Initially, I installed this plugin but still couldn't upload the file types I needed. Eventually, with assistance from WordPress Support, we figured that you need to upload the files directly into the media library, and then attach them to the page. Trying to upload files directly on to a page doesn't work. Once you figure that out, the plugin works great!

Checked the checkboxes I need (btw bad UI, I didn't even know what I had to do and where I had to go after installation), but nothing changed, still can't upload the files.

The perfect way to support more file types though updates of WordPress. The developer is also extremely helpful with requests - many thanks for your support!

You can add to the list of supported types, but .mobi is a much more commonly wanted file type than many of the extensions that are listed.
