I uploaded two different copies of the same track under different encoding configurations, and both of them had failed. I re-encoded another copy of the track with the same configurations as the first upload, and voila, it goes through. I am using Adobe Audition to export OGG.
I felt as though I had wasted precious time that could have been better spent implementing the music than simply fumbling with the upload itself.
I know others within the community who have also run into this same situation.
This has been occurring for months on my end too. Every audio I upload has a near 50/50 chance of getting declined “because VLC can’t open it” even though I test/listen to all my audios multiple times and they work fine before uploading. I export and edit all my audios through the same method using audacity, saving as a .ogg and it’s weird that we basically flip a coin when it comes to uploading audios and having them go through successfully nowadays.
Maybe it’s a problem on the moderation teams end? Just putting ideas out there.
Apologies for the confusion with this feature, but it is functioning as intended. Note from the engineer: Second round of uploads were not exact copies of the first files, and moderators were then able to approve it. If you have any further bug reports, please create a new topic for us to review.
