Import more audio and image formats

I’ve just rolled out the ability to import a wider range of audio and image filetypes. Previously, audio was limited to just mp3 files. You can now also import .m4a, .wav, .aif, .aiff, .ogg, and .aac files.

If you’re on iPad or record your audio on an iOS device, this is a massive improvement. Most of the audio recorders for iOS only export to .m4a file formats.

For images, you can now import .png files in addition to jpegs.

Wider support for importing legacy slide show formats

I’ve also released the ability to import legacy non-audio shows created in Soundslides Plus 1.4-1.9. These “silent” slide shows weren’t very popular with either creators or viewers, but there was a small group of publications that made a LOT of these shows. There are roughly 5,000 or so shows on the old hosting service made in this format.

As I’ve said all along, I don’t want old slide shows to die just because Adobe walked away from Flash. With this last format now supported, every type of Soundslides 1 show can now be uploaded and hosted using the new Soundslides 3 player.

For more info on importing legacy shows, see the directions on the help site.
