Casting Call - Trouble Uploading MP3s and "Huzzah!" Error MEGA-THREAD
 
Hey everyone, I'm having trouble uploading my mp3 for auditions. I work with audio all the time so I'm unsure as to why I keep getting a message stating my files are not mp3s. The titles contain no weird characters. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
VoiceSparkle

Is my MP3 not an mp3?
 
So, first of all, hiya, I'm new to this dandy little community. And second of all, when I go to upload my audition on the page, the file extension is .mp3, but then it says that that's not a valid mp3 file format. Like, what?

Yeah, needless to say, I'd appreciate any and all help because at this point, I'm very stumped.

Re: Having Trouble uploading mp3 File.
 
There's a filesize limit of 3mb. Are your mp3s smaller than that?

Make sure you don't save the file with any periods or weird characters. If u have to use a space, use an underscore (_)
I happened to me too and I renamed the file and it can be submitted after thatl

I'm having the same issue! My file names aren't weird or have spaces or special characters, I've confirmed that the file extension is mp3 and all files are below 200 kb.

I'm having this same issue and my files are below 3mb in size and do not have any strange characters in them.

says my mp3 files are invalid mp3's
 
When I submit my mp3's to submit for a project in the casting call listings, I keep getting the following error:

Your audition for Philip J. Fry was unsuccessfully submitted due to the following.
- application/octet-stream - J1.mp3 is not a valid mp3.
- application/octet-stream - J2.mp3 is not a valid mp3.
- application/octet-stream - J3.mp3 is not a valid mp3.

Please try again. If you need any help please contact an Admin or post your issue in our forums.

I have triple checked the files and they are all fine....the website is being picky or is not reading them correctly. Can you help me with this?

Re: Casting Call - Trouble Uploading MP3s
 
I am also having this issue. My file is below 3 mb and it has no weird characters in its name. The most I have for "special character" is the number 2. I have tried renaming and even recreating the mp3 through mixcraft but it has done no good. The audition file works just fine in castingcallclub. Why doesn't it work here?

Not able to submit audio files for all auditions
 
My VO audio file was created properly (MP3) and ever since the upgraded site I am not able to submit auditions. An example of the error I receive is pasted below;

" Your audition for Lindsay was unsuccessfully submitted due to the following.
- application/octet-stream - KendallCampbell_LINDSAY1.mp3 is not a valid mp3 "

Thanks for your help!

Re: Not able to submit audio files for all auditions
 
I am also having the same issue unfortunately. I've tried compressing the files and changing the names to ensure they are as simple as possible, but I am still receiving the sane errors below:

Your audition for Odin was unsuccessfully submitted due to the following.
- application/octet-stream - Odin1.mp3 is not a valid mp3.
- application/octet-stream - Odin2.mp3 is not a valid mp3.

Is there an error with the file or the application accepting it?

Please let us know.

Thanks!

Justin

Bumping this post as I am having the same issue.

Your audition for Marth/Ike was unsuccessfully submitted due to the following.
- application/octet-stream - Charge_Both_2.mp3 is not a valid mp3.
- application/octet-stream - Marth_FInal_3.mp3 is not a valid mp3.

Please try again. If you need any help please contact an Admin or post your issue in our forums.

The thing is, The sample rate and settings I used to export these two unsuccessful clips (Variable Bitrate, Medium quality; ~160kbps) is the same as the one clip with this set that was successful.

I am having the same issues.
My files are not too big, have no weird characters or spaces. And they are mp3 files.

I create them in Logic Pro X.
I've never had this issue until recently.

My files are about 300kb total, well under the 3 mb limit, and the names are straight up text. am I doing something wrong?
