Thanks for your patience through our major migration to a new datacenter. The worst of it is behind us. Processing of uploaded files “caught up” late last night for all your files that you uploaded over the last couple days and new uploads should now be in your account. Please note: there is still some bottlenecks in the new system when processing uploaded files, especially large files, so it may take up to a minute for your file to appear in your account after it’s uploaded. Just refresh your browser or click on ‘File Manager’ again to see your recently uploaded files.
We do still have an outstanding problem with downloading some files and thumbnails. When you attempt to download these files, an “ooops and error occurred” message will appear. We are working to resolve this problem as soon as possible.

I've just checked my account and files I've uploaded over the past three weeks have still not appeared. A couple of days ago, one file did appear. I didn't get too excited and post the news here, but tried uploading another. That one has still not appeared.
People have left many comments on this blog saying the same thing about files not appearing. So have they now, as Mediamax claims?
And my old hosted mp3 files that wouldn't stream? Still not working.
I've been investigating some other systems and not come up with a definitive solution yet. If you are wanting to embed an mp3 file in a webpage you could try:
A host which does allow you to stream into other players is:
This is streaming into iTunes okay - I put the file link in my .xml file. However, it doesn't work with a browser Quicktime plugin. Their support came back quickly to say it on works with the Windows Media Player.
The combination of the two means I'm no longer reliant on Mediamax (hurrah), but I need a better solution. Suggestions welcome.
