Links to other people's MP3 Pages


Note: You may run across a page that does not have its web server set up correctly. If so, clicking on a .mp3 file will start a text file transfer. If you use Netscape, a text transfer of binary data produces garbage on the screen. If you try to save to file by shift-clicking or right-clicking, the file will be saved as a text file (garbage as far as Winplay3 is concerned). Netscape users have little recourse except to complain to the keepers of these sites. Internet Explorer users fare better: they don't seem to have a problem downloading files from these sites. If you pale at the thought of junking Netscape for Microsoft's offering, and are very intent on playing or saving that clip, you can use Winplay3 to connect directly to the URL by using the 'Play Location' menu item. Be sure to play the .mp3 file, not the referring .m3u file. If you use a PC, you might find useful a small MS-DOS program called uncook.exe written by Jussi Vainionpää (Kiitoksia avusta) to remove the line feeds from a file downloaded from one of these problem sites. The syntax for this program is "uncook input.mp3 output.mp3"

The webmaster has several options to correct the problem: he can link to an FTP server instead of to an HTTP server, he can 'zip' the file (which most web servers will handle properly), he can use a CGI script to handle the transfer transaction, he can acknowledge the problem and tell you to use Internet Explorer or Winplay3 directly (not a satisfactory solution in my view), or the best way is simply to add the .mp3, .m3u, and .mp3url MIME mappings to his server configuration file. Refer to Fraunhofer's site for examples of what to add for certain servers (I emailed my ISP, who uses the Apache server, and he added the extensions, no sweat). Sites that have not been properly configured are designated in the Description section in red.
