Download link broken? (download button)
Would be great if fixed.


J-Slyde J-Slyde ·  02 March 2011, 01:43

ADORE IT! Mad props to all involved.
This is a keeper :)

Djouls Djouls ·  02 March 2011, 16:43

Download link corrected. It was supposed to work, but didn't work for everyone, don't know why. So I change the URL and now it should be fine for everybody...

totem totem ·  03 March 2011, 13:50

bah, download still aint working. it just plays the tune
am i missing something, its most likely i am?

Djouls Djouls ·  03 March 2011, 14:44

Yes William, you're missing a few basics, but no worry. The link/download button points to the mp3 directly. So if you clic on it it will open a new window in your navigator and play the mp3 using some quicktime plugin or another... But if you right-clic on the link and select the "save as" or "save link as" or "save link destination as" (somethink like that, sorry my firefox is in french), then you're offered to save/download the mix somewhere on your computer.

call me stupid - i cant download this amazing mix either - mac user - any advice anyone?
djouls help

Djouls Djouls ·  04 March 2011, 11:53

Hi Paul
don't know what to tell you. i'm a mac user too. just re-tested the link, clicked on it it opened a new window in which quicktime plays the mp3. Or right-clic and then "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" or "Save Link Target As" or "Download Linked File As" and it works. I mean I've just done right now and 5000 people have manaed to get this mix already... You can try going to but the link is the same...
