Some solutions/answers from the links above

hi, yep it means that for some reason cloudflare blocked your requests. For the “text” data i have a proxy but not for audio/images because it will cost me money. I will take a look at your deck url and will let you know if i can import it correctly.
For now I would recommend to try to use some VPN or another network.
