Was using the Giant Bomb Video Buddy app (up to date) this morning (Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, WIFI) and am now getting the Jeff authentication error on every video, same deal after testing with Luchadeer app. Restarted, cleared my cache, re-downloaded the app and re-linked my account and no dice. Using my desktop is fine, all videos load and my API request rate is fine. I've also tried using third-party apps (Default tablet video player, VLC and Dolphin browser player) and still had the same error.

My RSS reader downloaded 7 of the E3 trailers today and then after that just error messages. Did I get rate limited because of the trailer dump?

Had the same thing happen to me and didn't even get to download anything. Saw that I had 24 trailers to download, marked the ones that I didn't need to watch, and the downloaded the 8 I was interested in. Every one was downloaded as the 41 second Jeff error message. I was wondering if E3 was going to break this new stupid system.

@jetlag: I had the same thing happen too. In my case the client I'm using (Miro) makes 3 requests for each video; although I can't see my API limits on http://www.giantbomb.com/api/ currently.

@edgework: Any chance we could get an RSS feed which excludes trailers? I never watch them, but the only way for me to avoid them is to subscribe to 16 separate feeds. Also would it be possible to exclude HEAD requests from the API limit?

Yeah, I use Miro too. I let Plex index my Miro folders so I can watch the videos anywhere. I download everything because I don't have the bandwidth to stream. I hope this be can resolved.

Can confirm that after all the trailers posted on RSS (Pocket Casts) it became error message city.

Please advise.

Seems like I'm having the same issues as everyone else. The site works fine, but Pocket Casts just quit this weekend, as well as the GBVB.

I'd second this. I really just want GB original content feed.

Same here, all videos since Sunday have been the error video. :( I also second the request to not include trailers in the main video feed.

Seems like the error message mishap is back! I had 20 out of 30 videos be error messages and they were all trailers.

Thirding this, especially if we're going to get rate-limited after downloading 20(?) videos a day from the feed.

4th-ing, i guess

My api page says I have no current rate limits, however, all the videos are still giving the error message on pocket casts

Oh, that thing I said would happen 10 weeks ago, happened.

Now that E3 is here and trailers are being posted to the RSS feed, that limit of 20 items is far too small and easily exceeded.

Total file size that I've downloaded over the past couple of days is less than 5GB - smaller than many individual premium videos.

Trailers should be excluded from the limits and/or a trailer-free RSS feed should be provided - one which won't break every time someone adds a new video category to the site.

Man I love GB, but this just sucks. I watch nearly all my content through downloaded video but having to go back and redownload the following day just because of this dumb 20 video limit is not what I signed up for. Why not just remove the limit for us premium members?

What's the limit thing people are talking about? Something that happened when they switched their RSS feed?

@tandar1: From the OP:

[If] you're using a generic app that uses our RSS feed to get the videos [or] you're running a homebrew script that needs some tweaking [...] you're going to need to append your API key to the video url or the RSS feed [...] Please note, you'll be limited to 20 unique video downloads a day downloaded this way.

If you hit the 20 video download limit, any subsequent video comes in as if you are unsubscribed or unauthenticated and you get Jeff's message instead of the video you wanted.

@smek: Thanks so much for this, you're doing God's work. My situation makes the use of a download manager necessary, and this is extremely helpful. Now I can watch all the GB videos I want!

I have been having constant problems with Video playing in the last month or so through the Plex Channel on my Nexus Player. I have tried countless things, uninstalling/reinstalling both apps, channels, I have even factory reset the Nexus Player. I can access all the videos through the Plex Channel in my Chrome browser on both my phone and computers. As well, the Plex Android app lets me watch the videos. But the moment I try to send it to the Nexus Player through chromecast or by using the Nexus Player Plex App, I get the 40 or so second clip of Jeff saying I could not be authenticated. I have several times been back to these forums looking for a solution and have yet to figure out what the heck is going on.

Does anyone else have a Nexus Player? Are they seeing this same problem? I would love to continue watching my Giant Bomb videos on the couch. I would really appreciate some help. Thanks

Just a quick update, I tried removing the API key from the channel. And now I still get the Jeff Error message on the Nexus Player, the Android Phone Plex App, and in the Chrome Browser on the computer that I am running the server. But meanwhile it seems to work fine on a different computers Chrome Browser on the same network. Harrumph. Would love some ideas if anyone has them.

(just an FYI was testing with two separate videos, today's Quick Look of Overcooked and this Tuesday's First Ever Live GiantBombcast)

I'm now getting prompted for my user+password. I've been successfully using the feed URL with the API key pretty much the whole time; haven't made any changes on my end.

Using Miro, if that's relevant.

I am a pocket casts user and subscriber to GB. I've been using the high quality feed with my personalized api for a while to manage videos on my ipad. It stopped refreshing and has no new episodes after 10/10. I am still able to get premium podcast feeds for the Bombcast and Beastcast.

I have contacted pocket casts also

Using the Giant Bomb App, no recent videos (starting around last Friday) will play anymore. When I try to download them, they fail and in the download manager it says "HTTP Error 404: not found." Older videos all work correctly and I am able to see the videos fine on the website.
