I tried to set a ringtone for the galaxy s10+.

Every time i try to change the ringtone, it tells me it cant set that file as ringtone. I tried ogg, m4a and mp3. They play fine with the media player on android, and also on pc.

I don't know how you set it as a ringtone, but what I always do is:
Connect my phone to the PC
Open file explorer and navigate to my Phone
Dig into the folder and find the folder named "Ringtones"
Then I just drag and drop or you can copy/paste the mp3 file of your choice there
After that, you go to your phone's sound settings and look for the file name of your mp3 file

I open up Samsung music, start the song in full page, and tap the 3 dots top right. Set As in the dropdown let's you choose Phone ringtone, Caller ringtone or Alarm tone.
