threadedImageLoaderExample loadFromURL not working


HI, I just tried threadedImageLoaderExample which is in OF/examples/addons folder.

And if I run the code, loading images from disk works well but loading images from URL doesn’t seem to work.

The link works fine when I tried in the web browser.

This is the error message it outputs

[ error ] ofxThreadedImageLoader: couldn't load url, response status: 301

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I’m using OF v0.9.8 on OSX.


Changing to a different URL worked.

I don’t know why the URL in the example doesn’t work though. could be a problem of a file type?


No if I upload the same image to different URL, it works. I tested this using
So maybe the reason why “” isn’t working has to do with the website itself.
