Audio file

Post by NileCat » Mon 12.06.2010 6:44 am

Could anyone tell me if I can upload audio files in the forum?
In the “Lessons” section, it has audio guidance like this:

I think it would be good if I can make this kind of link in the forum to explain pronunciations. Is it possible? Or is it technically impossible?
I know I can make a link to YouTube. Is there any website that I can use like an audio version of YouTube?
I'd appreciate any information.
Thank you. :)

hrm, I totally missed this post when you first posted it. :o

Actually, looking into this it appears that we can already do this! :dance:

Here's some examples of what you can already do...

Code: Select all

(You'll have to do a "view source" on the page to see what the actual audio file is for that particular audio sample... makes it a little trickier, but totally doable.)

Thanks, phreadom.
Since I’m an idiot when it comes to technical things, can you tell me how I can “upload?” the mp3 file?
All I can understand is:
1. I can copy and paste the “code” you showed me (flash~/flash)
2. I can type the name of my mp3 file instead of “kakikukeko.mp3” in the code
3. I guess I have to upload the target mp3 file somewhere. The “upload attachment” gives me back “The extension mp3 is not allowed”.
4. I know some “uploader websites”, however, none of them seems to be able to keep the data for a long time

My question might sound too stupid, I'm afraid…. :blush:

Hrm... if you sent me the files, I could stick them in /audio_files/nilecat/ here on TJP or something, so you could use /audio_files/nilecat/whatever.mp3 with the player code... like

Code: Select all

[flash=225,24]http://thejapanesepage.com/audio_files/player.swf?playerID=1&soundFile=/audio_files/nilecat/whatever.mp3[/flash]
I don't know of any easy places to upload audio for linking to otherwise... :think:
