hi there,

on the (+) side, you did understand our documentation and did the right thing. however...
we recently changed our policy at

so now only the following suffixes/formats can be "prohibited":
mp3/VBR MP3
ogg/Ogg Vorbis
ogv/Ogg Video

the other suffixes/formats can't be prohibited now because they are important for the display/setup/research of items.

apologies for that Bad News from your perspective -- we understand your concerns and desires but are trying to work with the best mix of policy/future features, etc.

I'm still unsure of the value of the file type exclusions change. Most likely my opinion is not top of the list though.

I'm certain that I would rather not see waveform images as the default in Old Time Radio. It has not reached the "shaking my cane at you" level but it does distract from the experience. Maybe you could replace it with a ticker tape?
