Yes No. Sorry this didn't help. Thanks for your feedback. I never had problems playing music saved directly to my computer. Also, I haven't read anything regarding the company dropping support for WMA, and I'm a Windows enthusiast and read tech news almost daily. The format you use for your music depends on how you listen to your music. Ultimately, it's a case-by-case decision.
Thanks again MS for fixing that! Regarding your iTunes problem of songs not importing, the WMA files may have been "protected" when originally ripped. Just making an educated guess, but I believe that will prevent iTunes from reading the files.
Or files may be corrupted If you can't diagnose using file properties and the settings of whatever you used to rip the CDs, I would suggest re-ripping one CD to WMA lossless and importing again into iTunes to see if it happens again.
Assuming you are using Windows Media Player to rip, be sure to check the settings to make sure you are not protecting the files.
My personal opinion You definitely should not change Ambrela - Silly Thought (File operating system just because you think WMA support may be dropped! I truly doubt that will ever happen unless something revolutionary is coming over the horizon, which is highly unlikely given the current lack of innovation in the music industry.
I am using Groove music with my music library stored in Onedrive and have recently noticed that it is unable to play any. WMA files. My music files are made up mp3 and wma files. The mp3 one's play with no problem in Groove but the wma files just get me a message saying "Sorry, unable to Any Ideas on why this is happening? I didn't notice any problems with playback until recently. This thread is locked. You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread.
I have the same question Thanks for marking this as the answer. How satisfied are you with this reply? Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site. How satisfied are you with this response? I tunes could convert only a handful. Le Tigre vs. Anyway, guess you had to be there, when in jokes I thought were worthy of a single spin just so my co-DJs would laugh for a few seconds became things people asked me to download.
Jose Gonzalez vs. General Public "Tender Umbrella" 6mb kbps mp3 I was dismissive of this when I first made it inmostly because the DIY acapella I used of "Umbrella" has sound quality issues, but nobody seemed to mind.
It sort of took off and eventually made it to Dave Wakeling's ears, who called it "fantastic," and later, to the ears of Adam Sandler, who chose it as the second of my mashups to be used in the film "Just Go With It. It was actually used in many of the "Just Go With It" TV commercials starting in November of ; buy me a drink sometime and I'll tell you all about meeting that deadline and where I actually found a copy of the "Tenderness" extended remix when the record label themselves couldn't track it down in time.
It of course took me like 10 months after the release of "Galvanize" to realize the "Empire" theme was in the same key, which is sad because "Galvanize" came out right around the same time as Episode III and I could totally have syngergized this mix into cross-promotional proto-viral pop-cultural social media dominance.
Was there a Facebook in ? Tegan liked it, Sara didn'tit got played on the radio a whole bunch. Two years later I heard this amazing remix of "Paris" done by Etienne de Crecy, and when I finally tracked that down, Ambrela - Silly Thought (File redid the whole mashup using that. Well, since I was kind of responsible for getting the brilliant Lyrics Born's "Callin' Out" added to LIVE rotation where it eventually went to 1I guess I felt a certain attachment to the song, and like so much of my work, the continual retread felt humorous to me, I guess a lot of that comedy is lost nowadays.
Michael Jackson vs. Nelly Furtado "Promiscuous With You" 7. The Wiseguys vs. I considered this a total joke back in when I made it, but it turned into one of the tracks I ended up playing out the most for many years, and probably has gotten the crowd going more often, in more diverse locales, than just about anything else I've ever made.
People love "Grease," I guess. Gnarls Barkley vs. Summer's legendary little number over the whole thing. I know there's like "Crazy" boots out there but my excuse is this was part of a mix I did for XFM so it's not like a real mashup or anything. Purchase from Beatport. New Order vs. Duck Sauce vs.
Nancy Sinatra vs. A Taste of Honey vs. Vampire Weekend vs. Bootie Traxx Volume 2 1. Mylo vs. Miami Sound Machine "Conga Pressure" 6. Gorillaz vs. No Doubt vs.
More importantly, the PC paint cover was funny to me at the time. Samantha Fox "Golden Boulevard" 5MB kbps mp3 This operates first of all as sort of a dub mix of Boulevard of Broken Songs, and was really just a goofy part of a Sixx Mixx, but then I sort of liked how it all came together, so here it is.
Electro theme night, but turned into one of my most requested tracks. Video version features added Snoop! Then made the originally intended version without any Madonna vocals. First track of mine where a fan-made video turned up. The Surfaris vs. It was one of the first things I released after the D-level fame of Dean Gray. Can you say, "self-sabotage"? Plus, another made-at-work PC Paint cover! Read more about it here. Or, um, ahem. As far as I know they never cuddled tenderly as pictured on the cover, but my photoshop fantasies are almost as satisfying.
