I've tried several times to attatch an mp3 to a post, yet every time it fails... :scratch: I have tried it with a few different mp3's, all of which were below the maximum size limit, but still... I'm met only with failure!? :frown:

I'm wondering, has anyone else had this problem? Perhaps the problem is on my end, or I might be going about it the wrong way? Any advice would be helpful, as I would really like to utilize this function. Thanks. :)

Works for me (see attachment; Ildjarn's Ouverture Part I). But uploading MP3's to the server uses a lot of bandwith and space; maybe you can try upload them at one of this places:

http://www.rapidshare.de
http://www.yousendit.com
http://www.sendspace.com

Indeed.. I would want to discourage attaching mp3's to the forum, since it uses a lot of space, and will therefore make doing backups so much more difficult.

There is a size limitation in effect - yours is small enough to attach. :)

I know, 4.77 MB it says in the list. So I chose a smaller one - like Enhjørning did, too, I think.

Are we talking about legal mp3's? I don't think it would be wise to turn tNP into a warez server.

For my experience, it's surprisingly difficult to find a free host that will accept even legal music files. Some of us may also have some free web space with their internet account, but that might compromise their privacy to use it.

Agreed Kalevi. My policy is not to allow the attaching of mp3's to this forum. Maybe we could include it in the ToS, BW? :)

There is a nice little toolbar for Firefox that integrates SendMeFile (and Bittorrent search engines, that's why I need it :P) directly into your browser, by the way.

http://sendmefiletorrent.ourtoolbar.com/

You just select the file with "Browse..." and then click on "Upload File." Can't be easier.

Agreed Kalevi. My policy is not to allow the attaching of mp3's to this forum. Maybe we could include it in the ToS, BW? :)To dump all .mp3 attachments just run this mySQL query:


DELETE FROM attachment WHERE extension = "mp3";

To delete all mp3 attachments larger than a certain size, run this:


DELETE FROM attachment WHERE extension = "mp3" AND filesize > 262144;

This example would delete all .mp3 attachments larger than 256kB.

You can also automatize this via vB Cron, e. g. do it monthly or before a backup.
