Can't post Blubrry files to Patreon
« on: January 02, 2018, 12:34:15 pm »
Hello, we are offering our Patrons early access to episodes, but I cannot share our Blubrry mp3 links on their site in a post either through the link or media option.  I have been having to upload the mp3 straight from my computer.  Has anyone else had this issue?  I can post the Wordpress post links just fine, but not the mp3 links.  Thanks for your help.

Are you getting any specific type of error message from Patreon when you try to post a Blubrry media file link there?

It just says "something went wrong with your request.  Please try again."  I have tried posting the mp3 file as an audio link and under the regular link post.  Here is the file I am trying to share.  http://media.blubrry.com/doubledropkick/content.blubrry.com/doubledropkick/The_Last_Jedi_final-1_2_18_12_31_PM.mp3

The media file URL seems fine. My guess is that Patreon doesn't allow for this type of linking. I know they have their own podcast service now, so they may want everyone to upload media files directly to them for that reason. Best suggestion I can give at this time would be to contact Patreon support and ask them what's going on.
