Support: Phone recordings not posting

Update: Everything is seemingly back to normal; we had a hiccup that was caused as a result from a recent data center move. Contact support through the Hipcast.com web site if you are still experiencing difficulties;

As an aside: iTunes can take a while to update, we’re sending pings to help speed the process if at all possible.

Update: Phone postings are transcoding and posting now. Next update on status of existing phone recordings that did not previously transcode….developing.

-Earlier Updates-

We are aware of the issue that some users are reporting about phone recordings not appearing in the audio list, nor posting to blogs or podcast feeds.

“Transcode Error: Unrecognized audio or video format.”

We are investigating and working on the issue.

    We appreciate the heads up in the blog. But, we’ve been experiencing missing audio since November 9th and have yet to get any sort of response email from technical support. We heavily rely on this tool, using it for extensive and widely-covered pre-election and post-election coverage. Even if it’s just a generic (but timely) response that says “we’re experiencing technical difficulties,” that could go a long way towards slightly easing customer anxiety since we’ll then know what’s up. Bad enough there’s no phone number; no email makes you feel completely in the dark.

    Hipcast will need to decide whether a customer can contact it directly with an issue or if it prefers all customer communication come through this blog. If that’s the case, IMO, total reliance on open forums/boards/blogs to address individual customer issues is a bit shortsighted and can ultimately make the client feel neglected.

    In the meantime, hope you can figure out the problem soon.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the heads up, you are correct… we tend to put more widespread issues here on the blog and keep up with support e-mail as best we can, in light of the fact that we do not offer telephone support.

    Our devs are on the issue and have been continually working through it. Hope to have a resolution soon!

    Thanks Eric,

    Problematically, I didn’t find this blog linked from the hipcast home page at all – is it? I got here from a google blog search. I posted on your personal site (rude of me I know) but I couldn’t figure out how to get a message to support. I’ve sent three e-mails to hipcast support in the last month none of which have been answered.

    I love the service – I just want to be able to rely on it.

    Any updates on when this will be fixed? I have several anxious people in my office questioning why it is taking so long.

    Is this the best place to keep checking to determine when the problem has been corrected, I am anxious to start using the service again as well.

    I also had a hard time locating this support page.

    I signed up with hipcast last week and love your service. Problem is that your system won’t take my of my credit cards. It keeps saying that I entered info wrong, but that’s just not true. I have tried every way I know to pay you, but you won’t take it. I have emailed every address you give me for help but no response. I want to give you money and use your service. Any help?

    I AGREE witht the POST from PUBLIC RELATIONS posted on Nov 13. I also have tried to contact tect support & i have NOT received any response. It seems that this is a “Side” business for one individual & I m not looking at http://www.byoaudio.com and http://www.audioacrobat.com since they DO respond to questions is a very timely manner. TOO bad because this service is very affordable BUT CONTACT info & response TIME is VERY important when we need tech response. Thanks

    Support issues that come in that are unable to be handled by front line support are escalated to related development team, and we do our best to get timely responses from them.

    Hipcast does not provide technical support by telephone, but e-mail only.

    BYOAudio and AudioAcrobat are sister products with different markets– focusing on non-blog systems and conference calling, along with podcasting and functionality not in the Hipcast system– at a different price point.

    Nice forum design. Okay, I need your help.
    So, I wanna make personal site, and I am looking for site template.
    Can you suggest some online store or other resource where I can find many site templates?

    It would be better if it will be free:)
    I think many of us have personal sites, do you design it yourself?

    Best regards, Bill.

    I have been trying to access my account for two weeks. I apparently goofed up the password. I have yet to receive a reply after submitting to “Forgot Your Password”. I’ve also not received response to e-mails to tech support. What the heck is wrong?
    Will somebody from Hipcast Tech please contact me, either at 248-613-8700 or at Paul@TheCarConnection.com???

    I’ve used their contact form now 3 times to get them to resend me my username and password and I still have not got a response. I don’t use this service anymore and all I want to do is cancel my account.

    They don’t have a phone?
