Audio files (MP3 and MP4) and the Media Web Part

Audio files are commonly in the MP3 or MP4 file format. Avoid using WAV files as these can be quite large and not optimized for the web.

Copyright Laws

Make sure you obtain legal rights or written permission to use audio files on your web page. Do not break copyright laws, you can be held personally responsible.

Optimize Your Files

Make sure the audio file is optimized for the web before uploading it to the server. Large files will slow the server and provide a less than satisfactory experience for your visitors.

  2. In the Documents folder, upload the audio files by selecting New Item.
