steps to reproduce the error

My mp3 song file works fine but when I'm trying to insert it in document it gives error. File saved as myfile.odf

insert -> Media > Audio or Video
The format of the selected file is not supported.

insert -> OLE Object -> OLE Object
create from file -> search file mp3 -> ok
The file song.mp3 is corrupt and therefore cannot be opened....

Thank you for the report.

I could not reproduce with Insert > Media > Audio or Video. The MP3 file inserted without problem in:

Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 36ccfdc35048b057fd9854c757a8b67ec53977b6
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: fr-FR (en_AU.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

Regarding the OLE Object method, my understanding is that it is not designed for files that are not documents listed in the first dialog. It needs to be a file that can be edited by LibreOffice.
See https://help.libreoffice.org/7.5/en-US/text/shared/00/00000005.html?&DbPAR=CALC&System=UNIX#ole
(which could probably clarify which filetypes are and aren't allowed)

Can you please:
- provide an example MP3 file
- paste here the version information copied from Help > About LibreOffice

Thank you!
