Can't Upload
Sunday, March 03 2019 @ 10:49 AM CST

i have a 22 Mg file that i can't seem to upload. i have tried multiple times and across many weeks. it tells me it needs to be an mp3 (which it is) and less than 30 mg (which it is) can someone help me understand what the issue is?

some ideas, some issues i have run into in the past:

is there a song picture? if so, maybe it is too large, or bad format. i think only jpg is allowed (maybe gif too?)

make sure the mp3 is not "variable rate"

is it named ending with exactly ".mp3" ?

are you certain it's mp3 and not m4a or another similar format?

sometimes just waiting a little while and trying again works

thanks for your reply.

i DIDN'T post a photo with that possibility.

i waited and tried reposting quite a few times across many weeks.

it is in mp3 format and properly designated as such.

I think the maximum file size is 20mb. Try compressing it a bit harder, and then see if the upload works.

30 Mb used to be OK - maybe no longer?

my longest song https://macjams.com/song/57526 is 25.6 Mb
