Description of the problem:
Hi - I’m super new to PsychoPy, Pavlovia, and coding in general. I just built an experiment in PsychoPy and it works perfectly there. But I sent it to Pavlovia and am getting different error messages every time. I’ve gotten multiple errors saying that they encountered an error when downloading resources for the experiment and would tell me that they were untable to download resources with multiple of my files (but each time I ran it different files would get that error code and there was no consistency). In addition, I got another weird error that said there was an error “when setting the movie of MovieStim: Instructions 2…” and then a string of letters and question mark characters.
Someone please help! (I think my code is public)
do you mind posting the error messages? Yes, one could fork your project.

your project is quite large, approx. a little over 2.5 GB, which makes forking/downloading and online testing difficult (which includes downloading the media). To reduce the file-size of your video you should a format suitable for online presentation (Media formats suitable for online studies — PsychoPy v2022.1.0). Given that there experiments seems to address signers you could even delete the audio from your video. I was able to reduce the file size from appr. 2.5 gb video (*mov) to 120 mb video (*mp4 with h.264 and mp3) or 110 mb without audio. This would make running the experiment online much smoother.
Anyway, the stimulus that seemed to create the first error was BigNormalReceptiveOverview.mov. This might go away after converting all files to a suitable online format.
BTW, if a stimulus is not changed during the experiment, set it to constant not to set every repeat. BigNormalReceptiveOverview.mov was set to set every repeat.
