When I try to download an mp3 I get a 206 byte file instead.
I tried to change download method. This were the result:
Download Method2: 206 byte
Download Method3: 803 byte
Download Method4: 206 byte
Download Method5: 206 byte
Download Method6: 0 byte
I host the files on fileburst. (not the same host that I host the website on)
The url’s are working and I can download the files if I type in the non encrypted download link in the web browser.
I use version 5.0.6
Here are some debbuging reports:

The file name “DJ Contacreast – Skybeam.mp3” is not valid, because it contains spaces.
The other thing I’d like to mention is that when you use an external server to host your files, the amount of bandwidth used for the download is doubled; because eStore first reads the file into your server and then resends it to the buyer. The preferred way to externally host files is to use eStore’s native Amazon S3 integration feature. When using S3, after the encrypted link is decoded, the buyer is redirected to the higher performace Amazon servers, using an expiring URL request.
Hosting on Amazon S3 is free for the first year, and typical billing reports fom eStore users are about 14 cents a month.April 19, 2011 at 5:20 pm #31573
I switched to Amazon S3.
When I tried this time I got an “Access Denied” message when I clicked on the download link.
I have filled in both Access Keys in addon settings.
I used this url:
as3tp://bucket.s3.amazonaws.com/DJ_Conta_songs/DJ_Contacreast_Skybeam.mp3April 19, 2011 at 5:54 pm #31574
Change “bucket” to the name of your S3 bucket. Also, it won’t work if your bucket name contains any upper case letters.April 19, 2011 at 5:57 pm #31575
I hope “DJ_Conta_songs” is the name of a folder, and not a bucket name…April 19, 2011 at 6:09 pm #31576
“DJ_Conta_songs” is the bucked name. I should change it to “dj_conta_songs”.April 19, 2011 at 6:18 pm #31577
Change the bucket name, then use…
as3tp://dj_conta_songs.s3.amazonaws.com/DJ_Contacreast_Skybeam.mp3April 19, 2011 at 6:36 pm #31578
Thank you, it worked great.
I have two less important questions:
– I had to right click and then click “save as” in order to save it(which isn’t a big deal)but is there a way to force the web browser to save the file when I left click on it. (when I left clicked it only opened the file.)
– Can I stream mp3 files from Amazon S3 through a flash mp3 player on my website.April 19, 2011 at 6:50 pm #31579
You should be able to left click the link. If it’s because it starts to “play” instead, there is a browser setting someplace, to give you the open or save as option.
If the S3 file is marked as public, (default is private), it should work. just give the regular http URL to the player.April 19, 2011 at 7:01 pm #31580

This forum is really great.. it would have been heavy to figure all of this out on my own.
I should probably stop posting now.
(If like happy techno/trance you can check the site I was working on: http://www.djconta.com, it’s not finished jet)April 20, 2011 at 1:57 am #31583
It seems to work with spaces in the filename. When I added the spaces Amazon S3 added “+” where the spaces should have been in the link.
When I linked them to the website I used the normal filename with normal spaces.April 20, 2011 at 10:45 am #31584
The RFC number escapes me at the moment, but Internet standards basically say that you use special characters at your own risk.
