Overview

The Audio Solution Pack adds the ability to create audio collections, by uploading WAV and MP3 files as objects. These files can then be downloaded by users, or the relevant player (JWPlayer or Video.js) can be installed to allow for playing of the file in the View tab. On ingest, the module can also use an installation of the LAME audio encoder to create derivative audio files.

Dependencies

  • Islandora
  • Tuque
  • The LAME Encoder is required for derivative creation
  • Islandora JWPlayer and its corresponding Islandora module can be used to play audio files in the View tab (Optional)
  • Video.js and its corresponding Islandora module can be used to play audio files in the View tab (Optional)
