Uploading Limits and Problems
- Is there a limit on how much I can upload?
- There is a generous limit of 5 uploads per 24 hour that you can upload to your profile, our filesize limit is 50Mb for tracks and 500Mb for mixes. This should be plenty for 99% of users to get by without hitting any restrictions.
- What media formats are allowed to be uploaded?
- Your media must be in MP3 format. Your MP3 can be uploaded at a bitrate of your choice, however we reccomend 192Kbps, this will increase your upload speeds and also allow visitors to download your media faster but also retaining high quality sound.
- I am having trouble uploading my media
If you are having problems uploading your media there are a number of things you can try to resolve your issue which include:
- Download the latest version of Adobe Flash Player from here.
- Disable any internet security software which may interfere with your upload.
- Make sure you are using the latest version of your browser, if it still doesn't work try an alternative browser such as Mozilla Firefox.
- Some security software such as ESET Internet Security is known to completely block any upload activity. The only solution is to uninstall the application and use some alternative software.
- If you are still having problems and have tried all of the above please ask in our support forums for more help.
