  • Defcon 17 videos

    Hey guys, couldn't figure out where to post this so sorry if it's the wrong section.

    Is anyone else having trouble viewing the Defcon 17 presentations? It seems I can't load them and sometimes can't even connect to the media.defcon.com server.

    er, .org you mean?

    What is the error? I'll check logs but I do see a lot of traffic of the videos being downloaded.

    One test is to try the download http, then https and see if one is giving you errors.

      Right, sorry .org.

      It doesn't show an error most of the time, it just won't load if I open it in the browser (firefox/chrome) and if I try to download it, it disconnects in minutes. Sometimes it simply shows the "Connecting to media.defcon.org" status until it times out. I was able to listen to a little bit of one of the audio ones yesterday and on Sunday I was able to watch 1 presentation until this problem started happening.

      It could just be me but the aforementioned Sunday I watched the video, left and came back a mere 3 hours later to watch another one when it would not load. There were no changes to my comp and nothing but the browser was running so I am just wondering if this is isolated to me or if others are experiencing difficulty too.

      I tried the http/https switch to no avail. Once I switched to https, it would not connect and is not connecting now on any link.

            sorry about that.

            doesn't seem to be much change. It no longer stays at "Connecting..." but it is still not loading, almost as if the download speed is being severely limited to a crawl perhaps.
