Hi, I'm having some technical problems with listening to the ats-mix.
I am using Firefox on Linux, so I guess I am in a minority here, but I will explain the problem.
When I first tried to use ats-mix, I got a message about not having a correct plugin to deal with the player. So I installed the vlc plugin.
Unfortunately this plugin wouldn't allow me to rewind or pause or anything useful like that, and also caused a few crashes. So I next changed to the
mplayer plugin. This gave me some buttons like pause, and I think had the potential to rewind too, but it only plays audio while the ats-mix window
is on top, which means I can't do anything else while it plays.
My suggestion would be to also provide a proper direct URL link to the mp3 file, so that people can download the file and listen to it in their own
player. I don't see a reason for not doing this really, as anyone with a little technical know-how can find the real URL if they want to. I have
done this a couple of times now to get the mp3 file, but am a little unsure about doing this, I'm not sure if this may be technically "against the
rules". Also, with this solution it is fine for those of us who know how to do this, but newbies or non technical users may not know how to do
So my two questions are this.
1) Can you provide a direct link to the mp3 files for people who have trouble with the player?
2) Is it acceptable for people to bypass the player and just download the mp3?
