  • If you have problems uploading your file, it may be because it is broken or badly exported. You can fix it with Adobe audition or Repair mp3 .

  • You can upload audiobooks through bulk imports, we share here the article from our help center where we show you how to do it.

  • Remember to add the "Narrator" in the metadata of the publication, since many times the author is not the same as the one who narrates. If you still do not have this taxonomy enabled, here we share the help article where we show you how to do it.
