Tried to use a sound file shorter than one second as a message tone. The media player couldn't play it, and it didn't show up as a ring tone.

Not a major problem since I could easily extend the file, but took me a few minutes to figure out what was wrong.

Edit: ogg & mp3

Ah. That's why my SMS ringtone isn't working and I'm getting the default Jolla-tune instead. Wasn't able to duplicate the issue with other sound files, but that's because they all last for a second or longer.

It happened to me also when I wanted to use the "coubo" sound of the Final Fantasy serie as my SMS ringtone: the sound was too short and I had to extend it with Audacity in order to make it playable by the phone.

I had the same problem today: I shorten a mp3 file and it doesn't play on the Jolla. I had to add some silence to lenghten it up to about 2.6 sec. to be played. The same short sound of an ogg format was playable, though.
