Same here,

I tried with Windows 7 (IE and Firefox), Android and OpenSuse. QuickTime is up to date - just updated it again today but it keeps crashing.

Any solution / suggestion to it?

My ear is really "bad" and Justin claims we should work out the stuff our self. I really like getting into that, but I feel the need for some ear training up-front  ;)


Cheers!

I don't think it's a quicktime problem -- it doesn't work on my system either (even when I allow all of the tracking javascript nonsense), which doesn't use quicktime for audio.

Edit ...

Hrm.  that may not be the case -- something may have snatched my soundcard and timidity can't get lock.

Nope, it's definitely busted.

The ear trainer generates a midi stream from http://www.justinguitar.com/eartrainer/app/generate.php (based on an argument it's given)

eg

http://www.justinguitar.com/eartrainer/app/generate.php?fd168217a0b27fe70362548671240585

This produces output marked audio/midi, but the inlined file in the body is empty.

Therefore, generate.php is buggered.  There will probably be useful information in the apache error log for whoever writes/maintains these tools.

greetings all,

A few weeks back, whe drew the same conclusion (that the generated midi will need to be formatted differently) and we informed the developer of the ear trainer. Ip till now; it seems that he haven't found a working solution yet...

It's not a problem with quicktime itself, it's a problem with quicktime FF plugin. I tried Google Chrome and it works fine. I'm not really happy with having browser installed just for one app but hey...
