ONLY MP3 UPLOADS?
This topic has been bugging me for a while!
Why can you only upload MP3 files for your songs!?!?!?! This is sooo annoying!
Most of the songs I record are in WAV format!!! Cant BandAmp just allow WAV files as well? I cant upload my new songs now because they are in WAV! Who else agrees with me? I think we should drive this down hard so we can upload more than just MP3 files!
At least just MP3 and WAV!!!

Any thoughts?

Why don't you just convert your wavs into mp3?

I tried that! I convert all of my WAVs to MP3s in audacity (i have the file source thing located to change it into an mp3) and then when i upload the file, it works, but when you press play nothing happens, and no sound comes out of your speakers or anything!!
   

Is there any other way to convert my files?

Well i use audacity too.  I think the mp3 should be 128kbps or less to work properly

kbps doesn't matter..I've uploaded at 192, 128...so on and so forth..It's the bit rate that matters..I believe it has to be 44100..been awhile since Ive had issues or uploaded anything so I could be wrong.

WAVs are MASSIVE , MP3 quality is perfect.
 
Download cursed iTunes from damed Apple , save your wavs or mp3s as (normal) mp3s and you should be good to go.
Had this problem , seen this problem , iTunes helped. (sounds like a cough remedy   )

But uploading wavs to a remote (free) server is silly!

No reason why nothing will play - as long as the file encoded to MP3 with no probs.  Not sure if the site likes MP3 Pro which squeezes a bit more into your bits!!
Make sure it's a standard MP3, bit rate of about 128 to 192 and it must be 44100 (otherwise it sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks, or ends up S L O W).  Oh, and play it first before you upload it just to make sure it all works ok

As kings points out wav are huge and it would be insane to store so many songs on that format in a remote site...Just plain crazy actually...192 128 retains pretty much the same quality ,but as mentioned it must be @ 44hz.
