Video Server Issues
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   2 years ago

Sorry folks, but it looks like our cloud storage provider, Wasabi, is having some technical problems. Some users reported earlier that our videos aren't playing, I checked their status page and it looks like they're having a domain hosting service problem at their end. Bottom line: nothing will play until they get their issue fixed.

I just switched to Wasabi a few months ago and this is the first major problem they've had. They've been very reliable, fast, and honestly a whole lot less expensive than my previous provider (AWS). So I can't complain. I was hoping the adage "you get what you pay for" wouldn't bite me in the behind, but we'll see. If the problem isn't fixed in a couple hours, I'll get on the horn with their tech support and be angry Hulk.

I apologize for the inconvenience. It's beyond my control at this point. However, in the mean time, you can enjoy some of my TechHelp videos. Those are all still hosted on YouTube, and they're working. :)

Service just came back online for me. So all seems well again. However, if you still can't play videos or download ZIP files, you may need to wait for the DNS to propagate. What does that mean? Well, the DNS (domain name service) is basically a list that translates a name (like to an IP address (like If that service goes down, your computer has no idea how to find the destination server. This is what happened with Wasabi. Their DNS provider (GoDaddy) shut off their service. Once it's turned back on, it can take a few hours for this change to propagate throughout all of the other servers on the Web. But... everything should be back up and running as normal shortly.
