Hi Peter,

I think I may have found the cause. It appears that Malwarebytes that I use on my PCs is the problem.  If I enter the IP address in the MB exceptions (not the URL as first requested), then Playback runs OK. I can't say that there is no problem with the site, but I have found MB to be over protective with other sites ( I.e. the Matronics Forum).

This started as I wanted to compare Playback to Flysto.net Early indications are that Playback appears to shows more traffic, as flysto only appears to show ADSB traffic. So far, I have been using the kml files from Skydemon, but I would like to use the PAW trk files.

It's been interesting trying to find a way to convert the PAW trk files into kml, as required by flysto. I'm trying to use the technique suggested by Richard Hine in this thread

http://forum.pilotaware.com/index.php/topic,1574.msg17338.html#msg17338

but as I'm not familiar with Perl, I'm finding it challenging  at the moment

Cheers BobD

It appears the Playback program is having problems again.
After chosing a file, and uploading it, it sticks at 100%, and doesn't run the track replay.

Hi BobD

in SkyDemon find the log file you want and open it.
Now choose 'Explore in Google Earth'
this gives you the option to save the file, so save it
this is a .kml file
Now all you have to do is upload it to FlySto

Thanks SGS66, but the problem with that approach is that Flysto only displays traffic transmitting ADSB. the PAW Track files include much more traffic information. What would be nice is for someone with better PERL skills than I possess to expand on the excellent work Richard Hines has started here

http://forum.pilotaware.com/index.php/topic,1574.msg17338.html#msg17338

and create a KML file with all the traffic captured by PAW, so it can be imported into Goggle Earth or Flysto to give a fuller picture.

It's been a while but I have uploaded .trk files to GPS Visualizer:

https://www.gpsvisualizer.com

Can't remember if they showed traffic...

I would not be surprised if FlySto is getting mode s traffic also, as the near miss I had two years ago was with an old PA28-140 and I’d be surprised if it was sporting ADSB. I have the reg and details from FlySto as all I uploaded was my old SkyDemon .kml file to check on the close encounter.

Hi Steve, I had tried that site (and just tried again), but i couldn't get it to work with a PAW .trk file, it returns "No valid GPS Data detected", whichever output option is chosen.

Sadly https://playback.pilotaware.com/playback/ is still not getting past the upload phase, to display the track, on any of my devices......

Yes, I checked it out last night, and have emailed the developer.

It has worked with .trk files in the past as stored emails verified.

I'll keep you posted.

I'm just bumping this in the hope that the Playback option will be repaired soon.