Cake "Never Feel Good" 6MB kpbs mp3 Back in the LIVE days I received piles of suggestions for mashups, and despite appreciating every single e-mail, these suggestions are generally very annoying. First, people typically have just thought of a funny title, and have no regard for any potential musical mixing, and moreover the whole thing feels kind of disrespectful, I mean, I know mashups are silly but do you yell at your favorite bands to play "Freebird"?
Oh, I guess you do. Anyway, this idea did indeed come from a LIVE listener and intrigued me enough to try it. The sound quality is terrible to my ears, since there was no Cake acapella and I was forced to just, like, turn down the bass, but here it is, and people still ask about it.
Surprisingly, it turned into one of my biggest hits ever, getting airplay around the world and ending up in the Top 5 most-played tracks of on Seattle's C Their label did, however, from what I understand, offer promo copies to dance and Top 40 stations, encouraged by the success at C Killers "Somebody Rock Me" 6. Led Zeppellin vs. Honestly, this was a pretty cynical move, making this, since I hadn't done any rock-vs-rap things and that whole mashup style was getting a lot of attention at the time.
I think my disinterest shows in the sloppy production, but after it got lots of attention, I forced myself to revisit it in and that newer version above is tolerable. Chic vs. Franz Ferdinand vs. Now, of course Mr. Sleazy came up with the idea on his own, but it was kind of funny, so later when I did my own Beastie mix with Chic, I snuck Franz Ferdinand in there and gave it a name that was a nod to his original version and stole his cover.
Love ya Sleazy! Blur vs. Travis vs. Bit of trivia, this actually uses two versions of "Dream On," the original album version and a live performance with the supremely hokey extend-o ending followed by stadium cheers. The idea of using Aerosmith's "Dream On" for the end came to me within the last few minutes before the show's pm air time, but we had no Aerosmith CD in the studio, and it wasn't on iTunes at the time this was back before you could just download anything whenever, kids.
My original intention was to use Aerosmith, though, Ambrela - Silly Thought (File, so I eventually made a different version using that. See above. George W. Bush "Mass Destruction" I made quite a few versions of this for the LIVE Sixx Mixx leading up to the elections those seemed like the darkest of dark days, but hey, little did we knowusing various speeches by President Bush and even a little Cheney sometimes.
They're all pretty dated now but at the time, it felt like we were Ambrela - Silly Thought (File something pretty cool and edgy or whatever. Laid Back vs. Khia vs. Destiny's Child "Independent Room" 4MB kbps mp3 I don't understand why there aren't more "Waiting Room" boots - the damn thing's got like 2 full minutes of instrumental sections, it's exactly at hip-hop speed, and it's a freakin' classic. Beastie Boys vs. Rapture vs. Tiga "Hot Lovers". At the moment Howard Dean's infamous "scream" speech went viral, it occured to me how hilarious it would be to replace the inspiring Jesse Jackson speech overlaying the Crystal Method's "Keep Hope Alive" with Dean's raspy hollering.
It was a bit of trickery editing the original to "remove" Jackson I never had an instrumental and just stiched together instrumental sections. While there were perhaps hundreds of "remixes" of the Dean speech, mine became a bit of a viral hit, and even inspired a news piece on Bay Area Fox affiliate KTVU.
The station's political reporter Brian Banmiller came to interview me, and I remember at one point being so nervous that the stopped rolling and advised me to "stop moving my head back and forth so much. Anyway, it turned out that once you've made an instrumental of "Keep Hope Alive," you can just sort of put any speech over the top of it, add some echo, and you've got a pseudo-dramatic comedy gem. So I kept doing it, for the funny, whenever an amusing new Ambrela - Silly Thought (File of spoken word audio would hit the news.
The version I made using Howard Stern's voice during his controversial final year on terrestrial radio got a spin on the actual Howard Stern Show after WXRK electronic show host Liquid Todd gave it to them, but Howard sort of misunderstood the situation, demanding to know how much money the Crystal Method was making from selling a song that used his voice.
I of course have continued to be a huge Stern fan and was just giddy to have my song played brieflyalthough they never said my name or anything. New Donna "Bizarre Light Triangle" 5. Lumidee "Never Leave". So we opened the phone lines to take suggestions, and this was the best one. Outkast vs. Party Ben "Ben Ya" 10MB kps mp3 Inspired by Adam Freeland's brilliant dub-style reworking of Nirvana, "Smells Like Freeland," this is a complete complete de- and re-construction of "Hey Ya" complete with title that incorporates my name as a tribute.
Similarly to Freeland's mix, this uses nothing but sounds from the original song, although often altered significantly. It all turns out to have a kind of retro-jump-up-jungle kind of feel.
In general one of my favorite things I've ever made, it was a very time-consuming piece of work, and yet seemed to maintain a sort of integrity throughout the process. Got zero attention. This turned into a crazy phenomenon when it was put into regular rotation on LIVEand was my first taste of local "viral" fame.
