failed sync process

Nov 30, 2010 at 3:23 PM

Hi

I first downloaded the application a few days ago and was able to sync local folders with sets on my flickr account - it worked beautifully.

Today it doesn't work, and after I a few seconds of activity displays the following error message:

Status #25: 0% - The sync process failed: Could not fetch photo info from Flickr.
(Unknown attribute: iconserver=4149)

From the rest of the Activity Log it seems it connects to the images on flickr's servers, reads metadata from the Flickr pictures, but stops at 5/44. 
Any idea what this is and how it can be resolved?

Hope you can help

Laurens.

Hi Laurens. What version of the app are you using? What''s the URL of picture 5 that is causing the problem?

Regards,
Erwyn

Hi Laurens,

I've found that the output from Flickr that the app relies on has changed again in the last few days and broke the app. Just uploaded a new version of 1.4.1.0 that can handle this change. Hopefully it won't break soon.

Please download the app again.

Regards,
Erwyn

Thanks very much for the quick fix!

The app is great by the way, thanks for making it.

Could it be possible the output from Flickr that the app relies on has changed again? I'm using 1.4.1.0 and I'm getting the same error message tonight.

@sebastienbarre. Could you share more details from the log file? I currently cannot reproduce this issue with version 1.4.1.0.
