My Media Library
Your Media Library is a centralized page where you store and manage all of your files and purchased media on Indaba. This includes any files you upload to Indaba for us in sessions and contests, and profile images and audio.
Supported audio formats:
- WAV - Microsoft PCM, 2 channels, 44100 Hz, 16-bit, 24-bit, 32-bit
- MP3 - CBR, VBR, stereo, joint stereo
When you upload an audio file, it may take several minutes to process depending on the size of the file and the number of processing jobs currently in the system.
In order to make the process of managing your files easier, there are a variety of options to organize the view and display of your Media Library. The left sidebar allows you to filter the entire media library so that you can view only certain types of files or browse the recently uploaded files.
Within the main browsing window, there are a variety of different ways to organize the view. At the top of the browser, you can toggle between viewing the files in list view (default) or thumbnail form, where you’ll see more files per page with less information.
To delete a file, click on the blue “x” at the far right of the file listing. It is only possible to delete files when you are viewing the Media Library in the list view - the delete option is not available in the thumbnail view.
When you click on any file in the Media Library, the view pane on the right side of the screen will open up more detailed information about that file.
From this view pane, you can edit the file info, download the file, and view a media page for that file. The detail page is what other people will see when they go to your media, and contains comments, purchase items, sharing features, and other detailed information about the media.
At the bottom of the file info view pane, you can expand the stats section to view important statistics for your file, including number of plays, comments, and average rating.
Click on Edit File to add or change detailed information about the file. Click the tabs at the top of this window and Include as much detailed information about your file as possible.
The audio info tab is where you’ll add the basic meta-data for an audio file, and also attach an image that will be associated with the audio.
The publishing info tab is where you’ll insert information if the tracks has been released commercially, or if you plan to release the track commercially through iTunes or your My Store Widget.
The credits and royalties tab is where you’ll set the royalty distribution for the song.
The sharing tab at the far right allows you to specify who will be able to view the media page for that file, and who will be able to download the file.
Every file in your media library has it’s own unique media page. After selecting a file, click on the view media page button on the right view pane to access the media page for that file.
The media page is the “outward-facing”, public view of your files, and contains comments, purchase options, sharing functions, and all of the info that you’ve added for a file.
You will always be able to access this page, however, you can restrict who else can view and download your media by the sharing preferences for that file.
