Audio Capsules

    I would like to see just audio capsules in addition to video.  I can think of a lot of hubs I could write that would be better with audio.  Naturally it would be at the visitors control, though, non of this stuff that blasts the snot out of them as soon as they load them page.

    Is there a third-party provider that can do it? Like Youtube does with videos?

    Otherwise I can't imagine HubPages HQ adding something that will burn through more bandwidth.

    As you've rightly pointed out, it would need to be initiated by the visitor, not auto-loading.

    Occasionally I've placed a link from a hubpage to a wav or mp3 file on my own website. Of course it's not embedded. The reader can either download it or just play it in media player. Not ideal, but at least they get to hear the music.

    You could always put the audio into a video... just use a static image or rotate images as the "video" part. smile

      Yes, you could, just like you can listen to radio on a tv, but it's using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.

    The audio player that I use will load and serve the audio from a third party site.  All hubpages would have to do would be add an interface and a wrapper for it.
