comment University teaches DOS-style C++, how to deal with it
Most Universities teach undergraduates with the goal of allowing them to be successful in obtaining a masters degree. Most masters degree programs teach master students with the goal of allowing them to be successful in obtaining a PhD. Most PhD programs aim to help you become a successful researcher.

I think you are right - just tried it with FireFox v30 and it worked. Very frustrating :)

@JackArbiter - The network tab does not show the .mp3 files being downloaded. The console shows the error pasted above, for each .mp3 file I have. After I load any individual .mp3, and reload the page - the console shows nothing and the .mp3 files still don't appear in the network tab. I can see the images/.js/.css files though.

@EvanKnowles - I've just tried on another machine on another network to avoid any local caching. But the behavior is the same in FF 31

comment I made improvements to free code I found online and notified the author. Was this the right thing to do?
@richard - Sorry, yes, I meant 'not'. The thing is, the company doesn't have to give away that 1%. With this software, they could just use the freeware software, modify, and it use it themselves. They might see a value in 'sharing', but a lot of companies are very protective of their work/work of their employees. A competitor might benefit from those improvements - the company doesn't gain by giving them away. If the license of the original project requires it, then yes, they have to in order to benefit from not starting over themselves...but here, it sounds like their choice.

In theory, I think your employer might have a claim on the software? If you used it at work and were developing some of your changes at work, depending on your contract, your employer might own your code. The open source library can be used without obligation, but if you did some of it at work (or even at home, again, depending on your contract), there is a good chance you don't own that code - your employer does. And they might want you giving it away.
