Accepted Solution

Re: Error 3050

Hi all,

 

We’ve identified the source of the issue and are working rapidly to replace all affected videos.  Some of the affected videos have already been replaced, so if you were having an issue, please try the video again.  Some customers will see positive results sooner than others and we will let you know when all videos have been fixed.

 

We understand how frustrating this has been for our customers and are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.  Our team has been working tirelessly to identify the source of the error, which turned out to be particularly difficult to locate.  We truly appreciate your patience.  

 

NOTE: I am going to mark this post as a solution even though the issue is not resolved yet. Why? It seems like customers are finding this thread and not seeing this message. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Thanks,
Joe

1:18:06.  I was watching the same movie last night and it kept cutting off at the exact same point.  Just tried it again and once again it cut off.  I get either error 571 or 3050.

Thank you. I can duplicate this and our team is currently looking into it. I will update you when I learn more.

 

Earlier when I tested it, I fast forwarded through the part and the ending played fine. You can manually jump to that spot to watch the rest of the movie as a workaround for now.

Do other episodes of Mad Men work for you?

 

Exactly how far into the episode is it cutting off at?

Same here Error 3050.

 

Getting it 4 minutes into "The WIre" S1 Episode 1.

 

I was able to restart, scroll past the spot it happened, and watch it for a couple minutes before it stalled again. I tried the same thing again (scrolled past the second stoppage point) and it locked up after 15 seconds of further viewing.

 

I have rebooted and same problem. I don't have this problem with Netflix on this sysytem.

 

Any solution?

Hey I was streaming a show online and in both episodes I tried to watch, the video just stopped worring and said the video is not available and error code 3050, even though I was watching it before it stopped working.  I tried to look for an answer and could not get one, I watched shows from this computer before and it didn't do it.

Error 3050 and Error 2105

Starting this morning non stop I kept receiving the error 3050 watching game of thrones halfway through the first season.  The past few days I had been watching the series and now every show I have tried to watch it stops somewhere in the middle of the series and gives me this error and if I try to skip that part after I refresh it I just get another one a few minutes later.  I tried to trouble shoot it and unistalled microsoft silverlight and reinstalled it to now get error 2105 using Internet Explorer.  Weird thing is I do not get that error if I try on Mozilla but I continue getting error 3050 using that.  No idea what to do and getting quite frustrated as I was enjoying this series and trying to catch up on it.

 

 

Since I have seen others be told to post the following info I'll do it here anyway before being asked below.

What causes this error?  I have been trying to watch True Blood for a couple of hours and keep getting this error message, I refresh and resume watching but only get about a minute before the error pops up again.

Can you please help me?

Re: Error 3050

This is absolutely ridiculous. Why do I pay my hard earned money every month on something that only works half the time?

New Poster

Re: Error 3050

I bet this has some thing to do with the switch over to IPv6. Being that the only common denominator is traffic.

 

Case in point, I has been watching all the True Bloods since yesterday and did n't have the problem. Today, when alot of core routers on the internet are converting to IPv6 routing we are experiencing playback issues. The library I am viewing isn't being updated. I can resume to a few seconds before the error and one time the video flickered and continued to play. It's totally random, as you can advance the timeline and it play for a bit and error out again.

 

The only big change is world-wide IP routing conversion from IPv4 to IPv6. Only question is: How long is this going to last?

Error 3050

Everytime I try to watch any true blood episode especially Season 2 keeps doing it the most....a few minutes into a episode it will cut off and read Error 3050. I have tried multiple episodes. I will skip past the part where it keeps cutting off  and then few minutes later the video cuts off again! It is taking forever to get through any episode! I also tried reinstalling silverlight and adobe....didn't helpSmiley Sad

I am also getting the error 3050 message.  I tried random episodes from the 1st, 2nd, and 4th seasons of True Blood using Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.  I can't watch anymore than a couple of minutes.  I just watched a whole episode a few nights ago with no problem.  This is so frustrating!
