I created my experiment in the builder and am trying to run my task online. Unfortunately, I keep receiving the following error:
‘Unfortunately we encountered the following error:
• when downloading the resources for experiment: 12exp
• unable to download resource: screamsoundtest.wav (Failed loading audio file with status: 404.)
Try to run the experiment again. If the error persists, contact the experiment designer.’
In my local experiment folder, there is an html folder, in which a subfolder ‘resources’ is created that includes all stimuli and conditions (including the screamsoundtest.wav). When viewing my code on gitlab, the audio file is there as well.
I have read through several posts and tried a few things: making the audio file smaller, running my pilot in an incognito window, clearing the cache, and of course checking the file name, but the error keeps popping up.
I was wondering if anyone has an idea what the problem could be and how to fix this?
Many thanks in advance,
Could you share the GitLab repo of your experiment? This page explains how. My username is: tpronk
Hey Iris, hey Thomas,
did you get around to solving this issue? I had the same issue with a file called “Werbung.wav” or “Werbung.mp3”. And as you, Iris, I tried a lot of different things. I have to add though that the error in my case only occured in Mozilla Firefox with some of the persons testing it. So it was a specific Mozilla+certain persons and not systems problem. In the end, I realized that the word “Werbung” in “Werbung.wav” [advertisement in engl.] apparently triggered a specific adblocker or an add on in Mozilla. So I simply changed the name of the file and then resynchronized. Now it works… (And no - this is not an April fools joke )
All the best,
Ehm… I guess that it was solved yeah? Not sure. Funny issue though, didn’t know adblockers were so strict!
