Is it possible to upload audio files ?

vzaar is primarily focused on video hosting and delivery but we also support the uploading, encoding and delivery of audio files.

The vzaar uploader page will automatically detect that you are uploading audio files and will present you with audio-specific encoding options:


You can use one of the convenient pre-sets (Standard, Medium or High) or you can specify a Custom value.

mp3 files are preferred, but other file formats can still be uploaded: : MP3; AAC; HE-AAC; AC3 (Dolby Digital); EAC3 (Dolby Digital Plus); Vorbis; WMA; WAV; PCM. However, we'd advise converting your audio files to mp3 before uploading for the best results.

Like your videos, we provide an iframe for embedding your audio files in your own websites. For playback, we deliver an elegant, minimal player for audio.

You can adjust the appearance of the audio player in the 'manage' page settings:


You can also resize the audio player by simply amending the width and height attributes of the iframe.

Here are a few examples of how you can customize the player according to your preferences:
