file not supported

I successfully uploaded amp3 file from the Audacity program to Sound Cloud. Later I used Audacity to take a clip from that mp3 file and exported it under a different title still as an mp3 and the upload to Sound Cloud was rejected as an unknown format. On my computer it still plays as an mp3 file. Any clues to what I did to cause the failure?

Check both files and look for differences with [u]MediaInfoOnline[/u].

You could try FLAC. (SoundCloud will compress it to AAC.)

…It looks like SoundCloud accepts [u]almost any (audio) format[/u] so maybe “something else” is going on.

We recommend you to upload in a lossless format like WAV, FLAC, AIFF, or ALAC. We also support a large variety of lossy formats, including OGG, MP2, MP3, AAC, AMR, and WMA.
