Exclamation Soundcloud.com invalid download directory issue

Hi,

I'm encountering an issue for some file downloads through soundcloud where it starts the download, then encounters an error and stops saying "Invalid Download Directory". However, I don't think this is the real error as the "xyz.mp3.part" files are successfully created. I can also download other files from soundcloud into the same directory successfully. For the problem files, I've also tried changing the destination name to something like "1.mp3" so that the full path would be "C:/Users/myuser/Music/1.mp3" and still have the same error, so I think there is something else happening here.

Here is the log link "16.05.22 20.50.23 <--> 16.05.22 21.01.21 jdlog://6569925302851/"

I believe I saw something about invalid arguments when reading log lines, but wasn't sure what that would mean

@ACodingHuman: Thanks for the report! Issue is caused by wrong destination filetype mp3 as the stream provides different audio codec.

Fixed!
Reset those files after the next CORE-update and try again.

Bitte auf das nächste CORE-Update warten!

Thanks for your feedback!

If you got some more time, maybe you can verify if .mp4 is the correct file-extension or if .m4a would be the right one.
You can use this e.g. using the open source tool "MediaInfo": mediaarea.net/de/MediaInfo
EDIT

I'm asking you since we weren't able to fully test this because you were downloading content that can only be played by soundcloud pro users and we did not have a pro account for testing.

Hello,

Apologies for the delay. I wasn't sure exactly what to do, but I downloaded the program and put in one of the files. Attached is the screenshot. This is the only file I remember at the moment, as I'd downloaded all of the fixed files before I saw your message.

Best,

@ACodingHuman: I've deleted the attached screenshot. I guess you've added the wrong one because it contained personal details
As long as it works fine for you,all is good

@Jiaz Thanks ! I didn't have permission to view the image after upload, so yes perhaps it was the wrong one. Here I've attached two more of the same file.

In one of them, the extension is .m4a and in the other I renamed the same file to mp4. Both of them say "mp4a-40-2" for the Codec id in the audio section. So does that mean it should be m4a for the extension ? The file works fine with both names.

Also, I'm guessing this will be a new thread, but I've found that some files don't display the time correctly in my audio player. E.g. The time tracker stays at the beginning for the duration of the song rather than slowly moving down the line to the end time.

Jiaz will probably check this soon.

Yap the extension is really only "cosmetic".

While you can report this problem here it is most likely not "caused by JD":
We use FFmpeg to download those files (soundcloud uses "HLS streaming") - you might need to post-process them to correct this.

Hello,

Yes here's a link to one. I just deleted my local copy and redownloaded. Confirmed that it still doesn't show the time progression.

@ACodingHuman: Thanks. I guess this happens for the mp4(aac) file, right? In that case I also need access to your account (send details to support@jdownloader.org) so I can check it. Most likely those files are missing the table index and thus the player don't know in advance how to seek and how long the whole file is. I guess it should be possible to tell ffmpeg to fix/add this information but I need link+account in order to test/reproduce the issue

Hey sorry I should have clarified, that link in my last post was a public link, so you should be able to test with it without an account. Tho if that's not enough, lmk and I'll send account details to the support email.

Thanks again for your help

EDIT: it appears to only happen for m4a files. The files with .mp4 extensions are working correctly. Here's the link to an mp4 file for comparison. **External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**

EDIT 2: I'll just send account now in case it is helpful. lmk when finished please

That file looks fine here.

Also all I get is a .mp3.

I've never been able to download other files than .mp3 from soundcloud except when the uploader allows official downloads/download of the original source file...
