Files downloads of tests now available again

Geoff Boyle
 

I’ve linked all the zipped folders to my Dropbox account.

 

Just follow the links from cmltests.net as usual.

 

Everything is now working fine 😊

Faceless bloody giant systems.

 

We’re no blocked by Dropbox for excessive bandwidth, I’ve upgraded as they suggested but we will still be limited to 200GB per day.

 

Please be patient and try again.

 

Cheers

Hi Geoff
 
I use My Air Bridge for large downloads and they offer 5TB download on their Pro account for $10/month so might be worth checking this out as an alternative to Dropbox.
 
 
Thanks for doing all the tests, they’re great!

Thanks, I’m now putting secondary links in place to my new account 😊

 

By this time tomorrow all the test pages will have dual if not triple links to the files, if one is overloaded then try another!

 

I looked at the logs and can see why one.com freeked.

 

Cheers

Significant downloads of large files do put a lot of load on a data center and certainly isn’t free nor nice to the neighbors. Unlimited plans are bad marketing, but are meant to work out for ‘average’ users :-)  Ultimately any place where you pay a fixed fee, they will eventually come after you if you generate excessive peak load, or they just throttle you to where it becomes useless.

One of the few places that will truly give you unrestricted download bandwidth is Amazon S3, but they charge you by the meter for bandwidth and storage. If nothing else, it’s a good calibration of the actual cost involved - $0.09/GB data transfer out, $0.0023/GB for storage/month. Those are list prices. That quick adds up though if you have hundreds of people downloading multi-GB files.

If you did need a solution that supports this without having to get the run-around from various providers, S3 would be a choice, but you would have to put some sort of payment button on the download page to help cover the cost and make people more thoughtful about grabbing just about every file for the heck of it…

The sad reality is that nobody is going to pay to download tests.

I tried it on Vimeo yesrs ago, made all of $60.

Some people donate and thats cool.

Or simply start using the proper technology for distribution of such content (large files, no live streaming requirement) which is P2P - torrents.
As long as people keep their clients up seeding the data, others will benefit. And your hosting provider can keep the initial seed forever.

You may use torrents, the majority of people using this site won’t.

 

It’s a simple fact, if it isn’t easy it won’t be used.

 

Theory is great but practical application comes first.

The distribution of these files could be distributed amongst many servers (i.e. the computers and network connections of all of us who download the files) by using bittorrent or its corporate cousin whose name isn't associated with illegal file sharing, Resilio Sync:


As Resilio's page says:

Sync skips the cloud and finds the shortest path between devices when transferring data.

No size limits. Easily sync and share folders that contain gigabytes (or terabytes) of data.

I've used this for very large files that I'd like to share with people without the files ever touching a cloud service. It's cross-platform and works. And it's simple to set up bandwidth restrictions within it if you're concerned about it eating your whole net connection.

If given permission to do so, I'd be happy to download all the files to my RAID and then post a Resilio Sync link for others to download and mirror the files, taking the strain off Geoff's dropbox. My upload speed is only 20Mbps, but each person who mirrors the files will speed the transfer speeds for the next.

It just doesn’t work like that.

 

I’m happy for you to download all the files and try but a 20MB connection!

 

I’m locking up on a much faster connection.

 

Just chill and I’ll have it sorted in a way that is easy to use and transparent.

 

It takes time baby…

 

Cheers

As I said in the middle of the night, I think MASV might be willing to help out. This is one of their core audiences. It would be terrific marketing for them. It’s at least worth an email.

I now have 2 sources for download linked form all pages and thanks to a donation from Paul Richards a third source will be added in a day or so.

 

I’d start the uploads now but I’m trying not to cause any conflicts in my system as I have a very slow connection to Kodak, I’m downloading all the film tests but it’s 487GB and the fastest they can manage is 10MBS.

 

I have a 400MBs download capability…

Thank you for two unsigned messages with no information that I can respond to.

 

If instead of vague “myairbridge doesn’t work” you were to give me details like where you are, of course that should be in your signature according to CML rules, what system you are using, what software you are using, what speed of connection you have and any other information that I could use to sort out your problem then I would do my best.

 

We have tried many other systems, including google drive, and the bandwidth requirements at too great, they froze our account within hours.

 

In every case I have been able to fully investigate the issues have not been with myairbridge but with the users location or system. These are very large files and need a good connection and the software to handle it.
