Description of the problem: Hello, I encountered the following problem: for the last two weeks I’ve been running a new experiment (after 2 very similar, successfully running ones). This experiment contains 6 different videos (each 54 Sec in total). Since 3 days there have been problems, though, with running video files. Before, everything worked fine.
Now, participants are either not able to download the files, then comes the following error message:
"Unfortunately we encountered the following error:
-when downloading the resources for experiment …
-unable to download resource: videos/Car.mp4(FILE_LOAD_ERROR)
In other cases, the files are downloaded, the experiment runs normally, except that some video files get stuck. Once it even happened that the same video was shown instead of all the others (when usually each video is shown only once) = means, that when actually video 2 then 3 then 4… should have been shown, it was always video 1.
This has happened to all participants since 3 days, but for me the experiment runs fine on both my laptops (one being a lenovo thinkpad, one a macbook; one being the source laptop, one a random one)
I tried to track back what could have happened 3 days ago to suddenly cause these errors. Maybe it’s connected to the fact that one student of mine was in charge, but got lost on the github page. As far as I can see, though, nothing has been changed there.
Let me know, if you need more information.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice!
