How to Post Audio Files - embedded audio player

Post by Doreen Peri » November 10th, 2010, 6:32 pm

Pretty cool! We now have an embedded audio player so you can upload your audio files right here and a player will appear in the window.

Here's how to do it. It's VERY simple!
1 ) The files must be .mp3 format
2 ) Hit NEW TOPIC link on the left hand bottom of the page
3 ) Scroll down to Upload Attachment
4 ) Click Choose File
5 ) Navigate to your .mp3 on your computer & select it
6 ) Click Add the File to upload the file
7) Click Place Inline and that will put the attachment into your post. You can move it where you would like it to show up in your post.
8 ) You can, if you want, write a comment about the mp3, like it's title, for instance.
9 ) Click Preview to make sure it plays OK.
10 ) If it is working, click Submit to post it.

That's IT! What could be easier? Your audio file will show up with a player so we can listen to it right here!

To Post Audio-files from Hosted on Another Site
1 ) Click the instead).
2 ) Include the address/url between the tags.
3 ) Click "preview" and see if it is working. If it is working click "Submit" to post it.

Important note:
Please note that posted audio files must be originals or else you must have permission from the musicians and/or poets to post the file. If you post an audio file by someone else who has given you permission to do so, please link to their website and tell us something about the musician(s) or poet(s).

Doreen I have a wonderful selfportrait holiday shot with a short song interpretation of a Cheap Trick chorus that I want to post. I emailed it to myself from my cell phone. It is converted to a WAVE audio file.

I just downloaded a free audio file converter. Lets see what happens!

Jim... sounds wonderful! ... but currently the software is set up to only accept mp3s not wavs. Do you have itunes? If you do, you can convert it to an mp3 using itunes. If you don't, email the wav file and I'll convert it to an mp3 for you and send it back to you by email. Then you can post it. If you don't have my email, send me a pm and I'll send it to you!
