Upload Limit?

Upload Limit?
0.0 0

#1

I’m trying to upload a track to BTR, but it stops at 26% every time. I’ve tried tethering to my mobile and hardwiring in to my router, without success.

Is there a size limit for uploads?


#2

There is, but it’s supposed to be 30mb, which is plenty. How big is the file?


#3

It’s 11mb.

It gets to about 26% then goes back to 0%. I’v tried three browsers, two internet connections and multiple files.


#4

OK now I’ve posted a dropbox link using the hyperlink code and it’s not showing in my post. Also, if I refresh the page the native player appears in the post for about one second and then it disappears.


#5

If i log out in Chrome I can see the player but it is disabled.

I have also tried turning off Kaspersky - just in case it was blocking something.


#6

I’m on it! Thanks for the heads up and the clarification.

Here’s the thread, 256kbps is ok, 320 is not.


#8

What are your guy’s thoughts on 256k vs 320k anyway? I hear more of a difference between mp3 and wav than I do 192, 256, 320. Just wondered.

@holster Never even thought about 320 until I started posting here. Been rendering to 128 by default for years.
I can’t hear a difference on any of my playback systems.
I pull 2 of the same mix 128 and 320 into my daw tried to scope it out with SPAN without anything conclusive showing up.
I also had an “exceeded file limit” on a 10.7MB file… starting a new topic re:128/320
later

Constant vs. Variable bit rate may be more of an issue. My understanding is that VBR may not be as good when audio quality is desired. I don’t know how Brandon came to his 320kbps/Constant bit rate standard, but it seemed to work well for many years.


#11

Because - despite what some people may say - it is indistinguishable from a 44.1kHz 16 bit wav, and on an audio recording forum, where we are trying to analyse frequencies and levels down to minute degrees, anything less than that is making a bit of a mockery of the whole point of uploading files IMO.

[/quote]That is quite amazing. Cymbals in 128kbps sound like someone tearing a paper bag.

Yes, now that you mention it I believe that was his philosophy. He was a big fan of “squint mode”.

I should have the limit back up soon. I found the culprit. The software was fine. The server had reset a setting behind the scenes. I’ll need to restart the server after the settings change, but that only takes a couple minutes :+1:
