    Why does the above video/mp3 of Alex Jones stop at about the 14 minute mark? I can't get it to go beyond that though it says it is over 1 hour. It just keeps restarting itself after that 14 minute mark.

    I've cherry picked what I think are the most poignant 2 chunks of Monday's A J show, and added a couple of callers who brought up Syria and Q at the end. Without the callers sections it's just over 15 minutes (and worth it)

    Let me guess, you are using apple devices?


    I just checked play and download with windows 7 PC using Firfox. Both functions worked.


    I don't kow what to advise. I've had similar complaints from an iphone user about music files I host at the same account at box dot com.


    If anyone can suggest a different hosting service that both supports playback and download for free account users and people with links, I'll have a try at that.


    Oh wait, I got mixed up there. It's the youtube video you are talking about.


    I get problems like that and worse when I try to play videos while I'm on line using Windows XP but things work fine with Win 7.

    Val and Loxie are talking about the deleted video that I saved and uploaded. This one:
    They're right (I've just discovered): the video freezes at 14:17, but the audio track continues. My best guess is that somehow the YT video was removed from YouTube while I was in the middle of downloading it, but somehow I got the audio track intact.

    Apologies to all. There's nothing that can be done, I'm afraid.

    So far as a couple of us mods can figure, the audio of the Alex Jones "EMERGENCY REPORT" that Bill posted above in Post #371 works for the entire hour plus, but the video freezes at the 14:17 mark.

    It would not surprise me if some systems freeze the entire thing, audio and video, at 14:17, depending on how well they handle, or don't handle, the errors at the 14:17 mark.

    I just alerted Bill ... he might have more to say. However, because Youtube has taken that video down, there is no way known to him to try downloading it again.

    ===

    P.S. -- Aha, as I was leisurely composing this post, Bill already did have more to say, now two posts back .

    I have a complete version of it saved. I just checked it at the end, and the video is good all the way.


    It's too big for my free box account from where you might have copied it to the library. Can I upload it direct somehow?

    it's just over 400 meg.




    Until Tuesday 18th, it can be downloaded from wetransfer:

    The important (and YouTube-deleted) Alex Jones video that had the video-sticking problems has been re-uploaded (Thx, norman ) ó the link is the same. It's a larger file (419 Mb), and it works fine now.

    The bullies are ramping up - in a concerted effort!

    As AJ said: "THIS IS NO DRILL"

    Can the rollout of the totalitarian AI Nazi regime be stopped? I very very much hope so, but how!?

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...u-terror-rules

    "Tech Firms Face Hefty Fines Under New EU Terror Rules

    Alphabet Inc.ís Google, Twitter Inc., Facebook Inc. and other tech firms could be slapped with fines as high as 4 percent of annual revenue if they fail to remove terror propaganda from their sites quickly enough under new European Union legislative proposals unveiled Wednesday.

    The European Commission, the blocís executive body, proposed new legislation forcing internet companies to wipe Islamic State videos and other terror content from their services within an hour of notification for removal by national authorities. Companies would be fined by national governments in the event of systematic failures to remove content.

    Wednesdayís proposal follows similar guidelines the EU issued in March. The EU at the time threatened to issue the regulation should the tech firms fall short of expectations.

    Large tech platforms have made rapid improvements in their efforts to tackle terror content, partly thanks to automated tools, but the EU says some of the platforms have failed to meet the one-hour deadline and need to do more.

    "While we have made progress on removing terrorist content online through voluntary efforts, it has not been enough," said Julian King, European commissioner for security policy. "We need to prevent it from being uploaded and, where it does appear, ensure it is taken down as quickly as possible -- before it can do serious damage."

    A 4 percent fine would only occur in the event of "systematic failures" in removing content. For Google parent Alphabet that would amount to more than $4.4 billion and more than $1.6 billion for Facebook, according to the 2017 revenues.

    Spokeswomen for Googleís YouTube and Facebook both said the companies share the commissionís goal to combat the spread of terrorism content on their platforms.

    Automated and machine-learning tools can help tech firms catch any malicious posts. But web firms typically also use human reviewers to look over posts to try to ensure they donít remove terror content when itís used in a neutral context, such as by news outlets, whistle-blowers or non-governmental agencies. That can make tight turnaround times a challenge if companies want to ensure they arenít overly censoring users.

    Calling the commissionís proposal "troublesome," Raegan MacDonald, head of EU public policy at Mozilla, said "it would force private companies to play an even greater role in defining acceptable speech online."

    The move is part of a wider shift by legislators in Europe and the U.S. to hand more legal responsibility to tech firms for the content that appears on their sites. Also on Wednesday, the European Parliament voted to back copyright rules that would help video, music and other rights holders seek compensation for use of their content online. In the U.S., President Donald Trump signed a law in April making websites liable if they knowingly facilitate sex trafficking.

    The EU on Wednesday also called on the companies, member states and Europol to increase their cooperation, including by ensuring that a point of contact at each company and each national authority is reachable 24/7. The tech firms and the EUís member states will also be required to report back to the commission regularly on the removals of terror content.

    The commission proposal still needs approval from the EUís member states and the European Parliament before it becomes law. EU member states said in late June they welcomed the commissionís intentions to present a legislative proposal in the area."

    Quote 1. I just went through my twitter feed and deleted tweets that contained the name of the man who was recently banned on all platforms and the name of his show- all of them except the tweet I just put out which contained his name along with the message that Iíve been banned.

    2. This is where we are now. You can have your voice taken away 4 saying a NAME that they donít want you to say. I will never disappear from Twitter for a day. So if you donít hear from me for a day or two- they got me on here, too. It is so unbelievable that this is real life.

    Quote Iím shaking right now. I just went into a camera store to buy a camera and a light and mic, etc. and they recognized me from tv. I was refused service because they said it was for ďalt rightĒ purposes. That literally just happened.
