Audio can be shared in various forms using the MediaWiki platform. While each specific method has its pros and cons, they all depend heavily on the source and type of file, and fit differing applications.
YouTube[edit | edit source]
Sharing YouTube videos is a simple and straight-forward process. While these videos are less prone to direct downloads than other media sources, they add an extra layer of protection due to YouTube's download control.
Embedded files[edit | edit source]
Embedding audio files is a simple method of linking audio, but has its own set of caveats. While the file is hosted on the wiki and can thusly be managed, there is no default download prohibition.
Embedded samples[edit | edit source]
Utilizing the same embedded file technique as above, embedded samples depends on the fact that the song itself is incomplete; this peaks interest while protecting intellectual property.
