    Hello everyone,

    I am wondering if Sitefinity 4.0 supports audio files like .wav .mp3, etc.. I do not see it in the Library types available. How does everyone handle the need of playing sound files.

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Ivan,

    Thanks, I will have to look into it before I can ask anymore questions. However, any chance that it can be added as a feature where you can have a library of sound files that you can just place on a page and people can play the files or not really?

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Hello Andrei,

    We need to create a new control. This is not in our plans for the RTM and I cannot tell you when we could implement this feature in Sitefinity 4.0. There are may ways you can achieve your goal with a third party players and streaming from another servers.

    All the best,

    Ivan,

    In Sitefinity 3.7 there was an option to create a 'Custom Library' where all types of files were accepted. I have just had a look at the 3.7 version and successfully uploaded a .wav file. Is there absolutely no way to upload into Sitefinity 4.0 a .wav file like it was in 3.7? Even if I have to use a third party player I would still want to be able to upload a WAV file into the database. Any work-arounds?

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Hello Andrei,

    Our initial idea was to use the Documents content to store any files different than images and video. Most probably we are going to rename Documents to Documents and Files. For the time being, can you use it to upload your wave files?

    "...Our initial idea was to use the Documents content to store ANY files different than images and video. ..."
    Good idea... what happened? That means that we can even upload Open Office Documents too, no?

    "...Most probably we are going to rename Documents to Documents and Files. ..."
    Ok. Is that for the actual release?

    "...For the time being, can you use it to upload your wave files?..."
    Yes, I tried to upload a .wav file but the file filter filters everything out. Is there a way of changing the file filter to allow (All)?

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Hello Andrei,

    We will remove the limitations per file extension in Documents and you will be able to upload wav files there.
    The change will become available in the weekly build this or the next week.

    Thanks for raising our attention to this issue. It is an ommision on our part.

    Kalina,

    "...We will remove the limitations per file extension in Documents and you will be able to upload wav files there. ..."
    So that means I will be able to upload anything at all? You won't just add the support for .wav and that's it?

    "...The change will become available in the weekly build this or the next week. ..."
    I guess I have acces to the weekly builds?

    "...Thanks for raising our attention to this issue. It is an ommision on our part. ..."
    That's OK Kalina, its just that I sense a very strong smell of points. Not sure why :)

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Hello Andrei,

    I confirm that in section Documents you will be able to upload any files.
    Weekly builds are announced here. Once released, they are immediately available for download in your account.

    You are right, your suggestion smell like 50 points :))) These  were added to your profile as a sign of gratitude.
