Not a proper MP3 file 2008-02-29 03:59:50 Reply

I've been trying to upload an Mp3 to the Audio Portal but everytime I try to, I get a message that says, "this doesn't appear to be a valid Mp3 file."

Basically I've been using a SmartWav Converter trial to convert my Wav files to Mp3's and it's the same method I used to convert the only audio I have submitted which got in with no problems. When I check the audio files type, it says that it's an Mp3 too. Anyone know why this is happening? And on the chance that it is the Wav converter could someone please point me in the direction of a reliable free Wav to Mp3 converter?

Are you sure that it's sampled at 44,100?

I highly recommend dBPoweramp Ver 10 and only version 10.
Batch file conversion freeware...works awesome!
I will try and find the link to an active dl site for it.

That may be it although in properties it says that it's running at 32kbps and I don't know anything about the conversion of KB to kHz...unless they're the same thing >_>

So what would I need to do to get it up to speed?

So uh, doesn't that mp3 file sound shit? It should be at least 128kbps to sound acceptable :/

Sounds very much like you use a sucky converter, try another one of these here, they might do the trick better

It sounds fine, as it's only a voice recording, but thanks for the links. I'll try them out and see how they fare.

i know that problem, it's probably something with the interpolation, that the newgrounds audio player doesn't support some codecs.
same reason why i can't listen to my 32-bit float (16.8) interpolated .wav's in windows media player.

and about the sample speed, ever modified the project sample speed in audacity, higher means faster ,lower means slower. the NG audio player can only play at 44100 samples a second.
