Non YouTube or Google type Sound file capsule

    I have a need to put a speach and music in my capsule to highlight what I'm writing, I am wondering if we could have an additional capsule like the music players on myspace so I can without a video put an audio track on my hubs, I suppose I could somehow (not sure how) put the audio file on youtube with a still of me or something but I'd rather be able to have a simple << play stop  >> II bar that I could integrate into my paragraph without the realestate of the big square Youtube capsule.

    Would it be possible to add a capsule that would allow us to integrate an mp3 file into our capsule?

    side bar:

    Does anyone know how I would go about adding an mp3 of my music into a youtube video module so I could add it to my page? I think having an audio without video bar on the page can add some deapth to your paragraph, as without the video you can focus your readers on the paragraph and your voice without judgements on the visual of the video getting in the way of them getting your message. I would appreciate a response to this paul or hubpages, I notice alot of things people ask about are ignored, which is bad form, a simple yes or no would suffice. thank you.

      Almost anything is possible, but this is something that probably will not happen.  Among other reasons there are significant legal issues with allowing any old mp3 files to be accessed through a site.  With videos, google handles the hosting of the content and takes on most of the legal liability for us.  I don't think there is a similar option available to us for music.

        I understand, but I have another idea I would like you to concider in the same area.. profiles are our front line of those discovering us as writers here, but I would like to suggest you allow us to add a capsule for youtube onto our profiles page so we can for example record a video where we talk about ourselves, introduce ourselves in motion, and express charictor.

        This would help people with getting fans and could be a great way to introduce people to the hub pages community (to get them to sign up under us).. it would be a great help to hubers because its more impactful than a picture alone and when they read our work they will be able to step into the visual as well as written mindset of the author.

        I hope you can do this, if not I could create a hub that would accomplish the same thing and simply link them to it, but the impact would be more emmediate if we could just put it right below our picture for example even if you limited the size of the video (and they could go to the youtube page to see it bigger) it would be an innovative and cool feature.

        Another suggestion is if the video is too much eye candy for the plain but distinct look and feel of our profile I suggest you crreate a seperate page (which means more ad impression activity so this helps you help us help add value and exposure to the hub pages revenue earning potential) just for this video (so it could also be big, and include a comment text capsule for us to put a comment too) and link it in a distinct and fixed place on the profile page, essentially it would be a blue/grey box under the picture that says "see this huber in real time" or something to that effect.

        as most people are curious beings this would probably get alot of exposure on all profiles and so more potential ad clicks (hubers would format their comments under the video to reflect the same rules of exposure on google search engines only in a more focused arena), actually what could be cool is putting the link there on the main page, and whne they click it it does what our capsules do, fade the main page out then highlight and center the youtube video but instead of it being editable it would just be a video playing with your profile being a canvas, would look really classy, and to have this ability to load automatically without having to click play first would be a great asset. it would in essence be a popup in the capsule style and look which I really love, as it feels so high tech yet so analog in presentation..

        My other idea is this is a benefit for hubers on the service who talk to one another in the forum. One of our forum problems I notice is that people are reading each other wrong. As writers we are opinionated naturally, but our words don't always come across how we mean them and people get offended. I know I've read people wrong only to discover this through humbling myself and appealing to their patient side smile with the video blurb so to speak of our introduction to hubpages and ourselves, other hubers can go to their peers pages and watch them talk and express their charictor in their body language etc..

        and get a better more enlightened sense of that persons personality. Some people appear a bit rigid in writing but when you see them talk you "get it" as its not them being mean but simply being themselves (expalained better when you see them talk) so their expression could become a misunderstanding of their personality. This video could help clear up this and avoid tantrums in the forum more readily. so tis all around a great idea for hub pages and behooths you to add it.. I think it would resolve alot of things and gain more sign ups which to all of us means more money more fun and its a classy feature to have.. gives hubpages a high tech appeal.
