bbc or me at fault?


[link to this post]
 
in an attempt to avoid the wedding I tried:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4extra/programmes/genres/c...
and get Error 330 (net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED): Unknown error.

Chromium, IE8, IE9 and firefox all have problems with lots of links suggesting the BBC are using an incompatible means of compression.

I get similar with FireFox on Linux. The Epiphany browser works OK though.

Try http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4extra/

Virtually all links off that page fail for me.

My thought was someone came up with a quick wheeze for saving bandwidth for the wedding and used your browser to check his coding.

I have installed Epiphany and it doesn't error but doesn't finish displaying the page.

i guess i'll have to wait until after the wedding.

Same here with Opera plus Sky bb LLU. Most if not all BBC websites are hardly loading at all. Or if they do they take an age.

If you wanna check the live wedding footage out like i did and find you cant get to it via Iplayer. Youtube have a live stream of it and there servers are handling it abit better.

All back to normal (as of later yesterday afternoon).
It's highly probably the issue was just overloaded servers due to people watching the royal wedding online.
