Viki

Is this A Bug or Does Viki just want to bug ME?


#63

Once Again was free from the beginning, like the other weekend dramas before.


#64

I said that, just read the time difference of uploading between standard and Plus…


#65

@jadecloud88
I made a list (25 channels w/Viki link) of Chinese fan channels that were on Viki’s Projects/Channel Manager that suddenly disappeared a week or so ago. Do you think I should list them here?


#66

@aznative Hi! I noticed that, too. I thought they were all suddenly licensed. Wishful thinking! lol.
I think I’ve included most of them in my FC collection, although there were a few that were not “searchable” or “addable.” If you could list them here, that’d be great. I’d try to “add” them to the list. Thanks.


#67

Okay, thanks so much. Here goes!


#68

These are just a few of the Chinese fan channels [UNLICENSED in my region] that no longer appear in Viki Projects/Channel Manager.

I shared these just for reference information. As of this date (7Sept 2020) users are unable to follow or submit a request for channel manager.

sisyphus and hairpin were on this sides too


#70

Thank you. I will add “Sisyphus” and “The Golden Hairpin”.


#71

@azrael_tm86v FYI the c-fan channels not to be found in the explore section.


#72

try
explore
china
popular all time
and start from the last page

Maybe you find them this way


#73

@lutra didn’t work for me, there was 1 old fan channel that is not listed above the rest is all older shows or on air “popular all time” how can this fit a fan channel. Do you see it on your app or pc? Can you link the page and post it?
I can see only 4 Korean Fan channels under “sort by new” in the explore section.


#74

https://www.viki.com/explore?country=mainland-china&page=29&sort=all_time

It’s easier for Chinese dramas, for Korean you might want to filter for the genre to narrow it down. Since there are so many old shows, variety and creator channels or however they are named. Try, that’s all I can say.

#75

I did the explore, mainland china, sort all time, I get only 19 pages, not sure how you get 29 pages
as for Korea I get only 28 pages, what browser do you use, perhaps vpn. I’ll try to logout and login, perhaps this is an update bug, but later, I gotta go. Thanks
the link opened like this


#76

Mozilla Firefox 80.0.1

no

Did you try to re-load it?


#77

One more thing: sometimes a drama is available to me, a basic, unpaid user, and the next day it suddenly needs a Viki Pass. The other way round, a lot of Viki Pass dramas become available for everyone after sometime…:woman_shrugging:


#78

@aznative :heart_eyes:

These are almost all in the FC collection I’ve shared. Except one: “Court Lady” which I thought was “Coming Soon” but… Hope Viki will come through with its licensing bid.
Thanks. I’ve added it.

There is one other I know of that can neither be “searched” nor “added” now: Tien Tsin Mystic 2 (河神2).

Still cached in google search results. On Viki, it’s now a “puppy” page… NF has Season 1, so perhaps… :frowning:
https://www.viki.com/tv/36691c-tien-tsin-mystic-2

Thanks again for the list. I wonder if these “disappeared” from the project finder because of the scheduled maintenance. ō_ȏ


#79

Another legal site (in my region – US) has season 2 of “Tien Tsin Mystic”. i q iy i

I’ guessing Viki took the pages down and may be working on solving an issue. You may be right about the scheduled maintenance.

I no longer see if a drama is translated. In the episodes screen I only see the English translation, while before the update it highlighted the Italian translation. How can I tell if a drama has been translated into Italian? How do I know if a drama has been translated into Italian each episode?
Before it was understood well, now it is not understood.
If I look for a title of a drama with the Italian title, it doesn’t give me results in the search.
I liked Viki because it was simple to use now it’s really inefficient for users, it takes a lot of time to choose a drama to make sure everything has been translated.
What is the point of improving the section for translators when the public cannot access the translations easily? ; (


#81

My issues started when I got the new version of Viki. I noticed with the most recent shows I’ve watched that I can start the drama no problem but when it gets to a certain episode, it won’t play. This started on my iPad coincidentally after an update but my Samsung tablet was still playing all the episodes. I didn’t realize it was a version issue until I updated that tablet too and now it’s having the same error message and won’t play. My phone hasn’t been updated and I can still watch all episodes there without issue. I’ve sent a report to support on the 1st of September and yet to get a reply from them.


#82

Is the Viki version on all these devices the updated new one?
