Hi, I tried to run the example "Music Genre Classification Using Wavelet Time Scattering" but I got an error at the very beginning, "Function GUNZIP was unable to read URL ''http://opihi.cs.uvic.ca/sound/genres.tar.gz''. I tried accessing this webpage 'opihi.cs.uvic.ca' but it seemed like pages don't exist. I wondered if anyone else faces the same problem as me, thanks!

If the file doesn't exist then nothing will be able to read it. I wouldn't bother using gunzip, I'd go for straight downloading and then extracting everything with tar:
system('tar -xzvf genres.tar.gz')
My browser gave up on that site.

The curse of the interweb - things that one hope to rely on collecting suddendly isn't there. I've started to realise that one has to download that stuff ASAP. Good luck finding the information you need.
