I found in the internet a public link:
I can not play the video “1. learning the numbers 0-10.mp4” (487 MB).
Please test it.
With browser F12 (network analysis) i found a file is not found (HTTP 404):
Download works but not streaming.
If i copy the file (with federated cloud sharing) to my test folder also on emma.cloud.tabdigital.eu with another folder and name it works:
Is there perhaps a problem with long folder and file - names or special characters?
Perhaps it is a bug or a feature.
I see several &-characters and spaces in the file name and path which both could cause trouble in an url. I would test the following things to narrow down the problem:
get rid of the &-characters in the directory name.
remove all spaces from the file name.
remove all spaces from the directory names.
Ok. I think i test all names in the original structure to find the error.
Here is a screenshot.
Ok i tested it. The problem is the folder “colours & numbers & animals” with the two “&”. It also do not work with one “&”.
(thre files, first folder ok, both subfolder an error)
Is it a bug or a feature becaus of “&” in folder names?
Why is it possible to use “&” in folders?
Are there only problems with video streaming?
I think i will delete the data in a few days.
Perhaps someone want to test it a few days.
I think that the &-characters in the path name are not correctly encoded. In an url such a character should usually be encoded as “
”, because otherwise it could be interpreted as a separator of optional parameters, e.g.
Can you write an issue on github or elsewhere? I can not do it.
%20 = Space = ok
%26 = & = ok ?

ASCII (/ˈæskiː/ (listen) ASS-kee),:6 abbreviated from American Standard Code for Information Interchange, is a character encoding standard for electronic communication. ASCII codes represent text in computers, telecommunications equipment, and other devices. Most modern character-encoding schemes are based on ASCII, although they support many additional characters.
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) prefers the name US-ASCII for this character encoding.
ASCII is one of the IEEE m...
You’re right, it looks like the encoding is done correctly at this point. Probably a kind of double encoding is done which prevents the correct interpretation of the url?!
Opening an issue ticket is really easy and can be done be everyone.
Hope it is correct:
Just for reference, there is another thread concerning this:
