I can tell you in the first one, line 6 appears to be a full-on, Purchase/Subscribe multi-linked commercial. Do you have a Mystery User on your machine with you? When was the last time you did a stiff virus scan?
Are you trying to post a forbidden commercial on the Audacity forum?

What exactly do you mean? The audio file I’m using is a simple instrumental from YouTube. It comes with tags so that if you want to profit or gain full rights to it you gotta buy it. Using it in my project and asking you guys for assistance shouldn’t violate anything because I’m not
B. Advertising(intentionally anyways)
But from what i can see I guess all that link garbage and crazy numbers shouldn’t be in that line? How can I go about editing it without corrupting the files
It is not directly from YouTube, I believe. I think you have to go to the beats site and get the free download from there. That is the problem. The free download is tagged. Removing or modifying the tags on the free download, to make Audacity accept it in a project file, would make it “untagged”, and would be a licence infraction.
I think you will have to use another application to see if it can edit and resave the file without modifying the tags.
That’s why we take the time and trouble to write and maintain the FAQs (and the rest of the Manual) - and by-and-large it’s the same group of volunteers that “staff” this Forum and write the documentation.
Good to hear theat the FAQ had necessary and sufficient information for you
Actually, we knew perfectly well how to fix it all along, thanks. Depending what you did, be aware you have now violated (or potentially violated) the free licence of the file. If we had helped you, BeatsbySeismic could have come after us for aiding and abetting licence violation.
Additional information that has come to light since the initial posts in this topic, which I hope will clear up any misunderstanding:
Downloading via anything2mp3 does not guarantee that nothing is being violates. They note in their FAQ:
In this particular case, the metadata embedded in the media appeared to be very clear (emphasis mine):
This beat is available as a free download for > writing and auditioning purposes only
For untagged and/or any profitable use, please purchase a license
However, I have since found that text on their YouTube channel is more permissive:
Q: Can I use this for free?
A: If the beat ONLY has [FREE] in the title, you may use it for non-profit usage only. If you plan to make any type of money from performances, iTunes, YouTube video, or any other way, please purchase a lease from BeatsBySeismic.net.
In hindsight, if we been aware of the less strict usage terms as described on their YouTube channel I think we could have offered more help to you Seaniboi, but I trust that you appreciate that we need to be cautious regarding copyright and cannot leave ourselves vulnerable to legal claims in relation to license violations.
