Can we have an audio capsule just like we have video capsule?
This has been suggested before, and we generally give the same response. If there were an audio-sharing site that operated similarly to YouTube or Google video, where the content is already policed for copyright violations/adult content, etc, we might consider it, but allowing users to simply upload audio files poses a number of problems, copyright concerns being one of them, another being that it would be extremely difficult to moderate. It would suck up a lot of resources, both in terms of me having to listen to the audio files all the way through when a hub was flagged, to make sure that it was in compliance with our terms, and also in terms of the space all the files would occupy on our servers.
Heck yeah it is.
I almost had a solution via archive.org and their java based embedded player. But alas, the video capsule was confused by it.
I am bumping this up for once.
I would really like to know what fellow hubbers think about an "audio" capsule, so that we can also use audio clips.
Is it possible (and feasible) by any chance?
Sidd that sounds like a good idea to me.!
A does raise some questions though.
If you upload from your computer, how would you control content.
what format would you use.
That is what I meant by the "feasible" part. And I agree with Paraglider that video samples don't really look great when all you want to play is an audio clip.
I am rather tech-challenged, but can we have a solution similar to how we put the pics in a forum posting. That is, host the pic somewhere else (like Flickr), and just provide the link.
That begs another question: Are there any sites that host audio clips??
Ok I realise that utube is not ideal but you don't have to watch the video . You can be reading the Hub or comments and still listen to the audio. You can even go off onto another page and the audio will still be playing.
Yes Ag, I am also using Firefox.
I guess we will have to do with your idea till Hubpages admn see any merit in this!!
Nice try Sidd . I am not going to be holding my breath on this one.lol
Back to utube!
I like the concept, but I am certain there are pros and cons.
I've asked this a few times too. I have a few classic guitar hubs that are crying out for audio samples. The 'solution' of using a video capsule with wallpaper is very inelegant.
Darn! I would be nice to have audio capsules. How about playlists?

Is it possible to have a capsule where you can upload audio files?This would be useful for one of my hubs, in which I describe different guinea pigs sounds. It would be good to be able to put those sounds on a hub. I think it would also be nice for poets, who could record their poem to go along...

I think it would be a nice feature if HubPages added a capsule where we could record audio content or at least upload it, so we could add it to our Hubs. Imagine a Hub with an engaging voice reading along side of you to keep you interested in what you are trying to absorb. ,

It will be nice if HP allow to use a capsule for storing audio clips. For example, I publish a hub on Mahatma Gandhi and to give a fine look to the hub I must be able to add an audio clip containing a short speech of Gandhiji. Why can't HP add this facility?

I have no idea what i am doing wrong. I have tried to get 2 hubs approved with no luck AT ALL. one was a video and the other and article hub. I deleted the video hub and just kept the article one but that one still isn't approvedHere is the screenshot to my most recent hub...

The biggest issue I have with all capsules having to be full width is that there now seems to be no provision for sidebar content. I've had to eliminate several sidebar text capsules because although they have supplementary information that would be useful for the reader, they just can't be fitted...

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?
