    Cannot upload FLAC


    I've done it many times before, but today, I go through the motions of uploading a new FLAC format file, and I get an error after it is uploaded:

    "Uploaded file format not supported or not an audio file."

    At first, I thought it might be because it was in 32 Floating Point format, so I converted it to 16 bit, and tried again. Same error.

    Hello? is this thing on?

    BTW, I just tried again, problem persists. Check logs from around 19:44 UTC, Jan 13, 2018 (or a minute or two before).

    Hi zimbot,

    Can you share the file with us so we can try and run some experiments? Feel free to post a link here or send it by private message to me.

    Cheers,

    I cannot upload flac, wav or mp3 in fact not accepting any format at this point. File is smaller that ones I had previously loaded. Hope you can help? Thanks in advance!

    Can you tell me which combination of browser/OS you're using? Also feel free to send a PM to me with the link to the sounds so I can try to reproduce.

    I was able to upload a wav file from one drive with Safari from my iPhone.

    So upload didn't work in any of IE11, Firefox and Edge?
    I tried to reproduce the problem with Microsoft Edge in a virtual machine (we don't have Windows machines) and I was able to upload with no problems. Could you send me one of the sounds via PM so I can test with your content? If there is something wrong in your audio file, you could try transcoding the file to a different format and try again.

    I see now that in the last month, since this was last discussed, it appears to have been fixed. I was able to upload the file today. Thanks!
