    Hi All,

    Is it possible to attach audio to a hub? If not, why not? Do you think it would be fun? I know this is about the written word but music is a valid subject and occasionally it comes with examples.

    Thanks

    Peter

    Not directly at the moment. But there is a roundabout way! smile http://hubpages.com/hub/Hi__how_do_I_wo … n_hubpages

      SunSeven has it down--easiest way is to take some music you like, clip it, and throw it into a video with a static background on YouTube.

      Sounds painful, but it's truly not.

        Looks like SunSeven has it down to a tee.

        Thanks

    If you are looking at automatically playing audio, most people agree it generally drives people away from a website.

    Youtube is a good medium though that can be used to provide optional audio and visual media.

      Hi,

      I was just looking to stick a song in a hub to illustate a point and make people laugh. Would that drive them away?

        If it does not play automatically. (but if you go the youtube way I guess it will be alright)

        If music auto-plays when you open a website, it tends to drive people away.

        Part of the reason is that a lot of people browse at work and don't want others to know they're doing it!

          Thanks for that Marisa but that wasn't my intention.
          'People browse at work'??!! Outrageous! No wonder we've recently experienced a global meltdown. Can you imagine the headlines if news got out: HUBS CAUSE WHEELS TO COME OFF. (Maybe it's just another Toyota thing.
