Mediafire Downloads Update


Some of the Fame episodes I had stored on Mediafire for download purposes have incurred copyright infringements and this has led to my account being suspended. Mediafire don't tell you or warn you or give you a chance to remove the offending items they suspend your account and it seems impossible to ever access it again. I'd heard that they were cracking down and I'd hoped Fame might slip under the radar.

This means that the links for all episode parts, song videos, interview videos etc..  are no longer working I'm afraid. I spent most of Saturday deleting broken links from the Episode guide resetting links for all posts from this year so anything dated 2013 should continue to work with links now stored on Google Drive for the moment. Although my storage capacity isn't very big.

I  have set up a new Mediafire account for written material, like the magazines, sheet music scripts etc.. and reset the links for many of those posts. I have also set reset the links for the Zipfile albums. 

I will look at replacing some of the Video downloads but this is a huge job and I'm still playing catch up from losing material last year. So it's going to take time and my priority is to keep the site going with new material.

If you want the old Video material I suggest you download it from my accounts on YouTube using sites like

RealPlayer Downloader or

KeepVid 

The download instructions section has been update with how to download from Google Drive:




Multiple MP3s are stored in Zipfiles on Google Drive. 


To download: Click on Download Zipfile link on the post, 

This will take you to a grey screen saying no preview is available. 



Click the Download button, underneath the message. 

A box will then appear for you to select where on your computer you want to save the MP3. Once selected, click the "Save" button on the box and the MP3 should download.

Video Downloads 


Videos are stored on Google Drive. 
To download: Click on Download Video link on the post, 
This will take you to a grey screen where the video will appear and can be played.



Click the "File" button under the video title in the top left hand corner. 

This will bring up a drop down menu. Select Download from the menu. 

A box will then appear for you to select where on your computer you want to save the Video. Once selected, click the "Save" button on the box and the Video should download. 

Some larger Videos will be bring up an additional screen saying the video is too large to be virus scanned.

Simply click the Download anyway link underneath the message.


A box will then appear for you to select where on your computer you want to save the Video. Once selected, click the "Save" button on the box and the Video should download.

Using a link that says something like: Download the episode in 5 parts

Which are found on the Episode Guide, Will go to a folder storing all the episode parts:



Click on the video name and then The download process is exactly the same as the Video Download instructions above.


Once the download is complete hit the "Back" Button to return to the folder and repeat for each of the individual Episode parts.
