The Audio Solution Pack adds the ability to create audio collections, which can be used to upload WAV and MP3 files as objects. These files can then be downloaded by users, or the JWPlayer library and module 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.
- The LAME Encoder is required for derivative creation
- JWPlayer and its corresponding Islandora module can be used to play audio files in the View tab (Optional)
