Why Doesn't [SONG-X] Show Up In My Playlist?

permalink   Sun, Feb 11, 2007 @ 6:35 PM
We use Flash (tm) for our embedded MP3 player. Flash (tm) only knows sample rates divisible by 11 (e.g. 44k). So MP3s that are encoded at 48k will not play properly.

Therefore, they will not have a little ‘speaker’ next to them in their song listing when you add them to playlists they will just sit there, looking pretty, but “unplayable.”

The ‘Dynamic Playlist’ creator will not return uploads that are not 44k encoded MP3s to avoid this kind of confusion.

You can lobby Adobe (tm) about Flash (tm) our can lobby the uploader to upload a 44k version of their file (using ‘Manage Files’, NOT as a new upload) but there’s not much we at ccM can do about that.

Here’s an update: Newer Flash (tm) players are now able to play MP3s with 48k encoding so that’s not a problem anymore.

It still won’t play ogg or wma or other formats.

We also will not attempt to load files that are over a certain size limit (about 13MB - for now) so you won’t see a little speaker icon next to them.
