Having problem uploading a Wav file. Trying up put a new DJ mix up to share and it keeps stopping part way through the upload and fails to start again. 8 or 9 attempts now using both Firefox and Safari.

It stops at random points.

File size 1.78GB (2.5 hours long)

Any ideas?

Hi Mark,

Thanks for visiting the help forums.

This looks like somthing that either Gina or Mathis, the main Soundcloud forum guys, will probably have to check the back end systems for to see if It maybe possible to push it through or there may be some other tricks they have up their sleeves, but they won't be back online until Monday unfortunately,

Just a suggestion in the mean time. Is it possible to convert your WAV file to a different format to upload (i'm thinking a 320kbps MP3 file)? Not sure if it will work or not, but worth a try & the smaller file size will obviously be less upload time. If still the same results, then apologies but it may help as an additional diagnostic step at the very least.

Regards :)
