To ensure it is saved somewhere, and if all else fails, you could change it's extension to upload it. For instance if the file is called "hedeghoppers.mp3", change it to "hedgehoppers_mp3.doc". That way it'll probably upload fine, as Ancestry will see it as (in this case) a Word document, and it should be obvious from the name how to get it to play.

Sorry ReadyDale, doesn't work. Either Ancestry, or Windows, automatically adds the correct extension for the filetype.

According to the Ancestry Help pages -  when you get to the Media Gallery the "Add Media" button in the top right corner should allow you to add any supported media including audio files - that said it is "difficult" trying to find what file types are actually supported
The supported files are - 

For graphics -

For the written word -


None of which are audio or video files both of which Ancestry's help files claim that they support and can include as part of a tree. It was these file types which are difficult to track down for compatibility purposes
