Contributing Music
« on: Thu 12 Jun 2008 20:32:29 »
Hi,  I am new to this great site  :),  I would like to contribute some music I have but am having no luck "uploading" using rapidshare or megaupload.  Do I have to be a financial member to upload on these sites ??

I live in Petersham Sydney,  is there any member in the inner west who could help upload some music for me ?

Thanks
Voulamay

Can you give us some idea of the problems you are having uploading?

Most people here will help if we know what's going wrong for you.  :D

Thanks Beergut,  I click on browse on the Megaupload page then click on the file from my "my music" page and it won't upload.

Yeah Voulamay, as Skids is suggesting, you need to 'zip' up the selected mp3s into a .rar or .zip file first, and then upload that zipped folder - unless there's some other problem??

Ok,  was trying to upload a file (folder).

I will play around with the "zip" or "rar" form and see how I go.

Thanks

Hey thanks for this thread. I have a reasonable collection of CD's that I'm staring to upload to Rapidshare, and was wondering which section of this forum should I post links for these files.
No matter how good the equipment is, the quality of sound engineering determines the listener's enjoyment level.
Many thanks to all who share properly encoded, named and tagged files.

Upload via a website like www.asapload.com

You upload the file once and select up to 4 mirrors you want to mirror the file to. asapload (or whatever you prefer to use) will upload it to all 4 sites for you, saving you a lot of bandwidth and time.

You don't need to sign up, create accounts or do anything fancy.

once uploaded you will get the chance to create a collectors account, why do you want a collectors account you earn points for each download, these points can be used to buy a premium account.

How have people found this?  Using the rewards points to get a premium account?  So in theory you can get a premium account without forking out cashola?
