Default 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?

Angry 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?

Default 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!

Kendall

Default 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

Default Re: Not able to submit audio files for all auditions

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.

Default Re: Casting Call - Trouble Uploading MP3s

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.
