.mp3 “does not meet security guidlines”?

  • Author

    I see that I am supposed to be able to add an audio file to my blog post. I use the Browser uploader, Text says, ” You can upload mp3, m4a, ogg audio files…” I find my file on the hard drive, I click Upload, I get the message “File Type does not meet security guidelines. Try another,”

    So, I try the Flash uploader. That does not show me the .mp3 files.

    So, what’s up with this. Can I or can’t I upload an .mp3 audio file?

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


    If your blog has a Space Upgrade, then you should be able to upload audio files like mp3, m4a, and ogg files. Does your blog definitely have the Space Upgrade?

    What is your blog URL?



    Usually this happens because they file you’re trying to upload has the wrong file extension, or no extension at all.

    Does the file name end with ‘.mp3’?


    Thanks, I understand.
