Can't Upload Audio!!! 2013-02-28 17:02:15 Reply

I am trying to re-upload a song to this site that I uploaded a while ago on a different account. But, when it finishes uploading the file, it gives me an error message saying, "This file is not a valid .mp3". The file plays in my iTunes fine, so I know it's not corrupted or anything. My only other guess is that the system has a feature to prevent plagiarism and it is rejecting the song because it already exists on my previous account. So, I went to my other account and deleted the submission, and it still said the same thing. I need a little bit of help.

Try setting your .mp3 format to 16bit 44100hz 192 or higher fixed bitrate. I know that there are problems associated wiht using variable bit rate.

Also try using a different encoder, such as Audacity.

Also try clearing your browser cache and then restarting your browser. That has been known to remedy some upload issues.
