Description zarni02 2005-03-04 09:35:52 UTC
The 2 approved sound formats on Wikipedia are .wav and .ogg.

Attempting to upload WAV files now fails, generating a warning message:

   ".wav" is not a recognised image file format.

So WAV files can no longer be uploaded. OGG files still work.

There might be some other checking done. Have you checked that it 
really is in WAV format? Have you checked it for viruses?

'Upload warning
".wav" is not a recommended image file format.'

I'VE FOUND THE PROBLEM: "Note: Currently Wikipedia has been 
configured to only allow
uploading of Ogg Vorbis (.ogg) files. Previously uploaded files
of different formats will still work, but only Ogg files can be
uploaded. See: talk" ([[Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Sound]])
