Endless buffering, never playing on WP audio player

  1. My blog doesn't seem to ever play audio files I've uploaded using the wordpress audio player; they just buffer endlessly. To check this out, go to the post Aug 30: Music and American Slavery. I've posted the audio as a downloadable file (which i DO NOT want to do) and then withing the (non-working) audio player. Find it a bit down on the page. Any help would be so much appreciated!

    The blog I need help with is fhemmasi.wordpress.com.

  2. Do these links below help? If you wish to upload audio files from your own computer, you will need to purchase the Space Upgrade. Please refer to our documentation on which specific audio files types can be uploaded to WordPress.com with this upgrade.

  3. Your example won't play because the file is an m4a. The audio player plays mp3s only.

  4. Ah, really - I didn't realize it has to be an MP3, not an m4a file. Any tips out there on a quick and dirty conversion from one format to the other? Thanks for your help, all.

  5. I use a program called Any Video Converter, and it takes many many formats. it's the best Ive used of several of those sorts of programs. Seems to have a deterimental effect on sound quality though. Itunes can convert too I believe, but is a little tricky.
