One of the 21st century’s most prevalent forms of transferring audio data between individuals or computers (besides torrenting) is through the use of URLs specific to a certain file. These links, when clicked upon, will prompt the end user to ‘save’ the file to their computer’s hard drive for purposes including editing, post-production and transfer to mobile devices.
In today’s posting, we are happy to share with our readers the quick and easy process of setting up an AudioAcrobat “Download Link” and a couple of our favorite ways this powerful feature can be implemented.
Publishing the Download Link
Before our readers can share a download link with their audience, they must first go through the act of ‘publishing’ their download link. Quick and Expanded Steps to follow…
1. Login to your AudioAcrobat account
2. Click the blue “Audio” tab
3. Click the title of the Audio you wish to publish
4. Click “Publish Audio”
5. Click “Publish Download Link”
Login to your AudioAcrobat account
Click the blue “Audio” tab
Click the title of the Audio you wish to publish
Click “Publish Audio”
Click “Publish Download Link”
Congratulations — you’re almost there! At this point, our readers should see several further publishing options on the page labeled, “Publish Download Link“, including the Audio File URL, HTML Graphical Button and HTML Text Link. Let’s take a closer look at each description, shall we?
Audio File URL: The audio can be directly downloaded from the following URL.
HTML Graphical Button: Paste the HTML below into the source code of your HTML email or website.
HTML Text Link: Paste the HTML below into the source code of your HTML email or website.
The simplest and most widely used option is the Audio File URL, which can be highlighted using the handy, “Highlight All” button. Once the Audio File URL has been highlighted, our readers can copy using their mouse (right-click; copy), keyboard (PC: Ctrl + C; Mac: command + C) or browser option (usually Edit; Copy).
Having copied the Audio File URL to the clipboard of the computer being used, our readers are now free to paste the Audio File URL aka “Download Link” anywhere they’d like their audience to click to download. This could be within the body of an email (type something like: ‘Click Here to Download’ –> Paste URL), on a favorite social network, blog post, Word Doc, PDF or just about anywhere else links can be clicked on!
Hint: If publishing a download link to Facebook … a snazzy player is created for fans/friends to listen before downloading.
There are many uses for sharing MP3 files on the web and we believe that through the use of AudioAcrobat our readers will find much advantage in using this powerful feature.
