New Player in the Works

We have received many bug reports and feature requests concerning the audio players on the FMA site.  This includes the in-page player (play buttons on the webpages) and our outdated flash-based pop-out playlist player.  I am currently developing a brand new html5 pop-out playlist player for the site and am working to remove the last traces of flash from FMA, which includes portions of the image and audio uploaders.  I hope to have all of this completed by Jan. 31 so keep watching here for updates!

Listen/Download counters broken

As some FMAers have noticed, the per-track, per-album, and per-playlist listen and download counts have not been updated for several days.  We are aware of the issue and are trying to correct it.  None of the download or listen data has been lost, but there is a large backlog that our statistics engine is struggling to keep up with.  I will be optimizing the statistics system and returning the counters to normal as soon as possible, hopefully by the end of the week.

Hi @nrclark - I was hoping to record today's show for that purpose, but I ran into some problems with my setup. I'll work out the kinks by next week. Thanks for your interest!

Hey, just wondering if FMFF is available as a podcast?

If wishes and buts were clusters of nuts, we'd all have a bowl of granola.
