IncomingNumbers5643 19th November 2012 21:32 is down/keeping streams from working
I was watching a stream when suddenly the player called, which is constantly being reset as of right now.

It keeps attempting to load from there and keeps failing and the stream freezes up into a slideshow. Reloading the player or even the whole browsers doesn't fix this, only completely shutting down and restarting the server seems to make the player stop attempting to call extondemand, and even then just for a little while, then it starts up again.

Whats going on here?

What channel are you watching when you experience this behavior? Could you provide a screenshot of this so we can get a better idea of what exactly is occurring?

The channel where this is occurring for me is, a stream I've watched pretty regularly for a long time.

It seems to occur when the Auto Pilot cues a video, as if I happened to load up the site when it is already live I am spared the problem. However if it does happen it will continue to happen even if the channel goes live.

When it happens the status bar reports that it is waiting for, repeatedly flashing this message forever. The player doesn't start streaming (no video or sound), but does load preview image data as well as ads. The loading circle on the player remains visible during all this.

Once in a great while it will manage to connect to extondemand and actually play a autopilot video, but it's a one off thing and goes right back to hanging on as soon as the next video is due to be loaded. If machine is hard reset the problem sometimes goes away, but reappears 10 or 20 minutes down the road the first time the player calls extondemand.

I'll get a snapshot when I can, but I've described it better than it could.

It's not adblock plus doing it. I've gotten the same message with it disabled globally.

P.S. Sorry for using Adblock Plus

Edit: happens without any extensions for that matter
