Seems that wordpress blocks the .srt and .bif extensions on uploads.

How do you get around this?

Excellent! Thanks for letting me know. It looks like an issue with 1.8. I’m working on 2.0 now and will fix the bug.

Ok after doing some digging I found that you can manually add the two mime types to your theme’s function.php

This worked for the .srt extension but not for the .bif

So I installed a plugin that lets you manually add mime types "WP Add Mime Types" and added this line to it and hit update.

bif = image/x-bif

Now both .srt and .bif files are accepted by wordpress.
