the lucky ones that still has flash installed from before.
>Ever since the advertisements
Do you mean that the new ads are in the way of letting you view the flashes or do you get the "please unblock the ads" message even though nothing is blocked? Guessing the earlier one, that since the screen is so small you can't close the ads. One easy solution is to wait three seconds and then refresh the page, the ads should then be gone because they don't show up on all page views (if your phone saves cookies). I will look into this later though and see if I can cook up a better solution than this workaround.

|Issues with downloading|
If I try and download from Google Chrome then the download page loads but there is no pictures or formatting. However if I load via Chromes Incognito mode, there IS the pictures and formatting, but I get an ad-blocker error. I've tried clearing the cache, and that isn't working. I also tried Firefox, and I get the Ad-blocker error. I even tried running it via a proxy (www.proxfree.com) and the formatting loads, but the images do not. Please help!

|I really am wondering why it's not working for some people, I guess it's possible that adultadworld serves different script files for some people or maybe even that some ISP has blocked them.|
For now I capitulate, I'll make the adblocker-blocking less strict until I have time to figure something better out. Let me know if you still get the "please unblock"-message.

The comment on the post, about how this was detected to be one flash, when it really is not that flash.
|>>||!///SWFAnts #ADMIN# 19sep2012(we)04:03 No.4550 SWF |P27R24
This was due to an old relic of a function in ancient code from before the relatively new and much more reliable system the site uses to distinguish between flashes.
It's been fixed, from now on a flash should no longer be able to be associated with the wrong ID on the site. The flash you uploaded can be found here in the archive: http://swfchan.com/23/113365/?bakemonogatari+tsub asa+cat+nyan.swf
Unfortunately your thread is not connected with the flash on its wiki page, that is something I might have to fix in the future. If I ever get together the mentality to do it, it's gonna take a lot of work going through old threads and make sure they are on the right wiki page. Unless I figure out a way to automate it somehow, hmm...
Thanks for drawing my attention to this, if you hadn't said anything it might have been months before I noticed the problem myself.

|Error with site?|
This webpage is not available
Google Chrome could not load the webpage because files2.swfchan.com took too long to respond. The website may be down, or you may be experiencing issues with your Internet connection.
It seems that every single flash I try and click I can't load for whatever reason. It was working perfectly a few days ago now - nothing. I know it's not my internet because I can still go on other websites - I know it's not my Ip address because I've used proxies and they don't even work. I'm rather confused. - I added exceptions in my firewall for this site and I still keep getting these 118 errors so I'm getting close to giving up - sad because I really enjoy this site. Any helpful tips?
|>>||Nanonymous 11jun2013(tu)17:22 No.7032 T |P33R30
Hellfire, it seems that all porn is hosted on the files2.swfchan.com server. A few of us have been having the same problem. Pretty much this means that the files2 server went down a few days ago and until it comes back up, we can't view or download anything porn related. You'll just have to wait it out with the rest of us :(
|>>||!///SWFAnts #ADMIN# 12jun2013(we)17:33 No.7056 SWF |P34R31
|Sorry guys, just became aware of the problem. I will make an announcement about it on swfchan.com soon.|
I have changed the code to pull files from the main server until files2 has been fixed. It'll be too slow for many to even download anything but at least it's better than not working at all.
|>>||!///SWFAnts #ADMIN# 12jun2013(we)17:47 No.7058 SWF |P35
This just in: files2 is down! Sorry about not noticing sooner, something like this could only happen the ONE time I skip checking the site for a day. Here's the scoop: The power supply has died for the server host. The man is working on moving the files over to a new server but it takes time, especially since there is a lot of flooding over Europe at the moment which makes it difficult to travel around. For the moment, until files2 is fixed, all those files are pulled from the main server. This will probably mean it will crumble from all the extra activity, but maybe not? A lot of you will probably not be able to download these files successfully but it's better that it works for some than not work at all for all. I'll keep you posted when something new happens.

Have you gotten it working yet? Is anyone else having trouble with this one? It downloads for me, maybe you were just having a temporary problem (the files2 server could have been down). Please let me know if it still doesn't work for you!
Btw, do you get the flash "404.swf" telling you the link has expired or do you get a normal 404 message in text?

I don't know what could be wrong, maybe you can try uploading a WAV version in stereo of your seamless audio loop and see if that works? It was quite some time since I built the loopmaker now so it's not fresh in my memory and I don't have the time to look into it right now unfortunately. Sorry.

|It's fixed. The problem wasn't related to flash.asp, it was the application pool that shares swf files that had shut itself down because it had "failed" several times within a short time, for some reason. First time this happened, I'll increase the number of fails per minute required before it shuts down and hope it doesn't happen again.|

I am running on a comcast connection (100mb), but it takes SOOOO long to load a file that isn't even 3mb, say at least a minute, maybe a minute and a half and yet anything else I load/download takes less then 30 seconds on average. Don't know what the deal is, but this site has never been this slow, just since your server change. Anyways, just a heads up for ya and keep up the good work...
|>>||!///SWFAnts #ADMIN# 30apr2014(we)14:34 No.12807 SWF |P48R43
It hasn't been slow since the server change, just for the last 24 hours. At least from what I've noticed. We're having problems with the Internet, I'm only getting half of the bandwidth I should be getting and the bandwidth is at a constant 100% usage. It's a wonder the site can be used at all basically. Trying to fix it.

|Let loaders load!|
Finally figured out why preloaders wouldn't work in many flashes here on swfchan since the server change. This was a bit nutty.
It all came down to the response header from the server. It wasn't sending Content-Length! By default the server was configured to compress all files files before sending them in order to save bandwidth and make transfers a bit faster.
What happens is that a chunked transfer takes place; the response arrives in small chunks at a time. Upon a request the server immediately starts compressing the requested flash file and immediately starts sending it by flushing small chunks of the compressed data to the user's browser. Since the server doesn't know the final size of the compressed data it can't give any content length before the compression is finished. But by that time the response header has already been given and the swf file is already half-way across the Internet.
Turns out that without the Content-Length header the flash doesn't know its final file size during downloading. It surprised me since I always thought the swf format was clever enough to read its file size stored inside itself in its own header and not rely upon any response header. Hm, how does that even work anyway? Can it really access the content-length of the response header? Now I'm starting to wonder what the real issue was here...
Anyway, what solved this problem for swfchan was turning off compression on files1.swfchan.com and swfchan.org. Compression of swf files is most of the time not worth the effort since they are already pretty compact. But I am a bit disappoint in the flash since this is something that will get worse in the future since more and more servers will probably start compressing files by default and send them chunked. Unless the server software make built-in exceptions for swf files more and more preloaders will fail in the future and people might not understand why, this will create negative reputation for the great swf format.
Though most likely this can be solved within the plugin that play flash files since it sounds so bizarre that it actually needs a content-length header. At least I hope that is the case, for the format's sake. We want flash to still go strong on the web in 50 years, right?
Please note it can take a while before all "broken" preloaders goes away from swfchan, since many swf files are cached on CloudFlare (they are still without any content length). Everything should be fine in a day or two.

Always good to write stuff down so other people doesn't have to go through the same hassle. If they are fortunate enough to find this thread when they search the web that is. I didn't find any info about it anywhere myself even though I'm pretty sure I can't be the only one that have had this problem for his site.
