APK Building takes too long/won't work

Hello, I've been trying to turn my work into an APK and it's been like this for 4 hours now. I've tried reloading, it did nothing. I've tried using a different device and it still wouldn't budge. It just ends with "Waiting for the barcode". Hoping y'all can help cuz I need the app for a class project.

How big are your mp3s in total?

31.5MB(10 mp3 Files)

The http://ai2.appinventor.mit.edu server has a project limit of around 30MB. You can try to compile your project on the http://code.appinventor.mit.edu server

That's a large file.

Maximum Project size on the main MIT build server is 30 Mb. :cry: so with your music files, the size of your aia file is over 31.5 Mb.

You could

  • eliminate several mp3 files in your Project and compile on the main server or
  • load your Project aia to the http://code.appinventor.mit.edu/login/ Amazon server that can handle Projects to 50 Mb.

Oh sh** really??? If I reduce the size of the Mp3 files will it work? :star_struck:

After eliminating some mp3 files, the Project should build on the main server if the aia of the app is < 30 Mb. If it is not, copy the existing aia to the code... server and compile (if the aia is less than 50 Mb).

Make a copy of your Project and try either method with the copy. Does either server work to compile?
