    Hi Guys,

    OK, so I have made a wp site with a music theme. It has a music player included. problem is, WP wont allow files larger than 10 meg to be uploaded. The file I need to upload is 46 meg. Now I have compressed the mp3 to just under 10 meg, but now it sounds like it's being played through a crap short wave radio. How do I get around this problem?

    Thanks in advance for your time :)

    James :)

    What?
    Can't you upload on your server and use the file from there?

    Thanks guys. Never done that before, but I'm guessing it's a good thing to know, so I will look into it. Thanks again :)

    PS, I use Bluehost. Is Filezilla the best ftp program to use in this instance?
