I would like to produce a hub in my Classic Guitar series with clickable links to short mp3 or wav files to illustrate points. I've done this once already, linking directly to a wav on a personal website. This works, by giving the reader the choice of downloading the file or opening it in Media Player. But it's clunky. It would be much nicer if I could upload mp3 or wav in a capsule.
Please note - I am NOT wanting the music to open automatically!
There's another problem. If I want to illustrate four or five short sections from a longer piece, I'd need four or five separate links to the personal site, which would be against the rules.
Is there any way round this?
Use a video editor to make the music into the audio channel of a video, and use any old pretty image to illustrate it, then upload to YouTube and use the video capsule to put it in your Hub ...
Thanks Jenny -
Yes, I could do that, but all I want is the music. After all, Kenny doesn't have to have music behind his pictures on art hubs, so why should I have to have pics behind my music on music hubs
Well, you can leave the picture channel of the video blank, if you want people to focus on the music - it just might confuse them a little and possibly they might think the video was malfunctioning. You could maybe put a few words, maybe just saying "audio only", on the screen, so people relax and listen properly.
But I can understand if you don't want to mess with video editing - it may be quick and easy, but it's not the most elegant solution to your problem.
Anyway, I think you've confirmed what I originally believed, that there's no good & legal way of doing it. Pity!

Any time I add a link in the text capsule, it shows up when I save the link and turns blue. Then it disappears when I try to save the capsule. I don't remember this happening last time I edited a Hub. The affected hub...

In order to add your own video to a hub, do you have to join youtube first, upload your video, then put it in the hub capsule? I wish I could upload my videos like I upload my photos.

I am so tired of trying to second guess the requirements. It seems that it takes 2-3 edits to go from UF engagement to Feature. Could someone please check out my recent edit which I edited again after getting the...

I don't know if this has been brought up in the past, but I would LOVE to be able to place some of the capsules in the center side of some of the text blocks! It isn't always a nice layout to have them all default...
